Albany Mayor Wilie Adams will not seek re-election in 2011

Yesterday Albany Mayor Willie Adams announced he will not seek a another term as mayor of Albany.

In Monday’s press conference Adams said he was proud to serve as Albany’s mayor - but believed it was time to serve his own family. "My wife, Connie, my children and my grandchildren, have often suffered because the people of Albany have come first," he said.

Adams became the first ever African American mayor in the city's history.

No candidate has announced intentions to run for the mayoral's post. Possibilities include City Commissioner John Howard, State Rep Winfred Dukes, Commission Chair Jeff Sinyard, ex-State Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen just to name a few.
