ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Well-known pastor and community leader Frederick Williams says he is considering a run for Dougherty County Commission Chairman.

He made the announcement Tuesday saying lots of people have called him, wanting him to run for the chair. Williams says the public needs to have someone who will listen and "bridge the gaps between government and the public."

"It 's our community," said Williams. "I think that's, what I bring together. Us embracing the whole community and making sure that everybody's interests are at least heard. And not just special groups."

Williams is co-chair of 'Stop the Violence.' He says he will make a decision on running next week.
