Don't overlook the DC commission race

November 4, 2002

Albany - An East Albany man who's new to politics is challenging a 16-year incumbent for the District 6 Dougherty County commission seat. Republican Bill Farnsworth is running against Democrat Jack Stone.

Stone says with 3 commissioners leaving office, the county needs his experience on the board. But, Farnsworth says it's time for some new blood.

"I have the experience it takes, and my record proves I can get things done," said Stone.

"There's no doubt that a change is needed," said Farnsworth. "I want to improve the commission with my ideas for this district."

Stone won the democratic primary by a margin of only 39 votes in August.
