Stone will campaign again

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County's longest serving commissioner plans to run for another term. Jack Stone has served as District 6 commissioner for 24 years.

He announced today he'll seek a 7th term in office. Stone says he has unfinished business to take care of.

"There's a thing or two I need to stay here and get straightened out before I get out. We need to go ahead and get this Walmart done and I'm going to stay here to make sure I stand up for the people I represent about the consolidation situation so I will be running for another term," said Stone.

Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard announced last week that he will also run for another tern in office. District two commissioner John Hayes is also up for reelection and says will serve as long as his constituents keep him in office. District four commissioner Charles Lingle is serving his last term in office so he can spend more time with his family.
