Lingle's hat isn't in the ring

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County Commissioner Chuck Lingle won't seek re-election.

Lingle has represented district four on the commission for eight years. Before that, he served 12 years on the Dougherty County School Board.

Lingle says during that time, his wife has always supported him and never complained about his being away from home.

Now, after more than 50 years of marriage, they've decided to spend more time together and enjoy family. 

"I feel like I owed a debt to citizens to provide service as best I could and I feel like I've fulfilled that now," said Lingle.

Commissioner Lingle is a retired Veterinarian. He introduced Ewell Lyle, who has attended commission meetings for the past several months as a potential candidate for his seat.
