Eden wins Hall Co. tax commissioner race

By Katie Crumley
GAINESVILLE - Hall County has a new tax commissioner.

Darla Eden won Tuesday's runoff against Kent Henderson with roughly 52 percent of the vote.

"Having someone that has a certified public accountant designation to handle the $150 million of Hall County's revenue, I think is a win-win and an added benefit that doesn't cost the Hall County taxpayers any extra money," said Eden.

Eden touted her experience as a CPA throughout the campaign.

Henderson garnered just under 48 percent of the vote.
