Voters in Atmore’s District 5 city council runoff race have less than a week to decide between the two candidates that will appear on the ballot Tuesday and both Michael Arnold and Chris Harrison are still hard at work trying to sway the votes.

Arnold, who received 70 votes, 36 nods behind the 106 ballots cast for Harrison, said his campaign has not changed.

“It’s still all about the people of District 5. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it,” Arnold said. “I want to be a voice for the citizens of Atmore and the people of District 5.  I want to work hard for the people.”

Harrison also said his platform has not changed and is anxious to get to work for the people of District 5, should he win the runoff.

“I appreciate all the support the first time and hope people will come back out and voice their support again,” Harrison said. “We have already elected a new mayor and voted on several of the councilmen and I look forward to working with them if the people see fit to put me there.”
