Albany-- On Election Day, November 8th, three Albany city commission seats will be up for grabs.

Monday, Christopher Pike kicked-off his campaign for Ward Three. The Albany State grad now works at Thronateeska Heritage Center and helps direct the Wildcats Marching Band.

He's one of five challengers running against incumbent Arthur Williams. "Our city is on the brink of greatness," Pike said. "It just takes a cohesive group on the city commission to really make it and take it to that next level. That's really what I'm focusing on - really trying to get issues that effect our community positive support behind them."

In addition to Pike and Williams, Morris Gurr, Hank Young, George Hawthorne, and Bob Washington all qualified for the Ward 3 post.

Freddy Grimsley is challenging Dorothy Brown Hubbard in Ward 2. No one qualified to challenge incumbent Ward 5 Commissioner Bob Langstaff, Jr.
