Qualifying for the May 20 and Nov. 4 elections continued Tuesday. Tim Denson formally challenged Mayor Nancy Denson, but no one has signed up for several local offices, and a number of races remain uncontested.
Here's a look at who'll be on the Athens ballot so far:
The state House of Representatives moved Monday night to outlaw University of Georgia and other state employees from implementing or even talking about the Affordable Care Act.
"This bill would prevent state agencies, local governments or even their employees from advocating on behalf of Medicaid expansion," said Tim Sweeney, director of health care policy at the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute.
"Among other consequences, it would effectively shut down the University of Georgia’s federally-funded Health Care Marketplace navigator program that helps insurance shoppers understand complex plan options," Sweeney said. "This amounts to cutting off our nose to spite our face."
The mayors of 12 Georgia cities—including Atlanta's Kasim Reed, Augusta's Deke Copenhaver, Macon's Robert Reichert and the heads of such liberal bastions as Roswell and McRae—signed a letter to state leaders today urging them to reject House Bill 875, which would broadly expand where Georgians can carry guns.
