A defeated Dougherty County commissioner said he remains optimistic about the region's future.

District 5 Commissioner Harry James lost his seat by 600 votes to former commissioner Gloria Gaines.

He said that he's proud of reopening the Southside Library and leaving the county's finances in good shape.
