Charlotte is a great city- I believe that there is a large gap between the conservative and liberal citizens and that these gaps create political tension in the city. If we could create a more moderate local government, many issues between these gaps of citizens could be resolved.

There are many restaurant options in the Charlotte area! You can enjoy cheap but quality food, or pay a lot for the atmosphere and fine dining
In the Southern part of Charlotte, there are many grocer stores so that is great convenience. Also there are two malls within close proximity and allow for great dining and night life.
