During his term, Burnett has served as the council’s liaison to Economic Development and Information Technology.

Alpharetta businessman Brian Will has announced he will run for the Post 2 seat.

In a statement announcing his decision, Burnett left the door open for a possible bid for office in the future.

“Who knows, you may even see my name on a future ballot, because I see the value in public service, and I know there is a season for everything,” he said.
