No to Norwood.

Margaret Kaiser it is.
If Kwanza Hall or Caesar Mitchell runs then they will likely garner that level of turn amongst the black electorate. Both men are City of Atlanta natives, and likely use their connections in the community.

Exactly. She would be better leading a suburb.

Is that what she's known for??? Tell me more...


I've met her and respected her tenure way back when. But she's really been off the scene since just after the turn of the century.

For one thing, she was instrumental in getting bar hours curtailed in the city. Apparently because she's a recovering alcoholic she thinks she has the right to manage the drinking habits of others. Shades of Carrie Nation.

The bar closing rollback was definitely not good for the city.
