Mary Norwood’s Next Act

Less than 24 hours after Buckheads current district 8 Atlanta City Councilman J.P. Matzigkeit announced he would not seek a 2nd term, Mary Norwood jumped in.

“I’m delighted to be running and I have always enjoyed being at City Hall, and I hope to go back.”, Mary told the AJC this week. This announcement signals that Mary will not be pursuing the Mayor’s office this time around, a race which she has narrowly lost twice.

Norwood has persistently pursued public office for decades. She previously served three terms on the Atlanta City Council and currently leads the Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods.
