One Dunwoody City Councilman says he’s not seeking reelection and another apparently faces a challenger in the November election.

City Councilman Danny Ross announced June 21 he will not be running for reelection.

Ross, who holds the at-large Post 5, said when he was elected three years ago he felt he should serve one term so he would not have to think about his political career when making decisions in the best interest of the city.

“The hallmark of the initial leadership of our newly minted city of Dunwoody is that everyone involved cared deeply,” Ross said. “I know that each decision I made did not please everyone; however, know that I made those decisions with a deep love and passion for making our city the best it can be.”

Ross said he plans to stay involved in the community after he leaves the city council.

“Going forward my involvement will be focused on historic preservation, the arts and economic development in our community,” Ross said.

Terry Nall

Meanwhile, Terry Nall confirmed that he plans to run for the Post 4 seat now held by Councilman Robert Wittenstein. Wittenstein has said he plans to run again.

Nall, who has not officially announced his candidacy, is president and U.S. head of the insurance subsidiary for Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management.

He said he is running to keep Dunwoody a fiscally conservative city.

“My desire on council is to get us back to the basics of why we decided to become a city,” Nall said.

Nall is so far the first with intentions to challenge an incumbent City Council member. Three candidates have announced their interest in becoming the city’s next mayor when Mayor Ken Wright steps down in December.
