Mayoral Candidates' Response
to "Buckhead Pledge"
Earlier this month, I asked the five leading candidates in Atlanta’s November 2 mayoral election to respond to a 10-point pledge to ensure Buckhead gets the attention and respect it deserves. This, I feel, is at the heart of the so-called Buckhead City movement.
Three candidates responded: Andre Dickens, Felicia Moore and Kasim Reed. Sharon Gay and Antonio Brown, did not respond.
I persist in the belief that the next mayor will have a lot to say and do in restoring the belief of Buckhead residents in the city of Atlanta. Here are the responses, in the order they were received.
