The Issues

Greensboro faces some vital opportunities and some important challenges.

  • Responsive & Honest Government

    Folks want their elected officials to be more accessible, to welcome their ideas and hear their concerns. Citizens must be able to trust elected officials to act in the best interest of the city and all citizens. The best way to establish and maintain this trust is through transparency. Only when city business is conducted with openness can citizens fulfill their responsibility to be involved and hold our governing bodies accountable.

  • Public Safety

    One of the most important and costly functions of local government is public safety. Our police officers, firefighters and first responders must have the training and equipment they need to perform in ways dictated by best practices and our community’s standards. Pay must be competitive to attract the best talent possible.

  • Economic Development

    We must support existing businesses and encourage new ones. A business friendly environment is a necessity for the future of our city. Part of this effort involves assisting minority and woman owned businesses in competing for local jobs, contracts and sub-contracts on city projects.

  • Housing

    Some housing solutions do not require more regulation or more direct city dollars. We should focus on fairly enforcing existing zoning and city ordinances throughout the city while cultivating greater community involvement through private/public partnerships for rehabbing run down properties.

  • Parks, Recreation & Green Spaces

    Some of the best things Greensboro has going for it are our parks, recreation facilities and green spaces. They provide affordable and accessible places for individuals and families to engage in healthy recreation and relaxation. They are good for the environment too. They must be protected and maintained throughout the city.

  • Equality & Fairness

    City Council represents all residents of Greensboro. As such, each resident should have equal access to Council members and their concerns and ideas should be considered. Each part of the city is as important as any other. Economic incentives and city resources should be shared equitably to significantly decrease the disparities that currently exist.

 

What are they saying?

  • “Lindy Garnette was speaking at a meeting of Democracy Greensboro in early May when someone called out: “Lindy Garnette for mayor!” Despite the half-joking endorsement, many people in the room instantly applauded.

  • “We have fantastic people across our beautiful city,” she said. “They deserve leadership that serves with integrity and rejects the politics of division. That’s who I am and how I’ll serve.”
