Mary Norwood

Atlanta leadership should recognize that the county has the tools to solve its overcrowding problem. It simply lacks the courage to use them.

Mary Norwood has dropped her legal challenge to Keisha Lance Bottoms's Dec. 5 mayoral run-off election in Atlanta.

Keisha Lance Bottoms, who was expected to lose Atlanta's contentious mayoral race, narrowly defeated a White opponent, who has called for a recount.

Keisha Bottoms declared victory in the Atlanta mayoral runoff over Mary Norwood.

Tuesday’s runoff election for mayor of Atlanta likely hinges more on how voters feel about current Mayor Kasim Reed than hopefuls Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood.

Atlanta could have its first non-Black mayor in more than 40 years if city councilwoman Mary Norwood, who is White, wins the election next month.
