“I feel like our office has done a great job of getting organized,” she said. “We have our system where we handle things in an organized manner and I think things are working.”
Grogan, a resident of the Hightower Falls Road area, has filed his intentions to run for the Polk County Magistrate Court position.
A veteran of 13 years with the Georgia Department of Corrections and 1993 Officer of the Year, this is Grogan’s first foray into campaigning and he admits to learning while he goes.
He said he wants to run to help better Polk County.
“I think Polk County deserves better than what we have, and no one else seems to want to step up,” he said.
Grogan plans to qualify for March as of press time. He said the job might have him feeling like a “fish out of water” but he said if elected he plans to learn fast.
