ARAB, AL (WAFF) -

Candidates for municipal elections across the Valley are stumping for a final day before Tuesday's runoff election.

There were a lot of close races, including the mayor's race in the Marshall County town of Arab.

It's been a tough and hard race by both candidates, who have served as council members, but both sides say they're the best person for the job.

Former Councilman Bob Joslin was out meeting and greeting on Monday on the last day before the runoff election.

Joslin feels a lot was accomplished when he concluded his two terms in 2004 and feels work needs to be done to the town's infrastructure.

Meanwhile, current Councilwoman Dianne Prestridge was also out campaigning.

She feels city hall needs a new energetic voice to represent the town.

For both, it's all about reaching out to the voters while letting them know there will be an open door even after the election.

"I know what they need, what they want, and I'm willing to listen to their concerns and just want their life to be better four years from now than it is right now," said Prestridge.

"They'll get an answer from me.  I certainly won't turn them away and we'll work as close as we can to get more people involved in the city government.  It's their town.  Let's make it work for them," said Joslin.

Polls will open Tuesday from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
