      Bobby Coleman has announced his run for the Albany Ward II commission seat.

      The contender says he talked with several people in the area who feel that their basic needs aren't being met.

      "Their concern mainly was a lack of accessibility to their elected official," said Bobby Coleman.

      Coleman says public safety and economic development are two of his main concerns.

      He plans to work with small business owners to boost the local economy.

      The candidate says he will qualify for the position Wednesday.

      Demetrious Love is also running against incumbent Ivey Hines for the position.
