PORTERDALE, Ga. - Niki Wescott, of Porterdale, officially announced her candidacy for the Post 1 Porterdale City Council position last week.
Originally from Conyers, Wescott has fallen in love with the charm of Porterdale.
"She and her husband spent three years in the Porterdale mill lofts and in January 2018 purchased a mill home in Porterdale," according to her news release. “When we moved into the lofts we met a resident there by the name of Yogi. He spoke with so much love when he spoke of his life growing up in Porterdale. I knew then that we’d make our life here and buy a home here."
Currently, Terry Gray serves in the Post 1 position on the council.
"I want to bring a fresh perspective and maybe even some new ideas for the residents of Porterdale and their children," Wescott said. "The growth that we’re experiencing is such a wonderful thing. Porterdale also offers such a great outdoor space with our yellow river park and trails. We want families and their children to enjoy all of these amenities and we also want to hear their ideas for our town."
Nov. 5 marks Election Day in Porterdale, with the Mayor, Post 1 and Post 2 positions up for election.
