Bauman, a member of Temple Sinai, was first elected to represent the city’s southern 6th District four years ago.
“I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to serve on our City Council — the most local of local elective offices,” Bauman wrote in an announcement July 17. “I get to represent those closest to me — family, friends and neighbors — in our everyday quality of life issues. It’s never glamorous, and perhaps sometimes a bit thankless, but I never take for granted the privilege and responsibility in serving our community.”
The entire six-person council and the mayor are up for election Nov. 7 in Sandy Springs.
Bauman pledged to be responsive, open, transparent and respectful in listening to different points of view.
