Albany - An Albany professor throws his hat in the ring for a city commission race. Roger Marietta is a political science professor at Darton College. He's running for the Ward 4 seat now held by Commission Bo Dorough who announced his cadidacy for Mayor.

Marietta is no stranger to politics. He was elected mayor of Fayetteville in 1988 and ran for U. S. Congress and Dougherty County Commission. He's also been active in Albany City Government, speaking out against Boxer's night club in the Lake Park area which recently shut down. 

He said, "I've been intimately involved in this issue that affected the Lake Park neighborhood with Boxers. I think I could make a difference sitting on the city commission where I would have a vote."

Marietta says he'll also focus on property taxes and public safety matters. Commissioner Dorough will face current Mayor Willie Adams, who announced Thursday.
