Jennifer Ide for Atlanta City Council District 6


homepage.jpg“I love Atlanta and the historic neighborhoods in the 6th District. From Peachtree to Ponce de Leon, we have thriving small businesses, walkable neighborhoods, and beautiful parks and greenspaces.  But, we also have challenges like serious traffic congestion, intrusive commercial development, and roads and sidewalks in desperate need of repair to name a few.

Atlanta is one of the five fastest growing cities in the country.  I’m running for City Council so District 6 residents have an opportunity to shape this growth and decide how it will affect our neighborhoods. Any new developments should enhance the character of our neighborhoods and the things we love about our community. I’m committed to making sure there is broad community input into development decisions so that we have smart and responsible growth that makes our neighborhoods stronger.  

We also need to make sure that growth means increased opportunities for our residents.  Hard working people like teachers and public safety officers need to be able to afford to live in the City and share in the prosperity that growth brings.   

As your City Council representative, I’ll make sure that what’s great about Atlanta doesn’t get lost as we grow.”
