Brandon Cory Goldberg

Atlanta City Council, Post 1 At-Large, GA

Brandon is a graduate of Cornell University and the Emory University School of Law. An attorney and resident of Midtown, he is extensively involved in Atlanta. From the Stonewall Bar Association to the Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition to the Democratic Party, Brandon has immersed himself in the fabric of Atlanta - striving to help build bridges and working hard to make Atlanta a city for all its residents. He is also a member of one of Atlanta’s oldest synagogues, Ahavath Achim.

Brandon’s family has a long history of public service and community engagement. His maternal grandparents were small business owners. They were also public servants, spending parts of their careers working for the Post Office and the Social Security Administration. His paternal grandparents, both immigrants, persevered to build their American dream. His grandfather ran a poultry business that grew over time to be a thriving wholesale company. His grandmother was a stay at home mom who went on to work in her daughter’s dress shop. Brandon’s father administered a non-profit nursing home, and his mother worked with special needs students. The organizations they volunteered with are too numerous to count.

Brandon’s engagement in Atlanta is reflected in the constant meetings and events that he leads. These gatherings have become all the more important in a virtual setting as we fight hard to maintain our connections during COVID-19. Working with friends, community partners, and people from all walks of life, Brandon’s favorite way to spend his time is helping one of his many organizations better Atlanta.
