COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One more candidate hoping to win the job as Columbus State University's new president made his case Wednesday. 

Dr. Al Romero spoke to university stakeholders, trying to persuade them that he is the best person for the job.  

CSU is looking to replace former president Tim Mescon, who retired at the end of last year.  

Dr. Romero worked in the past as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences of Southern Illinois University. 

CSU's presidential search committee has identified several potential candidates.

"The Search Committee identified five candidates that it wanted to see in detail," explained Dr. Tim Howard, Professor of Math at CSU. "And so they're spending two days roughly meeting with various constituencies of the community and the campus."

Another candidate, Dr. Randy Hanna, made his presentation on Monday. His was the first of five forums allowing the public to meet and hear from these candidates.

Three more hopefuls will make their cases in the coming days.

The dates and the candidates are as follows:

Monday, March 9, 2 PM and 3:30 PM: Dr. Chris Markwood, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, TX

Wednesday, March 11, 2 PM and 3:30 PM: Dr. Carl Stockton, Provost and Senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs, University of Houston-Clear Lake, TX

Monday, March 16, 2 PM and 3:30 PM: Dr. José-Marie Griffiths, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bryant University, Smithfield, RI
