County commissions, school boards, city councils among metro Atlanta races

Despite the big focus on the governor’s race and several hotly contested congressional races, metro counties also will fill important seats Tuesday. Here’s just a sampling with more at this link:

Gwinnett: Voters will fill District 2 and District 4 county commission seats; Lawrenceville will fill 3 city council seats; and Norcross voters will decide whether to extend the terms of the mayor and council.

Fulton: Two county commission  members, including the chairman, face challengers; there are council seats open in Alpharetta and Johns Creek.

Cobb: Two court seats will be decided, including the one held by Superior Court Judge Jim Bodiford, who is seeking a fifth term; two seats on the school board also will be decided.

DeKalb: The county is choosing a district attorney and will fill several seats on its school board.
