Albany-- It was a very close race for Dougherty County Sheriff, as Jamil Saba won re-election with 56 percent of the vote, pulling out a nail biting win over James Williams.

Cheers and celebrations were heard at the Carnegie Library last night, as the friends and family of Saba get the official final results. The 67 year old Saba has been the Dougherty County Sheriff for 20 years. He wins his sixth election by a very close margin, and he admits this was a very tough night waiting for the final results.

It was much quieter at the headquarters of James Williams, but he made a very strong showing in his first political race, against a popular incumbent, and he'll live to fight political battles again.
