Ricky Borden of Union Hill announced that he will run for the District 4 County Commission seat held by Republican Stacy George. County Commissioner Jeff Clark turned his earlier comments about running for the County Commission chairman seat into a reality after Chairman Larry Bennich announced Tuesday he will not run. Incumbents qualifying included District 3 Commissioner Don Stisher, and county School Board District 7 representative Gary Cobb and District 4 representative Dora Woodard.

The last day to qualify is April 2 at 5 p.m. for the June 1 primary. The committee members and guests also heard from Decatur attorney Carl Cole, 29, who announced as a U.S. House candidate against Republican incumbent Robert Aderholt of Haleyville. Borden said he wants to replace George to "bring some normalcy" back into his district. I have a good, strong work ethic and for the people of my district, they need it.

Halbrooks noted she has practiced law for 10 years and four of that as an assistant district attorney. While wanting to see those who break the law prosecuted, she also said the district attorney should hold trials based on fairness and on both sides presenting all the evidence. Clark commended Bennich on his 18 years of service, Metro Settlements saying he valued his friendship and support. "Larry doesn't say enough about the good things he's accomplished," Clark said.

I'm going to run for his seat and I look forward to talking to folks. We have a lot of things on the agenda that are important to all of Morgan County like the jail issue and a new commission to deal with offenders so maybe it won't cost the county as many dollars to deal with them. Executive Committee Chairman Brian Oakes told those assembled they will have to work harder this election year because there is no governor's race or statewide races to bring out the vote. The County Commission is very, very well managed, as is the school board," Oakes said.
