Chairman will stay on the Dougherty County Commission

April 14, 2008

Albany -- The Dougherty County Commission Chairman will not run for State Senate. Jeff Sinyard says he decided not to run for the District 12 seat so he can focus on his business and family.

He also said there are too many things he wants to accomplish in Dougherty County. Sinyard started to consider running for the position last fall, and said that saying no to the opportunity has been very painful.

"Ever since I've been involved in politics for 20 years my goal was to represent the folks of Southwest Georgia in Atlanta. So this has been very difficult because that is something I'd really like to do," said Dougherty County Commission Chairman, Jeff Sinyard.

State Senate Minority Leader Michael Meyer Von Bremen has held the position for 10-years, but is not running for re-election. He is running for a seat on the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Several potential candidates have said they are considering running for the Senate seat, but only former state representative John White has formally announced his candidacy.
