Councilmember (CM) Nanette Saucier was elected to office in November 2013. She has been a resident of East Point since 1999, when she purchased a home in the Oak Forrest Community.

CM Saucier believes among East Point’s greatest assets are the City’s charm and location. “East Point is a wonderful city that showcases the benefits of being a “Southside” resident. Our proximity to the Hartsfield Jackson Airport, major highways, Downtown Atlanta and access to Marta makes this a great city to live, work and conduct business. I’m proud to be a representative that is working with my colleagues to ensure East Point has an outstanding future.”

CM Saucier has always been active in the East Point community. Prior to her election in 2013, she served as the Chair of the East Point Building Authority.

CM Saucier was instrumental in the creation of the Briarwood Blossom Lane Neighborhood Association, an organization dedicated to maintaining the quality and security of the established Briarwood Community. She served as the association’s President for many years. CM Saucier is a graduate of the 2005 East Point Citizens Leadership Academy. She served as an officer of the initial Presidents’ Council, a community organization created by former East Point Mayor Patsy Jo Hilliard.

CM Saucier is currently working with local, state and federal officials along with management at Hartsfield Jackson Airport to reach an amicable resolution to the airplane noise problem currently impacting East Point residents in Wards C and D. During her first term in office, CM Saucier placed an Airplane Noise Referendum on the November 2017 ballot requesting assistance from the Federal Government to create new noise exposure regulations and authorize federal funding  to noise insulation for residences that were previously insulated for aircraft noise.  The referendum passed with 87% of the vote.   During her next term, she will continue her work to help eradicate airplane noise in the community.

A few of the accomplishments CM Saucier made during her first term include the establishment of a Veteran Sign Topper Program to acknowledge East Point Veterans.  She successfully lobbied for $500K funding for the 50 Worst Properties program to eliminate blighted properties.  She identified ways to prevent cost increases for residents and businesses. She initiated a project that ensured all city buildings are ADA complaint.

During her next term, CM Saucier’s priorities include bringing new businesses and residents to East Point,  “Smart Growth” , redevelopment of blighted areas, improving  city services and amenities,  ensuring all  projects are completed on budget, relieve utility cost, developing beautification and Anti-littering programs and continuing to improve the image of East Point.
