Bottoms was elected to Atlanta City Council in 2009 and re-elected in 2013, representing District 11, which covers a large portion of southwest Atlanta. Outgoing Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed endorsed her to succeed him as the city’s next mayor.
She was executive director of Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority, which has maintained public facilities including Philips Arena, Zoo Atlanta and the Olympic cauldron, from 2015 until she stepped down in April. In that role, Bottoms helped broker the $30 million sale of Turner Field and surrounding parking lots to Georgia State University and private development group Carter.
Honesty. Integrity. Transparency
These are the characteristics most associated with Felicia A. Moore. Newly elected as the President of the Atlanta City Council, Felicia ﬁghts on behalf of Atlanta’s citizens, policies, and ethics. Known for her fierce stance on transparency, Felicia is not afraid to speak her mind even if she draws the ire of those in power. She is a servant leader who is as comfortable in the presence of great political figures and celebrities as she is with everyday residents who are always eager to stop to greet her while out in the community. That tenacious spirit has garnered her praise and respect throughout the City of Atlanta and the State of Georgia.
