Albany  --   A candidate for Albany city commission is taking issue with the way the city is run.

Roger Marietta is running for the Ward 4 seat, and he says recent WG&L rate hikes, fee increases at the civic center, and property reappraisals are hurting Albany.      

And he says it'll be a mistake for commissioners to increase business taxes. "When things are declining, you need to cut taxes, you need to cut rates, you need to cut fees and that will encourage businesses to encourage jobs."     

Marietta says he realizes the property valuations weren't the responsibility of the city, but he hopes the city, county and school board will all roll back millage rates to offset the increases.     

Marietta is running for the commission seat currently held by Bo Dorough who is running for Mayor.
