Atlanta Civic Circle Democracy

Atlanta Mayor Lance Bottoms on democracy and why she’s not running again

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Thursday the steady vitriol on social media didn’t influence her decision not to run for re-election.

“It really did not. I, thankfully, have a lot of discipline as it relates to social media,” the mayor said during a conversation she had with former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice. “Even when I am scrolling around just to see what people in the city are talking about, I can turn it off when it gets to be too toxic.”

    Unfortunately mayor Bottoms isn’t leaving the city better. She has pandered to special interest, and now Atlanta will experience an exodus by business that don’t see it as a safe place, because of riots and crime. It happens when the law is ignored in favor of mob rule.Report

    Great job. I have just moved her in Georgia. But I have heard nothing but positive things about the job you are during. One thing I know is people criticize what someone else is during cannot to do the job at all!,Report

      Linda that is because what you are hearing is words with truths filtered out.

      Keisha is on record knowingly repeatedly violating my civil rights via having systemically blocked my protected speech from public forums/channels. she further went so far as to destroy evidence of this when i filed a open record request for her/the citys social media block lists. they waited almost a year to comply & only produced the requested records right after they had scrubbed them clean of any evidence of their serial abuses.

      she is hateful & peddles violent politics which see people exploited for profit as ‘normal’. she is a coward who refuses to face the reality of her actions because she is shielded from criticism by immense/gross wealth.Report
