I have no idea why he decided he needed to resign from the City Council, but Macon’s Stebin Horne has resigned to run for David Graves’ seat — not that this is a real surprise.
Stebin Horne formally resigned from the Macon City Council on Tuesday evening so he can run for state representative.
Moments after Horne resigned from his Ward V Post 2 seat, the council called for a special election to replace him. The vote is scheduled along with the coming July 18 primaries and another special election to replace retired Councilman Charles Dudley. Those elected will fill what’s left of the terms on council and face re-election in 2007.
