Atlanta’s new Mayor Keisha Bottoms announced Thursday a transition team that will include local rapper T.I. and rapper turned political activist Killer Mike. The team will also include CEOs and educators. Bottoms states,
I am grateful to announce this 38-strong transition team. It represents a tremendous amount of diversity and depth, and really the best and the brightest in the city of Atlanta.
The group will help Bottoms carry out her platform of affordable housing, overhauling the city hall corruption scandal and improving education. She said of her transition team,
“I really want them to come with fresh ideas, and bring to me their recommendation for best practices for the city of Atlanta. To make sure we attract the best talent in the city and we are forward thinking and not just worried about the issues we are facing today but build a team that can project out for many years in the city.
