Mayor: ‘Second GLBT liaison’ to be appointed for Atlanta Police Department

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed

A second LGBT liaison to the Atlanta Police Department will be named in the near future, according to a press release from the APD today.

In the release, which also announces the members of the new nine-member LGBT advisory board, Mayor Kasim Reed “pledged to have the Atlanta Police Department appoint a second GLBT liaison.” Having two LGBT liaisons on the APD was a campaign promise he made last year while running for mayor.

However, what is not said in the release is what will happen to Dani Lee Harris, the former LGBT liaison who went on medical leave in April after she said suffered gran mal seizures.
