ALBANY, N.Y. -- After twenty years, a familiar face is leaving office.
And Saturday night many are taking the opportunity to send longtime Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings out in style.
The Center for Economic Growth and 21 other sponsors are honoring Jennings for his service tonight at a banquet at 90 State Events in Albany.
The Mayor announced last spring that he would not seek re-election. Jennings who first took office in 1993 is about to finish his fifth term.
Four candidates are vying to replace him in November's election.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center and the Gerald D. Jennings Scholarship Fund at Albany High School.
