MADISON – Karen Denzine has entered the race for District 6 on Madison City Council.

“Madison is for families. Together, we’ll work to maintain Madison’s excellent community, our outstanding school system and to promote economic development,” Denzine said.

Denzine will bring “your values of integrity and fiscal responsibility to our city government. I offer fresh perspectives and new alternatives to addressing the needs of our rapidly growing community,” she said.

Denzine’s decision to run originated in 2010 when she assisted in placing the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery. “A great honor. At that time, Congress debated legislation that I believed worked contrary to freedoms our fallen soldiers fought so valiantly to preserve,” she said.

“As taps played, I reaffirmed my commitment to God to work even harder to protect freedoms and rights of all Americans,” Denzine said. “I pledge to listen to you and act upon your concerns.”

The American flag flies at half-staff far too often today, she said. “Public safety requires that we give full support to our law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMT personnel. Your family’s safety is of the highest importance.”

With Madison’s relatively low property taxes, residential growth is increasing. “We need a strong economic development strategy. My educational background applies directly to promoting business growth in Madison,” Denzine said.

Denzine earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business – real estate from the University of Georgia. Her graduate studies focused on factors that industries consider when choosing a location.

“I support hiring an Economic Development Director with knowledge of emerging business trends and resources to aggressively target businesses to come and stay in Madison,” she said.

Her husband David works for the Department of Defense. The Denzines have been married 30 years ago and have “five wonderful sons that bless our lives. Our youngest, Jordan, studies at the University of Alabama.”

Karen Denzine volunteers with Good Samaritan Hospice, Downtown Rescue Mission and Madison Street Festival Committee. “My commitment to veterans grew during the 770 volunteer hours I served at Atlanta Veterans Administration Medical Center,” she said.
