(ALBANY, GA)- Three new officials for the city of Albany took their spots on the City Commission Monday.

As Mayor Dorothy Hubbard took her leave as the leader of Albany, Bo Dorough was sworn in as the new mayor of the Good Life City.

“I will stand up for what I believe is right, even if I stand alone. I will not remain silent when it is time to speak…,” says Mayor Dorough.

Monday’s City Commission meeting hosted not only Mayor Dorough’s swearing in, but new commissioners chad warbington and Deetrius Young as well.

Mayor Dorough then spoke to the packed chamber about his immediate focus for Albany.

The newly sworn in mayor said, “No individual entity should be exempt from the aggressive enforcement of our ordinances. Which in all fairness have been enacted to preserve the integrity of our neighborhoods and the appearance of our city.”

All eyes are on Mayor Dorough to lead the city of Albany, but both of the new commissioners are just as eager to get down to business

New Ward 6 Commissioner, Demetrius Young told us after the meeting, “I just want to say to the community that I’m gonna work hard to make some changes here in Albany. I think that’s what the voters want. I think that’s what the election was about, it was about change, and making some forward moves for the city of Albany.”

“By no means was anybody winners or losers tonight. This is how a good government should be, and it should be challenging status quo and challenging the way each other thinks,” says Ward 4 Commissioner, Chad Warbington.

The next Albany City Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 28th at 6 P.M.
