ALBANY (WALB) - With election day three weeks away, the three candidates who hope to be Albany's next mayor addressed a big crowd to Monday night at the municipal auditorium.
The forum got a little heated at times with the candidates taking jabs at each other's campaign promises or level of experience.
Businesswoman B-J Fletcher, former city commissioner Dorothy Hubbard, and former state representative John White fielded questions on topics ranging from education to downtown development.
After the forum, the candidates told us what they think sets them apart.
"Experience. Everywhere I've gone in this community people say you have experience, you know a lot of people in government and outside government and that's what Albany needs right now," said John White.
"I think I'm the best candidate because I have the experience. I know what is going on in our city. I'm willing to work with all the people in Albany. I'm going to bring in some additional people, some stake holders who have been as actively involved as they could've been," Hubbard said.
"Jobs. I will create jobs. I've been doing it and I will continue to do it. There's over 12,000 people in this community without a job. I can create jobs and I will. That's the difference," Fletcher said.
Outgoing Mayor Willie Adams was at the forum sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and Emerge Albany.
He told us he plans to endorse a candidate on Wednesday.
