MILTON, GA (September 10, 2009) – Retired international business executive, Atlanta native, and farmer Bernard W. Wolff announces his campaign as the at-large challenger in District 1 for the November 3, 2009 election. Mr. Wolff’s family has owned land in northwest Fulton since the1940’s. He and his family moved to Milton in 2003 to upgrade their farm and settle in.
Mr. Wolff speaks with conviction about his reasons for entering the race. “I have decided to seek the seat in District 1 on the Milton City Council after experiencing first hand the undelivered promises of my opponent for a protected Milton and actively engaging in the planning process regarding our city’s future. Commentary, actions and votes reveal that Milton is at a crossroads between the Milton we were promised versus a community in which quality of life is given a back seat to development. Density is not the only solution to budget balancing.”
“I grew up in this area. It is special to me.” Continues Wolff, “We decided to have our 114 acre farm become part of Milton based upon the promise of a ‘rural’ atmosphere, limited government, self-reliant citizens, and lower taxes. This vision is in jeopardy. I believe that the special people who live in Milton have the imagination, desire, and ability to bring this vision to fruition, but I believe a change of leadership in District 1 is necessary to make that vision a reality.”
Mr. Wolff’s professional career includes 25 years of international experience developing export businesses for American products. He has spent several years starting new business operations in the U.S. and abroad. He served four years as an officer in the U.S. Navy, including a combat tour in Vietnam as Skipper of a Swift boat. Mr. Wolff attended public schools in Atlanta and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the South, as well as a Master of Business Administration from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance and Commerce.
Married to Betty Ann Wolff for 30 years, the Wolff’s have two grown children. Their son is employed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, while their daughter works in Manhattan at Cartier’s Fifth Avenue store.
