ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Just two and a half weeks before we go to the polls in the July primary.
Candidates are kicking their campaigns into high gear.
On Friday Dougherty County Sheriff's Candidate Benita Childs invited voters out for a meet and greet.
She is a 16-year veteran of the Albany Police Department.
Childs told us people in Dougherty County are false promises and are ready for something real.
"We are ready, if you're undecided look at what I'm saying, we have a Power Point here about faith based organizations, that's one solution to juvenile delinquency and gang violence. You have to put the power right back where it needs to be in the community," said Benita Childs, Dougherty Co. Sheriff Candidate.
Childs will go up against APD Lieutenant James Williams and Sheriff's Captain Kevin Sproul in the Democratic primary.
