Statement on Passing of Former Councilmember C.T. Martin

ATLANTA-Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms issued the following statement.

'Councilmember C.T. Martin was a mentor and a friend. He was my seat mate for eight years on City Council and his lessons of leadership remain with me today. He was a fierce voice for the voiceless and above all else, placed the needs of our communities first. While his physical presence will be missed, his legacy of activism and fight for equity will impact our city for generations to come.'
