March 8, 2004
Albany- The city's new mayor got an ear full tonight from a few of his constituents during his first meet with the mayor night.

Mayor Willie Adams will hold these meetings on the second Monday of each month to hear your concerns and comments. A representative of the Southwest Georgia Minority Contractors Association says this is a good way to be heard.

In the past, "we sort of felt the head would do one thing, but then the administration would fight some issues or whatever, especially with minority contracting," said Charlie Quimbley, president of the contractors group.

The meetings will be in room 100 at the government center from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.
