Flowery Branch recently had an election for city council to replace Craig Lutz. We are all aware of the good things Craig Lutz is already doing even before getting officially elected. In the Flowery Branch election, Amanda Swafford was elected by a 2 to 1 margin. Amanda defeated Chris Strickland. Many of you will remember Chris Strickland who ran against State House Rep. James Mills. At the time claimed to be a staunch Democrat. In the Flowery Branch race he decided it was better to claim how Conservative he was but the citizens did not buy it.
There are some interesting developments in this story. I will try and get more on this to you soon. For now look up the name Strickland in the Hall County inmate log.
