Another Candidate qualified Thursday to run for mayor of Albany.

Former state representative John White previously announced he was in the race.

He signed the paperwork and paid his $750 qualifying fee to have his name on the November ballot.

White stressed the importance of completing upgrades at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport and making the city look better to help attract new businesses. 

"We first have to clean Albany up. It needs a lot of touching up. You have to clean up the house before company comes and we need to do that badly," said Albany Mayor Candidate John White.

Restaurant owner BJ Fletcher and former City Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard qualified earlier this week to run for mayor.
