Arab resident Stacy Lee George is running for Arab City Council, Place 1.
Johnny Hart, who also is running, currently holds the seat. Retired Arab firefighter Keith Meade is also running for the seat (please see other story).
The Arab municipal election is Tuesday, Aug. 25.
“I had no plans of seeking political office again,” said George, who previously served two terms on the Morgan County Commission. “I have lived in Arab about five years with my wife, Karen Brewster George, who graduated from Arab High School.
“I love Arab, but we as a city need to put Jesus Christ front and center again like in old days,” he continued.
George grew up in the Ryan community just outside Arab.
