Cathy Woolard endorses Norwood in Atlanta mayoral runoff
The ex-council president endorses a former rival for mayor
At long last, former mayoral candidate Cathy Woolard has made an endorsement in the Atlanta mayoral race: councilwoman Mary Norwood.
The move comes just six days before the runoff election, when Atlanta voters will choose between Norwood and her city council colleague Keisha Lance Bottoms.
Woolard, who is also the city's former council president, said she made her decision based on concerns about corruption at City Hall, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She said, "The lack of transparency at City Hall has crushed the spirit of our city, and I feel like we need a clean break with this administration and a new start here with fresh players."
