LAWRENCEVILLE - Contests are already apparent in two cities after the first day of qualifying Monday for November's municipal elections.

Former mayor Mike Jones qualified to run against the current incumbent Tim Barron in Loganville.

Sara Bacon didn't seek re-election for the City Council two years ago, but she put her name back in the hat Monday. Incumbents Ray Nunley and Chuck Bagley also qualified for the three positions.

In Norcross, former councilman Roger DeLeon qualified to run against incumbent David McLeroy. Councilman Michael Lovelady qualified to run for another term, and Keith Schewbert and former council member Julie Barks put up their names for the seat being vacated by Bruce Smith.

In Grayson, Planning and Zoning Commissioner David Schroder qualified for the position currently held by Jimmy Adams. Adams has said he won't seek re-election.
