Another candidate kicked off her campaign for a seat on the Albany city commission.

Tuesday, Melissa Strother announced she's running for the vacant Ward 2 seat.

Strother wants to improve safety and infrastructure in Ward 2 and better utilize green spaces.

Strother will officially qualify Wednesday.

She says she has fresh ideas to make Albany a great place to live and work.

"I promise to bring a fresh prospective to the table and work hard for the people of Ward 2 because I am accountable to you. With deliberate changes in the right direction I am confident that Albany will emerge victorious," said Strother.

Strother holds an undergraduate degree from Auburn University, and is a graphic designer and the owner of M.B. Strother Designs. 

Pastor Ivey Hines is also running for the seat vacated by Dorothy Hubbard when she qualified to run for mayor.
