Election just around corner

LAWRENCEVILLE - In a dozen cities, a November election will decide 27 council seats, four mayors and a school board member.

Citizens also could take advantage of a tax break in Buford and have a martini in Loganville, if local referendums pass.

From growth to revitalization to parks and police, the issues are unique to each city and each voter.
