Both Atlanta mayoral candidates pledge to give APS disputed deeds

Atlanta mayoral candidates Mary Norwood and Keisha Lance Bottoms both pledged to turn over long-disputed school property deeds on their first day as mayor. 

The two candidates, who will face each other in a Dec. 5 runoff election, said they would give Atlanta Public Schools deeds the city holds to properties that the district has sought for years and waged a court battle to obtain. 

The mayoral candidates will meet to discuss various education-related issues at a 2 p.m. Friday event at The Gathering Spot.
