Natalie W. Hall is the Fulton County Commissioner of District 4, which encompasses the heart of Atlanta, downtown, Midtown, Old 4th Ward, Collier Heights, and legacy neighborhoods west of the Mercedes Benz Stadium to Fulton Industrial Boulevard. The unique attribute about this district is that it’s completely inside of the City of Atlanta.

Since her election in 2017, she has been a voice on the Board that champions equality, justice, and advocating for the needs of some of our most vulnerable populations. She maintains a strong conviction that the government should work for the people. Hall has been instrumental in the development of many vital initiatives such as Project Level Up (Fulton County DA’s Youth Recidivism Program), CEO’s of Tomorrow and Empowering Young Men to Excel (two annual youth conferences reaching over 500 students), the Annual Joan P. Garner Walk and Health Fair, Senior Beltline Tours, and much more.

Commissioner Natalie Hall was elected as the Fulton County District 4 Commissioner in 2017 after the passing of Commissioner Joan P. Garner, who she served as Chief of Staff for six years prior to being elected. Commissioner Hall is a Chief Administrative Executive with over twenty-five (25) years of management experience in the areas of program direction, performance management, budget planning and administration, inventory management, information technology, strategic and operational business planning, and human resource management.

Over the past 17 years, Natalie volunteered at various organizations and events, such as Hosea Feed the Hungry, Atlanta Union Mission, and Old 4th Ward Neighborhood clean ups. A few of the boards she has served on are the Executive Board of the Historic 4th Ward Park Conservancy Board, Executive Board of the Chastain Park Conservancy Board, and the Executive Board of Neighborhood Planning Unit M (NPU-M).
