ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Public Service Commission Candidate Tim Echols made a stop through Albany Monday and he's looking for your vote.

Echols, who is in a run off against state senator John Douglass, flew in to the Southwest Regional Airport to explain why south Georgia needs a voice in the Public Service Commission.

He'd like to convert city vehicles over to American natural gas instead of foreign oil. He's also against Georgia power pre-charging customers for construction of a new plant.

"We're still traveling all over the state and talking with people about keeping our energy prices low and consumers are counting on having someone on this commission who will stand strong for them and ask the tough questions and scrutinize the rate requests to make sure we're doing the right thing," said Echols.

Echols says most public service commission hearings are in Atlanta. He wants to have hearings throughout the state.
