ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany city commission candidate kicked off his campaign Thursday night by picking up the endorsement of the man he wants to replace.

Christopher Pike hosted a "Pike for Progress" event.

Current Ward 3 commissioner Morris Gurr, who isn't running for re-election, was there to show his support.

Pike says his main concern is to make to improve downtown.  He says if the city can reduce crime and encourage people to live downtown, other problems will take care of themselves.

"Revitalization downtown is an important component to a vital downtown. It's very important if we want to talk about the future of our city," said Ward 3 City Commission Candidate Chris Pike.

Pike says wants to develop policies that encourage new businesses to relocate downtown.
