Joe Longoria, Candidate for the Milton City Council District 5, invites all Milton citizens to meet with him on Wednesday, September 30th from 6 PM to 9 PM, at the El Azteca Mexican Restaurant on Highway 9 at Bethany Bend Road.
This will be an opportunity to get to know Joe, to discuss your issues and concerns and to learn about Joe’s vision for our city. Joe believes that public officials should be held accountable for their actions through the campaign and voting process and that the current level of services to the community can be improved. Joe’s background and experience has provided him with the leadership skills, the ability to gain consensus on tough and contentious issues, the expertise to make complex decisions and a commitment to honesty and fair play.
Joe has had a successful career in the software industry where he has been a business owner for most of his 30 year career. He has been involved in a number of mergers and acquisitions where his financial expertise was an important element of their success. He is Treasurer of the Crooked Creek Homeowners Association and played a key role in the financing of the neighborhood’s multimillion dollar recreation and amenities project. Joe has long been active in civic affairs and has received awards for his work with the Boy Scouts of America in North Fulton and Atlanta. He has coached various YMCA sports and is a founding member of the St. Brigid Catholic Church.
Joe believes that the biggest issues facing Milton in the future are 1) revenue management as demands for and costs of services increase and 2) how to preserve our unique rural way of life.
Milton will continue to face numerous challenges as a new city, and Joe will bring valuable new skills as well as enthusiasm to the City Council. Joe is anxious to meet with Milton citizens on Wednesday evening.
