Gregory Adams defeated Randal Mangham this evening in the runoff for the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners’ District 7 seat.


The hotly contested race ended with Adams receiving 3,539 votes (52.24 percent) and Mangham garnering 3,236 votes (47.7 percent), according to unofficial results from the DeKalb Supervisor of Elections Office.


Adams, an Emory University Police officer, will represent about 350,000 people in the Super District, which covers the eastern half of DeKalb County. He will replace Stan Watson, who resigned in March to run for DeKalb County tax commissioner. Irvin Johnson won tax commissioner.


Adams said he plans to take office next week in time for the Dec. 13 Board of Commissioners meeting. He will join newly-elected Commissioner Steve Bradshaw who won the District 4 seat.
