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, [http://www.ajc.com/news/local-govtpolitics/woolard-back-norwood-runoff-for-atlanta-mayor/P7jiW6XCCY4WbF05qXvecK/|according to the ][http://www.ajc.com/news/local-govtpolitics/woolard-back-norwood-runoff-for-atlanta-mayor/P7jiW6XCCY4WbF05qXvecK/|Atlanta Journal-Constitution].
