Committee for Better Atlanta Says "Councilwoman Archibong is Well Qualified to Serve"

Committee for Better Atlanta

Natalyn Archibong Q&A: 

What events or experiences caused you to decide to run for this office?

As a three term incumbent, I am intimately aware of the critical issues facing our city. During my tenure on the City Council, we have experienced the challenge of funding the water/sewer consent decrees, acts of God including the 2007 tornado and the floods of Vine City and Peoplestown; the economic recession of 2008 and beyond. As a city we responsibly and aggressively tackled each problem and in the course of doing so, learned more about our strengths (we are fiscally responsible) and our weaknesses (we have become better at emergency response – from snows to floods). I want to build on the lessons learned to assist in strengthen Atlanta. We are working to become a more sustainable city, a greener city, a safer city, more transit oriented, and a place where companies and people want to live and to thrive. In Council District 5, we have recently faced severe public safety challenges. The communities within District 5 deserve to have an experienced and dedicated public servant to assist them in obtaining sustained public safety resources from the city. Similarly, these constituents deserve a public servant who knows and understands our local government, and has built over a decade of professional relationships and experiences which will further our collective goals relative to zoning, infrastructure improvements, safety, and the delivery of basic city services.
