Statement on Passing of General Colin L. Powell
ATLANTA-Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms issued the following statement.
"I am deeply saddened by the passing of General Colin Powell. General Powell was a consummate statesman whose life work transcends any political entity. He was a warrior until the end, most recently imploring all Americans to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Alma, their children and their families. The world has lost a hero."
