Anderson Fdcked Out Of Election Disqualification Leaves Lee With No Opposition at All By BRYAN GETER Secretary of State Cathy Cox ruled last week that Evelyn Thompson Anderson of Charlie Fuller Road, Grantville, is ineligible to run in next Tuesday's Democratic primary. Thompson qualified to run against State Senator Dan Lee (D-LaG.) in the Georgia Senate District 29. There is no Republican candidate in the race. Cox issued a one-page order last week in which she concurred with the findings and conclusions of law of state Administrative Law Judge Chris A. Foster. Foster id that Anderson had not met residency requirement to run for office in District 29. COX SAID Anderson had not lived in Meriwether County for a year when she filed to run for the office, as required by law, and was not registered to vote in the coun- ty at the time. Foster said Anderson was not a registered voter in Meriwether County until July 11, when her application for voter registration in Meriwether county was received and stamped by the Georgia Secretary of State's office. She said she registered to vote in Meriwether County in Atlanta on May 3. The judge said she voted in a Fulton County election on Nov. 6 and could not have become a legal resident of Meriwether County before the following day. Anderson said she has lived two years just outside of Grantville, in Luthersville, since she had become dis- abled. Anderson said she looks forward to suing Migon Carter and Pete Johnson for libel and Lee slander. Carter, who is from Greenville and is a counselor at Unity Elementary School in Luthersville, filed the com- plaint against Anderson. Johnson is the Meriwether County tax com- missioner who Anderson said supplied Carter with infor- mation indicating she was not registered to vote in the coun- ty. Anderson "said Carter knows she lives here since she see her drop her children at school every day and Johnson lives a half-mile from her. ANDERSON was born in Meriwether County but lived in Fulton County for 38 years and worked as an emergency room nurse at Grady Memorial Hospital until she developed multiple sclerosis. Anderson has 10 days to appeal the decision in Superior Court. LEE SAID he was proud of Cox's decision in the case. "It was about as blatant a case of residential ineligibil- ity that I've known about," Lee stated. "From what I have seen an intentional fraud was per- petrated," he continued. "It's unconscionable to me that she would take those two oaths knowing she was not telling the truth." I Work Begins Monday On Final Leg of Loop Troup County Road Crews will begin construc- tion Monday on the final leg of the North Loop Project. The first phase of the project was completed in July 1999 and connected U.S. 29 to Hammett Road. This second phase will extend from Hammett Road to New Franklin Road at the Waugh Road intersection. The Georgia Department of Transportation notified county fficials last month that funds had been approved and the project could pro- ceed. Approximately 40% of the $1.1 million project will be paid for by the DOT with the county funding the remainder of the cost. .According to Road Superintendent Jud Gilraer, crews will begin demolition of a few houses on Waugh Road and will then start on widening, grading, and paving of the road. Traffic will be maintained at all times but there will be some delays and inconven- ience to motorists. Gilmer asked that"drivers take extra precaution in the work zone due to the use of heavy equiP" ment and construction pr sonnel."
