Thomas Wallace Elected for Temple City Council

Temple Ga -- In a special election on Tuesday, the residents of Temple chose Thomas Wallace as the new Ward 4 City Councilman. Wallace is a retired warehouse/distribution manager for Winn Dixie.

Wallace, receiving 69% of the vote, discussed how his message reached voters. "They thought that I was sincere about what I was saying and what I wanted to do for the community," said Mr. Wallace. He also said, "I'm just trying to do what is right for the city and work with the city council and the mayor to do any kind of improvement that we can do."

Wallace shared a few words about his opponent in the race, Richard McIntosh: "I appreciate Mr. McIntosh in the tight campaign he ran. I've known him a long time and I know he's a good man."    

The seat was made vacant with the passing of William Simmons this past April.
