2017 Run Off Endorsement
2017 Election Run-Off
Today we endorse Keisha Lance Bottoms for Atlanta Mayor.
Atlanta voters have a tough choice ahead. In comparing the two candidate applications for endorsement, we found one was decidedly more robust.
Keisha Lance Bottoms is committed to continuing to move the city forward, not only on LGBTQ equality and inclusion but on issues important to advancing the quality of life for all. We have confidence her administration will be seriously dedicated to addressing the challenges in Atlanta’s future and surrounding herself with diverse and forward thinking problem solvers.
We support her expressed vision for a progressive, transparent, and honest administration that will position Atlanta and all of its citizens to thrive in the 21st century.
Georgia Stonewall Democrats is pleased to see the commitment to LGBTQ equality exhibited by so many candidates seeking offices. Our endorsements reflect our view that each of these candidates has demonstrated a history of leadership within their professions and communities.
As a reminder, these fine candidates are still working hard to earn every vote in the December 5th Run-Off
