CANTON — A life-long Cherokee County resident announced his plans to seek the Ward 1 seat on the Canton City Council.

Clint Weatherby, 38, will be squaring off with candidates Sandy McGrew and Bob Reilly in the Nov. 5 election for the seat, which will be vacated by Councilman Bob Rush.

Weatherby said his desire to sit on the council comes from his years in the community.

“Canton is my hometown,” he said. “It’s where I’m raising my son. Canton’s growth and prosperity are my primary concerns.”

Weatherby has worked in the insurance industry for 19 years and serves as principal at Canton-based H & H Insurance’s office in Jasper.

This experience is part of what the candidate, a Kennesaw State University graduate, believes he has to offer Canton.

“I’m an entrepreneur and fully realize what it takes to run a successful business: capital, creativity, cooperation, hard work and vision,” Weatherby said. “I want to apply these skills to running a successful city.”

Just like in business, part of running a city is planning for the future, Weatherby said.

“No city can remain static,” he said. “It must move forward.”
