Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms doesn’t play around when it comes to her Cabinet, and no one is guaranteed a spot! As her 90-day mark in office approaches, she’s making some staff cuts. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, she had everyone turn in their resignations on Monday – some of which she’ll accept, and some she will decline.
“I think at some point we all knew there was going to be an evaluation, but I expected it would be on a case-by-case basis instead of this all or nothing shock,” said Howard Shook, an Atlanta City Council member to WSB-TV 2 Atlanta. Check out the report below!
The members were not completely caught of guard by this, however. Bottoms reportedly told officials that they were guranteed 90 days while she got to know them better. Now, time is up, and it’s time for some people to go!
The 48-year-old took office in January, and started things off with a bang with a transition team including Killer Mike and T.I. She was endorsed by the previous Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, whose former staff members are among the workers who are currently on the chopping black. We’ll see how this unfolds, and who gets to stay.
