DECATUR COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) – Residents in Decatur County's district one voted Tuesday night to keep their County Commissioners in office.

George Anderson represents residents from southern Decatur County, including those in Attapulgus and Fowlstown.

Anderson admits that he was nervous as Tuesday night's votes were starting to come in, but began to relax when he saw he had the lead.

Anderson is a life long Decatur County resident, and wants to continue giving back to the community, and help residents with any problems they may face.

"I want to continue to create jobs in the community and put people to work so they can have a better life," said Commissioner Anderson. "I also want to continue to improve the road conditions in Decatur County because we have some bad roads in Decatur County that we need to work on. With the T-SPLOST we'll be able to do a lot more."

Anderson said that he is also working to keep the millage rate low for residents, and believes that his previous term as commissioner has helped him learn about and grow into the county commissioner role.

Pete Stephens, who represents northwest Decatur County and Brinson was also re-elected to the county commission last night.
