Norwood looks flustered every time I see her pressed for an answer on something, and I don't see a little old lady leading one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. I'll take Bottoms.

If the suburbs got to vote Norwood would win, but she is far to NIMBY for a growing, dynamic city like Atlanta.

But did you see a 'little old lady' leading the country? HRC is five years older than Norwood.
The flagrant bigotry towards women and seniors in these election threads is astonishing. I'm frankly disappointed that the mods allow it to continue.

Yet she made it to the run off for the City of Atlanta! That should tell you something!

I don't feel good about the prospect of voting for either of them. Kasim Reed's manipulative stunt from yesterday has soiled any good feeling I had about Bottoms. Which was almost none to begin with. And Norwood is just flat out sleazy. Stereotypical politician.

Bottoms is my vote as I don't need a wolf in sheep's clothing as my mayor. I think Reed has done a good job, so I don't have an issue with Bottoms. Do I love her as my choice? No, I would have preferred Woolard but she didn't make it.

I voted for Clinton, not that it has anything whatsoever to do with the race for Mayor of Atlanta. Put your strawmen away.
