Atlanta City Councilwoman Carla Smith said Friday she will seek re-election for her District 1 seat in November 2013.
“The information circulating on online media regarding me not seeking re-election is erroneous," Smith said in a statement. "I have every intention of running again this year to continue the successes our district has achieved over the years.”
Smith is currently implementing the recommendations from the South Moreland Livable Centers Initiative Study and beginning a Lakewood LCI Study. Smith also has been heavily involved in environmental issues.
She has served on several other committees and boards before coming to City Hall, including: chairwoman of the SAND Welcoming Committee, chairwoman of St. Paul Golden Age Center and as a board member of the SAND Credit Union, the Atlanta Project Public Safety Committee, Cluster 5 and NPU-W.
As District 1 representative, Smith has served on the Public Safety and Legal Administration, City Utilities, Transportation, and Zoning committees.
Smith also has served as chairwoman of the Committee on Council for two years.
