Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts has announced that she will run for reelection.

Roberts stood firm against the North Carolina General Assembly pressuring Charlotte to rescind its nondiscrimination ordinance in order to strike a deal on House Bill 2.

While this drew her applause from the LGBTQ community it has also resulted in criticism from some camps. So too has the city’s handling of the Keith Lamont Scott police shooting and subsequent protests. She has admitted the city should have been more transparent.

One reply on “QPoll: Do you support Mayor Roberts in her reelection bid?”

  1. Senator Ford will not get my vote as he is willing to dump our LGBTQ citizens down the drain and rob them of their rights just so he can kiss up to Raleigh. He is offensive to us all.
