Thanks for stopping by! It’s great to meet you. I am Sophie Gibson, and I am running for Norcross City Council because I truly believe I can make a difference in the community I love and the community I call home. Gwinnett County is where I first laid Georgia roots almost 30 years ago and today, I have come back home and now call the beautiful city of Norcross my forever home. After raising three children, growing a small business since 2001, I am home and an advocate for Norcross and community change. As a small business owner and leader, I want to retain what makes our city special, while advancing in issues that mean the most to Norcross, including our public safety, maintaining our small-town charm and historic character, economic development to attract businesses and jobs and making choices that make our community better.
Sophie is a mother, business owner, and community leader. Education has always been very important to Sophie’s family and as a single mother raising three children, Sophie was able to instill this with her three children.
