Preceding the Tuesday, April 5 Glennville City Council meeting, Marc Nobles accepted the oath of office as Ward 2 Glennville City Council member from City Attorney Hugh J. McCullough. Marc fills the seat previously held by Dennis Strickland, who died unexpectedly on January 13 earlier this year. Marc is married to Dennis’ sister, Susan, who attended the brief ceremony held at City Hall, along with other family members: Stephanie Strickland Largent, Nicolas Nobles, and Elizabeth Tatum. Nicolas is Marc
and Susan’s son, and Stephanie and Elizabeth are Susan’s children, also.
In accepting this new position on the council, Nobles said that he looked forward to serving the City of Glennville to the best of his ability.
He is already active in the Glennville community, serving on the Glennville Downtown Development Authority and owning two businesses in Glennville, Buck’s Barber Shop and Nobles Outdoor Advertising. He owns several commercial buildings in the Glennville business
area. Nobles is also chairman of the Tattnall County Republican Party.
He has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia with a double major in real estate and marketing.
Nobles was unopposed in the election that was set for May 24, so with the Ward 2 seat vacant, he was able to assume his council duties beginning with the April 5 meeting.
In his initial qualifying announcement, Nobles commented, “Although no one will ever fill Dennis’ shoes, I pledge to serve the citizens of Ward 2 and the greater City of Glennville with the same spirit of civic dedication as Dennis.”
Nobles’ priorities are to promote efficiency in local government, to keep city property taxes low, to keep regulations and red tape at a minimum, to protect local property values, to promote healthy growth, and to support the city police and fire departments
to ensure that the city remains a safe and happy community.
