The Atlanta Journal-editorial Constitution’s staff is led by veteran reporter Tamar Hallerman.
She covers in-depth pieces on how governmental action — or lack thereof — affects Georgians’ quality of life, including death rates and water entitlements. She moved to Atlanta in December 2019 after spending nearly ten years covering Capitol Hill and four years working as the paper’s Washington reporter.
For the AJC, Hallerman wrote on the congressional delegation from Georgia, Sonny Perdue, the election administration, and President Donald Trump’s historic political rise. Hallerman has previously written for newspapers, national radio, and publications on topics like Congress, energy policy, and government spending.
Hallerman is a Virginia native who attended American University in Washington, D.C. Every week, she makes an appearance on Georgia Public Broadcasting’s “Political Rewind.”
