Howard will run for 5th term

August 29, 2007

Albany - Albany's longest serving city commissioner is running for re-election. Jon Howard has served ward one for 13 years. He's now running for a 5th term in office.

Howard says his campaign will focus on economic development and crime rates. "We certainly got to do a better job at policing the community, policing the neighborhood and at the same time, citizens have to organize among themselves," said Howard.  "whether it's a neighborhood watch or just looking out for their neighbor."

Howard says he wants more police officers on the streets, and dilapidated houses torn down.

Here's a look at other candidates who've qualified for city commission seats:

Ward 1 commissioner Jon Howard is running unopposed so far. Ward 4 commissioner Bo Dorough is running for mayor challenging Willie Adams.

Roger Marietta and Lou Easter Hardy have qualified to run for that Ward 4 commission seat. In Ward 6, a re-match between Commissioner Tommie Postell and the man he beat four years ago, David Williams. Qualifying ends Friday.
