Greensboro Welcomes New and Returning City Council Members

Tuesday evening, December 1st, the City of Greensboro’s newly elected Council was sworn in.

This ceremony was preceded by tributes to outgoing Mayor Yvonne Johnson and outgoing Council members Mike Barber and Sandra Anderson Groat.  

As most of you probably know, the City Council is composed of a Mayor and eight Council members (five of whom represent districts, while the other three are at large members representing the entire city).  Council establishes policy, and a City Manager executes Council policy and manages City departments.  This is called the Council-Manager form of government.

Our current Council members are:  Mayor Bill Knight; Mayor Pro Tem Nancy Vaughan, At Large; Robbie Perkins, At Large; Danny Thompson, At Large; T. Dianne Bellamy-Small, District 1; Jim Kee, District 2; Zack Matheny, District 3; Mary C. Rakestraw, District 4; and Trudy Wade, District 5.

Please remember that if you’re interested in following Council meetings, but unable to attend in person, you can still watch the meetings on cable television Channel 13, as well as on your computer.
