According to news stories, the Mayor of Greensboro, Robbie Perkins has massive amounts of debt and has declared bankruptcy.

As a citizen of the Greater Triad, I think that the mismanagement of Mayor Perkins' personal finances brings into question his ability to run the largest of the three principal cities in the Triad. After all, if he can't keep his own ship afloat, how can he be expected to successful manage an entire city?

LOL Mayor Allen Joines of Winston-Salem just can't stop getting citations for accidents hes involved in. He had a fender bender with his BMW while talking on the cell phone last time. I don't think hes up to the job in "steering" Winston-Salem in the right direction

Allegedly he was leasing a condo at Center Pointe for his extra marital activities, the good news being the city council controls the checkbook.
