Georgia Equality announces endorsements in Atlanta City Council, other city races



Georgia Equality is endorsing two openly gay incumbents as well as Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed in the Nov. 5 election, but takes a pass on backing anyone in the Atlanta City Council District 5 race that has drawn three openly gay challengers of an LGBT friendly incumbent.

The state's largest LGBT advocacy organization also gives "favorable ratings" in Atlanta Council races to the incumbents and their challengers —  to Atlanta City Council Post 2 At Large incumbent Aaron Watson and his challenger, Mary Norwood; and also to Lamar Willis, Atlanta City Council Post 3 At Large incumbent, and his challenger, Andre Dickens.
