Office of the City Manager - Jan. 28, 2019
The city's legislative priorities for 2019 have been posted online at CityofWS.org.
Mayor Allen Joines and the City Council recently adopted 42 legislative priorities for 2019 at the federal and state levels. At the federal level, these priorities reflect positions that the city supports on a wide variety of issues. The city's representative in Washington, D.C., will share these priorities with our senators and congresswoman.
The state legislative priorities pertain to local goals that require the approval of the General Assembly. Bills to authorize these goals have been drafted and sent to the legislators who represent Winston-Salem in the hope that they will be introduced and passed during the current session of the General Assembly.
