Political Rewind: Atlanta Mayor Bottoms Not Seeking Reelection — What It Could Mean For Georgia
Friday on Political Rewind: Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has announced that she will not run for reelection. In a letter, Bottoms highlighted her proudest accomplishments in office, but gave no reason for her decision not to seek a second term. We’ll look at what her withdrawal means for the race for mayor of Georgia’s most influential city.
Plus, another significant withdrawal is in the news today: The search firm hired to find candidates for chancellor of the University System of Georgia has resigned from the job. The company gave no reasons for its decision, but controversy over reports that the position of chancellor may be offered to former Gov. Sonny Perdue has clouded the search from the start.
