EDC to release second part of campaign soon

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission continues an effort to rebuild pride in Albany.

Phase I of their "Only One Albany" campaign will wrap up early next month.

The EDC will then survey citizens to see if the campaign has changed their view of the city.

President Justin Strickland says it all starts with people being proud of their town.

"We need buy in. We need people to be positive about Albany to share the story, to go to www.

to participate in the campaign, but to really focus on the assets and amenities that are in Albany and the people that are here," said Strickland.

Strickland says the ads will continue to run after Phase I of the campaign ends. Phase II begins early next year.
