Skateboarding with a Republican mayoral candidate

It’s not every day that I skateboard. Well, I’ve never skateboarded before, and I would never have thought a Republican candidate for mayor would end up being my teacher.

Edwin Peacock III is running for mayor of Charlotte, and he took a moment out of his campaigning schedule to take me out to the half pipe in his backyard. While he showed me how to drop-in, we talked about gentrification, what’s best for the city, and being a “spicy mayor.”
