ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The new chairman of the Dougherty County Commission will be sworn into his position Monday. Chris Cohilas edged former commissioner Gloria Gaines in the May election to replace outgoing chairman Jeff Sinyard.
Cohilas said he is looking forward to working with city and county leaders to build on the positive momentum in Dougherty County.
"I want to build an environment of collaboration and cooperation so that we can all row the boat the same direction," said Cohilas.
He said promoting job growth will be one of his main priorities.
