The Info List - Michael Barnes (North Carolina Politician)

--- Advertisement ---

Michael Barnes is the mayor pro tempore of Charlotte, North Carolina. He also served as acting mayor for a short time following the resignation of former mayor Patrick Cannon, who was arrested on March 26, 2014 for corruption charges.[2][3][4] Barnes immediately became acting mayor upon Cannon's resignation. The City Council was then required to appoint a mayor to serve out the remainder of Cannon's term (through Dec. 2015).[5] On April 7, the council voted to appoint Dan Clodfelter, a state senator, as the new mayor. Barnes, an attorney and a member of the Democratic Party, served as a member of the Charlotte City Council representing District 4 for four terms until he was elected to an at-large seat in the 2013 election. Following that election, he was chosen as the new mayor pro tem by his colleagues.[6] References[edit]
