ALBANY, Ga. — The marketing chief for Albany State University is stepping into the Ward II city commission race and will make his official announcement May 24.
Demetrius Love, the executive director of Marketing for ASU, will challenge Rev. Ivey Hines, the incumbent commissioner in the November general election, he says.
Love is running on the promise to inform, engage and represent the residents of Ward II, which spans a portion of the northern boundary of east Albany over into the avenues just north of Downtown, according to his campaign Facebook page.
Hines is completing his first term in office.
Love joins medical transport specialist Bobby Coleman in announcing his intent to run for the Ward II seat. Coleman made his intentions public on April 26.
In other races, local businesswoman B.J. Fletcher has announced her intentions to unseat Ward III Commissioner Christopher Pike.
