Dunwoody District 1 runoff candidates for Tuesday's election
A week from now either incumbent Robbert Wittenstein or challenger Terry Nall will be elected as the third and final At-Large Member of the Dunwoody City Council which will complete all six council positions. As I did for the open Mayor's race yesterday, I would like to introduce the runoff candidates to you via the 2 minute opening statement video clip above taken from the much longer Dunwoody Homeowners Association Candidate Forum.
Regular readers of my blog are no stranger to the incumbent Mr. Robert Wittenstein as he has provided me (and therefore you) regular constituent updates which I have published. Robert has served on the budget committee since the city's inception, formulated many of the fiscal policies which raised services while still providing this start up city with a surplus. Like all members of the Council, Robert was forced to take stands making tough decisions on a wide range of topics, and as I was the person sitting next to him for most of those decisions, I can tell you that every single vote and action taken by Robert was done with the best intentions thereby putting the needs of the Citizens of Dunwody first. In order to assist you in doing your own research on Robert, this link highlights 40 blog posts where I previously tagged his name and this link highlights over 1,000 posts and Dunwoody documents from my custom search tool where Robert is involved.
I have not personally known Mr. Terry Nall for very long but it was only because we traveled in different circles and had children of different age groups. I have known (and highly respected) Terry's wife, Donna for many years as she has tirelessly served the Dunwoody community on the Peachtree Middle School Charter Council as well as served at the Dunwoody Nature Center, but I have only recently had the pleasure of getting to know Terry. Terry Nall is a long standing, respected member of the community who has impressive financial qualifications to serve on the City Council, if so elected.
Please take the time to do your own research on the candidates above before you vote. Thanks.
