Keisha Lance Bottoms on Principles & Values

 

 


Don't just go along with what I say; push back

During one of her first cabinet meetings as mayor in 2018, she met with her department heads, nearly all of whom were holdovers from the Reed administration. It quickly became clear that the new sheriff in town was not like the old one. "If I tell you to jump off a bridge, don't just do it," she said, according to an official who was there. "Somebody needs to stop and ask questions. You're all here to give me advice. Don't just go along with what I say. Push back."
