ALBANY – Five people are up for the top job in Albany.

On Monday, they are all expected at a public forum at the Albany Public Library on Washington Avenue.

Candidates include Democrats Corey Ellis and Kathy Sheehan, along with Republican candidate Jessie Calhoun, Conservative candidate Joseph Sullivan, and Libertarian candidate Alex Portelli.

The forum is the second in a series of mayoral public forums, hosted by Occupy Albany.

It starts at 6 p.m.

The winner of the election in November will replace Mayor Jerry Jennings, who is stepping down after 20 years.
