A special speaker addressed the Dothan Kiwanis Club this afternoon.
Democratic candidate for governor and state congressman Artur Davis greeted Kiwanis members at the Holiday Inn south Tuesday.
Monday, Representative Davis unveiled a plan he says would save the state almost $700 million a year.
He’s calling for more aggressive prosecution of Medicaid fraud and more tax auditors to collect unpaid taxes.
He also wants to retrofit state buildings to save energy costs.
“It's not preordained that every state has to struggle during a recession. we've got to diversify our job base we got to bring in different kinds of jobs and people want to know what are you going to do as governor to give us a better chance of prospering in the second decade of this century we're in.,” said Rep. Davis.
Davis is running against state Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks in the democratic primary in June.
