Best City Council Member 

Mayor Edna Jackson

By City Charter, the Mayor of Savannah holds little actual power. That is, until something really unusual happens, such as the shooting of Charles Smith by a police officer on Augusta Avenue. The ensuing unrest had every possibility of making Savannah another Ferguson, but Mayor Jackson’s calm, soothing presence and total commitment to a peaceful resolution got the community through that extraordinarily difficult time.

Runner-up: Tony Thomas
