Albany--  It was incumbents versus hopefuls Tuesday night as Albany candidates faced off to prove why they should get your vote.

Candidates for mayor and commission seats took part in a political forum at the Government Center. Each had three minutes to introduce themselves and present a platform. That was followed by a question and answer session.

Major topics were crime and jobs. Both candidates for Mayor agree economic growth is a priority.

"If 85 percent of our jobs are provided by the companies that are here, our job is to make sure that those jobs that are here, stay here," said Mayor Willie Adams.

"Expansion of existing industry is and can be as important as creating new industry, also small businesses. We have to have a city that is more business friendly," said Mayoral Candidate Bo Dorough.  

Bo Dorough also said he'd like to give more financial relief to homeowners. Mayor Adams wants to banish repeat drug offenders from Dougherty County.
