David Doss, a former Floyd County commissioner whose tenure on the State Transportation Board ended in April, is launching a bid for the state Senate District 52 seat.
“A lot of people encouraged me to take a look at that seat,” he said. “My dad served the 52nd District from 1968 to 1979, and it has sentimental value to me.”
The district will cover all of Floyd County and small parts of Gordon, Chattooga and Bartow counties under maps adopted this year for the 2012 elections.
Former Floyd County Commissioner Chad Whitefield had previously announced his intention to seek the District 52 seat.
