About the Mayor

I came to Athens 25 years ago as Pastor of New Life Baptist Church, tried to retire in the late 90’s, which didn't last long as I continued to stay active in the ministry and I began developing my tax business. I was appointed treasure of the city in 2003, elected mayor in 2013. It has been and is a privilege to serve the community of Athens.
