With one day left in qualifying, a non-incumbent has declared intentions to seek a Suwanee City Council post in 2013.
Linnea Miller, a 15-year resident of Suwanee, qualified Tuesday (Aug. 27) to seek Post 3, which currently is held by Kevin McOmber.
“I am running for this seat to ensure that our city continues to be a great place for business, culture and family." Miller said in a news release. “It’s critical we continue to build on the qualities that brought my family and thousands of other families here and that have made Suwanee an outstanding community.”
McOmber, a council member since 2007, still has not formally announced his election intentions for the Nov. 5 ballot. Council incumbents Dan Foster (Post 5) and Beth Hilscher (Post 4) qualified Monday. All Suwanee council posts are at-large, meaning they represent the entire city.
Miller has been involved with the Suwanee Public Arts Commission and the 20/20 Vision strategic planning effort.
"I want to ensure that the community continues to move in a positive direction," Miller said Tuesday.
Miller and her family live in the Ruby Forest subdivision.
