An Albany City Commissioner took issue with our Viewpoint Tueday, and we would like to make a clarification.
In our editorial, we encouraged city leaders to work hard to solidify a long-term deal to keep the South Georgia Wildcats in town.
Commissioner Roger Marietta accused the Wildcats of inflating their economic impact, and we said he voted against a one-year contract with the Wildcats.
That is true, though Marietta later voted for the final deal signed with the team, and even offered the resolution asking for its approval.
