Republican Todd Burkhalter, a Johns Creek small business owner, announces campaign for Johns Creek City Council. The city council has two open seats that were vacated by Brad Raffensperger and Kelly Stewart, who ran for State House.

JOHNS CREEK, GA (August 31, 2015) – Republican Todd Burkhalter is entering the race as a candidate for Johns Creek City Council.  Burkhalter is running on a platform of open government, direct and blunt communication with voters, and good stewardship of our city tax dollars.  He believes city finances should be managed conservatively and with respect to the residents who fund our great city. Burkhalter will commit to never voting for a tax increase for the residents of Johns Creek.

Mr. Burkhalter stated, “Far too many politicians run for office with promises of never raising taxes yet somehow our taxes continue to go up. I will speak bluntly with citizens and not engage in political word games to deceive voters. A ‘fee’ increase is a tax increase – I will oppose all tax and ‘fee’ increases on the residents of Johns Creek.” He went on to say, “I love this city and I love the people. This is where my wife and I will retire. I will always be honest with you. You may not always agree, but you will know I’m always shooting straight.”
