Albany -- After announcing his bid for the Ward 6 seat, former Albany City Commissioner David Williams laid out his platform Saturday at a ribbon cutting ceremony in front of his campaign headquarters.

Williams, who was unseated from his chair four years ago, said he was approached by many people within his district encouraging him to seek election after expressing their concerns about the current city government.

One of the issues on Williams' platform is working with the Albany Police Department to reduce crime.

"There are some special things that can be done in target areas to reduce crime. I intend to implement or authorize those particular programs, and ask that they be funded so that crimes can be reduced at least in Ward 6. From there, we would like to have this as a model to spread to other wards, so that the crime rates can reduced overall," said Williams.

Other issues on Williams' agenda include equal alley paving in Ward 6, recreation projects, and flood recovery mitigation. The Ward 6 seat is currently held by Tommie Postell.
