Cobb County voters in the new city of Mableton have elected their first mayor and city council members. The Cobb County Board of Elections certified the Mableton runoff election results on Monday, April 24, 2023 which confirms who will serve as the new city’s first mayor and council. The newly elected officials include: Michael Owens, Mayor; Ron Davis, District 1; Dami Oladapo, District 2; Keisha Jeffcoat, District 3; Patricia Auch, District 4; TJ Ferguson, District 5; and Debora Herndon, District 6.

These new elected officials will be sworn into office before undergoing training and holding the city’s first council meeting. The council will have to establish a city budget, hire a city manager and attorney, and determine which services the city will provide.

The mayor and council will serve four-year terms, although half of the council will serve an initial two-year term to establish staggered election cycles. Here is a map of the new city.
