Albany- Some Albany Ministers are using their influence to try to make a change in the Dougherty District Attorney's office.

Wednesday, a group of preachers endorsed district attorney candidate Ingrid Driskell-Polite. The ministers say they often have more contact with voters than anyone.

"It takes a community as a whole to make it better. And when we're silent and not involved things don't change especially for the people who are traditionally left out and over looked," said Lorenzo Heard, pastor at Greater 2nd Mount Olive Church.

Polite is challenging incumbent Ken Hodges in the Democratic primary.
