Candidates Speak to Voters

October 1, 2007

Albany - -  Voters got an up close look at some of the city's next leaders.

Monday night, 2nd Mt. Olive Church hosted a Meet-the-Candidates forum organized by several area pastors.

Candidates for mayor and three city council seats came out to promote their platforms and take questions from voters.  

"That's just the importance of voting. One thing that the community lacks is pushing the candidates to actually back up what they talk about during their campaigns," says 22 year old Brandon Dotson.

Much of the discussion focused on reducing crime, creating jobs,  and encouraging development.
