Tim Gould is set to join the Smyrna City Council after defeating Idella Moore in a special election runoff for the Ward 6 seat.
Gould, a small business owner, received 597 votes, good for 60.4 percent, according to unofficial results from Cobb Elections.
Moore, who is retired from the banking industry, received 392 votes, or 39.6 percent, unofficial results show.
The low-turnout race only saw 989 of the 5,416 registered voters in Ward 6 cast a ballot, a turnout of about 18.3 percent.
If the Cobb Board of Elections certifies the results on Monday, as they are expected to, Gould would be sworn in at the council’s Aug. 6 meeting, according to Smyrna’s City Clerk.
Gould takes over the seat from former Doug Stoner, who resigned the seat to run for Georgia’s Public Service Commission.
