Lots of national commentary this morning regarding Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ announcement to not seek a second term. She shared it wasn’t due to fear of not winning, candidate competition or inability to fundraise.
Recently, she’s faced a great deal of criticism for the increase in crime and violent behavior in Atlanta over the last year. If the pandemic has illuminated anything, it’s that life is too short, change happens in a heartbeat and spending energy on anything other than what you love is a waste of time.
Whatever the catalyst or personal reason, isn’t the choice truly her own?
