Michael Owens qualifies for Mableton Mayor, joins five others to lead new city


Former Cobb County Democratic Party Chair and cybersecurity executive Michael Owens qualified this week to run for Mayor for the new city of Mableton. He and four others joined Michael Murphy as they placed their names into consideration to be elected as the top leader for Mableton in the March 21 municipal elections.

In addition to a new mayor, citizens of the new city will elect a six-member City Council for these non partisan races. Candidates for mayor and City Council had to be at least 21 years old and lived within the city’s boundaries for at least a year immediately prior to the election.

He is joined by DeBorah Johnson, another Task Force Board member vying for the seat. Sales rep Barry Tyler Krebs is a candidate in the District 3 race.
