Guest Becomes Second Incumbent to Qualify for Oconee County School Board

Malcolm joins 113th Race

Incumbent Oconee County Board of Education member Mack Guest qualified for the July 20 Republican primary ballot today when he paid the $54 filing fee to seek reelection to Post 2.

Tommy Malcolm qualified for the Republican primary that will select the party’s nominee for the State Representative in the 113th District, in which Oconee County is located.

Malcolm, a teacher who lists a Watkinsville postal box as his address, joins Hank Huckaby and Kirk Shook, who qualified yesterday for the Republican primary.

Incumbent District 113 Representative Bob Smith is retiring.

Kim Argo, who holds Post 3 on the Board of Education, qualified yesterday, as did John Daniell, seeking reelection to the Board of Commissioners. Both are Republicans.

Margaret Hale, who has announced she plans to seek reelection to the Board of Commissioners, has not yet filed. She also is a Republican. The deadline for filing is Friday.

Guest, who lives at 1070 Lake Wellbrook drive in Lake Wellbrook subdivision off Daniells Bridge road, currently is vice chair of the BOE.

Argo, Daniell, Guest and Hale were elected to two-year terms in 2008 as both boards switched to staggered terms for members. The terms they are seeking now are for four years.
