Mayoral Candidate Grades & Select Council Endorsements
Questionnaire responses, statements at forums, feedback from urbanists, and conversations with candidates have informed our grades for mayoral candidates, and some select endorsements for council seats — we’ll post grades and endorsements separately.
ThreadATL is giving an “A” grade to mayoral candidate Cathy Woolard. It’s clear that Cathy gets good urbanism, and that she has the ability to follow through on her ideas for improving the city in an equitable way that aligns with ThreadATL principles.
More grades & endorsements coming soon…
We’ve received five responses so far from the ThreadATL questionnaire and we’ll update this page as (or if) more come in. At the bottom of each of these five pages you can provide comments about the responses.
