Albany -- A man who has run unsuccessfully for various offices will try politics again, running for a vacant seat on the Dougherty County Commission.
Bob Washington kicked off his campaign for the district three seat today. He says he'll work hard to bring about change and a better economic future for East Albany economic future.
"People have been doing a lot of talking about what they are going to do," he said. "I am interested in meeting with the Chamber of Commerce and see can we focus in on getting some big business in that area, and just really do something for that side of town that has been neglected so long."
Muarlene Edwards is also running in the special called election that will be held on March 20th. It will fill the seat left vacant when Brenda-Robinson Cutler resigned because of health problems.
Cutler also recently pleaded guilty to one count of theft by taking for stealing $19,000 from a client at the Albany Advocacy Resource Center where she was employed.
