Judy Seeks Unity To Protect Quality of Life Through Smart Growth, Strong City Services, Attacking Traffic Problems and Expanding Parks and Greenways
Roswell native Matt Judy has qualified to run for the City Council on a platform of protecting and improving the quality of life in the city where he grew up. “I grew up in Roswell, going to neighborhood schools, riding my bike on city streets and watching this city grow and prosper,” Judy said. “On the city council, I will fight to protect our quality of life through smart growth policies, strengthening city services and attacking the traffic problems that plague us.” Judy officially qualified for the November 7th Roswell City Council election for Post 6, the Post vacated by Nancy Diamond.Judy is the co-founder of Blue Giraffe Sports, a global athlete/corporate marketing and management agency. Blue Giraffe represents corporations who sponsor or get involved in sporting events, musicians, broadcasters and 25 professional golfers on the PGA, LPGA, WEB.com and other tours. Among their successful list of golfers, Blue Giraffe represents Lexi Thompson, the number one ranked American and number two ranked female golfer in the world. Judy has a BS in Management from Georgia Tech and a Juris Doctor from The Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University.

Judy grew up in Roswell, attending Roswell North Elementary School, Crabapple Middle School and Roswell high School. He lives in Roswell with his wife Allison and their 5-year-old son Coleman, who now also attends Roswell North Elementary. Judy devotes his spare time to his family and his community, including coaching his son’s sports teams and serving as a resource for fellow residents about city issues. “It is a source of great pride for me to be living in the town where I grew up,” Judy said. “My wife and I want our son to have the opportunity to raise his family in our hometown.”

I will be an advocate for what I call ‘The Roswell Way,’” Judy said. “We need to make smart decisions about how we grow, make sure city services are strong and responsive and expand our parks and greenways.” Judy said, “The decisions we make in the City Council affect the quality of life of everyone in our community for years to come. That’s why I advocate smart growth policies that provide jobs and opportunity while protecting the unique qualities of Roswell. If my son, Coleman, is going to have opportunity here we have to grow smartly and responsibly. At the same time, we need to protect and expand our world-class parks and make sure city services keep up with steady growth.” Judy said attacking traffic problems would be a high priority. “A lot of our traffic problems come from people passing through Roswell to and from work,” Judy noted. “I will engage with county, state and federal officials to make sure decisions made at those levels don’t adversely affect Roswell.”

Judy has been a leader all his life. He served as Student Body President his senior year at Roswell High School. He is well-respected by his friends and peers. “While most of us were going about our daily school lives growing up, Matt was always organizing and pulling us together for the common good,” said Toby Newkirk, a longtime friend and supporter of Judy, “For those of us who have known Matt for most of our lives, him running for Roswell City Council has not been a matter of if, but when. He’s had a successful business career, he loves this city and he’ll be a great councilman for us.”

“I know we are passionate about politics here in Roswell, and through civility, working together and engaging in constructive conversations we can look honestly at the issues facing Roswell today” Judy said. “I believe we have a tremendous opportunity to work through our challenges and I am looking forward to being a part of the conversation and doing what’s in the best interest of Roswell.”
