    Entrepreneur and business owner Vicki Horton announces her candidacy for Johns Creek City Council Post 3.

    “As a young and growing city, Johns Creek is at a turning point. It needs new leadership and a cool and steady head to help the city move forward,” said Horton.

    “I have over 25 years of experience working in Economic Development, bringing communities, counties, states and private sector together to benefit the people. I vow to use my broad experience to help our city as YOUR city council member, with honor and integrity."

    Traffic congestion is at an all-time high, green spaces are disappearing, and new developments are spreading rapidly. We want our community to grow consistently with our shared vision without compromising sustainability and affordability. We need to preserve our residential character and plan for sustainable growth.
    As a City Council member, I will develop solutions for responsible growth that will continue to support the prosperity of Johns Creek. We will invest in growth that the city can absorb and sustain in the long run and I’ll oppose projects I believe will harm our city’s future.
    As an economic development consultant, I help communities find solutions that work for businesses as well as residents because I always adhere to best practices. My highest priority will be to ensure that the City Council frequently requests, receives and acts on input from the residents of Johns Creek. Community members should have an opportunity to impact decision making. I will listen to our community first and then develop the best plan of action based on a unified vision for Johns Creek.
    Originally from Ohio, Vicki earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Akron and a Masters of Public Administration degree from Cleveland State University. She is an active member of national and international economic development organizations and is a regular lecturer for the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). Vicki teaches courses on Site Selection, Economic Development, and Public/Private Collaboration at Colorado State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia, and the University of North Carolina. She is also on the faculty of the United States Chamber of Commerce. Vicki has been a resident of Johns Creek for 8 years, a resident of Georgia for 20 years.
    Vicki and her daughter enjoy the outdoors, bird watching, the arts and chess and value the benefits Johns Creek offers as a family oriented community. Vicki is an avid sports fan and she attributes her success in life to the experiences she gained from playing team sports; she played softball and soccer during her youth.

    No mention that John Bradberry is also running for Post 3?


    ...or Trey Holladay or Mark Venco. (oh, that;s because this is an article about Vicki's candidacy, not those other 3 guys)


    Vicki Horton sent her announcement to the JCP, before any of the other candidates. John Bradberry's announcement & Trey Holladay's are now on the JCP.
