Albany - Ken Hodges is re-elected Dougherty County District Attorney. Hodges beat attorney Ingrid Driskell Polite with about 64% of the vote.
Ingrid Driskell Polite and dozens of anxious supporters crowded around the television to watch the race results. The first update, with 2 out of 32 precincts reporting, showed Polite was slightly ahead. "2 of 32 precincts reporting, clam down we have a long way to go," said Polite.
A long way to go, and the future turned bright quickly for Incumbent District Attorney Ken Hodges. By 8:30PM, Hodges was declared the winner beating Polite by 4,155 votes. "I feel very honored the people have returned me back to office to continue the work we've done over the last eight years." Hodges will serve is third term, winning what many speculated would be a close race.
"I'm disappointed, but I think I ran a positive and effect campaign," said Polite. "I'm not going say this is my last time, I might come back. I will continue to fight for justice for all the citizens of Dougherty County, but I'll just continue to do it on the side I've been doing it for the last 11 years."
The hugs flowed at the Hodges' party, and he was quick to thank his staff and supporters. "I think the issues clearly pointed out that we need four more years of what we've had, and what we've had is an office that has delivered for victims, has engineered new programs when needed, had run efficiently. If that's what the people of Dougherty County want that's what they'll get for four more years."
Hodges received about 9590 votes, not counting absentee ballots.
