Shonya Mapp and Oscar Davis Jr. will face off once again next month for the District 5 seat on Milledgeville City Council.
The duo will be pitted against each in a special runoff election since none of the five candidates collected 50 percent of the vote, plus one in Tuesday’s general election.
Mapp garnered the most votes of any of the candidates with 265 votes. Davis collected the second-highest number of votes with 193, according to unofficial results released by Baldwin County Elections Superintendent Todd A. Blackwell.
“I’m very happy because this was my first time running for elected office,” Mapp told The Union-Recorder in a telephone interview Tuesday night. “I think I did pretty good for the first time ever running. I’m so happy.”
Mapp, who works for the Baldwin County Board of Education, said she looks forward to the special runoff election on Dec. 6 against Davis.
“I’m really looking forward to the runoff election but I’m a little nervous because I will be going up against that Davis name again,” Mapp said. “His name is so well known throughout Milledgeville.”
Attempts to reach Davis for comment Tuesday night were unsuccessful.
Votes for the other three candidates in the race were:
- Nicholas Bolston with 91 votes.
- Jessica “Jess” McQuain with 86 votes.
- Benjamin Lewis with 66 votes.
