Atlanta mayoral hopeful Keisha Lance Bottoms was endorsed Thursday in her runoff against Mary Norwood by numerous local elected officials as well as the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council, IBEW 613.
The endorsement comes the day after Cathy Woolard, who finished third in the Nov. 7 election, threw her support behind Norwood.
Norwood recently earned the endorsements of Peter Aman and Ceasar Mitchell, who also ran for mayor earlier this month, as well as former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin and the Buckhead Coalition, headed by another former Atlanta mayor, Sam Massell.
Bottoms has been endorsed by current Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed, and former Atlanta mayor and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young and Kwanza Hall, who also ran for mayor on Nov. 7.
In a rally outside Atlanta City Hall on Thursday, Bottoms was supported by various local officials, including Atlanta city council members Cleta Winslow, Michael Julian Bond, Joyce Sheperd, C.T. Martin and Andrea Boone; state Reps. David Dreyer and Pat Gardner; state Sens. Jason Carter and Elena Parent, and Fulton County Commissioner Marvin Arrington, Jr.
