This is Graham's second stint on the Charlotte City Council, but this time, he is leading the Great Neighborhood committee.

"Our goal is to make sure all Charlotte neighborhoods are great, safe and secure," Graham said. "The goal is making sure people are part of the change and not victims of it. If we revitalize the corridors, we can begin to revitalize the area around it."
