WALB says we have a choice for Chairman of the Lowndes County Commission.

Bill Slaughter and Gretchen Quarterman are two very different candidates. Both are running for Lowndes County Commission Chairman. Slaughter is the CEO of Waller Heating and Air Conditioning and Quarterman is a farmer and owner of Okra Paradise Farms.
"I'm very curious, I have a math and science background so I'm always asking why do we do it this way, not just what do we do, but why do we do it, what problem are we solving," said Quarterman.
"I am running as a pro-business candidate, I feel like we need to make things as easy for businesses and industries to come to Valdosta and Lowndes County and make this wonderful county their home, so we need to make a good smooth path for them to come through," said Slaughter.

In case you wondered which one I'm voting for:
"The government provides a service to everyone in our community and the people have a right to know what's going on," said Quarterman.
You can vote today through Friday this week, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Board of Elections, 2808 N Oak St., Valdosta, or on that great election day, November 6th, at your precinct.
