Albany -- A former Albany City Commissioner wants to take back his seat. David Williams qualified this morning to run against Ward 6 Commissioner Tommie Postell. Postell unseated Williams four years ago.
In a typed statement, Williams says Postell has failed the citizens of Albany in nearly every area over the past four years, and blames him for "getting rid" of former city manager Janice Allen Jackson. Postell has already announced he's running for re-election.
That Ward 6 seat is one of three commission seats up for grabs in November. The Mayor is also up for re-election. Four people qualified to run for elected city posts today, the first day of qualifying.
Mayor Willie Adams and Ward 4 Commissioner Bo Dorough both qualified for the mayor's race. Roger Marietta qualified to run for the Ward 4 seat and David Williams qualified to run for the Ward six seat.
Qualifying ends Friday at noon. Ward 1 Commissioner Jon Howard is expected to qualify Wednesday. So far, no one has announced to run against Howard.
