Yes it is true. I have crossed over to the dark side.

Former City Clerk Sue Rainwater wishes me luck

Today I registered as a candidate for the Alpharetta City Council post 4 seat. After complaining about politics and politicians for most of my adult life I finally decided that it was time to put up or shut up.

And as any of my regular readers know, shutting up was never really an option.

Looking ahead to the next two months of campaigning I expect it will be exciting, daunting, frustrating and sometimes even rewarding. I don’t know how much of the campaign I will be able to share on these pages but fear not… the GA Jim blog will survive.

  1. good luck Jim, I enjoy reading your blog and wich you success. I’m a west-sider though, so I guess I won’t be able to vote for you.

    • Chris- The good news is that Alpharetta elections are city wide… so you can vote for me. And don’t forget to bring your family, your neighbors and anyone else you can find!

  2. Jim Gilvin is a common sense, mainstream advocate for Alpharetta residents and businesses. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to elect a true leader to City Council who is willing to serve our citizens.

    Jim is a tireless advocate for high quality jobs, good growth, and homeowner interests that help our schools flourish. Jim is a strong defender of our neighborhoods and our quality of life. He would be an excellent addition to Alpharetta City Council.
