The Atlanta City Council Post 3 At-Large race is getting nasty.
At a Friday press conference, Councilman H. Lamar Willis fired back at former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin for attacking his ethics and endorsing one of his challengers, Georgia Tech administrator Andre Dickens
“We didn’t question her ability to serve when her daughter had numerous legal issues that called for Mayor Franklin to arguably misuse her position to get a desired outcome. We didn’t question her ability to serve when her son’s business left the city and the state owing millions of dollars… and this is who my opponent has as his most trusted and senior advisor,” said Willis.
He suggested Franklin was having it both ways in going after him while calling on public servants to set a higher standard of professional conduct.
“It seems hypocritical for [Franklin] to stoop so low as to savagely attack me and then endorse my opponent given the standard [she] raised.”
