Stacey L. Collier

Hello! My name is Stacey L. Collier, and I am running for City Council (District 4) in the newly established City of South Fulton. I have lived in South Fulton County for my entire life. I grew up in College Park and graduated from Westlake High School in 1998. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration at Clayton State University in 2004. I currently live in Fairburn, GA with my husband, Dennis. I have over 12 years’ experience working in higher education in the area of Enrollment Services, primarily the Financial Aid department. Those years span over three major universities, Georgia Tech, Clayton State University, and currently Emory University.

This is a very exciting time for our community, and it is crucial that we lay the foundation for a vibrant and viable city that embraces diversity and provides social, cultural, and economic opportunities for all of its residents.  Laying the foundation for our new city is an arduous undertaking that requires a systematic and comprehensive approach that addresses all service delivery areas to ensure the successful development of our city.

If elected to the City Council, I am prepared to help lay that foundation. Sound finances and financial practices are essential. My given profession has also afforded me the opportunity to work with fund management and budget development and reconciliation. In my tenure at Georgia Tech, I was the Program Coordinator for the Federal Work Study fund. My responsibilities included monthly reconciliation of the fund and annual completion of the federal application for total accountability of the fund. In three years, under my supervision, the program grew from $250,000 yearly to nearly a million dollar program. My knowledge of financial management, funds administration, and accounting principles will prove useful in managing the budget for our new city.

Effective communication and listening is paramount to ensure our city operates efficiently and all citizens have a voice. Every day I am in contact with prospective and current students, as well as their parents, educating them on the processes, policies and procedures necessary to receive financial aid, informing them of the impact certain decisions or choices made will have on their respective academic careers and, most importantly, ensuring that there is a clear understanding amongst all parties involved. If elected, I will provide effective communication and effective listening to the citizens in our community.

Other important attributes required in my line of work and in city administration include project management, interpersonal skills, and resource utilization. In addition, I have professional resources available to me in the legal/judicial and transportation sectors. I can draw on these contacts for assistance in creating the laws of our new government and establishing our first municipal judicial system or to consult on proposed legislation concerning the repair and/or expansion of our roads and the impact on our infrastructure with the potential addition of new businesses and commercial properties.

My goals are to bridge the gap of clear communication amongst local government and the community, to provide the residents with a council member who listens and successfully relays their concerns, present transparency in all areas of the budget, and fully utilize all resources available so that residents gain the most out of their government. Upon election, I vow to do my utmost to make the City of South Fulton a community its residents are proud to call home.

Anthony Cunningham

My name is Anthony Cunningham and I ask for your vote for Councilman of District 4. I  have been a part of the South Fulton Community for nearly 15 years and with my wife, have raised three sons. My vision is simple. I want our community to thrive and our children to flourish. We do this by ensuring our neighborhoods are safe, our schools and teachers are supported and by welcoming new business investment and development opportunities. So, why me?

As a resident of South Fulton, I have seen a lot of change. I have seen this community affected by the financial crisis, small businesses go through periods of stagnancy and the promise of new business development never realized. As a coach of two local basketball teams and vice president of the Langston Hughes PTA, I have seen the effects of reduced parental involvement compounded with a lack of local community programs.

Community has always been very important to me. As the eldest son of a preacher and evangelist, I was raised to put God first, lead by example and be of good service to others. Those core values shaped the man I am today and paved a path to a successful career in service. I have served as Captain and firefighter at Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Company for more than 13 years. In addition, I've served more than 20 years in the United States Armed Forces and currently hold the title of Assistant Chief of Operations. In the military, we have a saying: "Either you're part of the problem or part of the solution." I want to be a part of the solution for South Fulton.

I ask for your vote for Councilman of District 4. As your Councilman, you can trust that I will lead with integrity, service and excellence. I learned how to be a great leader by knowing how to follow. I learned to be a good service man through years of service to others. Let me use my experiences to help build a better district for our families. Together, I truly believe we can develop innovative strategies and solutions to our existing problems.

Thank you.

Anthony Cunningham

Naeema Gilyard

I am the seasoned candidate for our district with decades of community engagement work in many neighborhoods and cities including Atlanta and Unincorporated South Fulton.

I am a 37 year resident of metro Atlanta, with the last 13 years spent living in and working to make South Fulton a friendly place to live.  My service on the Fulton County Community Zoning and on the South Fulton Parkway Alliance boards have helped me to understand that smart zoning and quality development can help provide needed services and fuel quality economic development.  It can also help to provide needed services and fuel positive growth in our community.  I will ensure that our District’s zoning and economic development strategies focus on the goals of our community and adhere to environmental compliance and green space protection.

In terms of services, we have an opportunity to improve what we have and create what we need.  I will focus on policies related to performance of each department in the City, metrics to measure their  performance based on best practices and the role each department will play in the overall strategic plan of the city.

My professional career includes over 20 years at Morehouse School of Medicine as a Medical School Administrator  whose success was measured by involvement with and improvement of the community we served, while controlling costs and growing revenue, i.e., grants and clinical income.  As your Councilwoman, I will have the same goal.

For 10 years, at Emory Hospital and University, I was an Internal Operations Auditor where I performed operational audits focused on efficiency and effectiveness related to strategic plans and cost control.  As your Councilwoman, I will hold city management accountable for achievement of the City’s strategic plan in conjunction with the Mayor and other Council members.  With my operational audit experience and prior experience performing financial audits for a CPA firm for various industries including a city and profit and non-profit businesses, I bring to the table variety and a long history of business expertise.

For 11 years, I volunteered on my HOA, (a community of over 800 homeowners),  in unincorporated South Fulton including 4 years of service on the board.  We had a smooth transition from the developer to homeowners while developing and improving our amenities and financial health of our community.  I used my accounting/finance and managerial expertise to help ensure that our community operated smoothly.  As your Councilwoman, I will work to ensure that the City of South Fulton is managed effectively to provide needed services and amenities while maintaining and improving its financial health.  My HOA experience will be helpful to those in District 4 and in other Districts in addition to single homes that existed before HOAs were developed.

I have a BS degree from Temple University with majors in Accounting and Business Education and a minor in Economics.  I also have a MS degree from Central Michigan University with a major n Health Services Administration.

With my combination of community engagement, accounting/finance and business experience, I will help to transition the county to our city strategically and beyond to ensure that we have the resources we need to support our community’s vision.

My engagement has always been hands on working with communities to reach their potential.  As your Councilwoman for our city, I will work shoulder to shoulder with you, City leaders and City staff to achieve optimal results

​As your Councilwoman, I am committed to making South Fulton be the best it can be.  We will work together to make it a reality.​

Rochelle Lindsey

Hello Neighbors! My name is Rochelle Lindsey and I would like to earn your support to represent District 4 on the City of South Fulton Council. My family moved to South Fulton so that my daughter, Allie, could grow up in a family-friendly community. I am a working mom and was inspired to run because I want to ensure that the needs and concerns of working families are always considered. I want our community to be a place where our schools are high-performing, all families feel safe, children can thriveand seniors can live peacefully into retirement.

Cityhood provides South Fulton with a new opportunity to solidify its place as a beacon of growth and an incubator for economic development. As your City Councilwoman, I will advocate for the creation of a comprehensive and sustainable growth plan that includes deliverable of services, such as sanitation, police etc., budgets, human capital, and safety plans. Over the next few years, we will work together to develop a solid foundation, so that our City can continue to prosper.

As your City Council representative, I will operate with transparency, accountability and responsibility. My years of experience working in the public sector will be a tremendous asset. I have managed projects, such as a the implementation of a national mentoring program, overseen budgets, engaged in contract negotiations, developed human capital and worked in collaboration with nonprofits, corporations, small businesses, and government agencies. I have worked on federal, state, and local contracts and understand what it takes to make government more productive, efficient, and accessible.  I wholeheartedly believe in convening a diverse community coalition to make sure that every voice is considered and constituents’ ideas are incorporated in the decision process.

If you elect me to represent District 4, my focus will be on making sure that small businesses are supported, our city promotes quality healthcare centers, advocating for smart economic development, and equipping our neighborhoods with tools to maximize safety.  Additionally, I will tap into my network of nonprofit relationships to bring effective and impactful quality youth programs to the City. As a City Council member, I want to establish “Citizen Education” forums to teach our residents about local government operations and how to partner with officials on local initiatives. From these forums, I am hoping to establish community work groups to help the Council and Mayor make informed decisions and utilize resources available to the City to establish S.M.A.R.T solutions.

With my experience, passion for the community, and leadership abilities, I will represent District 4 with honor. My engagement in the community has always been hands-on and fully invested. I ask for your vote and your support in building a booming City of South Fulton.

Judith Sunshine Martin

Known for her boundless enthusiasm and glass-half-full optimism, Judith Sunshine Martin knows what it takes to build a dream from scratch, and fully understands that for anything to thrive, a strong foundation is the key.

Like many who have moved to this area, Judith Sunshine was drawn to Atlanta’s entrepreneurial aura when she made the decision eight years ago to relocate her family from Philadelphia.  Making a cross-country trek as a single mother with two kids would have seemed daunting for some, but it was vintage Judith Sunshine. To those who knew her it was par the course for a community engager who relishes making connections, forging new business paths, and continually reinventing herself.

Judith Sunshine Martin moved to the Atlanta area on faith and the knowledge that her fearlessly determined personality and hard work ethic would make the challenge of moving to a new city with school-age children manageable.

Born on the small  progressive island of Jamaica that has given the world leaders, such as Marcus Garvey,  Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice (both first generation Americans), Judith Sunshine along with her family  migrated to the United States at the dawn of her teenage years.  The family settled in Philadelphia where she graduated from Sayre Junior High School, West Philadelphia Catholic Girls Preparatory High School, and St. Joseph’s University, with a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Professional Communications. This was where her passion for community service emerged. One of her first volunteer efforts was the creation of “Adopt a Grandparent” where she convinced her teenage friends to visit seniors at a local senior living community.  Later, this became Judi Sunshine’s lifelong passion, advocating for the Elderly.

Deeply rooted in church & community, Judith Sunshine believes that her strong faith has developed in her an insatiable desire to serve her community and has proven this throughout her life.

From her choice of current career as a Director at a senior living community to her numerous volunteer efforts, ranging from rallying the community to vote, to developing successful community forums that were used as vehicles to get community and government leaders to meet their constituencies, and answer their questions; and where businesses executives and owners could talk directly to their consumers.  Some of those organizations have included Philadelphia Fire Dept., Social Security Administrations, Homeland Security and City Government.

 

Her experience also includes diplomatic relations, having worked with high profile international leaders. Judith Sunshine forged relationships with their US counterparts that developed working relationships on charitable endeavors.  She was also an active community outreach advisor to the Jamaican Honorary Consulate in Philadelphia and was one of the initial advisors on the Philadelphia Mayor's Commission on African and Caribbean Immigrant Affairs.

Ms. Martin has never been ok with the idea of just being a board member and making decisions. She has proven over and over again that she is an active leader; she gets into the fight and gets her hands dirty regardless if it is something as small as writing an editorial on unfair treatment or as large as boycotting businesses that takes from the community without giving back.

Judith Sunshine Martin may be new to running for political office; however, she is not new to building from scratch. From scratch, she built a successful life as a single mother of two college students, built three businesses and collaborated on other business start-ups.  She knows how to successfully build, lead, and connect to get the job done. It is that type of tenacity and zest she will take to City Council to work for every resident of South Fulton. Today she is to stepping out in front and letting her experience and knowledge guide her to work for you.

Residents of District 4 deserve to have someone with her knowledge, attitude and vigor to sit at the table to represent them when certain decisions are being made for them.  They can rest assure, knowing that she has their best interest first and foremost. She will work diligently to make City of South Fulton successful, and be the place where everyone wants to live, play, work, brag about being a resident and where businesses want to come. She wants to lead the efforts to make City of South Fulton one of the best places to live in Georgia.

Everyone has a vision but not everyone has the know how to implement said vision, Judith Sunshine Martin is a visionary leader, who is fearless, and ready to implement, to collaborate, and to make our vision of a great city a reality.

It is said without a strong foundation you’ll have trouble creating anything of value. As a City Council member, Ms. Martin believes that STARTING OFF STRONG is key to our success. Starting strong must include the FUNDAMENTAL FOUR: (see website for detail information www.Jsunshinemartin.com)

  1. FOUNDATION: Create a citywide culture that puts its citizens first.
  2. SENIORS & CHILDREN: Create engaging activities/programs that foster their well-being.
  3. EDUCATION: Develop programs that foster continued education via P.E.P.
  4. BRANDING: Attracts businesses & visitors to enhance revenue growth.

Let’s be strong from the start, ELECT Judith Sunshine Martin-strong ethics, strength of will and knowledge to achieve long term goals.
