BREAKING: Nancy Hoffmann seeks D4 re-election

District 4 Greensboro City Councilwoman Nancy Hoffmann announced in a press release this morning that she will seek re-election. Hoffmann's involvement in citywide and downtown issues during her first term led some to believe (myself included) that she may run for council at-large.

The press release emphasizes her engagement with young professionals ("they are our future"), her work as chair of a council subcommittee addressing a post-RUCO ordinance to deal with safe rental housing and her accessibility to constituents.

Hoffmann also served on the council subcommittee designing a new tree ordinance (which is still in the works) and briefly brought up the noise ordinance again earlier this year. Hoffmann defeated incumbent Mary Rakestraw in the 2011 election. We will have much more detailed coverage of the city council campaigns once filing begins this summer.

District 4 covers the central western and northwestern parts of Greensboro including the Guilford College area and stretching as far north as Battleground Avenue. The district reaches parts of High Point Road and I-40 to the south but does not extend eastward enough to encompass downtown or surrounding neighborhoods.

Not sure what district you live in? Here's a map.

UPDATE: Hoffmann will be challenged by Bill Knight, who served one term as mayor as a political newcomer before being ousted by Robbie Perkins in 2011.
