CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Mecklenburg County leaders will vote at the end of the month to decide if they will name a county building after former Commissioner Neil Cooksey.
They want to rename the public health building on Billingsley Road to Neil C. Cooksey Public Health Center.
Cooksey died after a battle with pancreatic cancer last month.
An attorney, Cooksey joined the commission in 2008, representing District 5.
He vowed to cut the cost of government while making it more effective.
Last year, he announced he would not seek re-election so he could spend more time focused on his faith, his family and his job.
