Monday was the first day of qualifying in Warner Robins.
13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet was there and shows you who plans to join the race.
The morning started out with the former chaplain for the Warner Robins Fire Department, Randy Toms joining the mayor's race.
"I think it's time for someone to come into the mayor's office that can bring people together and bring harmony and unity back to city government and back to our city as a whole," says Toms.
Then it was retired director of public works Joe Musselwhite's turn to throw his hat in the race for mayor.
"I'm not running for office to continue arguing and fussing and fighting we're going to become the city of ethics that Warner Robins has been trying to become for several years." says Musselwhite.
And current councilman for the post five seat stopped by the city clerk's office on his lunch break to sign up to run for mayor too.
"I have the experience. I have more education. I more relationships that are already established. You don't have to rebuild the relationships. I have the respect from the municipalities that surround Warner Robins," explains Daron Lee
Some even signed up to join the race for a seat on city council.
Paul Shealy plans to run for his current seat for post three. Richard Weldon is running for Lee's seat, post five, and Charlie Scott Jr. plans to run for post one. It's the same position current Mayor Chuck Shaheen plans to run for, an announcement that Scott says he didn't see coming.
"This is a free country, and people can run for whatever they want to. But I was a little surprised that he asked me over a year ago to run for that office and just before he came on TV, a day before, he said he was going to run," says Scott.
Candidates still have until Wednesday to qualify.
Warner Robins isn't the only place where candidates are lining up to run. Qualifying is underway this week for November elections in dozens of Central Georgia cities. Other cities with mayor's races this fall include Milledgeville, Dublin, Perry, Fort Valley, Centerville, Forsyth, Roberta and Gray.
