“My decision to run for reelection is very simple,” said Hall, a 36-year resident of the city. “I care about Fort Oglethorpe.”
Hall said he has “shown great devotion to his position of councilman” and feels the city “still needs his honest approach” to the city government.
He said his cooperation with other council members has helped Fort Oglethorpe take “large steps towards the future.”
“Many new businesses have moved into the city,” Hall said. “The streets and sewers have improved. The fire and police departments have been able to keep pace with the population’s growth. Stephenson Park has become a great recreational facility for the public, and Fort Oglethorpe has a beautiful City Hall campus.”
Hall said he also strongly encourages downtown development.
Hall said his greatest asset is his honesty.
“I am strongly against taking advantage of my position as councilman. I believe in myself. However, I am not so proud that I cannot listen to another idea. I will then research this idea and make an intelligent decision.”
Hall believes he is the best candidate for the councilman post because he is “a man of his word.”
Hall retired from Combustion Engineering with 34 years in management. He and his wife of 53 years, Maxine, have four children, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. They have lived at 116 Coffman Drive in Fort Oglethorpe for 36 years.
Candidates for three Fort Oglethorpe City Council posts are qualifying at City Hall this week. The general election will be Tuesday, Nov. 6
