JOHNS CREEK ELECTION: Davenport wins council runoff


Has 66% of vote

Candidate Votes Cast

Cori Davenport 2,017 66.5%

Karen Richardson (I) 1,016 33.5%

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Political newcomer Cori Davenport has defeated Councilwoman Karen Richardson in the Dec. 3 runoff for Post 3 outpolling the incumbent by a 2-to-one margin.

The runoff was forced when no one among the three candidates Davenport, Richardson and Nancy Reinecke received a majority of the votes. Davenport was the leader going in, having around 46 percent of the vote in the General Election to 32 percent for Richardson.

With a much lower turnout (3,033 total votes), Davenport won overwhelmingly.

The election was seen as a referendum between Mayor Mike Bodker and five members of the City Council who commissioned a controversial "investigation" of the mayor that cost around $100,000 (the city has still not released the final costs).

Councilman Randall Johnson and Councilwoman Bev Miller, who resigned to run against Bodker, and now Richardson were all defeated.

Davenport joins newcomer Dr. Lenny Zaprowski on the City Council. Miller's seat remains unfilled since she qualified late in the election process and there was not time to add her seat to the ballot. In the interim, the council will continue to serve with six members.
