Public Service

Community service has always been a passion for me.  I’ve lived in Greensboro, North Carolina for 33 years and worked with many neighbors and community groups to make the City of Greensboro a better place to live.  Throughout the years we have had some challenges, but we as a community kept our eyes on the mark and have experienced continuous and steady growth.  As a community, we’ve kept the White Street Landfill closed to household waste; built a state of the art technical and environmentally friendly McGirt-Horton library and after 17 years, redeveloped a dilapidated shopping center into our new Renaissance Shops featuring a Credit Union Bank and Pharmacy.   As a Councilman, I worked to increase economic development to attract new businesses, develop and sustain small businesses and nonprofits with an emphasis on minority businesses as well as improve public safety.  With two terms of city council experience, I understand what it takes to find solutions, how important it is to work together and navigate the complicated governmental agencies to help get things done.
