It’s official: Mike Bodker will seek re-election as the mayor of Johns Creek.
Bodker filed the necessary paperwork and paid election fees on Monday, the first day for candidates to qualify for the November elections. Bodker has been the mayor of Johns Creek since it was incorporated as a city in 2006.
If elected, this would be Bodker’s fourth term as the mayor of the city in north Fulton County.
But Bodker’s path to re-election won’t be one that’s wide-open.
He’ll likely face at least one challenger in local businessman Alex Marchetti, who has been a resident of Johns Creek for more than two decades.
Bodker is a graduate of Lakeside High School and the University of Georgia.
More challengers could surface this week. Qualifying for Johns Creek candidates ends Aug. 23.
