November 5, 2013 - The Fulton County Municipal Clerk released official election results, and has declared Natalyn Mosby Archibong the victor of Tuesday's race for Atlanta City Council's District 5 seat. Jon Jones called to congratulate Archibong on a much-deserved victory. "Natalyn Archibong has dedicated over a decade to serving Atlanta and the District 5 community. Tonight, the people of our community voiced their gratitude for her work, and their desire to see her continue making great strides in the future," Jones stated.
Jones, who suspended his campaign and endorsed Archibong two weeks before the election, was thankful to all of his supporters who cast their vote for Natalyn, and for the 103 residents who voted for him anyway. The detailed breakdown of the votes are below:

With the results in and a clear winner declared, so ends this election season. Jon Jones expressed optimism at the prospect of continuing his quest to create a government more inclusive of the people. "This election has given me the opportunity to meet and understand my neighbors - the very people that make up the city of Atlanta. Building a government that listens, empathizes, and responds will always be my mission; and finding a way to engage citizens on a level that compels them to participate is, I think, a worthy cause," asserted Jones.
Nonetheless, the residents of District 5 have chosen a well-qualified Councilwoman to lead them in the next legislative session of City Hall. Archibong's experience and skillful diplomacy will undoubtedly lend to great accomplishments on behalf of the public that she serves. Good luck, Councilwoman!
