It should be an interesting race, the lead contenders are Mary Norwood, Lisa Borders and Kasim Reed so far... This is going to be a very important election that will shape the future of Atlanta...More underneath...

Clark Howard hasn't stepped into the ring yet.

I'll be tempted to move back into the city limits just to vote for him if he does. Atlanta needs a complete overhaul in leadership. His squeaky voice is sure hard to listen to for long periods of time, but the guy doesn't play favorite race cards and has a very level head and high IQ on his shoulders. If he couldn't turn the city around, then it's too far gone for anyone to do it.

I don't live in the city limits anymore but I'm for Clark. Let's make Atlanta an example for the rest of the country, including the feds.

Any of them support the beltway loop more than the others? I REALLY hope the loop materializes!

Counting taxex/money that would come from property around it....I would say all of them.

But from a pure ecological or community thing I'd guess Clark. He's been building/promoting Habitat for Hummanity for years.

If you spend enough time at Costco, you'll see Clark Howard shopping... I don't think that HE thinks he has a chance... does that make sense?

Some how I don't see Clark's views on less govt, flat or fair tax, giving him an edge in Atlanta much less a comparison to Obama.
