Now more than halfway through what he hopes will be the first of two terms, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed sat down with WABE's Denis O'Hayer for an extensive interview.  

In part one, the Mayor talks about the future of Fulton County and criticizes the county's government for its management of the county jail (for a story on the response from County Commission Chair John Eaves, click here).  

Mayor Reed also discussed efforts by some state lawmakers to restructure MARTA, and the future of transit in the metro area.
