2007 City Election Results

There are two new Dothan City Commissioners Wednesday morning after two incumbents lose out to new comers.

In District 4, incumbent Jason Rudd loses his seat to John Craig. The unofficial numbers show Rudd received 810 votes to Craig's 930.

In the District 6 race Keith Seagle received 1,013 votes to incumbent Phillip Tidwell's 942.

In District 2, unofficial results, incumbent Amos Newsome wins with 554 votes to Mike Smith's 318 votes.

That makes Newsome the only City Commissioner in Tuesday’s election to retain his seat.

"The top priority for the City of Dothan is going to be water, it's going to be a landfill and it's going to be a sewage treatment plant; these are top priorities. Of course we are going to continue to improve our vehicles, we're going to continue working on our streets and we're going to continue making the necessary changes to our communications system and our police," said Newsome.

John Craig and Keith Seagle will assume their positions on the city commission on October first.

      Jason Rudd, Phillip Tidwell and the Dothan Eagle think that the losers lost because they passed a 1% sales tax. The reason they lost is that they didn't abide by the wishes of the voters that put them in office. The tax was only one issue. First of all with Dothan growing and adding new businesses at a record rate the tax increase wouldn't be needed if the city managed it's money properly. As the price of everything goes up so does the taxes accordingly. They spent over a million dollars on a new garbage system that only picks up once a week. The trucks use twice as much fuel as they now have to travel both ways on a street and they wear out twice as fast. The Cloverdale neighborhood said they didn't want a truck stop in their front yards but got one anyway. The list goes on. I can't wait to vote out our mayor, Pat Thomas.
