October 2013 Group Watch: Special Elections

The results of an October 8 special election leave Charlotte Meadows and Dimitri Polizos competing in a runoff on on November 19. The two Republican candidates are vying for House District 74, which was left vacant when Rep. Jay Love announced he was resigning from the legislature earlier this year. Meadows is the former president of the Montgomery Board of Education. Polizos is a member of the Montgomery County Commission. A second special election was held on October 15 to fill the seat left vacant by Rep. Jim Barton, who stepped down after serving House District 104 for 13 years to take another job. The race drew a Democrat candidate and multiple Republican candidates, so the October election served as a primary for the Republicans. After the votes were tallied, Susan Hightower had the most, but not enough to avoid a runoff with Margie Wilcox. The runoff will be held on December 3, and the winner will face Democrat Stephen Carr in January. Hightower is the wife of state Senator Bill Hightower. Wilcox owns Yellow Cab of Mobile as well as a pair of airport shuttle companies.
