Two candidates have qualified to seek a seat on the Sugar Hill City Council in an upcoming special election.
Alvin Hicks and Mike Sullivan will vie for City Council Post 4, which was previously held by Nic Greene, who submitted his resignation to the city on Monday, Jan. 3.
The special election will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 15, at Sugar Hill City Hall at 5039 W. Broad St.
Hicks, who has lived in Sugar Hill for the past seven years, works in network operations for AT&T and has been with the company for 19 years.
“I am not a politician,” he said, “and I feel that I will offer a different perspective. I also want to be a voice for all of Sugar Hill.”
Hicks can be contacted at email@example.com.
Sullivan, a 24-year resident of Sugar Hill, is a software engineer manager and previously served on the Sugar Hill City Council.
“I am the only council member that I know that once he stepped down … that has kept attending the meetings and kept my finger on the pulse,” Sullivan said. “A lot of that is due to my work on the Youth Council.”
Sullivan is the community sponsor for the Sugar Hill Youth Council, which provides opportunities for youth to learn about local government operations.
Sullivan said his decision to run for Sugar Hill City Council was spur of the moment.
“I’ve got 16 years invested in the city,” he said. “I felt like there was a need, so I stepped up.”
Sullivan can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
