BEST MEMBER OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT
City Councilman Anthony Foxx

Staff Pick

A repeat winner. Foxx is rare in Charlotte. He was actually born and raised here. In 2005, he was elected to the Charlotte City Council as an at-large member and maybe his knowledge of the city has something to do with his sage actions on the council. For instance, in a time of budget crisis for Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools, Foxx led the charge to give CMS the money that the city owed the school system from the Safelight/Safe Speed program. Of course, everyone else fell in line and voted to give CMS what was owed to them. Foxx is currently running for mayor, hoping to be the first person not named McCrory to lead the city in more than a decade.
