Dianne Fries

District 2 City Councilwoman Dianne Fries on Aug. 21 announced her candidacy for a third term on City Council.

“It has been an honor to represent District 2, and I have enjoyed the challenge,” Fries said in a statement.

Fries is a Realtor, and owns an appraisal firm with her husband, Dillon.

Fries said Sandy Springs has progressed rapidly since becoming a city. Fries was among the first people elected to City Council. She cited road paving, construction of parks and sidewalks, and crime reduction as examples of continued improvement. She said she’s seeking re-election so she can continue to, “Work hard to move our great city in the right direction.”
