Bobby Coleman and his supporters gathered at
the government center downtown as the votes were counted.
They broke into applause when they learned
he won. Coleman told WALB he's proud that he and
Commissioner Hines ran positive campaigns.
"Boots on the ground
works, we rand a grassroots campaign and it paid off and I would like to thank
the incumbent, we ran a good race and it was on the issues, there was not
mudslinging and this is what politics should be about," said Bobby Coleman.
