DescriptionMatt Medders was too young to be the chairman of the Worth County Commissioners and Sherry Walls knew it. Although beating the incumbent by 208 votes Medders was a few months short of meeting the legal requirement that the commissioner for the rural county in southwest Georgia be at least 27 years old. Before she could break the story for the weekly Sylvester Local News where she worked as a reporter Medders and the paper’s editor approached her to suggest she not publish.
