Tammi Thurm the Issues Facing Greensboro

QUALITY JOBS IN GREENSBORO

By bringing together the seven colleges and universities located in Greensboro, our thriving aviation industry, flourishing small businesses, advanced manufacturing, financial services companies, and a forward-thinking city government, we are poised to attract new, high-quality jobs to Greensboro. We must work in unison to promote Greensboro as a great place to do business.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN GREENSBORO

With the passage of the $25 million Housing Bond in 2016, Greensboro is poised to make real advancements in the quality and quantity of affordable housing. Working together with residents, business leaders, and nonprofit organizations in our community we must establish policies that will promote a reduction in substandard housing in Greensboro as well as the development of new alternatives.

WELCOMING COMMUNITY

Diversity is a part of the fabric of life in Greensboro with over 100 languages spoken and more than 75 religious denominations represented. Greensboro was the first city in North Carolina to prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in housing, city employment and city services. Greensboro citizens deserve a City Council that is committed to equality in all aspects of life for all residents.

TRANSPARENCY IN GREENSBORO’S GOVERNMENT

Greensboro’s residents should expect openness, accountability, and honesty from their City Council. Through regular, accessible, face-to-face meetings with constituents, I will work to ensure that the residents of District 5 have an active voice on the City Council and that their concerns are addressed. It is only through transparency and accountability that we can have confidence in our city government.
