The City of Snellville is proud to welcome the newest member of its city council, Gretchen Schulz.
A longtime volunteer and organizer of the Snellville Farmers' Market and Community Garden @Snellville, Schulz joins the council after Post 4 Councilman Bobby Howard said he would not seek re-election earlier this year.
Schulz was joined by her family as she was sworn in by Melvin Everson, a former councilman himself.
Cristy Lenski and Barbara Bender, who serves currently as mayor pro tem, were also sworn in to additional terms after they were not challenged for their seats. Everson presided over the oath of office for Lenski, while Snellville Municipal Judge Mark Layng swore in Bender.
