The Last Word - Forget the raise, what should we give City Hall politicians?

The Last Word

At the end of October, a blue-ribbon commission said that Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and City Council members deserved a hefty raise. Whether you agree with those recommendations or not, we want to know - good or bad - what else the folks running our fair city deserve.

All politics is local. Give credit where credit is due, and be honest. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
