The Atlanta Mayoral Election is headed to a runoff vote on December 5 between two candidates: Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood. On July 13, 2017, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and our nonprofit partners (see list below), hosted the City of Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Forum on Greenspace at the Georgia State University Center. Following the forum, we invited all candidates for mayor to complete a questionnaire addressing pressing issues in the environmental area.
See below for Lance Bottoms’ and Norwood’s answers to two questions concerning water conservation and river protection. The candidates’ answers to the full list of questions can be found here.
