Michael Murphy and Wife

I am Michael Murphy, and I’m running for Mayor of Mableton on March 21st, 2023.

I’ve always been an advocate for the residents of South Cobb. Having lived in Mableton for 24 years, I’ve built my life right here in Mableton. With my experience in the community, I am ready to lead our new city into the future.

As an experienced businessman, I know the importance of being budget-conscious. I’m a small business owner here in Mableton, a former executive at Ford Motor Company and Dunkin Donuts, former chairman of the Austell Community Task Force, Vice Chair of the Family Life Restoration Center, and Former Special Assistant to the Late Cobb County Commission Chair, Mike Boyce.

I have the experience, vision, and integrity Mableton needs in this pivotal time.

As mayor of Mableton, I will:

  • Advocate for small businesses
  • Develop environmentally sensible solid waste solutions
  • Employ comprehensive development plans
  • Engage our youth through involvement activities and civic education
  • Champion affordable housing
