With a resounding 72 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s runoff election, Vanessa Fleisch will become Peachtree City’s first woman mayor on Jan. 1.
Fleisch handily beat challenger and former mayor Harold Logsdon, who made it into the runoff with the second-most votes in the field of five candidates to force the runoff.
A jubilant Fleisch was all smiles and hugs with campaign supporters at what turned out to be her victory party Tuesday. That evening, she revealed that she already had made plans to have meetings with city staff members on Wednesday on the chance she might win.
