Pike declares candidacy for Ward 6 Post

January 9, 2004

ALBANY - With the new voting lines in Albany, qualifying has re-opened for the races.  This time around, Ward 6 has an additional candidate.

Christopher Pike, Curator of Throntateeska Heritage Center, has qualified to run against David Williams.  Pike says Albany needs fresher and more energetic commissioners. 

"I just think they've served their time, they've served the community," Pike said.   "And, we need new people with new vison that's going to come in that's young, fresh, and energetic that wants to see the city move forward."

Pike serves in several capacities on civic boards across the community.  He recently became a father for the first time to his daughter, Trinity.

Incumbent David Williams  has served as Ward 6 Commissioner for 12 years.  He says that he is doing well in his position and there is no need for change.

"I am the most qualified. I have the greatest amount of experience," Williaams said.  "There is no other candidate that can even come close to being able to give the achievements that I have done for the City of Albany."

Williams noted that he serves on several state boards and has many hours of service to the community.

Also running is Tommy Postell.  He taught in the Dougherty County School System for 38 years and also served as an assistant principal.  Postell initially qualified for the race before the court battle over the voting lines.
