I don’t think Mike Crotts will be in race for the 17th State Senate district much longer. According to the AJC, tax records from Rockdale and Henry County indicate that he lives outside of the district he is running in.
Crotts said Wednesday that he leases the Rockdale home listed on his campaign paperwork and is registered to vote there. Rockdale County tax records show the home belongs to Lisa A. Aaron and Carolyn W. Davis. A woman who answered the telephone at the Rockdale home declined comment. A subsequent telephone call was not returned.
Crotts said he does not live in the Henry County home, but Bray’s complaint includes a homestead exemption receipt for the property.
“I have not filed for a homestead exemption in Henry County,” said Crotts, saying the complaint is being pushed by political opponents. “Whatever that form is, it doesn’t have my signature on it.”
The receipt doesn’t have any spot for a signature. Henry County Tax Commissioner Andy Pipkin could not be reached for comment late Wednesday.
