Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens is known for being a mayor who seems to be everywhere.

But this week, he’s facing criticism over his being absent during the early hours of the city’s water emergency.

That’s as Dickens has already faced protests over his support for the Atlanta Police Training Center.
