Two candidates running for Montgomery City Council District 8

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Councilman Glenn Pruitt has served District 8 for the last 8 years.  He's running for a 3rd term. Pruitt believes he has helped get Montgomery moving in the right direction and if re-elected he can continue that progress.

"I think we have come a long way in Montgomery. I still think we have some things to do, but I think we are headed in the right direction," says Pruitt.

His opponent is Antoinette Jones. Jones, an attorney, believes she's a leader who can get the job done.

"I have what it takes to get in there and see the problems. I have vision. I am proactive not reactive," Jones told WSFA 12 News.

Voters will have the final say August 23rd.
