ATLANTA -- The Fulton County Republican Party nominated former Atlanta mayoral candidate and Atlanta City Council member Mary Norwood to the Fulton County Elections Board.

She would replace William F. Riley, who resigned.

"With the resignation of our County Party stalwart and former judge, William Riley, from the Board of Elections and the ongoing investigation by the Secretary of State's office, we had to act quickly to find someone with the high caliber of intellect and ability to effect change," Fulton County Republican Party Chairman Roger Bonds said in a statement.

"Mary Norwood is just that kind of person," Bonds added. "Her background as a small business owner, community activist and former elected official gives her the political savvy and professionalism that makes her the ideal person to continue the clean-up work Riley started."
