January 3, 2022
On Monday, January 3, 2022, Andre Dickens took the oath of office to become Atlanta's 61st Mayor. The Atlanta REALTORS® Political Action Committee is proud to have been one of the first local committees to support Mayor Dickens.
During the inaugural ceremony, Dickens acknowledged the fulfillment of his life-long dream to become Mayor and his respect for the Mayors who have gone before him. He also discussed his priorities during his administration and said his first 100 days will focus on an effort to hire 250 more police officers this year and train them in community policing and de-escalation tactics. He also wants to deploy mental health specialists to give officers more time to focus on crime.
Additionally, Dickens promised to create a Department of Labor to streamline the city's ability to prepare residents for the workforce and he urged technology companies to hire local talent and to help him close the digital divide.
