Macon City Council Member Henry Gibson says he has filed a complaint against District 9 Macon-Bibb Candidate Al Tillman.
Gibson says Tillman, who just kicked off his campaign earlier tonight, lives in District 8 but rented an apartment in District 9 so he could run in a smaller field of candidates.
Gibson says it's unfair, and if Tillman is allowed to run, then Gibson suggests he should be allowed to rent an apartment in another district and be allowed to re-qualify.
Gibson says he originally decided not to run because he would have to face off against his friend and fellow council member James Timley.
Tillman recently told WGXA that he we will respond to the board of elections at the proper time and is not going to play dirty politics, and this complaint is a distraction to slow down his supporters and momentum.
