SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Both candidates in the race for mayor of Sylvester say they're ready to make changes to the city.

 Terrell Carter is challenging three-term incumbent Bill Yearta. Carter is a lifelong resident of Sylvester and pastors several churches. Both candidates believe they can help make the city a thriving community.

"We're committed to economic development, improving our downtown, improving our infrastructure and just bringing jobs to our community," said Mayor Bill Yearta.

 "I think that it's time for us to move forward, the present administration is doing the best they can but I think it's just time for a change," said challenger Terrell Carter.

Early voting wraps up Friday. Election day is Tuesday.
