Due to the social distancing guidelines, we have converted our traditional AllOnGeorgia candidate video interviews into short questionnaires. Each candidate in the race was provided an identical questionnaire with the same deadline. (Questionnaires were emailed to the email address listed on the qualifying paperwork) Candidates were told their answers would be blank in the event that they did not respond. Answers were not edited in any way.
The Primary Election was moved to June 9th.
The last day to register to vote in the primary is May 11th.
Early voting begins May 18th.

Candidate Questionnaire — Mayor/City Council (Summerville)
NAME: Dana Windle Mosley
POST: City Council Seat 2
What are some of the features/qualities that make Summerville great and led you to call the city ‘home’?
Summerville is small, inviting, and welcoming. It’s people are some of the best around. My parents chose Summerville as their home over 50 years ago and as an adult I chose the same for me and my children.
What do you believe are the biggest issues facing the City of Summerville? How do you plan to address them?
We have infrastructure problems. Sewage and the current water issue would be the biggest issues at this time. The sewage system has been in need of repair/replacing for many years. To fix these issues and others will require money and staff. The current water issue will also require money to correct which I believe the ones that caused the problem should be liable for the cost. I will address these issues and any others head on!
If you received a $1 million grant to use for the city in any way you wanted, what would you do with it and why?
I would like to see something constructed for the youth of the city to enjoy. Simply because they are our future and we should invest in them and the future of the City.
How do you plan to involve residents in the decision-making process in Summerville? How can the city be more transparent?
One simple way to involve residents is to simply listen to them. Open communication. As elected officials we should be their voice for their concerns/needs. Form committees that have at least one resident. I would like to see more citizens come to the monthly meetings to make their concerns heard. For the ones that are “shut-in” I would like to see a live broadcast (will require better wi-fi inside the meeting room) with the ability to call in perhaps. The city department heads do a great job with monthly reports at each meeting. These reports should be readily available to the residents. The City should also send out a satisfaction surveys biannually.
Do you plan to stay involved in city activities if you lose this race?
Why do you feel like you’re the best candidate for the job?
First off, let me tell you what I am not, a politician. I am not a sheep and I don‘t back down easily. I am blunt and to the point with as few words as possible. I do not speak out of both sides of my mouth or change depending on who I am talking to. What I am and will bring to the council is a TEAM player (always), honesty, integrity, dependability, and genuine.
Do you have sufficient time/ energy to devote to the City Council if elected?
Yes, I have older children and I work a regularly scheduled 8-5 job.
What motivates you to want to become a member of Summerville’s City Council?
Truthfully, my father. My dad has served on the City Council for the last 12 years and I would like to see his dedication to the citizens and employees continue
