LUNA 2013: Not Just Another Dumb Motherfucker.

  • LUNA 2013: "Not Just Another Dumb Motherfucker."

In case you missed it, chef Paul Luna intends to run for mayor in November's election. An open letter from Luna to Mayor Reed and Atlanta City Council members arrived in my inbox yesterday:

Dear Mayor Reed,

I write to you openly, first, as a citizen of Atlanta and also as a concerned human being. As you know, I have an interest in being the next Mayor of the City of Atlanta. As a person, I have nothing but love for you - you are a man, like me. What I dislike is your political mind and agenda.

As Mayor of Atlanta, I will be committed to building up transparency in the city. Sound familiar? Maybe because it was part of your platform nearly four years ago. To me, transparency means that resources and information are available for every one individual to access without prejudice, judgment or difficulty. The resources and information are clear - -without self-interest, greed, ambition or power. For my part, my self interest as Mayor of Atlanta is to cook, lead and serve the people of Atlanta.

As Mayor of Atlanta, I want to be known around the world for recognizing and highlighting the love that makes Atlanta.
