Geneva Municipal Election: the finish line to the mayors seat
Greg Adams and David Hayes run head to head to fill the Geneva mayor seat
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - On Oct. 6, residents in Geneva will head to the polls to elect a new mayor.
"I love my town, I respect their votes, I appreciate any vote that we do get, and we have heard their voices,” David Hayes, Geneva Mayoral candidate, said.
Both candidates have been active on the campaign trail for the last six weeks.
"This is what I’ve been groomed for, for the past 20-30 years and I’m excited about the opportunity to move forward and work to better our city and move forward,” Greg Adams, Geneva Mayoral candidate, said.
Campaigning to be Geneva’s next mayor is coming to an end for candidates Hayes and Adams. Now it’s up to the voters to decide.
Hayes is a businessman who was born and raised in Geneva.
“Being a business owner in Geneva I do see a lot of things other people probably don’t see,” Hayes said. "The needs that we have I know that are out there, we can fill them. People that I’ve spoken with, the problems that they genuinely have not been addressed over the past few years, and that’s not to blame anybody in past administrations, they do their job fine, but there’s a need for what we’ve been pushing and what our message is and that’s to clean up our town, make Geneva presentable, get more businesses in here, make it safer. And let’s us provide something for our children, parks, recreation, learning facilities.”
Adams is a former Geneva city councilman and department head for the city.
“I’d love to clean up our cleanliness of our town and our safety of our town,” Adams said. “You know, everybody knows I’m a 30 year law enforcement veteran so those are the things I have a lot of experience in and I’m excited to be working with our police chief and all our public safety department heads in making sure we are able to keep our town safe and as far as our cleanliness, working on our properties and our areas that need the most attention so we are able to attract businesses in the future.”
One of these candidates will fill the seat of current Mayor Frankie Lindsey who elected not to seek reelection.
Voters in Geneva’s 7th district will also head to the polls to decide between Mike Bryan and Daniel Coleman.
Voting at the Geneva Community Center runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
