Around the first of the month I publish the number of the month, a random bit of local trivia.
The qualifying fee to run for Alpharetta City Council.
This November Alpharetta’s council will have possibly five seats up for grabs (including the mayor’s spot). Chances are good that only two incumbents will run, creating an unprecedented opportunity for new blood in city hall. It is my sincere hope that the field is large, providing Alpharetta voters with an abundance of choice. If you read my blog and have even the slightest curiosity about running for office, please do so this year! Qualifying begins at the end of August.
