In just over two weeks, Gray is among several Central Georgia counties that will have a new mayor.
The Jones County mayor may be a part-time job, but it's a full-time responsibility.
Gus Wilson has filled the shoes for four years and is seeking re-election.
"I'm not a yes person. If I disagree, I'll stand up and tell you. I fight for our citizens," said Wilson.
He's running against Stephen Tingen who moved to Gray two years ago.
"I want to do my part to make sure that Gray stays a family-oriented small town with family values," Tingen said.
There's almost a twenty year age gap between the candidates.
Tingen runs a transportation business from home, and Wilson is a private contractor who remove bodies for Bibb County.
The mayor hopes to concentrate on building a waste water treatment plant for city and further develop downtown Gray.
"We've got one part of town that's real pretty, and we've got another side that's a bus light and some other things we'd like to change," said Wilson.
Tingen's focus is on schools and community involvement
"When you have a city event and you bring in the school in it, you bring your community in to it," said Tingen.
The newcomer hit the streets for more three weeks to make introductions and to get his name around town.
Wilson is relying on experience rather than yard signs.
Whichever the strategy, both men will need the votes come election day.
Jones County's early voting ends November first. Election day is November 5th.
