ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany residents got a chance to get up close and personal with a few candidates Saturday morning.
Candidates running for the Dougherty County School Board at-large position and Georgia Senate District-12 seat were at the East Albany town hall meeting. There voters heard from each candidate about their plan if elected.
"We certainly need to inform. Voters need to make an informed and educated decision prior to the July 15th election. So they need to hear first hand their platform, mission statements and what the candidates intend to do," said Ward 2 City Commissioner, John Hayes.
Anita Brown and Thomas Langstaff are running for the School Board at-large position. Freddie Powell Sims and John White are running for the Georgia's Senate District 12 seat.Feedback
