Childs would like a debate with fellow candidates

April 5, 2008

Albany -- With the countdown to the July 15th primary for Dougherty County Sheriff underway, one candidate vying for the position spent Saturday fundraising for her campaign.

The Committee to Elect Bonita Childs held a fish fry fundraiser at the VFW Post on Philema Road.

Childs, who announced her candidacy for sheriff in January, says she's eager to share her platform with members of the community and would like to address her plans for office in a debate with fellow candidates.

"We would love a debate because I'm anxious to know why the other candidates think they can fill that position. To merely say you want to be sheriff will not make me a voter and want to get out and vote for you. I want to know what can you do for Dougherty County, what makes you different, what do you possess to bring people together." said Dougherty County Sheriff candidate Bonita Childs.

Childs, a 16-year veteran with the Albany Police Department, joins fellow APD veterans Lorenzo Lockett and James Williams in the race for sheriff along with Dougherty County Deputy Kevin Sproul and Corporate Security Investigator Kirk Smith.
