AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The mayor’s race wasn’t the only big race on the ballot, with runoffs for the District 2 and District 10 seats on the Augusta Commission.

With more than 65 percent of the votes, Stacy Pulliam was elected the District 2 seat on the Augusta Commission. Von Pouncy had 35 percent.

Pulliam says she wants to start with infrastructures, such as stormwater damage and filling potholes.

“I’m going to continue to do the work that I’ve been doing,” she said. “I care about the people in my district, and I love District 2.”

And with 57 percent of the votes, Wayne Guilfoyle was elected the District 10 seat on the Augusta Commission.

Guilfoyle, who previously served for eight years as the commissioner for District 8, says he wants to improve infrastructure issues such as stormwater and street damage.

“I’m able to get along with other commissioners; it’s a proven track record. You can see it of any of the former commissioners that I’ve worked with; we were able to get things accomplished,” he said.

John Clarke, the incumbent, had 43 percent.

In the first round of the election, Von Pouncey got 14.3% of the votes while Stacy Pulliam got 45.9%.

And in District 10, incumbent John Clarke earned 49.1%, while Wayne Guilfoyle received 31.8%.

Next to mayor, the District 10 winner will be a major representative of Augusta, representing a super-district that encompasses Districts 3, 6, 7 and 8.
