Meet the Candidate

Prepared To Lead

Dear Neighbor:

Hello, my name is Melanie Maria Elder and I'm running to represent you on the Austell City Council, At-Large Post 1.

I am running because I care about the future of our city. Local governments have a direct impact on the quality of life of its citizens. Having the ability to try new ideas, build relationships with fellow citizens and acting upon those ideas together, will ensure Austell continues to thrive. 

I was influenced at an early age to get involved in my community. I have served as a mentor, Youth Director and I was recently added to the Board of Variance with the City of Austell. 

I have earned a B.A. in political science and a paralegal certificate. As an individual committed to education, I will pursue a Master’s in Business Administration with a concentration in Project Management after the election.

In closing, I am thrilled about the growth Austell has experienced. Serving as your representative, will provide me the opportunity to represent YOUR VOICE.  Together, working in close partnership, we can continue to make Austell a great place to raise a family. 

Thank you for your time, and I pray I can count on your vote and support on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. 


Melanie Maria Elder
