Midway and its former mayor, Dr. Clemontine Washington, is featured on Small Town Podcast, which is run by former Hinesville resident Matt Seale.
He is currently mayor of Ocilla and said the podcast highlights small towns that are often overshadowed by bigger cities. It is sponsored by the Georgia Municipal Association.
“In each regular episode, I travel to a small town and interview a local official,” Seale said. “This gives the audience an opportunity to see the personalities of local officials in small towns and then hear about some of the things that this particular small town has to offer.”
The upcoming episode, which focuses on Washington, who is currently Midway’s mayor pro tem, will become available Monday.
Seale said he grew up in Hinesville, and knew Washington as the assistant principal when he attended Hinesville Middle School and the current Liberty County High School. In the episode, Washington discusses growing up in Midway, leaving after high school, returning years later and getting involved in local government. She served on the city council for years before being elected mayor. She’s back on the council after serving the limit of two terms as mayor.
