Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Issues Statement on Passing of Fulton County Commissioner Emma Darnell

ATLANTA—Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms issued the following statement.

“Commissioner Emma Darnell was a fierce advocate and her passion and concern for our communities will be greatly missed.  She cultivated her leadership during a time when both her race and gender could have been a hinderance. But Commissioner Darnell challenged the status quo with a fierce determination to achieve equality for the people of Atlanta and Fulton County.  Derek and I are thankful for the personal encouragement she has given us for many years and on behalf of the people of Atlanta, we are forever grateful for her courageous leadership.”
