Dickens lays out his vision for Atlanta in his first State of The City address
Atlanta is “one city with one bright future,” Mayor Andre Dicken told the region’s top business leaders, lawmakers, and dignitaries Monday at his first State of the City address.
“The state of our city is strong,” Dickens said at the early morning business breakfast at the Georgia World Congress Center. “We are — and will continue to be — one city with one bright future. Together.”
During his 37-minute speech, Dickens credited state lawmakers with helping keep the city intact — referring to the defeat of the Buckhead city movement — and promised to beef up public safety and steer more dollars to early childhood education.
