Mayor Vi Lyles shares her thoughts on recent City Council discussions on reneging on the contract to host the Republican Convention, plus our rising crime rate and more.

On the next Charlotte Talks...

Mayor Vi Lyles talks about current topics facing the city including a behind-the-scenes look at the council’s discussion last month about the possibility of the city pulling out of its contract to host the Republican National Convention. 

The mayor has been a long time proponent of hosting the convention, so host Mike Collins gets her take on that discussion. 

We also talk about racism in our community, the rising homicide rate, violent crime and her thoughts on ending the violence.
