ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Angry taxpayers will gather in Albany Thursday night at the Merry Acres conference center to talk about what they see as problems with local government.
Richard Thomas, who is the spokesperson for the Dougherty County Taxpayers Association says they'll continue the talk of sweeping Albany clean.
Getting rid of city, county and school board members they think aren't doing what's best for the community and replacing them with new candidates.
But that's not the only topic on the agenda. They'll be discussing the pros and cons of consolidation, the Don Buie fiasco and talk about a $16 Million stimulus grant the city is considering helping a developer apply for.
But again, the biggest goal, is taking action on what they've been complaining about for so long.
"We're going to wind up our meeting talk about the sweep Albany clean campaign and the fact that, getting these leader, as they call themselves, getting these dysfunctional leaders out of office is one part, but finding new candidates to run in their place is another," said Richard Thomas of the Dougherty County Taxpayers Association.
And tonight they'll be discussing those new candidates. They'll introduce Terry Hart, who they are backing for the ward five city commission seat, against incumbent Bob Langstaff.
They'll also talk about their support for Chris Pike who is running against Arthur Williams, in the Ward three seat being vacated by Morris Gurr.
The taxpayers group will also be discussing a lawsuit they filed against the city to stop a $6 Million bond from being spent. They want Judge Denise Marshall to reverse here decision considering ADICA's former CEO Don Buie was fired and under investigation for mismanagement of taxpayer dollars.
