Carolyn McAdams Qualifies to Run for Fourth Term as Mayor of Greenwod
Mayor Carolyn McAdams has filed papers and qualified to seek a fourth term as mayor of the City of Greenwood, Mississippi.
McAdams will run as an independent. The general election will take place on June 8, 2021.
McAdams said she thinks she has demonstrated that she is fair minded and will listen to the citizens, that she will work hard for the community and that she has put together a great team that can get things done.
Her top priority, she said, is “to provide safety and protection throughout the city.”
“We’re hoping to increase our police staff and take community suggestions on how to strengthen the department and make it more community-minded,” McAdams said.
McAdams cited the “unity of the community” as one of her top goals, saying she particularly thinks that Mission Mississippi, monthly meetings that connect churches and clergy across the community in prayer and discussion of common issues, is an important part of that process.McAdams emphasized that a mayor should be a good team player, and she feels she has done that. Her team of administrators and city leaders, she said, in addition to “supporters that have been amazingly behind me” give her the strength needed to continue her work as mayor.
