Greg Cole, elected to the town council in 2014, holds a B.S. degree in Business Administration and a Master's in Healthcare Administration. Cole chairs the Parks and Recreation Committee and serves on the Finance and Ordinance and Personnel committees. Cole, who has been in Farmville 21 years, decided to run for the town council to give something back to "a town that has been really good to me and my family." Other civic activities for Cole include membership in the Farmville Rotary Club and the Farmville Lions Club; currently, he is club president.
Town finances have been a major focus for Cole since being elected to the town council. The Finance and Ordinance Committee looks at ways to save the taxpayers money with planned rather than reactionary spending. As a result, the town is more cash fluid and has reduced its debt. Cole is pleased to assist town residents who contact him with issues and problems. He noted that generally, a call to the town office is all that is needed to resolve an issue. Cole currently serves as president and CEO of The Woodland. He enjoys golf and lives in Farmville with his wife Roberta. The Coles have two children.
