Oxford resident Sue Dale has announced her plans to run for a seat on the city council in the upcoming November election.

The 52-year-old is a human resource manager for Oxford College and serves as a grant writer for the city. She has lived in Oxford for roughly three years and along with working with the college and the city she also runs Dale's Tails, an in-home pet sitting business.

She plans to run for the Post 4 seat that will be left vacant, since current council member Emma Lou Patterson does not plan to seek re-election.

Dale has over two decades worth of experience in healthcare operation management. She has led strategic short and long-term planning, budgeting, cost control and human relations and management at multi-site operations, according to a press release.

She has worked with Oxford College since 2007 and holds a Master of Business Administration and is a Fellow in the American College of Medical Practice Executives. She served on the Mayor's Task Force for Traffic Safety in Albany, Ga., a program where grant money helped pay for public education on traffic safety.

She is an essay examiner on a voluntary basis for the American College of Medical Practice Executives. She is also a member of the Community Accountability Board for Newton County's Balanced and Restorative Justice Program, which helps first-time juvenile offenders.

Dale attends Allen Memorial United Methodist Church where her husband, Brian, serves as pastor. She sings in the choir and plays in the bell choir. Dale also teaches a college-aged Sunday School class. She has two children: Michel, who graduated from Oxford College and now attends Emory University, and David, a senior at Newton High School. Dale has three step-children, Daniel, Jeffrey and Bethany and two granddaughters, Maia and Audrey.
