Dear Mr. Mayor:
I am a resident of Soutlnvest Atlanta, and an active participant in Southwest Atla.ntans for Progress ("SWAP"). Yesterday I met
with a group including the Community Relations Council. I was asked
by one member, "What can we do to help. 11
As I am confident that they reflect your desire to foster
activities which can validate and improve Atlanta as a place to live,
I am writing to suggest a possible way in which you could help us do
our part of this job.
A positive letter of support for the direction we are
in attempting to stabilize our cunnnunity as a thorough]¥ integrated
one would be quite encouraging, especially if permission were granted
to publish the letter through Atlanta news media.
I have no intention of attempting to direct such a letter .
should you write one, but offer the following i deas as possible s eeds
for your own t hinki ng .
1. Support of the idea of a stabilize d community a s a s tarti ng
p oint for a s t abilized (and integrated) Atlanta .
Open housing agreements or l egislation .
3. The maintainance, and even enhancement, of school quality
and of public services in this area o
4. A statement of your continued interest in and observation
of what is going on here .
The preceding are by no means exhaustive. Mr. Shelton, Mrs.
Bullard, or others of your Council may be offered as persons who have
talked with some of us on the spot and would perhpas have politically
appropriate suggestions to make.
