Time to celebrate Atlanta's mayor, the Hon. Shirley Franklin
With former Atlanta mayor Bill Campbell's sentencing this week after being convicted on three counts of tax evasion and sentenced to 30 months in prison, Atlanta finally gets to go back to work on the business at hand. Well, that's what Atlanta's current mayor, Shirley Franklin, has been doing anyway.
This woman with a passionate heart, thoughtful mind, and steely determination to do the right thing is THE future of the Democratic party in Georgia. It's hard not to like her, even if you're a Republican. She's fair and honest. And she stands by her convictions on tough issues. And to top it off, she's one of TIME magazine's 5 best big city mayors.
So while we put the past to rest, let's celebrate today and the future. Shirley Franklin is someone who makes us all very proud!
