All members of the local legislative delegation have qualified for the May 20 primaries, according to documents filed with the Secretary of State.
So far no one faces opposition in the primary, and only District 137 State Rep. Debbie Buckner has opposition in the November General Election. Buckner, a Democrat, will face attorney Stacey Jackson, a Republican.
Incumbent State Reps. John Pezold (R-133), Richard Smith (R-134), Calvin Smyre (D-135), Carolyn Hugley (D-136), and incumbent State Sens. Ed Harbison (D-15) and Josh McKoon (R-29) have qualified without opposition.
There were only two qualifiers for the May 20 local nonpartisan elections Thursday. Xavier McCaskey, who lists himself as a psychotherapist and paralegal on his qualifying affidavit, is opposing Mimi Woodson for her District 7 seat on Columbus Council. Owen Ditchfield, who is seeking the at-large seat on the Muscogee County School Board, will face Kia Chambers and Nate Sanderson.
