Adel, Ga (WALB) - Two democratic candidates want a chance to be the next sheriff in Cook County.

Johnny Daughtrey says his experience at the Sheriff's office and his current position as the Lenox police chief makes him the perfect candidate to replace sheriff Charles Bryant who's retiring after 28 years.

Denny Folsom says he's the best man for the job.

He's also worked at the sheriff's office and is currently the director for the 911 Center in Adel.

Both say they have the experience and determination to get the job done but have different ideas on how to do it.

"The top priority is to protect and serve the citizens of Cook County in a fair and honest manner and make sure they are all treated fairly. Each person is equal and we need to make sure of that and each community is equal in Cook County," Folsom says.

"Our problem is the same all over the county. Our drugs are causing all types of problems from thefts and most of our problems come from elicit drugs," Daughtrey adds.

Early voting is underway.

The run-off election will take place August 5th.

The winner will take on Republican Candidate and Adel Police officer Audie Rowe.
