In a surprise to nearly everyone, the unknown candidate Homer Pyles has claimed a spot in the two-person runoff for DeKalb Commissioner District 1. His opponent is Dunwoody’s Nancy Jester. Many are asking, ‘how did this happen’? Wendy Butler ran a good campaign in Brookhaven and had the support of local media. Larry Danese was backed by SaveDunwoody and had signs all over Dunwoody and came in last place.

A simple word was placed under each candidate’s name on the ballot.. Four of the five had ‘Republican’ listed and one had ‘Independent’ listed.

The runoff of Jester and Pyles will take place next month and will be the only item on the ballot. The Dems won’t be back as the Republican vote is much bigger. Jester will not have three opponents competing for the Republican votes. We all know now that it is possible for a Democrat to make the runoff in District 1, but the chances of a Democrat winning the spot is low. Jester will need a strong turnout for the runoff. Jester owned the high-turnout, Conservative precincts of Austin, Dunwoody library, and Mount Vernon East. The fact that Brookhaven had two candidates and Dunwoody had one played a major role in this election.
