A 2000 Georgia state statute which states that individuals running for any county or municipal office must have resided in the county or municipality for six months. 3. Reisin v. City. A Georgia state Supreme Court decision holding that a person running for any municipal position must reside in the municipality for three months. 4. American Jurisprudence Second section, which provides that most states have a three-month residency requirement for the purposes of eligibility to run for municipal positions. Answer the following: Which authority is primary authority and which is secondary authority? Which, if any, of the authority is mandatory authority and why?
