Albany Board of Commission incumbent, Ivey Hines, made the trip to the Government Center Monday morning to qualify for his run for office.

Commissioner Hines is seeking re-election for Ward II.

He says economic development is one of his top priorities as well as changing the mindset of those in his district.

"Now we have to prepare ourselves and get to work and inform and make sure the citizens know what we have been doing and help them understand what my goals are for the ward and for the city and encourage them to get out to the polls and vote," said Ivey Hines, Albany Ward II Commission Incumbent.

Demetrius Love is also running for the Ward II commission seat.
