What is the position you are running for? *
Mayor of Atlanta
Why are you running for office? *
Our city needs leadership to address crime, end corruption, establish social and economic mobility
In what ways do you believe your experience will assist you in your position, if elected? *
My servant leadership style and pragmatic approach to problem solving and consensus building delivers results. I have served homeless families by assisting them to discover pathways of sustainable living and I have led very large teams to achieve world class results in corporate America.
Why are you the best candidate for this position? *
Without unity, trust and partnership, solutions are only temporary. We cannot afford polarizing leadership if we are to advance social and economic justice for everyone in our city.
What do you think your constituents need the most? *
Leadership that listens and addresses issues in a transparent and efficient manner.
What would you do differently than the predecessor in the position/office you’re running for? *
One area that I would address differently is the relationship with Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent. The mayor should be a strategic partner for the school district that represents the future community leaders and workforce of our city. Partnerships to increase mentorship, student outcomes and family engagement will be a priority for my administration.
What are the three (legislative) issues you will address, if elected? *
Affordable Housing, Police recruitment and training, Transportation-Belt Line & MARTA
If elected, what is your plan of action the first 100 days in office? *
Assembling my staff, Hopefully reopening City Hall (based on Covid conditions). Ramping up police officer recruitment and addressing officer morale. Forming community based liaisons to represent communities in affordable housing development planning. Connecting with the APS school board and superintendent to establish foundational needs assessment for an ongoing partnership.
