Edwards wins District 3 seat

March 20, 2007

Albany--  A new woman will take over the District 3 Dougherty County Commission seat.

Muarlean Edwards overwhelmingly won the seat in Tuesday's special election against Bob Washington. Edwards says she has what it takes to fill the seat left vacant by Brenda Robinson Cutler's resignation.

She says her background in education and social work prepares her for the job. Edwards says she'll push for development in East Albany and other parts of the county. She says creating jobs is the key to Dougherty County's success.

"I think it lies deeper than that. I think we need to start off with the children to make sure we have the kind of educational system that prepares them for the kind of jobs that are meaningful so that they can make the kind of money where they are able to take care of a family," said Edwards.

That seat on the Dougherty County commission was vacated by Cutler in December. She cited health reasons for her departure.
