One More Joins District 4 Commissioner Race

With Monica DeLancy, the number running for the South Cobb District 4 Commission seat comes to three.

Monica DeLancy, a 38-year-old mother of two, is officially in the running for District 4 County Commissioner after announcing her intent to run months ago. She filed with the state Campaign Finance Commission on April 18.

and Connie Taylor, who has a real estate background erves on the county’s SPLOST Oversight Committee and Board of Tax Assessors, have also filed to run for the July 31 primary for District 4 County Commissioner. Cupid has raised $18,241 from January to March 31 of this year. Taylor raised $3,265, and current South Cobb Commissioner Woody Thompson has not reported raising any funds.

DeLancy has lived and volunteered extensively in the Six Flags area since 2006. As a single mother, she understands how difficult it can be to juggle parenthood and community involvement. She cares for her children, 12-year-old Brianne and 9-year-old Ernest, and cares for other children on a part-time basis for income, while volunteering in the community.

During this time, she has been heavily involved in the PTAs at Riverside Primary and Riverside Intermediate. She also has helped with community initiatives like the annual Back to School Jam, where children are given free backpacks and parents are taught useful skills at the South Cobb Recreation Center. In 2011, DeLancy helped organize the Global Youth Services Day hosted by the Cobb Community Collaborative.

She is also involved with the Austell Community Taskforce, which has implemented several community programs for the Six Flags area. Additionally, she is a member of the Council on Opportunity Zone, which is working to better the Six Flags area in various ways with help from the United Way.

“I believe this election is going to be about the people. For there to be real change, it has to be a person that’s connected to the people and can be the voice of the people,” DeLancy said.

South Cobb residents, DeLancy said, need:

  • jobs with adequate wages,
  • education of children,
  • education of residents about home ownership,
  • and more engagement from South Cobb residents in their local community.

“This campaign is about togetherness and progress. I’ve been working for children and families and working directly with schools. I want a better future, not just for my children, but for everybody’s children who live in Cobb County,” DeLancy said.

Thompson has not yet filed to run for the open commissioner seat.
