The municipal election in Senoia this November will see only three people on the ballot for the two at-large City Council seats. Harry Ramos qualified last week along with incumbent councilmen Larry Owens and Jeff Fisher.

The only real newcomer, Ramos said he is running because he has always been interested in local government and would like to be a part of it, adding that providing a different point of view might be a healthy thing for the city. Ramos said he has been involved with homeowners associations and chambers of commerce in the past.

Working in pre-sale tech support with IBM, Ramos said he supports the city’s penchant for maintaining its historic roots. Having the city progress while keeping to its tradition is important, he said. Ramos also said he is supporter and advocate of a citywide golf cart path system that will give citizens flexibility in transportation.

Ramos spoke of the need to be accountable to citizens and to listen to their input on issues as being a main focus, as will carrying out what is expected as a council member. One of the ways to be aware of citizens’ concerns is to get HOAs and traditional neighborhood together to solicit those concerns, Ramos said.
