Dunwoody City Councilman Doug Thompson announced July 16 he plans to run for re-election.

Thompson issued a short statement saying he planned to run again in the Nov. 5 election for the Post 3 seat.

“It is with great excitement and the support of my family, friends, neighbors and colleagues that I announce that I am seeking re-election for the local District 3 City Council post with the city of Dunwoody,” he said. “The great things going on in our city have inspired me to seek another term as I continue to advocate for paving, parks and police.

“Planning is underway for fundraising and a campaign kick-off.

“I look forward to your support and the opportunity to continue serving the citizens of Dunwoody.”

Thompson is one of three council members facing re-election this year. Councilman  Denis Shortal also has announced his intention to run for re-election. Councilwoman Adrian Bonser also is reaching the end of her  current term, but has not publicly announced her election plans.
