Meet Robert Patrick
Robert Patrick was elected to Doraville’s City Council representing District 1 in a special election held in 2012. Councilman Patrick campaigned on a platform of sound fiscal policy, transparency, good paying jobs, sustainable growth and beautified parks. Since taking office, Robert has worked diligently to deliver on his campaign goals.
As Councilman, Robert Patrick worked to make the former GM plant, now known as “The Assembly,” come into fruition, potentially bringing well over a billion dollars to the region. The Assembly development attracted Third Rail Studios which is currently open and filming, as well as the recently announced Serta Simmons Bedding relocation, a Fortune 400 company, that will bring 500 hundred new jobs to Doraville. Robert also supports the former Kmart project, a $135 million-dollar mixed-use commercial and housing redevelopment on Buford Highway.
Councilman Patrick is a vigorous proponent for a more pedestrian and bike friendly Doraville as supported in the New Peachtree Road redesign. This plan is designed around making our downtown streets safer while attracting quality redevelopment. Groundbreaking on this project will begin in early 2018.
