Kasim Reed has been Mayor of the City of Atlanta since January 2010. Since then, some of his biggest accomplishments include creating the largest police force in Atlanta history, re-opening all of the city’s recreation centers and improving fire-rescue response times. He played an integral role in the implementation of the Atlanta Streetcar project that had its inaugural ride at the end of 2014. Mayor Reed has also been an advocate for deepening the Port of Savannah; Georgia’s largest economic development project to date.
Mayor Reed is regularly featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. In 2013, The Root, a publication of the Washington Post Company, ranked Reed among the top ten most influential African-Americans in the nation.
