“When the going gets tough, the tough get going,” says the adage. Nancy Hoffmann, District 4 Greensboro City Council representative, personifies that statement.
Not only does she hold open office hours (37 in the past five-and-a-half years) in order to listen to citizens’ concerns and then respond, but she also walks neighborhoods to meet constituents and hear their voices.
If you know someone who has contacted Nancy about a problem for which the city has responsibility, you know she tackles the problem and follows through to resolution.
And how about the National Folk Festival! This year’s festival has been wonderful, and we owe the origins in Greensboro to Nancy’s urging support from fellow council members and for seeking recognition for our city from the National Folk Festival organization.
Did you notice the lines of people at the food trucks at the festival?
Guess who sought the city’s agreement to permit food trucks in town? That’s right; it was Nancy again.
Remember Nancy Hoffmann’s contributions to our city when you vote this October. She represents us well.
