If we're going to have an issue, then we need to iron it out. We'll do it behind closed doors. We'll come out and were going to make our city look good, and we're not going to embarrass the city."
Qualifying for Warner Robins' city council begins on Aug. 29.
Also up for election, the Post 4 seat held by Bob Wilbanks and the Post 6 seat held by John Williams.
