Vernon Robinson Defeated!

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this sooner. The defeat of Vernon Robinson in Winston-Salem is definitely a good thing for the continued urban development of downtown and city planning in Winston.

Robinson, in addition to his bizarre antics of race-baiting radio commercials and putting the Ten Commandments monument on the steps of city hall, has been a consistent critic of any of the efforts to increase economic development in the city and to redevelop downtown.

I've never seen a more divisive person in local government, and often wondered how he kept getting the votes to stay on Council.

Here's a hearty welcome to Robinson's replacement, Molly Leight.

It is great for downtown and Winston-Salem as a whole that Robinson was defeated. Let's hope that Molly Leight will be as active as he was, only channeling her energies towards progressive, positive positions.

I am JUBILENT that Robinson was defeated! He was divisive in his rhetoric and the whole thing with the Ten Commandments ticked me off. All he did was "hijack" a religious symbol for his own political gain. Hopefully he is done for in politics in this town!

Being in his ward and in a new subdivision where we have some issues(drainage pipes) to address with the city, I am glad we are going to have new representation!
