District 1 Representative Carla Smith
I'm very proud to be your Council Representative. District 1 is rich in history and is home to some of the most visited sites in Atlanta. District 1 is the home of the Atlanta Braves and Turner Field, Zoo Atlanta and the Cyclorama and more. But more than the sites to visit, I am sure that District 1 is home to some of Atlanta’s best people. Our communities are diverse among many lines and there is room for us all. Ride through the district sometimes and enjoy the view. There is much to see. District 1 boasts over 20 neighborhoods.
