Leaders Discuss Improving Albany

Updated:

November 8, 2007

Albany - - Concerned citizens met with local and state leaders Thursday to come up with ideas on improving our communities.

There was a big crowd for the listening session at Darton College organized by state Representative Winfred Dukes.

Albany's police chief and mayor and Dougherty County's School Superintendent were among the large group in attendance.  

"We want to see if we can identify what are the ills in our community that we as a community can address...We understand that the strength of our communities lies within our families," Dukes says.

This is the first listening session Dukes sponsored. He says he's happy with the turnout and wants to schedule a follow up to discuss implementing their ideas.
