Albany - Improving air travel in Albany and saving the Radium Casino are just two concerns Dougherty County leaders are taking to our U.S. lawmakers. On March 4th in Washington D.C., leaders plan to ask U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop and Senators Zell Miller and Saxby Chambliss for support on many Albany projects.

Preserving the Casino and improving the service at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport top the wish list. "We would like to see more flights, cheaper ticket costs, and better scheduling for air travel in and out of Albany," said Tim Martin, Chamber of Commerce President.

While at the nation's capital, the county representative will also meet with Pentagon officials to discuss the on-goings at the Marine Base.
