In 2010, Greg Winters and David Cooke ended up in a runoff election to fill the vacant district attorney's office in the Macon judicial district.
Winters, a Republican, won the runoff. This year, he and Cooke, who is a Democrat, will face off again for the district attorney's seat during the general election in November.
If Winters is re-elected, he plans to focus on what he's calling an early intervention program.
He says that if the judges and public defender get on board with the program that it could save over a million dollars each year, if implemented.
Cooke says he'll hone in on the safety of Central Georgia families. He says that protecting our families is the most important thing.
He acknowledges the severe crime problem in Central Georgia and in the Macon area and wants families feeling safe in and around their homes and cities.
The Macon judicial circuit includes Bibb, Crawford, and Peach counties.
