Atlanta Councilmember Natalyn Archibong has some opposition headed into this year’s city elections.

Archibong, who is running for a fifth term, is being challenged by Liliana Bakhtiari.

It could be a tough race for the incumbent council member. Bakhtiari has some early buzz as she is running to become Atlanta’s first “queer Muslim woman” to serve on the City Council, according to Teen Vogue.

She’s running on a platform of “Commitment to Community,” “Economic Equality for All Humans” and “Building Better > Building More.”

Project Q Atlanta describes her as a business owner and community organizer.

Archibong’s campaign theme is, “Becoming better by working together.” She is currently working as an attorney. She is touting a list of accomplishments during her four terms, including:

– Support of establishing the Edgewood Retail District

– Allocating more than $250,000 to community projects

– Acquiring five acres of land for the Kirkwood Urban Forest

– Sponsoring the “Imagine Memorial” project to improve the Memorial Drive Corridor
