Mayor Dorothy Hubbard wins another four years as Albany's top elected official.

"We thank you all so much and thank the entire community, everybody,” said Mayor Dorothy Hubbard. “This win is for everybody in Albany, Ga.”

She avoided a runoff by defeating businessman Lane Rosen.
Tracy Taylor finished a distant third.

Mayor Dorothy Hubbard celebrated her second win in downtown Albany with her family, friends and supporters.

Cheers erupted when the announcement came down that Mayor Dorothy Hubbard would be getting a second term as Albany's Mayor.
She thanked all of her supporters, even taking pictures with them.
Hubbard says she is committed to continue working with city and county leaders, economic development leaders and faith based organizations to continue moving the city forward.

"I'm going to always be committed to working together, collaboration,” said Mayor Dorothy Hubbard. “That is key for any city, any family, any group who wants to do anything in the community, in an organization. They have to learn how to work together."

Hubbard says she also plans to continue her Mayor's Call to Service, downtown re-development, seeing the East Albany pool open as well as the opening of the Broad Avenue Memorial Bridge next week.
