All we can do is educate ourselves as the the candidate's records. Forget who is your "kin", your friend, friend of a friend and actually vote for whom you think will "serve" this county versus serving themselves. We have enough of those already

I AGREE!!! Sosebee's record to my knowledge is:
-She has never been sole or lead counsel on a criminal jury trial in this county or circuit
-She has ZERO experience in prosecuting felonies or running a DA office
-She has never handled a death penalty case
-She worked for George Weaver after she clerked for Chief Judge Brenda Weaver
-She still associates with George Weaver on various criminal cases
-Her campaign treasurer is George Weaver's secretary/assistant, Christy Bracken
-Up until the election, she was Chief Judge Brenda Weaver's Campaign Chairperson
-Now that Doss is out, he is supporting her

I am surprised by the Sherriff's race, coroner and chairman race. I hope the next four years is better than the last.

I'm just curious why you wouldn't vote for Shirley Sosebee since she has worked in that office for 30 years?

I was surprised by the huge turnout in the Republican primary of about 6600! The usual turnout over the years has been less than 4000. Guess the SPLOST brought folks out of the woodwork. As to who will win in 3 weeks my guess is that Sosebee will beat Hendricks for DA by a small margin and Fitts Queen will beat Kiker by a few votes. As to the Chairman's race that will be a barn burner and it is anyboy's guess. Two very well qualified candidates so we really cannot lose no matter who wins. It depends on who the losers back and the turnout which will be far less than in the first primary. And I have no clue as to who will win the Post 1 Commssion seat but would'nt be surprisedif Junior Farmer took it.

All of the above and she is unable to handle any legal matter without assistance from other attorneys...she even gets opposing attorneys to file motions for her.
