A Few of the Finest Gentlemen that South Fulton Has to Offer
Mayor of the City of South Fulton
As the first Mayor elected to serve the new City of South Fulton, Mayor William “Bill” Edwards has worked closely with his outstanding Council to make the City of South Fulton the place “Where You Want to Be!”
Mayor Edwards, a proud Morehouse man has a long history of service to the community. Edward began his tenure in public service as a Fulton County Commissioner where he faithfully served for fourteen years.
Edwards loves the arts and he loves music particularly “Old School” songs. He enjoys, Blues, Jaz and R&B. It is not unusual to find him cutting a rug and dancing at events when he hears a song he really likes.
Edwards also enjoys traveling, but most of all he loves spending quality time with his grandchildren. It’s not uncommon to see Mayor Edwards at his grandchildren’s track meets, piano recitals, footballs games and other extra-curricular activities. He is truly a family man.

What lessons have you learned along the way? It says in The Bible, “To whom much is given, much is also required,” and it is a standard by which I have lived my life of public service. We must be committed to helping others. I have espoused these ideals as a City Councilman in South Fulton as a Business & Industrial Development Authority Member, PTA President, Little League Baseball coach (who won a World Series Championship by the way!) and other positions that have allowed me to help people.
What makes South Fulton a viable place to live and work? Over the past 48 years, South Fulton has raised me to be an active voice for change and growth. I learned from three terms as Mayor Pro Tempore of East Point and other posts that this city is rich with caring people and success stories that too often are untold.

What lessons have you learned along the way? Life is a labyrinth. There is a singular starting point and an end goal. In between are a series of twists, turns and dead ends. The more flexible and creative you are, the more likely you are to reach your goal. Stay elusive and always have one or two alternative routes to your destination. The more options you have, the less control individuals and circumstance will have on your life.
What makes South Fulton a viable place to live and work? It is easy to define South Fulton by Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, but the region also has beautiful golf courses, vibrant jazz clubs, lakes for water skiing, light rail, thriving industrial corridors, interstate highway connectivity and a rich history that is cultivated by its citizens, business owners and community leaders. Despite all of this, it is impossible to drive through the area and not have a palpable sense that more is coming.
