Doug Thompson (incumbent)
Prior political experience: Member of Dunwoody City Council for three years; board member, Dunwoody Homeowners Association
Why are you seeking this position? To continue the great works of the city of Dunwoody.
Why should the voters choose you?
Because I will continue to focus on the issues that have the greatest impact on the quality of life/property values in Dunwoody:
Schools: I support a Dunwoody School System
Roads: Continue the pace of paving in Dunwoody
Sidewalks: Install more for a safe, family-friendly Dunwoody
Zoning: Protect Dunwoody’s residential character
Codes: Protect property values and community-feel
Police: Continue to support Dunwoody Police Department
Parks: Continue to improve all Dunwoody parks
Taxes: Keep taxes low. No tax increases without a vote
Local Business: Create an environment for businesses to thrive

Occupation: Engineer, business owner
Prior political experience: None
Why are you seeking this position? I entered the race because the current council is not listening to residents. They are grossly mismanaging projects and risking Dunwoody’s financial stability on sweetheart deals for developers. They are wasting money designing overly complicated intersection improvements–that money could be used to repave the roads faster so we could have all roads repaved in much less than the projected 20 years.
Why should the voters choose you? My business experience makes me uniquely qualified to help get Dunwoody back on track. As an engineer I am trained to look at all of the issues of a complex problem, understand their relationships, and create a realistic solution. As a business owner I know how to stick to a budget.
