Ulysses Smallwood, a lifetime resident of various cities in the South Fulton area and current citizen of Fairburn, GA, recently announced his intention to run for a seat on the Fairburn City Council. Smallwood is happily married and has three beautiful children. “I have served in various capacities over the years in my community and being an educator has allowed me to gain an understanding of what the needs are in my community. This will be a great opportunity to help have those needs heard and facilitated on a level where authentic change can occur,” says Smallwood.
A few of Smallwood’s campaign initiatives are economic development and the youth. Smallwood desires to see Fairburn continue to develop into the city that is situated to succeed economically for all stakeholders, and helping to devlop programs and initiatives which meet the needs of youth who are in need of empowerment.
