Chattooga Countians went to the polls yesterday and elected a new County Commissioner.  Democrat Jason Winters got the majority vote in yesterday’s general election.  Winter’s will be taking the job from current incumbent Democratic County Commissioner Mike Dawson in January.

Winters told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio late Wednesday evening that he was pleased with the results, and was also pleased with the way the general election campaign was run.  He praised Republican Charles Black as an astute businessman and a man of integrity that ran a clean campaign on the issues.

Democratic Party Chairman Tim Shiflett also commented in our live election coverage last night on the integrity that was shown in the campaign for county commissioner.

Winters received approximately 60.4% of the vote with Black receiving around 39.6% of the vote.

Winters will be attending training for new county commissioners within the next few weeks.  The training is more extensive for sole commissioners than that of commissioners that serve in a county with a board of commissioners.
