Walk Wins Macon City Council Special Election

Voters living in Macon’s Ward 3 headed to the ballot box on Tuesday to break a tie from April’s election regarding the Ward 3 Council Race between Chris Walk and Jeff Skjeveland, both who had received 23 votes. This time around, Chris Walk received 60% of the vote after the unofficial results were released by the Macon County Clerk’s Office. Prior to running for the seat, Walk was appointed by Macon’s Mayor and confirmed by the City Council to complete the term of councilman, Jeff Brown who moved to Shelby County. After his win in the special election, Walk will remain on council for the next two years.
