Albany -- Long time Dougherty County commissioner Jack Stone is running for his sixth term in office, and announced his candidacy today.

He's served the District Six for 20 years. He says his top priorities are to continue work on the east Albany industrial park and to bring more jobs to his district and the entire county.

"The bottom line in Dougherty County is that we need jobs. That's the thing about the industrial park. I feel like it will bring some jobs to east Dougherty County. We've got the deal going on at Bobs Candies and we've got something going on at Merck Company. Hopefully, something we come out of that. We need jobs for the people in Dougherty County," said Incumbent Jack Stone.

So far, no one has announced they plan to run against Stone, but qualifying is still a few weeks away.

Jack Stone is one of four Dougherty County commissioners up for re-election this year. Chairman Jeff Sinyard, District 2 Commissioner John Hayes and District 4 Commissioner Chuck Lingle are running again.

Also up for re-election this July are 2nd District Congress Sanford Bishop, District 12 State Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen, and state Representatives Winfred Dukes, Freddie Powell Simms and Ed Rynders.

Up for election on the Dougherty County School Board are: District Two Commissioner Milton "June Bug" Griffin, District 4 Commissioner Emily Jean McAfee and District Six Commissioner Michael Windom.

Qualifying is April 24th through the 28th. The election is July 18th.
