Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens celebrates 100 days in office

Andre Dickens was sworn-in as the 61st Mayor of the City of Atlanta on January 3, 2022. That day, Dickens promised to draw circles, not lines; as he promised to be an inclusive mayor for a city that was rife with simmering conflicts. One hundred days later, Dickens is fulfilling his promises to address the lack of affordable housing, rising crime and addressing the lack of equity. 

During his inauguration speech, Dickens identified Atlanta’s opponents as ‘poverty, fear, inequality, violence, hopelessness, and homelessness.’ Dickens was driven to fashion Atlanta as a safe, clean, thriving city.

“When I came into office, I put the City of Atlanta into overdrive to deliver for our residents,” Dickens said. “Thanks to the incredibly hard work of our City employees and our partners throughout Atlanta, we have delivered meaningful investments that will be paying dividends for years to come. And we have made sure that Atlanta has stayed whole. We’re just getting started, and I have so much energy and excitement for what’s in store for our city.”
