Todd Baggarly withdraws from Senoia council race

By W. WINSTON SKINNER winston@newnan.com Senoia businessman Todd Baggarly has withdrawn from the race for Senoia City Council. Baggarly was one of five candidates seeking one of two open council seats in the Nov. 8 election. At a forum on Tuesday at the Senoia Magistrate Court, sponsored by the Senoia Tea Party Patriots, forum organizer Joe Cannin told the crowd of about 90 people that Baggarly would not be present because he has withdrawn his candidacy.
"We are sorry to know he has withdrawn," Cannin said, speaking of the importance of citizen involvement in government. Baggarly and his wife, Elizabeth, operate Founders Restaurant and Bar in downtown Senoia. The former candidate is a descendant of Francis Warren Baggarly, a Methodist pastor who was the founder of Senoia. Baggarly could not be reached for comment on Friday. His name is listed on the ballots printed for early voting.
