Adams, Milam promise smooth transition in DA’s office

By Walter Geiger Challenger Jonathan Adams won big enough in Lamar and Monroe counties to overcome a strong showing by incumbent Richard Milam in his home county of Butts to win the race for Towaliga Circuit district attorney in the May 24 general primary. Adams won Lamar 957-344 and Monroe 2364-1494 while Milam carried Butts 2385-1362. The final had Adams prevailing 4683-4223. The vote count went well into the night with Milam conceding just before 11 p.m. ’Serving as district attorney for the last 17 years has been the most meaningful and enjoyable part of my legal career. I am grateful to the citizens for the opportunity to do this important work. (On election night) I called Jonathan Adams, congratulated him on his win and commended him to my staff. The men and women who have worked in my office are highly skilled and dedicated to the protection of the people of our communities. I offered Mr. Adams my assistance for a smooth transition and also invited him to join us now rather than wait until January,’ Milam said last week. Adams matched Milam’s cordiality in his post election remarks. ’I am humbled by the support of the community and honored to be elected the new district attorney of the Towaliga circuit. I want to thank the voters for their confidence and I am dedicated to leading a strong, professional and ethical office that will serve the public. I also want to thank Richard Milam for his many years of service to this state. I appreciate Mr. Milam for reaching out to me and committing to a smooth and seamless transition. I look forward to working with the current staff of the DA’s office, law enforcement and members of our community to best serve our citizens,’ Adams said.
