Mayor Knox White is running for re-election

After announcing his run for re-election, Greenville Mayor Knox White recently sat down with the Journal for a wide-ranging interview on where the city currently stands and what plans are in store. 

White has led Greenville during some of the city’s most substantive transformations — from the revitalization of downtown and the opening of Falls Park in 2004, to the ongoing progress of Unity Park today. 

  • Affordable housing is a crucial facet of the next phase of Unity Park.
  • White recently received the Urban League of the Upstate’s Whitney M. Young, Jr. Humanitarian of the Year award.
  • The affordable housing bond, the green bond and the neighborhood improvement bond will work together to help manage growth.
