For years, Mary Norwood has proclaimed herself an “Independent” while relying on the far-right GOP to continue to climb the political ladder. When her Campaign Treasurer is an unabashed Trump supporter, her consultants have ties to the far-right, and her closed-door campaign events are essentially GOP red carpet events, that “independence” talk is tough to buy.
Who Mary Norwood surrounds herself with sends a very clear message. Since April of this year, Norwood’s financial disclosures showed:
$38,693.88 in expenditures to Critical Point Consulting, a firm owned by a former employee of GOP Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
$49,333.40 to a consulting firm (Campaign Consulting Group, LLC.) owned, operated, and patronized by the Republican Party and its candidates.
$50,783 to GOP consultant with former ties to a Super PAC created by Newt Gingrich.
Even though Jon Ossoff ran a substantive campaign focused on the local economy and improving the quality of life for all Georgians, Mary Norwood refused to endorse the Democrat.
No matter her motivation, she stood idly by while another Trump ally and career politician was elected to represent Georgians in Congress. A career politician herself, Mary Norwood had no problem with chasing down photo ops with Karen Handel—a far-right Republican with a well-documented history of pushing an anti-woman, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-voting rights agenda.
We need better leadership than that in the Mayor’s office. There are so many good Democrats running for Mayor of Atlanta, why risk putting Mary Norwood in office?
