In the unofficial poll results of the Pinson runoff election for City Council Place 3 Tuesday night, George “Robbie” Roberts received 175 votes and Jeffrey “Jeff” Walden received 130 votes, making Roberts the unofficial winner.
“I appreciate (Jeff) running a very good campaign,” Roberts said
. “He was a very good opponent.”
Roberts, a local businessman, led Walden after the general election by a margin of 364 to 224. Pinson editor Cathy Leslie received 145 votes and did not make the run-off.
Roberts was one of the original members of the Pinson Planning and Zoning Commission, and is still a member of the commission.
He has also served as chairman of the Pinson Library Board since the foundation of the Pinson Public Library.
“I look forward to serving the people and working with the team that’s in place,” Roberts said. “Hopefully, I can do a good job.”
