“I’m 90 percent sure I’m going to run,” Reichel said during a visit to the May 23 City Council meeting, adding she likely will make an announcement next week. “I’d love to be involved and have a hand in getting things done,” she said.

Two former candidates for the seat, Tochie Blad and Dennis “Denny” Williams, previously said they are considering runs as well.

Reichel said she owns 21 rental houses. She serves as treasurer of the Mount Vernon Woods homeowners association and was a 2015 Fulton County Schools volunteer of the year at North Springs High.

Sterling is leaving the council seat to run for Fulton County chairman.
