Mayor, Steve Edwards

Mayor Steve Edwards was first elected to the Sugar Hill City Council in 2003 and served for over ten years before being elected Mayor in November 2014. Steve and his family have been Sugar Hill residents for over eighteen years. 

He was born in Winter Park, Florida and attended Valdosta State University where he earned a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice as well as Master of Public Administration.   He and his wife, Denise, have been married for 30 years and have two adult children, Abbi and Ryan.  His wife, Denise, is a CPA. His daughter Abbi, a Buford Middle School teacher, is married to Cody Jones, a recruit for the Gwinnett County Fire Department.    

Mayor Edwards served as President of the Gwinnett Municipal Association in 2013 and in 2017 and is currently serving as the Third District President in the Northeast Region. Mayor Edwards has served as a board member on the Gwinnett County Transit Authority and the Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation Board. He has been committed to public education for many years and is an active member in both the Lanier and North Gwinnett school clusters. Connecting city hall to the seven Gwinnett County public schools located in the city is a daily priority of Mayor Edwards.  

Steve is heavily involved in the community and truly loves Sugar Hill.  He has been aptly described as the most approachable, yet most focused mayor in Georgia.  He truly represents the heart and soul of our city.  Under his leadership, the city has started to transform from a sleepy town into a destination city. He fully embraces the exciting growth and development and is extremely proud of the dynamic live, work, play community that Sugar Hill is becoming known for; while maintaining its long-held commitment to family and community.

He proudly embraces the Sugar Hill motto of “Go Big or Go Home.”
