Lori Henry

First Elected: 2018

Current Term Ends: December 31, 2021

Spouse: Karl Henry

Children: Scottie (daughter)

Prior to being elected as Mayor in 2018, Lori previously served as a City Councilmember from 2001-2009 and in 2017. She has a strong history of public service and has served her community not only on City Council but also as a member of the Design Review Board, the Community Development Advisory Committee, and on several citizen advisory groups over the years. She is the owner of a small business, H and B Promotional Products, located near Roswell's Historic District. Lori uses her business experience not only to attract businesses to Roswell, but also to apply sound business practices to government.

Lori has always been an unwavering supporter of Roswell’s neighborhoods and the community’s needs. She wrote Roswell's "Big Box Ordinance" which protects Roswell from large retailers who wanted to abandon their mega stores, devastating property values in the area. The ordinance mandates the renovation and reuse of the existing big box stores. Lori also wrote an update to the Tree Ordinance that tightened development standards in order to preserve Roswell's tree canopy. She has spoken to numerous groups throughout the state including the City/County Managers Association, the Georgia Planning Association, and the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Community Planning Academy as an authority on redevelopment issues facing suburban communities.

Lori and her husband, Karl have been long time residents of Roswell, where they raised their now adult daughter, Scottie. Lori moved to Roswell as a young adult with her parents, who lived in Martin’s Landing for over 35 years. Lori is a graduate of Ohio State University and began her career as a Cobb County public school teacher.
