Pop Quiz


Welcome to the YES! Weekly Pop Quiz, where we ask politicians and public servants questions about their jobs. This week we called four county commissioners – two from Forsyth, two from Guilford. The rules are simple: The candidate must answer immediately – no research, no callbacks.


1) How much does it cost to take a PART bus from Greensboro to Winston-Salem?

2) How much did you spend on gas last week?

Guilford County Commissioners

John Parks (D-at large)

1) I think they changed it recently. I would hate to be way off… is it two dollars?

2) Easily $60

Billy Yow (R-District 5)

1) I don’t know

2) Probably $160

Forsyth County Commissioners

Beaufort Bailey

(D-District A)

1) No, I don’t know.

2) $65

Debra Conrad

(R-District B)

1) I don’t know. I’d guess about two dollars

2) I was in Florida last week so I didn’t buy any gas. But usually it costs me $55 to fill up my tank. I’ve been driving less, so I’m only filling my tank a couple times a month. I work out of my house and I live in a really convenient location. I tell all my friends that I’m about two blocks from anywhere.


1) $2

2) The less the better
