Horn describes himself as a retired printing press operator, having moved to Roswell in about 1998. He said he has lived in the same northeast apartment complex for the past 23 years.

Horn said that he grew up in New York City, receiving a graduate equivalency degree in about 1946 from Long Island City High School.

He said he then worked for various companies over the next 20 years running their printing presses, starting as an apprentice and working his way up to become a journeyman and an “ace.”

From about 1993 to 1998, he lived in the Tampa, Florida, area, he said.

He said he will be able to work full time on city council work.

“My one job will be to be a city councilor,” he said. “I will have time for people. I will not have a second job.”

Horn is one of three candidates for the Ward 2 position, which pays $7,549 a year. The others are Pioneer Bank Vice President and Marketing Director Juliana Halvorson and incumbent Margaret Kennard, who was appointed to the seat in January 2020 and is the Leadership Roswell program director.

Ward 2 covers primarily the northeast section of the city.

Election Day is March 1, with early and absentee voting beginning Feb. 1. Elected officials will begin serving on April 1.
