Matt Seale came to Ocilla several times in 2004 to visit his friend, Chris Paulk. As a result of spending so much time in Ocilla, Matt began to see the potential in this small town and purchased the old ASCS building on the corner of Fourth and Cherry streets in downtown Ocilla.  Through purchasing the building, Matt met and fell in love with Roxie Crain, who managed The Shoppes. They married in 2007, before Matt was deployed to Iraq. In 2015, Matt successfully ran for the office of mayor and was re-elected in 2017. He is a champion of small towns and the people who give their time to serve them.
