ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany pastor kicked off his campaign in another state house race.
    

Antonio Screen is running as a Democrat in District 153.
He's a pastor at the Alive Center.
Screen says he wants to protect schools from takeover by the state.
He opposes the Sabal Trail gas pipeline and says he'll work to bring jobs to the area.

"We're going to put the people in place that care about us, care about our needs and concerned about protecting us, concerned about providing for us and lets move forward,” said Antonio Screen. “I need everyone to get out and vote May 24th and if they want to see change for change that's seen they need to vote for Screen."

Screen is running against incumbent Darrel Ealum and Maurlene Edwards in the May 24th primary.
