Shirley Franklin was elected the first woman mayor of a major southern city in 2002 and served two-terms until 2009 when her term limit expired. During her eight years, Atlanta experienced unprecedented population growth and afforded Franklin the opportunity to partner and collaborate with many local and regional leaders in addressing urban policy challenges, including urban planning, economic development and infrastructure. Aside from her role as a public official, her community service spans over 35 years in Atlanta and includes her active participation in the arts, homelessness and higher education.
