I hope the new mayor straighten out the permitting process for residential homes and make contractor accountability for work done on older homes.

She's an At-Large Councilperson, she serves the entire City and doesn't have a specific District.

Sounds like me you know a different racial demographic and/or a bunch of whitewashed individuals...
You clearly have an agenda, and always have.

This is about nothing more than skin color for you.

No, it won't. If you look back to last election Reed solidly won the near eastside neighborhoods which are majority white. This election will come down to who is painted as the progressive candidate versus the conservative one. Norwood has already been cast as the conservative candidate and she hasn't done much to dispel that idea, regardless if it is true or not. It doesn't play well in Buckhead.

lol, i'm laughing out load. Buckhead is the one ITP area where a "conservative" candidate is going to play very well.

When I think of Mary Norwood, I don't think "progressive."

The only candidates I think of as progressive are Cathy Woolard and Al Bartell. Maybe there are others I haven't heard about.
