County chairs announced for Collins

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Congressional candidate Doug Collins has announced the county chairs for his campaign in each of the counties in the new 9th Congressional District.

"These individuals are going to be my eyes, ears and voice in their separate counties when I don't have the opportunity to be there," said Collins. "I wish I could be in all 20 counties in the 9th District every single day, but that's simply not feasible. Having this group established and excited about our campaign with 40 days left is a good feeling. We have worked hard to be the candidate in this race with the strongest grassroots organization, and having these Chairmen and women in place and working hard for our conservative cause accomplishes that goal."
