Term: May 2022 to May 2024

I am a dedicated and experienced council member, serving the community with passion and commitment.

Greg Abarr

Council Member Position 1  Term: May 2023 to May 2025

I began serving on City Council when we were still in receivership and heavily in debt. I wanted to apply my skills to bring the City out of dept and provide the City services its citizens deserve. I have helped accomplish the first task and the City finances are on solid ground. We have made progress but, I want to continue to work with the Mayor and my fellow Councilmembers to add more services for our citizens.
