- Linda Becquer-Pritchett
Welcome to the City of South Fulton's District 7 webpage. It is my honor to serve as your councilwoman since December 2022. I am grateful and very excited about the overwhelming support I received from the communities in the Old National corridor, Bethsaida Road and the Oakley Industrial Area.
District 7 is primarily a residential area with one hotel, two shopping centers and a fire station. We are experiencing a lot of growth and look forward to the development which includes the public safety complex, two more hotels, additional phases to existing single family communities, and another fire station.
A traffic light was erected in the dangerous intersection of Highway 138 and Bethsaida Road with the support of concerned citizens and our Public Works Department. We were also able to demolish the remains of a home that burned down in one of our communities that has had difficulty getting these types of things done in the past.
I look forward to creating an atmosphere that provides our residents with the quality of life that they deserve and can be proud of. You can reach me at my district office at (470) 809-7707 or by emailing me. Gintana Allen serves as the district's legislative specialist. She assists residents with any concerns or requests.
