ALBANY, GA (WALB) - At the end of the Albany City Commission meeting Tuesday, Mayor Willie Adams passed out ballots to all the commissioners and asked them if they thought he should resign. They all voted "no," saying he needs to stay in office.

"I was fully prepared if I did not get a vote of confidence, to do what I had promised I would do. But, I was certainly elated to know that the people that i'm trying to lead have confidence in my leadership," Adams said.

Last week, The leader of the Dougherty County Taxpayers Association said Adams and City Manager Al Lott should step down because of the financial mismanagement investigation into the Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority. Adams says he has no plans to quit.
