Bill Donahue

I've been a part of the Richmond Hill community for nearly 20 years and was appointed a member of the Richmond Hill City Council in March 2019. It has been a privilege to serve the residents of Richmond Hill during these past few months, and I have learned so much from important leaders like Mayor Russ Carpenter and former City Council member Tara Baraniak. Through their influence and my exposure to our city's opportunities and challenges, I have developed a comprehensive knowledge of Richmond Hill as well as a thorough understanding of city and county government. The knowledge I have gained and the relationships I have fostered will be crucial to Richmond Hill's continued growth and development in in the months and years to come.

I have demonstrated proven leadership capabilities during my time in South Georgia. I served on the board of Memorial Hospital Foundation and Memorial Health University Medical Center for more than eight years. I was Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Memorial Hospital Foundation, and I served as both Treasurer and Chairman of the Finance Committee for the Memorial Health University Medical Center Board of Directors. Additionally, I was honored to serve as the Chairman of the Development Committee for the Savannah Music Festival and President of the Ford Plantation Board of Directors. I believe fervently in accountability and accessibility, and I will be responsive to the residents of Richmond Hill as a member of City Council.

It's an exciting time to live in Richmond Hill. There are dynamic growth opportunities in our business community, and there is tremendous potential to enhance the quality of life in Richmond Hill through additional recreational facilities, higher quality governance of neighborhoods and the introduction of post-secondary educational options for our high school graduates and adult populations. Most importantly, this is a time for Richmond Hill to look forward to a future that has already begun taking shape. Our community is one of the fastest growing areas of the state, and there is more opportunity on the horizon. I am looking forward to lending my years of business acumen and strategic planning experience to help Richmond Hill reach its goals!

I hope I can count on your support and your vote on November 5, 2019. Donahue for YOU!
