“Let’s Serve Opelika Together”

Special to the
Opelika Observer

Michael D. Carter proudly announced his candidacy for the 2020 elections for Ward 3 of the Opelika City Council. 

Michael’s dedication is guiding new and experienced leaders to serve those around them. He is a leading professional facilitator for leadership and diversity and inclusion programs for an international S&P 500 organization. This experience has given him the ability to listen and effectively provide feedback to move individuals and teams in the right direction.  Michael believes that the City Council position is not about today, but about everyone working together to serve to create a better Opelika for our kids and future.  

Serving has been at the forefront of Michael’s mission. He leads the Opelika Cub Scout Pack 858 as their Cubmaster, teaches a financial literacy course, cleans his adopted mile through Keep Opelika Beautiful and serves on the Property Maintenance Board of Appeals. Michael also serves his local church, Cornerstone Church. 

Learning is a fundamental characteristic as Michael has continued to learn himself by participating in the 20 Under Forty Leadership program and the Opelika Citizens Police Academy. 

Michael has been married to his wife Natalie (Yoe) for 11 years. He has two children and one German Shepherd named Shelby. They have called Opelika home for the past seven years and look forward to continuing to serve the community.
