Let's Talk Midtown: Meet the District 2 and District 6 Atlanta City Council Candidates

Category: Midtown Alliance Event

Past Dates & Times

  • Wednesday, Oct 25, 2017 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


The Wimbish House - 1150 Peachtree St


At 1.2 square miles, Midtown Atlanta represents less than 1% of the city’s land area but comprises more than 16% of the city’s residential population (20K residents) and 70K daytime workers, many of whom live inside the City as well. You're part of an influential voter base in one of the highest-density areas in the City of Atlanta. And City Council candidates want to hear what's important to you.

In November, Atlantans will go to the polls and vote for the Atlanta City Council candidates. This special edition of Let's Talk Midtown will give voters the opportunity to meet the candidates who are running to fill Midtown Atlanta's District 2 and District 6 Council seats and make a difference on a hyper local level. 

In addition to connecting with local candidates, our Let's Talk Midtown is a great opportunity to network and meet Midtown neighbors and workers.
