COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus Mayor Theresa Tomlinson will face some competition when voters head to the polls this fall.

Colin Martin, formerly the vice president of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, announced his candidacy for mayor of Columbus.

Martin posted this on his official Facebook page named "Colin Martin for Mayor":

What a fantastic announcement ceremony! I just want to take a second to thank God, my family, friends, supporters, and the elected officials of this great city who came out and supported the beginning of an incredible journey. 

Thank you City Councilors Bruce Huff, Gary Allen, Glenn Davis, and Skip Henderson. 

Thank you Tax Commissioner Lula Huff.

Thank you Marshal Greg Countryman.

Thank you Clerk of Municipal Court Vivian Creighton Bishop.

Thank you Sheriff John Darr.

Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to attend. Without you, this would not be possible. Have a blessed day!
