Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell made a visit to Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ Tuesday September 13, 2016 to speak with the Peoplestown Neighborhood Association in regards to areas of concern they had in their community and offered suggestions on how he would fix them if he was elected as the next mayor of Atlanta. Mitchell addressed areas of concern such as code enforcement, education for the youth, entrepreneurship, homelessness, traffic, and more.
Mitchell currently presides over all Council meetings and votes in the case of a tie vote by the 15 council members, makes council committee appointments, and would exercise all powers as mayor should that office become vacant or the mayor is unable to fulfill his role. Mitchell is Of Counsel with the global law firm DLA Piper, where he practices commercial real estate and finance. A longtime community servant, Mitchell has held board directorships on behalf of civic, legal and community affairs organizations including Chairman of the Board of Directors for Hands On Atlanta, President of the Gate City Bar Association, Gubernatorial appointee to the Georgia Commission on Volunteerism and Service, and board member of Outward Bound Atlanta, Hands On Georgia, and The Future Foundation.
Mitchell is an Atlanta native who is an honor graduate of Morehouse College with dual majors in Economics and English. Mitchell earned his law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law where he served on the International Law Journal and won a national moot court championship in constitutional law. Mitchell received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Morris Brown College, where he also sits on the Board of Trustees.
