Only one candidate, Matthew Hamby, has qualified to run for Lula City Council.
The special election will be March 19. Hamby will be on the ballot to replace Vince Evans, who vacated the post when he resigned in August.
Hamby has lived in Lula for 12 years and is the deputy chief financial officer for the city of Gainesville. He grew up in North Hall and told The Times on Tuesday that he hopes to preserve the small-town feel of Lula as the area experiences growth.
