Everybody may be somebody in Snellville, but if you’re going to run for public office you better be ready for a fight. The mud is getting slung around as the race for Mayor heats up. Here’s some of the highlights:
Challenger Bruce Garraway resented the AJC’s characterization of him as part of Snellville’s “Old Guard.”
Garrway accuses Oberholtzer of voting against an effort to strengthen adult entertainment ordinances in Snellville. Oberholtzer says “you’re wrong Bruce.”
Former Councilman Joe Anderson claims Garraway acted improperly when he had Snellville Police unlock his car outside City Limits. Garraway responded by using an automated call to encourage people to call Joe Anderson’s cell phone.. Garraway also called for an “independent investigation” into the relationship between Anderson and Oberholtzer. Local activist Bob Griggs called on Garraway to drop out of the race and Garraway ally Councilman Robert Jenkins to resign.
