This text comes after Mayor Bottoms disagreed with Governor Brian Kemp’s decision to reopen Georgia businesses such as hair salons, nail salons, and bowling alleys during the current pandemic. 

“I have a good working relationship with the governor and I know that that will continue, but on this we disagree.  And his authority as governor is what it is, and it certainly supersedes my authority as mayor on paper but it doesn’t supersede my voice, and I will continue to use my voice to urge our communities, our business owners and our residents to say in”, Mayor Bottoms told Atlanta’s 11 Alive.
