Clarkston City Council

In 2013, Hassan ran for a seat on the Clarkston City Council. The municipal government presides over one of DeKalb County's youngest and most ethnically diverse cities.

On 5 November 2013, Hassan emerged as one of the top three candidates in the five-way race, winning 19.6 percent of total votes. He defeated fellow candidate Birendra Dhakal by 18 votes, with 215 votes for Hassan and 197 votes for Dhakal. The other two vacant City Council positions were secured by incumbent Dean Moore and Robert Hogan, who received 22.8 percent and 22.3 percent of votes, respectively.

The victory makes Hassan the first Somali to be elected to the Clarkston City Council.
