District 4 Commissioner Steve Fuller is a retired educator with Carroll County Schools and a veteran of the U.S. Navy. He is the third generation to live on his family-owned farm in Clem, following his grandfather, M.T. Fuller Sr., and his father, longtime local historian and educator M.T. Fuller Jr.
A native of Carroll County, Commissioner Fuller was born at Carrollton’s Tanner Memorial Hospital and graduated from Central High School. He is married to the former Donna Anderson, also of Carrollton. The couple has two sons — Joshua and Evan — and three grandchildren, Hannah, Graham and Angela.
Fuller earned his bachelor’s in geography from West Georgia College and his master’s in education from Old Dominion University. He served more than 20 years in the Navy before retiring from service and returning to Carroll County to work as an educator. He served for 16 years as a coach and special education teacher in the Carroll County Schools before retiring to his family’s farm in Clem.
Currently, Commissioner Fuller is the owner and operator for Swamp Fox Vineyards.
When he’s not tending to his vineyard and actively supporting Carroll County’s burgeoning wine industry, Commissioner Fuller loves to ride motorcycles. He’s also an active member of the American Legion, where he’s enjoyed 40 years of service and fellowship with his fellow veterans and has been a member of the American Legion Riders for 10 years. He is an avid outdoors man, with a passion for hiking, canoeing and land preservation.
Commissioner Fuller was elected during a special election in the summer of 2019 to fill the unexpired term of Commission Chairman Michelle Morgan. He considers it an honor to have the opportunity to represent his neighbors throughout District 4.
The seat will be up for election again in 2022.
