Missing Atlanta mayor
About North Georgia

In your article on the history of the city of Atlanta, you failed to mention Mayor Bomar

My records indicate that Dr. Bomar was a member of the first city council (1848) and was elected Mayor in 1849 (2nd mayor) yet there is no mention of him that I can find on your website. Are my records incorrect, or has Dr. Bomar been excluded for some other reason?
