Brookhaven, GA, July 19, 2017 — The Post Reports — Brookhaven City Councilman Joe Gebbia officially announced his re-election bid to continue representing District 4, Wednesday. In a release Gebbia, who is one of Brookhaven’s original Councilmembers, says he’s had the honor to be at the table since the City’s inception.
“By working together, we have achieved a great deal and created a fantastic City,” said Gebbia. “With your support, I would be honored to have the privilege to once again serve as your representative. Therefore, I am proud to announce my candidacy for re-election as your Councilman for District 4.”
Gebbia’s first election victory awarded him a seat on City Council for a two-year term. In 2013, he was re-elected to a full four-year term after running unopposed.
During his time in office, Gebbia has led the creation of Keep Brookhaven Beautiful, the annexation efforts to bring Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Executive Park into Brookhaven, and played a leadership role in development of the Peachtree Creek Greenway.
Gebbia explains if re-elected, he will continue to provide a business style approach to Brookhaven. “I’ve worked hard to successfully address the three P’s – Police, Parks and Pot Holes, and to lower property taxes while creating and approving balanced and sound budgets,” he said in the release. “We have accomplished a great deal since the inception of cityhood.”
Over the next 4 years Gebbia says he hopes to “continue to be a part of the process of making Brookhaven one of the most desirable cities in the region by working on: 1) the redevelopment of Buford Highway, 2) the building and completion of the Peachtree Creek Greenway, 3) the building of a new and permanent City Hall.”
Gebbia lives in the Pine Hills community with his wife Eilleen. They have two children who “are both very accomplished in their respective endeavors” and they recently became grandparents for the first time with the birth of their granddaughter “Pippa Louise Chappell”.
