The Brookhaven resident becomes the first candidate to announce he's running for city council.
Brookhaven resident Kerry Witt announced his candidacy for city council district 4 late Friday afternoon.
Witt is currently serving a second term as president of the Pine Hills neighborhood association and his fifth year on its zoning board. He has been serving as a community council member for the past four years for DeKalb County, chairing the community council over the last two years.
“My vision for the role of the new city council is to provide strong leadership and a focused commitment to enhancing the resources and services offered by the new city of Brookhaven, while keeping unnecessary spending in check through sound fiscal responsibility,” Witt said.
Witt pledges to utilize the new city’s tax resources in a cost-effective manner, and provide a well-trained police force dedicated to serving and protecting all the citizens of Brookhaven.
“I will ensure that new development and the redevelopment of businesses is conducted in a pragmatic and thoughtful manner that enhances our quality of life, as well as assure that new growth complies with Brookhaven’s zoning ordinances and the Livable Centers Initiative overlay. Most of all, I pledge to make Brookhaven a safe, clean and affordable city for each and every resident.”
Witt has been a member of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church for the past 10 years and is currently serving his second of a three-year term on the Church’s board of trustees. He has been a licensed real estate agent in the state of Georgia for the past 25 years and has worked as a Realtor for more than two decades. Moreover, as a member of the Atlanta Board of Realtors, Witt has served on both the Grievance and Political Action committees.
Witt joins J. Max Davis as the only other announced candidate for the new city's municipal offices. Qualifying for Brookhaven's first set of elections runs from Monday through Wednesday of next week.
