Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens Makes Key Administrative Changes

Time to move on!

Atlanta’s Mayor Andre Dickens is moving some people out and around his cabinet after only serving two years. 

Between the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and city administration, Atlanta will see new faces in leadership departments across the growing city. Jan Lennon will move from deputy general manager of operations to temporary general manager, replacing Balram “B” Bheodari, who has worked at Hartsfield since 1999.

Kentorri Garmon, who previously served as the department’s director of innovation and performance management, is taking over as the interim commissioner of the Department of Public Works.

The two leading women worked together to improve the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department stations and airport operations.

“We are building for the future, but we also know we can make a difference in people’s lives. My Moving Atlanta Forward agenda has achievable action items, and we’ve seen that by bringing people together from the business, government, and nonprofit sectors, we can get more done faster.”

The mayor is also adjusting things in the court system. He appointed former co-director of the Safe & Stable Homes Project at the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Pierce Hand Seitz, to the City of Atlanta Municipal Court. Dickens celebrated his decision, citing Seitz’s background as an educator and his commitment to fair legal representation.
