ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A political forum was held on Saturday for people in Albany to meet the candidates vying to serve them.

The Public Service Committee of the Albany Black Clergy held the forum.

Candidates for sheriff, coroner, and district attorney were just a few who show showed up to explain their platforms and answer questions.

Lawanna Farley says the forum helped her decide who she'll vote for.

"It's very informative, it gives the community a great sense of what's going on with the candidates that we have before us to choose from. After tonight I'm very well informed on how each candidate stands, and I have made a decision on which candidate I will choose, based on the information they gave from their platforms," said Lawanna Farley, Albany.

On Monday, clergy members will be charged with the responsibility of assessing and evaluating the candidates based on their performance, and will make recommendations for the support of selected candidates.
