Coyle makes Atlanta City Council bid official

Posted By on Tue, Jun 16, 2009 at 4:44 PM

Jumping off from this morning's post, Liz Coyle has filed her paperwork with the City of Atlanta to run for Atlanta City Council's District 6 seat. She says she'll release a formal announcement later this afternoon.

According to Project Q Atlanta, Beltline attorneys informed Coyle she would not be required to resign. The longtime community activist is now the third candidate vying to represent the Midtown, Druid Hills and Morningside neighborhoods when Councilwoman Anne Fauver ends her term.

Project Q also has some good background on hot-button issues and the dynamics of the district. Since 1998, it's been represented by openly gay women. Coyle, who's heterosexual and married, will face off against Steve Brodie and Alex Wan, who are both openly gay.
