As a can­di­date for Mayor of At­lanta, Vin­cent Fort has been en­dorsed by U.S. Se­na­tor Bernie San­ders, for­mer Demo­cratic Gover­nor of Ge­or­gia Roy Barnes, At­lanta Hip-Hop artist and busi­ness owner Michael Ren­der, also known as Killer Mike, as well as 28 lo­cal la­bor unions. His key cam­paign is­sues in­clude af­ford­able hous­ing and stop­ping gen­tri­fi­ca­tion in At­lanta, as well as pro­vid­ing two free years of com­mu­nity and tech­ni­cal col­lege to grad­u­ates of At­lanta pub­lic schools.

He sup­ported Bernie San­ders for Pres­i­dent of the United States be­cause, as he said, “Af­ter months of look­ing at Bernie’s record and study­ing his po­si­tions on health­care, Wall Street, preda­tory lend­ing and the min­i­mum wage, I came to the con­clu­sion that Bernie’s po­si­tion on the is­sues that af­fect my con­stituents in Ge­or­gia the most con­form most closely to my po­si­tions.”

Fort has served on com­mit­tees deal­ing with the ju­di­ciary, ed­u­ca­tion, State in­sti­tu­tions and prop­er­ties, MARTA, ap­pro­pri­a­tions, re­dis­trict­ing and reap­por­tion­ment. He knows how At­lanta should be run.
