County commission to gain new faces

There are two certainties about the upcoming primary elections: Glynn County will have at least three new county commissioners next year, and the outcome of the District 2 race is basically a formality.

Three incumbents, Tom Sublett, Amy Callaway and Jerome Clark, announced they won't seek another term in office and Republican Dale Provenzano is the only candidate to qualify for the District 2 post.

The District 1 and At-Large Post 2 races will also be determined in the July 31 primary election because no Democrats qualified to seek the post.

Two candidates, Republicans Clifford Adams and Michael Browning, will square off for the District 1 post.

Four Republican candidates, incumbent Bob Coleman, David Breland, Joyce Crosby-Deloach and John Terris, will vie for the At-Large Post 2 seat.

The one election that won't be determined until the November elections is the District 5 post, featuring three Republican candidates, Anna Hall, Robbie Tucker and Tashawnta Wells. The winner will face the winner of the Democrat race featuring Allen Booker and Gary Cook.

Candidates from both parties say accountability, taxes, affordable housing, providing services with a limited budget and fiscal responsibility are key issues.
