A former state official made his way to Albany to be roasted by his peers.

The Albany Tech College Foundation roasted Former Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond. The event is a fundraiser for the foundation.

Roasters included Mayor Willie Adams and Albany Tech President Dr. Anthony Parker.

"I've been in politics for more than 20 years so they're not going to say anything I haven't already heard," said Michael L. Thurmond, Fmr. Ga. Dept. of Labor Commissioner.

Albany Tech held a silent auction in Conjunction with the roast. This is one of two major fundraisers each year, the other is a golf tournament.
