ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two years before the election, there is already a candidate who wants to be the next Mayor of Albany.

Kirk Smith says he plans to run for the top spot in the city in 2011. He says kids are disobedient, crime is widespread and drugs are in homes. Smith says he will take back the city.

Smith said, "We're going to seek ways to improve life and make life better among the people of Albany/Dougherty County."

This isn't Smith's first run for political office. He also ran for Sheriff of Dougherty County last year, but withdrew from the race.
