Albany- John Hayes was one of two people to qualify just before noon Friday. He is a banker and works for Albany Community Together.

This is his first time running for public office, but he already has plans about how to improve the county.

"In terms of creating a greater appeal for this area, one of the areas I think we have to have is an on-going concern for is economic development. I hope to work with others to create the right alliances, to collaborate with others," says Hayes.

Brenda Brown, an engineer, also qualified Friday. Former Albany city commissioner David Williams and Reverend Rance Pettibone qualified Wednesday.

A special election will be held on September 20th to fill the position being vacated by William Hall. He stepped down after moving out of the district. If there is a run-off it will be held on October 4th.
