Cherokee Tribune – Qualifying to replace late Rep Hill s seat to run Nov 18 to 20

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has set the qualifying period for the Jan. 7 special election to replace the late state Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton) in the District 22 House of Representatives seat.

Qualifying will run from Nov. 18 to 20 at the Secretary of State’s Office and will cost the candidates a $400 fee to go after the seat left vacant by Hill, who died after a fight with leukemia in late October, said Cody Whitlock, spokesman for Kemp.

So far, at least five district residents have said they plan to run for the seat covering parts of Cherokee, Forsyth and Fulton counties.

On Saturday, Meagan Biello, Nate Cochran, Jeff Duncan and Sam Moore spoke before the Cherokee County Republican Party and announced they would be running.

Another resident, Francis Parmar, said he would be running Sunday.

Biello is a Creekview High teacher and the daughter-in-law of former Cherokee County Commissioner J.J. Biello.

Cochran is an attorney in Canton.

Moore is a long-time Cherokee resident who says he is working to start a small business.

Duncan is the former Cherokee GOP chair and a recent addition to the Cherokee Resource Recovery Development Authority.

Parmar is a former accountant and resident Woodstock. He previously ran against Chip Rogers in 2008 for the District 21 seat in the state Senate.
