The commander-in-chief this morning gave Reed his personal seal of approval based on the financial stewardship, public safety improvements, and education efforts that happened during the mayor's first term. The AJC's Jim Galloway points out the press release, which reads:
"[Reed] has restored the city's fiscal condition, reduced crime and implemented after-school programming that serves hundreds of children per week in some of the city's most challenged neighborhoods. He has earned a second term. I look forward to partnering with him on issues of importance not only to the city of Atlanta, but also our great country."
It's hardly a surprising endorsement, considering that the two politicians have become political allies in recent years. Reed has hosted presidential fundraisers, defended the president on Sunday morning talk shows, and made frequent trips to the nation's capital.
