David Doss running for Senate District 52


From the Rome News-Tribune:

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.

    Doss will be a breath of fresh air in the Senate Chamber.

    He certainly says what he thinks and even though you might disagree with him, you know where he stands.

  2. NorthGeorgiaGirl says:

    It doesn’t say what party he is running under…he gave Barnes $1,000 last year, so is he running as a Democrat?

  3. Jawgadude says:

    Doss doesn’t have a chance. This is a conservative Republican district and everyone knows Doss is joined at the hip to numerous Democrats. Heck the legislators threw him off the DOT board for former GOP state rep Jeff Lewis with Lewis pulling most of the GOP legislators and Doss getting the Dem’s and a handful of GOP’ers. Plus a who’s who of prominent republicans including current Senate 52 state sen barry Loudermilk are all suporting Floyd County Commissioner Chad WHitefield.
