Albany - Mayoral Candidate Marcia Felts Wimberly says the fact that her name isn't on the ballot, won't hurt her chances of winning. Wimberly is an official write-in candidate.
She says the City mistakenly refunded the checks of candidates who qualified before the November election. Wimberly says she's not giving back the money just because the City made a mistake.
"I think it's incorrect. It superceded a Federal Judge's ruling about the election. And the city, like everyone else, must own up to its mistake and that's just the way life is," said Felts Wimberly.
Wimberly says no other candidate persuaded her to become a write-in candidate. She is now sending out flyers showing voters how to cast a write-in vote for her.
Wimberly is running against Dr. Willie Adams and Tommy Coleman.
