Mayoral candidate and front runner, Mary Norwood made an appearance today at Parkside Elementary School.  Parkside serves as the voting precinct for many Grant Park residents.

12:25: Mary Norwood showed up at Parkside Elementary School with more than a dozen supporters.

She talked with some of the voters and spoke briefly with Stella Berzsenyi and Flora Smith, both. 8 years old.

“Do you want to shake hands with somebody who might be your next mayor?” she said and they did. “This is a wonderful day. Atlanta is a wonderful town. I believe a lot of people are coming out to vote and we have a tremendous amount of support.”

If she wins today, Norwood said she would hit the ground running, working on the transition. But she was also prepared for a runoff.
