Barnes-Sutton Wins DeKalb Commission District 4

Steve Bradshaw, Clyburn Halley finish a distant second and third.

Incumbent DeKalb County Commissioner Sharon Barnes-Sutton apparently has been re-eleced to the District 4 commisson seat.

Barnes-Sutton easily outpolled challengers Steve Bradshaw and Clyburn Halley. No Republicans qualified to run in the November General Election, so Barnes-Sutton is assured another term in office.

With all reporting, she won 73.20 percent of the vote, compared to 22.67 for Bradshaw and 4.13 percent for Halley.

The vote totals included mail-in ballots did not include provisionals. The provisional ballots could not change the outcome.

District 4 covers the part of the county between Stone Mountain and Avondale Estates and west of Stone Mountain.

Barnes-Sutton was first elected in 2008, becoming the first African-American female to serve as a DeKalb commissioner. She's been under scrutiny for writing bad checks and a home foreclosure, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Bradshaw is an Army veteran, a sales executive and an adjunct professor at Georgia State University.

Halley is a Navy veteran and the chief of police in Grantville, a small town in Coweta County.
