Albany- District 6 County Commissioner Jack Stone and his supporters set up shop at the Dixie Cafe to watch poll results as they came in, Tuesday night.

Stone has been on the County Commission for over 15 years. He said he just wanted to get at least two-thirds of the votes."District 6 is my number one priority," says Stone.

His challenger, newcomer Harold Farnsworth says Stone will do a good job, and wants voters to know they can still call him if they need anything.

Stone eeked out a very narrow victory over newcomer Lyman King in the Democratic primary,  but easily defeated Farnsworth with a 7-3 margin of victory, 2,084 to 896.
