Red Clay Democrats Issue City of Atlanta Endorsements

I’m not going to pretend I understand the inner workings of either City of Atlanta politics or Democratic Party of Georgia politics at a granular level, but I tend to look instead to the folks that do.  The Red Clay Democrats are a group of generally younger, in-town folks that have shown as much if not more organization lately than the DPG during it’s time under the former chairman and the awkward period where they sought a new one.  As such, I’d say their endorsements in the City of Atlanta races are likely material.  They are:

Kasim Reed, Mayor

Aaron Watson, Post 2 At Large

Courtney English, APS Board

Jason Esteves, APS Board

Matt Westmoreland, APS Board

Y’all feel free to talk among yourselves at to the merits of these or any other City of Atlanta candidates.

    My granular analysis.

    At the Obama 08 victory celebration at the Hyatt, the Red Clay Democrats hospitality room had a quality spread. The Young Democrats hospitality room looked like a dorm room after the occupants had raided the vending machine.

    I’m a card-carrying member of the Red Clay Democrats, and I’m a little surprised that they made no endorsement of Torry Lewis against Cleta Winslow in District 4. I guess the best they could do was to withhold their endorsement from Winslow, given her recent DUI and the questionable record of reimbursements she’s drawn from the city for personal expenses over the last few years.

    I haven’t posted on PP in a very long while, but as a somewhat a strong Democrat, I’m proud to say that I’ve never been to a Red Clay event. Just a bit clique-ish, imho. So I’ll have to join with my friends on the other side of the aisle to say that I’m not going to pretend to understand that outfits inner workings.

    I am a card member to the Atlanta History Center though. Does that help?

    Why can the SoS website suddenly no longer find me? I have voted at this location for the past two elections. Nothing has changed!
