Abstract:
Carrboro mayor, Eleanor Kinnaird, is known for her vision of making the town vibrant, alive, and a desirable place to live. Under her vision, Carrboro has been called “The Paris of the Piedmont.” Not all residents like her vision and some are concerned that she is too focused on change and neglects the town's history as a blue-collar area.
