February 2--  A second candidate has announced his plans to run for the Toombs County Commission succeeding retiring Fourth District Commissioner Jeff McCormick.

eddietooleEddie Toole made the announcement in a press release Thursday.

I have lived in Cedar Crossing for over 40 years and served on the Toombs County School Board from 1999-2003. I have always been concerned for the people of the county and have always tried to do what I could to make life better for those of us who live in the rural part of the county. While on the school board, I was able to work with the Sheriff's department to get the DARE program in the Toombs County Schools. I feel like it is time for me to do what I can to help all the people who live in the 4th District. I want to be accessible to all the people in the district at all times and be able to help express their concerns to the Commissioners and work to help our county grow stronger and move forward.

I am a 1983 Graduate of Toombs Central and served as State Vice-President of the FFA from 1982-83.

I attended Brewton Parker College in 1983-85.

I taught school at Ocmulgee Academy in Lumber City, where I was the Head Football coach for two years, 1986 & 1989.

I worked in my families business for over 25 years before leaving and working in the cabinet business in the Savannah area.

I am employed as a Cabinet Designer at Handy Andy in Vidalia, GA.

I have been a minister in the Church of God since 2010 and I attend Cedar Crossing Church of God with my family. 

I live with my family in Cedar Crossing. Penny and I have two daughters, Amber Galbreath (husband Chris) and Ashley Summerlin (husband Marcus). Both of my daughters work at Meadows Health, Chris is a Marine Corps Veteran and is employed at Plant Hatch and Marcus drives delivery trucks for Handy Andy in Vidalia. My family is important to me and so is this county. I want to serve the people of the 4th district because I was born to serve. 

For more information on my candidacy, you can reach me at 912-293-9865.

I will be running as a Republican.

Earlier Tommy Rollins announced his candidacy.
