Issure Yang to Run for City Council: Post 1. Issure Yang is a long-time Johns Creek Resident has lived in and around Johns Creek/Alpharetta since 1989. She remembers when Kimball Bridge was just a dirt road and driving to Alpharetta was a “planned” trip. Her parents were one of the first to purchase a lot in Country Club of the South when it was still in the beginning phases. She loves that she has been able to raise her children here in a beautiful, safe and well sought after area.
Her interest in running for City Council stems from her strong sense of community and watching Johns Creek become over-commercialized, with increased traffic woes and increased development.
Issure Yang is a mother of two. Her daughter, Sydney, is a Freshman at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide) and her son, Zack, is a sophomore at Johns Creek High School. Her civic involvement was instrumental in her children’s extra-curricular activities for several years and on the board of the JCHS Cheer, as well as volunteering for her son’s JCHS lacrosse team. Issure is currently VP of Staff support for the Johns Creek High School PTSA.
She is a graduate of Georgia Tech and currently works as an independent consultant and has expertise in Customer Experience, Workflow, Product Management, Marketing, and Cyber Security. She looks forward to serving the Residents with the thoroughness, thoughtful diligence and dedication she is known for.
Issure Yang’s Goals:
Three T’s that plague our city today
– Apply strategies to address the current traffic issues we today by taking advantage of the technology available to us — real-time light synchronization, real-time reports on traffic patterns, common-sense solutions instead of forcing expensive solutions that may or may not help traffic. Many intersections are dysfunctional and need to be fixed for congestion relief and safety issues.
No Tax Increases
– Balanced budgets and look for additional areas to save money. The city must put contracts out to bid, to not only get the best value but the best quality, that Residents expect and deserve. We should not allow any element of our government to overspend, overtax, or over waste.
– Serving the Residents of Johns Creek is my priority. It is my desire to serve the Residents and not myself. Many times those who stay too long lose the vision of the Residents and often serve themselves.
Other Critical Issues
Moratorium on Development
– We must get the traffic issues resolved before adding any more development within the City. The ongoing approval of variance requests has led to Overdevelopment. An increase in density affecting the quality of life for its current residents.
– As Elected Officials, we must set a high standard of behavior and keep arm’s length distance from any potential conflicts of interest. Our City Charter needs to be improved to reflect and require stronger ethics from Elected Officials and City Staff.
– Our City Government needs better communication and increased community involvement. Area Residents must be informed of activities such as construction, public works projects that could affect them. Optimally, prior to commencement, not after.
As your City Councilwoman, I pledge to be open and receptive. To your communication, ideas, and issues and be your voice on Council.
