Douglas Chapman is running for second ward councilor in the city of Fulton.
He calls himself a “candidate for the people” and is running on the Republican and Independence party lines.
Chapman said his main objectives in the campaign are reducing property taxes, job creation, repairing and upgrading infrastructure such as water lines, sewage lines, roads, sidewalks and curbs, revitalizing Lake Neatahwanta, updating street signs, making absentee landlords accountable for their properties and supporting the needs of the elderly and disabled.
“Fulton has a river and a lake, yet neither is being used to their full potential,” Chapman writes in a statement. “I want to revitalize Lake Neatahwanta by cleaning it out so all Fultonians can enjoy it once again.” He also said “I believe in creating neighborhood watch groups to help cut down on crime.”
Chapman is a member of the Fulton Community Revitalization Corp., the Lake Neatahwanta Revitalization Project and the city’s Republican Committee. He says he has worked on the Second War clean ups, has served as a Salvation Army Red Kettle bell ringer, worked on Lake Neatahwanta clean ups and has been a volunteer for the city of Fulton Parks and Recreation department.
