Two Incumbents win big in Worth County

July 21, 2004

Worth County -- Two Incumbents are winners in Worth County. Long-time Sheriff Freddie Tompkins beat out two opponents with more than 53% of the vote.

Tompkins will now face Republican candidate Tony Strenth in November. And incumbent county commission chairman Dan Miller defeated former Commissioner and school board member Buford Kennedy.

"The race is not over yet and for all the people who did not vote for me I hope that they will jump on my band wagon," says Sheriff Freddie Tompkins of Worth County.

"I think that we got the right group of commissioner in this year to get things done," says Dan Miller, Worth County Chairman.

Dan Miller kept his seat with more than 52 percent of the vote.
