No changes in totals from Dec. 21 election
Rockdale city council members met briefly Monday to canvass returns from the Dec. 21 special east ward city council election and made no changes to the ballot totals reported after polls closed election night.
Leroy Phillips defeated Denise Holmes Wallace 42-24 for the position vacated by Melody Dawson in September.
Phillips will be sworn in during the regular council session on Jan. 13.
City Secretary Terry Blanchard said the council did not have to vote on the canvass.
“All they were required to do was accept the results and that’s what they did,” she said.
