DUNWOODY, Ga. — In Dunwoody, the mayor’s office and three at-large City Council seats will be up for election Nov. 5 this year. 

While Post 6 Councilman John Heneghan will run for reelection unopposed, Post 4 Councilman Terry Nall and Post 5 Councilwoman Lynn Deutsch will be competing for mayor, leaving open races for their seats.  

Nall is a CPA who has served on the Dunwoody City Council for two terms.

“After eight years on City Council, I’m ready to step up to serve as our city’s ambassador and leader,” Nall said. “We have issues coming before us that will greatly benefit from my senior level financial and business acumen.”

Deutsch has been an at-large council member since 2011 and has served as mayor pro-tem since 2017. 

“As one of your at-large council members, I have had the honor of being a part of building a strong city,” Deutsch said. “I am now ready to serve Dunwoody in a new capacity to build on our strengths and tackle our challenges.”

For Post 4, the candidates will be Stacey Harris and Robert Miller. 

Harris is the gymnastics director at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. She serves on the Dunwoody Zoning Board of Appeals, is chair of the Dunwoody Sustainability Commission and previously served as the president of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association.

Miller is a business owner with experience in construction management and real estate development. He is a member of the Dunwoody Development Board and served on the committees that developed the first Comprehensive Master Plan and the SPLOST project list. 

For Post 5, the candidates will be Joe Seconder and Heyward Wescott.

Seconder is an Army veteran, small business owner and bicycle enthusiast. He previously served on the board of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association, the city’s Sustainability Committee and Master Transportation Plan Advisory Committee.
