Doraville, GA, April 28, 2015 – The Post Reports – Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman announced in a Monday release that she will be running for re-election.
“As, Mayor I’m very proud of the progress we have made over the last four years. When I was first elected Mayor, the GM Plant stood dormant and the city was operating with very little reserves – that has since changed,” said Pittman, “Today, we stand proud leading the way and creating new opportunities for the citizens of Doraville and the entire Region. We are expecting the economic impact of upwards of $3 billion dollars over the next decade from the ‘Assembly’ project. I am running for reelection to make sure that this initiative – and other projects essential to the positive growth of Doraville – come into fruition.”
In her term as Mayor, Pittman says some of Doraville’s major accomplishments include the acquisition of the former General Motors Plant, growing the City’s General Fund, leading Doraville to financial solvency, improvements in city services and implementing a citywide Capital Improvement Plan which includes more street paving over the last two years than in the previous decade.
Elected as Mayor during a Special Election in the Summer of 2011, Pittman was re-elected to a full four-year term after capturing 61% of the vote. Prior to being elected Mayor, she served on the Doraville City Council – representing District 1, where she rose to Mayor ProTem.
Mayor Pittman will lead Doraville’s State of the City Address on Tuesday, April 28th at 6:30 pm in the Doraville City Hall located at 3725 Park Avenue, Doraville, GA 30340.
