WARNER ROBINS -- All Perry and Centerville incumbents up for re-election have officially entered their races, and so far none face opposition.

The seat for mayor is open in Warner Robins, Centerville, Perry and Fort Valley, along with a number of council positions in those cities and Byron. Fort Valley residents also will elect two utility commissioners.
