COVINGTON, Ga. - James T. (Tim) Walden, Sr. officially announced his candidacy for the position of Covington Mayor Sunday in a notice sent to The Covington News.

Walden, a lifelong resident of the city, said he loves the city and the people in it. 

“We have made great strides and I look forward to continue the work,” he said in the notice. “I believe there are things we need to work on.”

Walden said he comes before the city as a member of the people. 

“I don’t come as a rich man, but I come as one of you,” he said. “It’s not about riches, political affiliations, races, etc., but simply about doing the right thing for everyone.”

Walden said he is seeking the public’s help in keeping Covington great and wants to work to do what is best for the citizens.
