As of Tuesday, Oct. 29, only 20 people had gone to the polls to vote for mayor of Danielsville since early voting opened Oct. 14 in city hall.
The race for mayor is the county’s only municipal election this year. Danielsville residents will decide between current mayor Todd Higdon and challenger, and former mayor, Philip Croya.
Higdon, who has served as mayor since he won a special election in March 2012, says there are too many goals and projects in the works for him to let go of the reins now. Higdon won a special election following the resignation of Croya just nine days into a new term.
“Danielsville requires a working, hands on mayor,” he said. Noting that owning a small business in town allows him to be available to oversee projects and meet with contractors and officials as needed.
“We have eight projects that are going on now, or will soon be going on,” Higdon said. The projects include a new roundabout at the current red light, a new water tower for the south side of town near the schools and a sewer pond renovation, as well as sewer and water line upgrades, to name a few.
