D.A. Hodges kicks off re-election campaign

June 15, 2004

Albany - An emotional kickoff for Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges' re-election campaign. There were tears at his campaign headquarters Tuesday as several crime victims and their families thanked Hodges for prosecuting their attackers. They urged voters to keep him in the District Attorney office.

"All the victims here in Dougherty County need someone who will zealously represent their interest," said District Attorney, Ken Hodges. "My opponent has said that we're prosecuting too many cases. But if you become the victim of a violent crime, you want a prosecutor in there as your District Attorney, not a criminal defense lawyer who's already stated they want to push the cases away."

Attorney Ingrid Polite is running against Hodges in the democratic primary.

Hodges worries he may lose some votes from people who will choose to vote in the Republican primary July 20th. No republican is running in his race. Hodges has been District Attorney for 8 years.
