      Tift County and the city of Tifton has seen their fair share of violence this year with one fatality and a handful of shootings.

      This is not only a concern to the public, but also been brought to the attention of a commissioner who now wants to put an end to all the violence.

      Tift County Commissioner Melissa Hughes says, "I have grand children that come to this community. There are other young people that's in this community and to receive a phone call from a mother that is in tears saying that something as happened to her child, why not help?"

      Hughes is hosting a town hall meeting next Tuesday at the South Central Community Center at 6:00 p.m.
