ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's the latest rally to sweep some of Albany's city leaders out of office.

The Dougherty County Taxpayer's association hosted a meeting last night that attracted a big crowd.

Members pointed out recent allegations of mismanagement of public money.

They say they're tired of corrupt leadership and plan to put forward their own candidates for local offices.

"Every commissioner is responsible for this too because they've know about this and they've looked the other way," said Richard Thomas, Dougherty Co. Taxpayers Association.

The association encouraged members to call city commissioners and the mayor.

They want the city to stop moving forward with a $6 million bond to spur downtown development after allegations of financial corruption by the fired downtown manager.
