Albany -- One of the Republican Candidates for Agricultural Commission says he wants to provide 21st century leadership to Georgia producers.  

 Republican Candidate Gary Black stopped in Albany during a five city campaign flyover on the last day before the primary election. The 47 year old Black has been the president of the Georgia Agribusiness Council for the last 17 years.

 Black says he wants to make Georgia agriculture a leader in new fuel alternative sources. Black said "People want to really look at the possibilities of agriculture meeting our nation's energy needs. And I've been leading on that issue since day one. I want to lead the development of an alternative fuel industry in Georgia that is agriculturally based."

A Commerce cattle producer, Gary Black is one of four Republicans running for the Agriculture Commissioner nomination Tuesday.

Tommy Irvin has been Georgia's Agriculture Commissioner for 37 years, and is the only Democrat running for the office.
