Rep. Mike Glanton has resigned from the Georgia House.

Gov. Brian Kemp issued a call to add the District 75 seat to the March 21 special election ballot:

A source told The Clayton Crescent last week that Glanton was going to resign due to health issues. Rep. Yasmin Neal was unable to confirm Glanton’s status this morning but Glanton had missed a number of votes last session.

The Clayton Crescent left a voicemail for Glanton Tuesday afternoon seeking comment.

District 75 covers part of Jonesboro and Irondale.

Glanton was known for his support of local veterans, including an event honoring Korean War veterans at Arts Clayton in May 2021.

More to come.
