Albany - A new Alliance is raising $600,000 to keep the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base off the cut list. The Southwest Georgia Alliance for Progress has already raised more than $300,000 to study the needs of the Base.
The money will be used to hire military experts who know what the BRAC commission considers when deciding which bases to close.
Alliance members feel confident the Base will remain open and many even be expanded. "We want to make the case that not only can we be an effective and efficient military base with 3,000 employees but also with 6,00 employees if given the opportunity," said Tim Martin, SWGA Alliance for Progress.
The Alliance also hired law firm King and Spalding - the firm where former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, a influential supporter of Georgia's bases, works.
The group is asking all 21 South Georgia counties who have residents working at the Base to donate money. BRAC is looking to close about 100 bases across the country in 2005.
