ALBANY, Ga. — Ward VI and Mayor Pro Tem Roger Marietta will announce his plans to seek re-election to his post Tuesday morning, according to a post on the commissioner's Facebook page.
Marietta's seat is one of four up for grabs on the Albany City Commission in November.
Marietta's announcement will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the government plaza at 222 Pine Ave., he said.
In addition to Marietta, Commissioner Ward I Jon Howard, Ward VI Commissioner Tommie Postell and Albany Mayor Willie Adams each have seats up for grabs. Adams has elected to seek retirement when his term expires in December and so far, four people — restaurateur B.J. Fletcher, Ward II Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard, businessman Kirk Smith and former state representative John White — have publicly said they are seeking the mayor's office.
