Local candidates speak at forum

June 22, 2004

Albany- Local candidates also got a chance to get their messages out to voters at Tuesday night's forum.

Both Dougherty District Attorney candidates spoke to the crowd.

Ingrid Polite says she would focus more on serious violent offenses.

"This does not mean that I believe that Dougherty County makes too many cases," Polite said. "What I believe is that Dougherty County makes too many bad cases."

Hodges says his record speaks for itself.

"You have experience in me. A wealth of experience that has administered and oversees 2,000 felonies a year, 12,000 misdemeanors a year, 1,500 juvenile delinquencies and over the last three months has collected an average of a million dollars a month in child support."

Hodges and Polite will both be on the democratic ballot on July 20th. No Republican is running.
