ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff "Bodine" Sinyard says he'll make another run to keep his seat for the next four years.

Surrounded by his family, fellow commissioners and more than 100 other supporters, Sinyard announced he would again seek reelection to serve as Commission Chairman.

Sinyard says he was born in Albany, lives in Albany and will be buried here and he wants to see his hometown prosper. His primary focus has always centered around economic development and that hasn't changed.

He says though some doors have closed in Dougherty County in the past few years as the economy struggles, they will open again and he'll work to make that happen.  Sinyard said, "I think if we ever let up on economic development, everything else goes to the downside. I think the jobs are number one and it's not just a cliche, it really is."

Qualifying for elections is the last week in April, the 26th through 30th. In addition to Chairman, districts two, four and six are up for election, as are school board districts two, four and six. Qualifying ends at noon on the 30th.
