Welcome to the YES! Weekly week’s pop quiz where we ask elected officials or candidates three questions. This week’s questions were addressed to the Greensboro City Council and were asked on Monday and Tuesday. The rules are simple: No research, no callbacks.


1. Who won the at large school board race for Guilford County? 2. When is the post-RUCO committee’s draft ordinance expected? 3. Who do you think should replace Trudy Wade?

Robbie Perkins, mayor

1. Sandra Alexander [ ] 2. We haven’t even gotten there. It should be in the next couple of weeks. [X] 3. I won’t give any answer on that. [ ]

Marikay Abuzuaiter, at large

1. Sandra Alexander [ ]2, Dec. 1. [ ] 3. Honestly, I would like to look at the resumes first. I don’t have anyone in particular in mind. [ ]

Nancy Hoffmann, district 4

1. Sandra Anderson… No, why am I blanking on her [last] name? She was running against Tillman and was a professor at A&T. [ -] 2. I don’t know that there’s really kind of a definite date at this point but most likely something could come to council in early December. [ -] 3. I think we’re going to go through this process of interested individuals submitting their resumes. I have no preconceived notions about that. [ ]


1. Incumbent Sandra Alexander won reelection. Hoffmann’s descriptions are accurate. 2. According to a memo in the IFYI report, the draft ordinance is expected Dec. 1, which would likely put it before council in early December. 3. Answers vary. The city is accepting applications because Wade won her race for NC Senate District 27 and will leave city council.
