About Norman Carter, Jr

Snellville has indeed become the city where “everyone is proud to be someone”.  One of my main goals is to continue expanding Snellville as an inclusive community where ALL citizens feel welcome and appreciated and proud to call Snellville home. Over the past few years, we have accomplished a lot in our quest to make Snellville a top place to live, work and play and I’m committed to accomplishing even more in the future.

Having served on the Snellville Board of Appeals, the Snellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and been on the Leadership Team of the Cornerstone Church and been a consistent volunteer at many community events, I have seen what we can do when we work together.

I have served in the U. S. Army, as a Philadelphia, PA police officer, as an Investigation Agent in the Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General, in a variety of management positions at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, as a Board Member on the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Advisory Task Force and as a Board member of the Gwinnett County Park and Recreation Advisory Board,and on the Board of directors of Raine Dance Films, so I feel comfortable and confident in a leadership role. But I have also had experience in working as a productive member of a group. To that end, I will work with my fellow Council members to keep property taxes low, improve city services, streamline the planning and zoning process, help guide the continued planning of our Towne Center, and solve individual problems for many city residents.

Serving on the city council is not and should not be political. It takes much more than deciding to run and attending two meetings a month to efficiently conduct city business. Achieving the best results for citizens requires dedication and involvement and the experience, knowledge and ability to objectively evaluate issues, and a desire to build consensus to develop the best course of action. And the experience of standing up for what is right.
