Doraville, GA, August 16, 2017 – The Post Reports – Doraville City Councilman and Mayor Pro-Tem Robert Patrick has announced he will seek re-election to represent District 1. Elected in 2012, Patrick says he intends to continue his work focusing on a sound financial policy, transparency, good paying jobs, sustainable growth and beautified parks.
“Since assuming office we have made tremendous progress as One Doraville,” Patrick said. “The Assembly” project is moving full steam ahead which will ultimately bring over a billion dollars to the region along with hundreds of jobs. We now livestream city council meetings and publish our agendas on the city’s website to improve transparency and accessibility. Together we have watched the renaissance of “Flowers Park,” one of Doraville’s treasures for families to congregate and enjoy. This is just a fraction of the progress we are making as a city.”
As Councilman, Patrick worked to make the former GM plant, known as “The Assembly,” come into fruition, attracting Third Rail Studios as well as the Serta Simmons Bedding relocation that will bring 500 hundred new jobs to Doraville. Robert also supports the former Kmart project, a $135 million-dollar mixed-use commercial and housing redevelopment on Buford Highway.
A vigorous proponent for a more pedestrian and bike friendly Doraville as supported in the New Peachtree Road redesign, Patrick says a priority is to continue making the city’s downtown streets safer while attracting quality redevelopment.
“Over the next four year we must be vigilant about ensuring that Doraville continues to move in the right direction,” Patrick adds. “I’m committed to building on the progress we have made and the many opportunities that lie ahead. Join me in this positive effort to make Doraville more prosperous and sustainable for generations to come. Visit our brand-new campaign website voterobertpatrick.com and let’s get to work, together!”
