Find out what local leaders are saying about Mayor Elmore's work over the past 4 years.
Mayor Patti Garrett
City of Decatur

“I have worked with Mayor Elmore over the past 4 years both as a 'next door neighbor' Mayor and in leadership positions as part of the DeKalb Municipal Association Policy Committee. Under his leadership in Avondale Estates, new businesses have been attracted to Avondale and efforts to build on Avondale’s unique community character to enhance its sense of place are evident through city planning and community engagement processes.”

Steve Bradshaw
DeKalb County Board
of Commissioners
District 4

“As DeKalb County Commissioner representing District 4 one of my goals has been to achieve stronger ties and better lines of communication with our municipal leaders. Mayor Jonathan Elmore has been open to that concept from the very beginning. In our professional interactions Mayor Elmore has struck me as intelligent, insightful and deeply committed to improving the lives of all citizens of Avondale Estates. This community is fortunate to have a leader such as Mayor Elmore to represent their interest. Therefore, it is my honor to endorse his candidacy for re-election.”

Mayor Melanie Hammett
City of Pine Lake

 “As a fellow central Dekalb Mayor, I appreciate Jonathan Elmore’s leadership both from the inside and the outside. He has helped guide Avondale forward in the redevelopment of its city-center corridor, navigated resident relationships in a personable and direct manner, and built important relationships with elected officials beyond the city limits, creating a bigger future for Avondale. I endorse Mayor Jonathan Elmore.”
