Mayor's Statement

We, the members of the Albany City Council, recognize that many in our community are hurting and fearful as a result of the recent national election.  Thus, we would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm that we welcome and value all of our diverse community members regardless of where they are from, who they love, how they worship, how they look, their abilities, or how they vote. 

 We invite the entire Albany community to join with us in creating a safe and welcoming city; one in which we celebrate our differences and learn from each other; one in which we are proud to raise our children.

Ola Joseph Diversity

This affirmation is on every Albany City Council agenda and is shown on the screen during Council meetings. There is no room here for hate, or for those who would bring violence or hate to our community.  Those who wish to harm others either by word or deeds, you are not welcome in our town.
