CLERMONT - Only one person qualified for the special city council election in Clermont in November.<br />
Eric Thomas signed up Wednesday, the final day of qualifying.<br />
The 46-year-old Thomas is the owner of Eric Thomas Trucking Company.<br />
The special election was scheduled several weeks ago after councilwoman Debra Armour submitted her resignation in May.
The Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners (BOC) recently signed a Settlement Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), five years after an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) audit of county facilities.
