Local Democrat Supports Republican Incumbent
Friday, 24 October 2014 14:02

Despite differences in political parties, Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters (D-Lyerly) is actively campaigning for incumbent Republican Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.

"I'm for Chattooga County. The people who help Chattooga County are the ones I want to see do well. Governor Deal has been there when we needed him the most. He cares about rural Georgia," Commissioner Winters said.
The governor gets a lot of credit for helping Mohawk Industries expand its local plants. That company was weighing whether to expand in South Carolina or Georgia, according to Winters.
"When we met with Governor Deal he was extremely supportive and made sure all his departments did what is needed to make sure that expansion was approved and that we didn't lose that expansion to South Carolina, which was a possibility. I think Gov. Deal has been extremely positive for Chattooga County and I owe him my support and I urge Chattooga County to support Gov. Deal," Commissioner Winters said.

Chattooga County residents who have a difficult time paying for basic health care have a new option.
Primary Healthcare Centers, a longtime provider of healthcare services in Northwest Georgia, has opened a clinic in Summerville. The clinic, which is open Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located in the Save-A-Lot shopping center on Ga. Hwy 27 North (next to Advance Rehab.)
“We had to do some remodeling, move in new equipment and get the offices ready, but we are very happy with the office,” said Sandy Matheson, community liaison with PHC. “Our landlord, Larry Howard, has been fabulous. We are excited about the office in part because we have plenty of room to expand.”
There are six examining rooms, including one for pediatric patients.
