Meet Anthony Cunningham, District 4 City Council Candidate, South Fulton

I am Anthony Cunningham, candidate for Councilman – District 4, South Fulton. If elected, I will strive each day to earn your vote. I have been a part of the South Fulton Community for nearly 15 years and with my wife, have raised three sons. As a resident of South Fulton, I have seen a lot of change. I have seen this community affected by the financial crisis, small businesses go through periods of stagnancy and the promise of new business development never realized. As a parent in South Fulton, I have seen the absence of resources within both the community and schools.


I love my community, but I want more. I want more for my children and yours. My vision is simple. I want our community to thrive and our youth to flourish. We do this by ensuring our neighborhoods are safe, our schools and teachers are supported and by welcoming new business investments and development opportunities.


I acknowledge that the decision to form the city of South Fulton was not shared by all residents. But now that the decision has been made, it is time to unify and inform. We can inform by opening a continuous dialogue between government and residents. It only through understanding that healing begins. We can unify by electing leaders who are as inclusive as they are accountable.


I am confident in my ability to lead my district. I have spent more than 20 years in the U.S. Armed Forces in both in an active duty and reserve capacity. I’ve also served 20+ years as a firefighter. In both roles I’ve held top leadership positions. Within the community, I have worked with local safety, athletic and special needs organizations. If elected into the role of councilman, I plan to focus on public safety, schools and community planning, as well as business development. Community has always been very important to me and I want to be a part of the solution for South Fulton moving forward. Let me use my experiences to help build a better district for our families. Together, I truly believe we can develop innovative strategies and solutions to our existing problems.
