Lets Talk Midtown: A Conversation With Atlanta's Mayoral Candidates

https-%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F34808963%2F200090807356%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

At 1.2 square miles, Midtown Atlanta represents less than 1% of the city’s land area but comprises more than 16% of the city’s residential population (20K residents) and 70K daytime workers, many of whom live inside the City as well. You're part of an influential voter base in one of the highest-density areas in the City of Atlanta. And mayoral candidates want to hear what's important to you.

Join us on the plaza at Colony Square (behind the MIDTOWN letters fronting Peachtree Street near 15th Street) and meet the candidates seeking to become Atlanta's next mayor.

Following a brief introduction from Midtown Alliance, candidates will be stationed at tables in a ring around the plaza. You're invited to circulate on your own and speak with the candidates.

Mayoral hopefuls were sent a copy of the Midtown community’s interests and priorities as reflected in our 2016 Midtown Community Survey here (20-minute read). Please consider the most important things you want to hear from the candidates and share with us when you RSVP to attend.

Candidates Scheduled to Appear:

Peter Aman
Keisha Lance Bottoms
John Eaves
Vincent Fort
Kwanza Hall
Ceasar Mitchell
Mary Norwood
Michael Sterling
Cathy Woolard
