Clark hopes for re-election to Madison City Council, District 6

MADISON – Gerald Clark has announced his campaign for re-election to Madison City Council, District 6.

“I am running for re-election to City Council because my family and I have a vested interest in the future of the City of Madison,” Clark said.

Clark views the important issues for Madison in distinct categories:

* Madison City Schools – Clark is and always has been committed to work with Madison Board of Education to find real solutions to maintain the A+ school system. Madison’s future depends on sustainable school growth, he said.

* Smart growth – Clark has advocated and committed to improvements in a smart growth plan that will focus on sustainable retail development to grow revenue in Madison.

* Infrastructure improvements – “I have advocated for paving, widening and improving utilities on a maintainable cycle while serving on council. Serving in public office means sometimes you must stand up to powerful people and big money to do what is right,” Clark said. “I have and will continue to do this, despite what it may cost me.”

“As your council member, the needs of fellow citizens have always come first. I am honored to represent each of you and listen to your concerns to help make Madison the BEST city in Alabama,” Clark said.

During his term from 2016 to 2020, Clark has seen numerous projects materialize. Hughes Road was widened to five lanes, and repaving was completed for Hughes Road walking path. The Gillespie Road sidewalk connection extends from Hughes Road to Wall Triana. Sullivan Street will be widened to five lanes.

New businesses include Ace Hardware, Publix Shopping Center and Phase 3 Fitness on Hughes Road and Crossroads IGA stores on Wall Triana and Old Madison Pike. Miller Plaza has seen improvements.

Clark noted new restaurants, including Culver’s Restaurant at Wall Triana and Shrimp Basket. In addition, Madison reached a tax settlement with Limestone County Schools.

Gerald works as a landscape architect for Goodwyn Mills and Cawood. He and wife Tina have two sons — Phillip and William.

Phillip, a 2016 graduate of Bob Jones High School, now serves as Chief Warrant Officer rotary wing pilot in the U.S. Army; he is stationed at Fort Irwin, Calif. William is an eighth-grader at Discovery Middle School. He plays tenor saxophone in Discovery Band and is taking guitar lessons.

The Clarks are members of Madison Church of Christ.

“I humbly ask for your vote on August 25, 2020,” Gerald said.
