On Wednesday, Feb. 19, Sixth District Congressman Mark Walker let it be known who he favors in the District 5 Guilford County Board of Commissioners Republican primary.
Troy Lawson, a former chairman of the Guilford County Republican Party and former candidate for the NC House of Representatives, is running to fill the Guilford County Board of Commissioners District 5 seat that’s now occupied by Jeff Phillips, the current chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners.
Troy Lawson was 15 when he exited a Boston subway station and saw U.S. Sen. Edward Brooke on the street shaking hands.
Lawson said, “I’m very aware of the issues in east Greensboro. I’m someone who comes from a community like that in Boston. I know what it feels like to have no hope.”
