Another Albany city commissioner kicks off a re-election campaign.

Commissioner Roger Marietta announced Tuesday that he plans to seek another term.

About 50 of his constituents came out to show support.

Marietta is known for organizing neighborhood watch teams and for cleaning up the Ward 4.

"I'm a big leader in servant leadership and I think this is the epitome of servant leadership. You go out and pick up trash and you go out and help people, you help people start neighborhood watches. It's not glamorous, but it's fun and interesting," said Commissioner Marietta.

Marietta is serving his first term.

Commissioners Jon Howard and Tommie Postell have also announced they're running again.
