The Telegraph’s endorsements for Sept. 17

Election Day is tomorrow, Sept. 17. It is a very important day for Bibb County. There are 31 candidates vying for nine commission posts and the mayor’s position. Most are familiar names, many have served in elected capacity for the county and or the city. But there are several newcomers. In one fell swoop, an area that is governed by 21 people will shrink to 10 on Jan. 14. Who will sit in those positions for a three-year term is up to all voters.
