Mayor Bottoms' demand came at a cabinet meeting on Monday morning. The mayor released the following statement regarding the request:

“I have asked for the resignation of all Cabinet members, and after further assessment will determine which resignations I will accept.

“Consistent with what I said upon taking office in January, I have taken the first 100 days to evaluate the leadership of my Administration. There are many talented leaders within the City, and I look forward to continuing to work towards creating the team that best reflects alignment with the goals and opportunities we look to pursue over the next four years.”

The mayor told FOX 5's Morse Diggs her action is not related to last week's federal corruption indictment of former Atlanta city employee and Atlanta School Board member Mitzi Bickers.

Mayor Bottoms said she promised the staff of former Mayor Kasim Reed that they would continue to have their jobs while she evaluated talent over the first 100 days of her taking office.

The 100-day mark comes on Wednesday, April 11.
