Runoff election scheduled for Dec. 6

DORAVILLE, Ga. -- A runoff election for several Doraville candidates, including the new mayor, has been set for Tuesday, Dec. 6.

During the Nov. 8 election, incumbent Donna Pittman received the most votes for mayor -- but, at 46 percent, it was not enough to re-claim the position. She will battle opponent Tom Hart in the runoff election.

There will also be a second election for two City Council districts. Trudy Jones Dean will go against incumbent Bob Roche for the seat in District 2, while incumbent Maria Alexander will run against Sharon Spangler in District 3.

The runoff will be held at City Hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

BEST SPOTS: Atlanta Haunted Houses

 

ATLANTA – Boooo! It’s the season for witches, gouls and goblins and the Where U Live team knows just where to find them. With a detailed evaluation of most of the Atlanta area haunted houses and, a little bit of, help from the Morning Team, we’ve come up with a list of the best Haunted Houses the metro area has to offer.  

The Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse (AZA) is open on Thursday through Sunday from October 6 to the 31. The events website claims that this attraction is like “nothing ever seen or experienced before”.  They boast that going through the house will feel like being in a Hollywood movie or a real-life thrill.

BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

ATLANTA – Halloween pop-up shops, the first sign of excessive candy consumption, tons of food and some of our favorite clichés. And as it stands, ‘tis the season that niche' business owners hawk goblins, gouls and costumes that look similar to some of our favorite celebrities at stores in and around Atlanta.

Pop-up shops, with their intense decorations and marquees, aren’t a nuisance as much as they’re a wonder; they provide us with an outlet, yearly and almost on cue, to outfit ourselves fabulously for parties and the likes.
