Robinson Decides Not to Run For Atlanta Council

The attorney who was running in District 2 says "I have come to the realization that the timing of my effort is not quite right."

Todd Robinson is withdrawing his candidacy for the District 2 seat on the Atlanta City Council.

Robinson, a 32-year-old attorney who lives in Midtown, announced a few weeks ago that he was running. He said in a Tuesday email to Patch:

I have informed my supporters that I am withdrawing my name from consideration in this year's Atlanta City Council election.  After further consideration and discussions with my family, I have come to the realization that the timing of my effort is not quite right. I will continue to serve my community in many other ways and will re-evaluate public service at a later date.

Some of the neighborhoods in District 2 include Inman Park, Poncey Highlands, the Old Fourth Ward and Midtown. Redrawn district lines will go into effect in 2014.

Kwanza Hall is the incumbent. Jon Jones also says he's running for the District 2 seat.

It would have been a tough battle against current councilmen Kwanza Hall. He is very popular, especially in my neighborhood, Old Fourth Ward.
