Jimmy Carter's Grandson Endorses Murray For Brookhaven Mayor

The Decatur state senator joins others in endorsing the Brookhaven mayoral candidate on the last day before the runoff.

State Sen. Jason Carter, grandson of former president Jimmy Carter, has endorsed Brookhaven mayoral candidate Sandy Murray.

Murray's campaign announced the endorsement and several others on Monday morning. Murray faces J. Max Davis to become Brookhaven's first-ever mayor in tomorrow's runoff.

Carter, a Democrat, represents portions of Decatur and DeKalb County in the state Senate.

Murray also announced the endorsement of former Brookhaven mayoral candidate Larry Danese. The day after the Nov. 6 election, Murray was endorsed by Brookhaven's first elected official in history, District 2 city councilman Jim Eyre.

While Brookhaven's elections are non-partisan, Murray's campaign identified both Danese and Eyre as Republicans.

The campaign said that former Democratic state Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond has also endorsed Murray.

Thanks, Eddie. I sell used auto parts during the day --often filling my time entertaining 9 other posters on the Patch. What do you do?

Mr. Rick P., some would say that you have graduated from used parts to used cars. Now that J. Max will be elected, the fun begins! Celebrate with a special hamburger?
