The year-long poll
Starting in June of 2016 Our Future Atlanta polled over 2,000 Atlantans across all communities and demographics on their most pressing problems and the priorities for their communities. The results of this poll are driving our efforts to design policy recommendations for the future leaders of Atlanta.
Here are some highlights from our year-long polling:
- Phone surveys connected with mostly older homeowners from across the city
- On-door canvasing across Southwest Atlanta, hearing voices often left out of policy decisions
- Postcard & online surveys helped pull in younger Atlantans
What did we learn?
There are some big issues everyone in our city feels are important - education, transportation, and changing neighborhoods.
Whoever we elect in 2017 must work hard to gain public trust and gain voter confidence that these issues are being dealt with.
