While not all votes were tallied at Herald press time Tuesday night, it was apparent incumbent Walter Gibson would once again serve as Bulloch County Commissioner for Seat 2B.
The totals at press time (after midnight) did not include paper absentee ballots, as they had not yet been counted.
Gibson, a Republican, held at 12,936 votes (72.25 percent) while Democrat challenger Adrienne Dobbs garnered 4,945 votes (27.62 percent).
“It was a good experience, very educating,” Dobbs said. “I really enjoyed meeting new people… and I wish Mr. Gibson the best.”
Gibson said he was amazed at the turnout of voters.
”I want to thank everyone for the great turnout and support,” he said. “I thank God and the people who have given me another four years to serve.” Gibson will be serving his 6th term as Bulloch County commissioner.
