Mayoral candidates speak at town hall meeting

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – People had a chance to get to know Albany's mayoral candidates a little better Saturday.

They held a town hall meeting at the Law Enforcement Center downtown. John White, BJ Fletcher, and  Dorothy Hubbard spoke about their concerns and goals for the city.

Some of those goals included improvements to education, safety, teen pregnancy, hunger, and Albany's overall appearance.

 "We have to improve the looks of our city," said Mayoral Candidate, John White. "We have a lot of cleaning up to do to make us look good."

  "There are other issues like teen pregnancy, homelessness, poverty and issues we have to solve," said Mayoral Candidate, Dorothy Hubbard. "I don't believe there is anything one person can do. We all have to work together."

 "I throw away enough to feed this community and I'm trying to bring it to people's attention that if they would stop wasting, and if all the restaurants did their part, we could chip away at local hunger," said Mayoral Candidate, BJ Fletcher.

 If you missed this town hall meeting you can catch a debate at Albany State University October 11th.
