Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan is running for re-election.
The mayor is planning an event Saturday afternoon at the Hibernian Hall on Ontario St. to make the formal announcement. She's telling the Times Union that the city is moving in the right direction under her leadership.
It won't be easy, though. Sheehan will face at least a three-way primary against Common Council President Carolyn McLaughlin and Councilman Frank Commisso, Jr.
Green Party candidate Dan Platt is also in the race.
