Welcome to this week’s YES! Weekly Pop Quiz, where we ask elected officials about their jobs. This week the questions are directed to members of the Winston-Salem City Council. The rules are simple: No research, no callbacks.

QUESTIONS

1. What is the number of call-center jobs that could be created as a result of the council’s decision to approve $500,000 in incentives to CFS II on July 16? 2. The council is considering an ordinance change to curb front-yard parking. Would the measure be a citywide ban or a selective ban based on a petition process? 3. How many years has Kalvin Michael Smith been in prison?
