Roberson seeks Council Place 3 position
Mike Roberson, a veteran business manager, is seeking election to City Council, Place 3, in Hartselle, subject to the Aug. 28 municipal election.
A political newcomer, he is in a four-candidate race with George Hearring, Karen Owens and Glenn McGann.
“I decided to become a candidate after talking with several individuals and business leaders,” Roberson said. “The existing administration has done a good job but the incoming administration will have the responsibility to ensure that the momentum is carried forward for four more years. I’d like to be a part of making that happen.”
Roberson is a 31-year employee of Patrick Industries in Decatur where he serves as general manager for the distribution division as well as sales manager for the Southeastern United States.
“With the team approach we use in management, I believe I can be an asset in working with the other council members, mayor, department heads and employees as well as the citizens of Hartselle,” Roberson said. “By working together as a team we can accomplish what’s best for the community.”
Roberson and his wife Janice have been married for 43 years, are lifelong residents of Morgan County and have lived in Hartselle for the past 10 years. They have a daughter and son-in-law and five grandchildren.
