With early voting beginning Friday, retired firefighter Randy Toms and retired public works director Joe Musselwhite both made their bids to become the next mayor of Warner Robins.
"I'm excited about the next eleven days, and I think we have a lot of work ahead of us," Toms said.
"I feel good, I'm very pleased that it's almost over," Musselwhite said.
Musselwhite and Toms both voiced their respective messages to voters at Central Georgia Technical College in Warner Robins Friday, but one issue neither touched is the proposed crematorium in the Rose Hill neighborhood.
It's one of Warner Robins' most controversial issues right now, but neither Toms or Musselwhite say they will try to leverage it for political gain.
"My position is, right, wrong, or indifferent, I'm glad it's not in my backyard," Musselwhite said.
"If I was in the home that backs right up into the stack there, I'd be concerned too," Toms said.
With Election Day looming December 3rd, Toms and Musselwhite say they will go about their normal business, getting their messages out and asking voters for their support.
"Together we can do better, and I encourage people to get out and vote," Toms said.
"I'm blessed, and I'm very proud just to be a candidate, and have a chance to win here with the people's support," Musselwhite said.
