ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Local GOP activist Karen Kemp wants to invest her time and energy to create more jobs, cut down on crime, and improve education in Baker County and parts of Dougherty County.

Kemp kicked off her campaign at Thronateeska Heritage Center Monday night. She'll challenge Democratic incumbent Winfred Dukes for the District 150 seat in the November primary.

Kemp wants to see government play a bigger role in securing the city's safety. If elected, another top priority is bringing more jobs to the area.

It's absolutely critical we don't lose another job in Albany," said Kemp."I think it's very important we bring our manufactures and large employers to the table. We need to work with them to create solutions that will not only retain the jobs that we have but also create opportunities for them to start rehiring again."

District 150 includes west and south Albany and Baker County. For more information on her initiatives, visit  Karen Kemp's facebook page at www.facebook.com.
