Meet Your New Russell Councilman: GJ Long

GJ LongGJ Long, a familiar face to the Russell City Council from a few years ago, beat out incumbent Ward 3 Councilman Jim Cross in the April 2 election and will begin his two-year term on Tuesday.

Long, who served on the Council back in the late 1980s and early 1990s and unsuccessfully ran for Mayor in 1999, says after taking a few years off from public service, he now just wants to get back to being more directly involved with the city.
