One of seven new­com­ers will take over for Keisha Lance-Bot­toms. Lead­ing the fundrais­ing right now is Marci Over­street.

Their dis­trict has a slew of At­lanta neigh­bor­hoods: Adams Park, Ar­ling­ton Estates, Ash­ley Courts, Beecher Hills, Ben Hill neigh­bor­hoods, Brent­wood, Briar Glen, But­ner/Tell, Camp­bell­ton Road, Cas­cade Av­enue/Road, Cas­cade Green, Cas­cade Heights, Deer­wood, Elmco Estates, Fair­burn, Fair­burn Tell, Fair­way Acres, Fort Val­ley, Green­briar, Green­briar Vil­lage, Green For­est Acres, Her­itage Val­ley, Hunt­ing­ton, Kings For­est, Lake Estates, Lau­rens Val­ley, Mag­num Manor, Mead­ow­brook For­est, Mell­wood, Mid­west Cas­cade, Mt.

Joyce Shep­erd raised more than $100,000 al­ready to rep­re­sent Dis­trict 12 for a fifth term. She’s got four chal­lengers, but none are quite at that level yet.

Their dis­trict rep­re­sents Amal Heights, Bet­mar LaVilla, Blair Villa/Poole Creek, Browns Mill Park, Capi­tol View, Capi­tol View Manor, Fort McPher­son, Glen­rose Heights, Ham­mond Park, High Point, Joy­land, Lake­wood Heights, Oak­land City, Or­chard Knob, Perk­er­son, Po­lar Rock, Rosedale Heights, South River Gar­dens, Swal­low Cir­cle/Bay­wood, Syl­van Hills and Vene­tian Hills. AT-LARGE POSTS In ad­di­tion to the 12 dis­tricts, the At­lanta City Coun­cil has three at-large posts, right now rep­re­sented by Michael Bond, may­oral can­di­date Mary Nor­wood and An­dre Dick­ens. Both Bond and Dick­ens look to main­tain their po­si­tions, but only Dick­ens is run­ning un­op­posed. In fact, can­di­date Court­ney English has al­most $100,000 more than Bond raised in hopes of re­plac­ing him. Matt Stephens West­more­land re­ceived more than $140,000 in his race to win Nor­wood’s va­cated spot. COUN­CIL PRES­I­DENT

What would it be like if At­lanta had a gay mayor and a gay city coun­cil pres­i­dent? It’s a def­i­nite pos­si­bil­ity, as Wan has the most dol­lars in so far to lead the coun­cil, and out may­oral can­di­date Cathy Woolard isn’t broke ei­ther. Fel­low coun­cil mem­bers Clarence Martin and Feli­cia Moore are in the run­ning against Wan. All At­lantans, re­gard­less of which neigh­bor­hood they re­side in, will be able to vote for the At­lanta coun­cil pres­i­dent.
