ah, Kasim Reed for mayor?

i finally scored enough free time to go back and read CL's endorsement cover story. they picked Kasim Reed for mayor of Atlanta. this passage jumped right out at me, highlighting his work in the state Senate.
... despite being a partisan Democrat, he’s been successful working with — and sometimes around — Republicans to get things done, such as restoring tax allocation district funding and securing the low-interest state loans that allowed Atlanta to launch its sewer fix. It could be said that Reed has capably served as the city’s de facto floor leader.

wow, what a convincing argument.
