Cathy Woolard

Meet the Atlanta Mayoral Candidates!  Our series continues today with Cathy Woolard.  Cathy is a former President of the Atlanta City Council.  She was the first woman to hold that position and the first openly LGBTQ officeholder in Georgia.  We discussed affordable housing, traffic, the Beltline and more.

In hour two we were joined on the phone by Michelle Chen, a Writer at The Nation,  to discuss Seattle Minimum Wage and why it is good for workers, and can still be good for companies.
