In the lead-up to the Nov. 7 election of Atlanta’s next mayor, “Closer Look with Rose Scott” will feature 20-minute conversations with the candidates in the race. Scott interviewed Atlanta City Councilmember Kwanza Hall on Sept. 20.


Kwanza Hall has been a member of Atlanta’s City Council for more than a decade — representing, what he calls “the heart of the city,” including Midtown, Downtown, Emmett Park, Candler Park, Old Fourth Ward and others.

Earlier this month, the candidates in Atlanta’s mayoral race discussed a major issue the next mayor will have to address: housing.

The event — held Sept. 6 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church — was sponsored by the City for All Housing Coalition and the Transformation Alliance.  The event was live-streamed, and the audio of the candidates used in this report came from that live stream.

The Atlanta Press Club Loudermilk-Young Debate Series will host debates for the offices of mayor of Atlanta and city council president on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, at Public Broadcasting Atlanta in the WABE Studios located at 740 Bismark Rd NE, Atlanta, GA, 30324.

The mayoral debate will be moderated by WABE’s Morning Edition host, Denis O’Hayer, and the journalist panel will be announced soon.
