Marion Holloway

Working on his grandparents’ farmland in Lawrenceville, Ga., gave Marion Holloway Jr. (left) a Bulldog mentality that sticks with him in his day-to-day duties and acts of service to the City of Monroe. The current Monroe mayor is seen here with former UGA quarterback Aaron Murray after having lunch together.

MONROE — City of Monroe Mayor Marion Holloway, Jr. keeps his Summer visits to Georgia in the back of his mind and remembers these trips well, as an early teenager. He got his Bulldog mentality when he first drove a pickup truck at 14 years old on his maternal grandparents’ farm.

The son of the late Marion LeGrand Holloway, Sr., and the late Annie Belle Franklin Holloway, Marion Jr helped his maternal uncle, the late Robert Lee Franklin, keep the family farm stable in Lawrenceville, Ga. He said Robert was the only sibling of 11 children to remain on the farm.
