ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A former Speaker of Georgia's House wants to focus his work on bringing jobs to Georgia as the state's Labor Commissioner.

Terry Coleman brought his campaign to Albany Thursday night. He met with people at the Hasan Temple to explain how he hopes to help people find new and better jobs. He wants to work with businesses to create new jobs and fill existing ones.

"We want to improve information about job availability from businesses who want to improve our service in the labor department. We want to make sure people are proactive in spending the necessary resources to council people and encourage them," said Coleman.

Coleman says he'll create a 21st century jobs task force with new ideas to create new jobs.
