The City Council of Social Circle is seeking letters of interest from citizens to fill the vacant District 3 Council seat for the balance of the current term which ends January 2022. Under the City Charter, the vacancy must be filled by Council appointment because the remainder of the term is less than 12 months. The District 3 Council seat will be on the ballot during the regular election of November 2, 2021 for the term beginning January 2022.
Qualifications to serve as the District 3 City Council Representative are
- You must reside within District 3 and must have been a CITY resident for 12 months.
- You may not have been convicted of primary or election law violations, malfeasance in office, or felony involving moral turpitude or domestic violence – unless ten years have elapsed since completion of sentence and civil rights have been restored.
- You may not have defaulted on any federal, state, county, municipal or school taxes.
District 3 covers most of the area between West Hightower Road to North Cherokee Road, including the neighborhoods of Windsong, Corby Creek, North Forest Road, Town Park, Carver Drive, and the Meadows. See www.SocialCircleGA.gov or call Clerk Susan Roper at 770-464-6901 for more information.
Interested Citizens should send a letter of interest, including name, address, relevant experience, and why you would like to be considered for appointment as the District 3 Councilmember to Susan Roper, City Clerk, at City Hall. Letters of interest may be mailed, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropped off at City Hall in the drop box or drive through. Letters of interest are requested by 5:00 pm on February 1, 2021.
The Charter does not restrict City Council’s authority to appoint to those that submit letters of interest.
