Albany -- A Dougherty County commissioner announces her bid for re-election.

District 3 Commissioner Maurlean Edwards won a special election and has only been on the board about a year.

She's running for a full 4-year term and says she'll focus her campaign on healthcare and providing better services for the elderly and children.

"In all of the courses I have taken they teach we can not bring economic development, we can not raise taxes, we won't have anybody unless we save our children. They take our places and we have to prepare them. It's better for the development of Albany and Dougherty County," said Edwards.

Edwards was sworn in March of last year after Brenda Robinson-Cutler stepped down.
