Mayor Foxx to take stage Tuesday at DNC



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx told Channel 9 anchor Blair Miller more about his prime time speech during the Democratic National Convention.

Foxx stopped by the Channel 9 studios on Sunday night.

Foxx told Miller he will take the Convention stage Tuesday night between 6 and 8 p.m.

Foxx said he wants to talk about the people of Charlotte and what the city's residents have been through in recent years.

“I’m going to try and talk about the aspect of it because I think there’s particular interest in the issues we’re facing now as a local community, but also to the country and what the country is going through,” Foxx said.

Foxx also said he expects a few slip ups along the way, but thinks the city will be pleased with the convention put on in Charlotte.
