Georgia Libertarian Uncontested for a Seat on Marietta Board of Education

According to The Marietta Daily Journal, Brett Bittner has been (essentially) elected without opposition for a seat on the Board of Education in Marietta, Georgia.

Bittner is the executive director of the Libertarian Party of Georgia.  A special election for the office was triggered when current board member Logan Weber resigned his Ward 1 seat because he moved out of state.

While it seems like a slam dunk, Bittner did caution supporters on his Twitter that an organized write-in candidate might still offer some challenge.

Bittner’s win, when it becomes official, will make him the third elected Libertarian in the state of Georgia according to LP.org.  However, he’ll only join the seven-member board for an abbreviated term, being forced to seek re-election in 2013.
