Shaw running for re-election as District 4 Councilman

MADISON – Greg Shaw hopes to continue representing District 4 residents in his slots on Madison City Council.

“My family, business and I are proud to call Madison home, and it has been an honor to serve as your City Councilman,” Shaw said. “I am currently serving my first term, and I am proud of the accomplishments we have made but, now more than ever, we need experienced leadership to make sure Madison is prepared for the future.”

Shaw listed accomplishments that he and other council members achieved during his first term:

* Growth management — Continued to regulate growth and produced a comprehensive plan that benefits the city and Madison City Schools.

* Street maintenance — Repaved and resurfaced 15-plus miles of roads including Sullivan Street’s repaving and widening.

* Greenspaces — Improved and built greenspaces, including Bradford Creek Trailhead, pedestrian crossing at County Line/Palmer roads, along with walk path on Wall Triana and new sidewalk from County Line Road to Palmer Park.

* Recreation – Expanded Palmer Park with improvements to ball park and soccer fields. Added parking at Dublin Park.

* Retail — Recruited businesses in Town Madison like Duluth Trading Co. and new Publix on Hughes Road.

* School revenue – Refinanced bonds for $1.1-million rebate to MCS and support of new Midtown Elementary School.

“As your city councilman, I will make sure that we continue to seek funding to support and improve our infrastructure, maintain growth management and work together to move Madison forward,” Shaw said.

“I will continue to be City Council District 4’s voice, making sure we have the infrastructure, the best state-of-the-art recreational parks and greenways and schools in the state,” Shaw said. “As Madison continues to grow and prosper, I will make sure that our city lives within its means and make every tax dollar count.”

Shaw is president of Southern Scape, a Madison-based landscape business. His wife Kim and he are parents of 15-year-old Maddie and seven-year-old Reed, who attend Madison City Schools.
