[ARCHIVED] Mayor Joines’ Statement on the Death of Joycelyn Johnson

Mayor Allen Joines today released the following statement on the death of former Council Member Joycelyn Johnson:

“On behalf of the citizens of Winston-Salem, I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of former Council Member Joycelyn Johnson. Joycelyn Johnson was a dedicated public servant who worked hard for not only the citizens of the East Ward, but also for the good of the entire community.  

“As chairman of the Public Works Committee she pushed for improved working conditions for the city’s Sanitation Division and other service functions. In recognition of her support for city employees and her advocacy for quality service to our citizens, the building that houses the city’s public works functions was named in her honor in 2018.  

“On a personal level, I was able to work with Ms. Johnson as a member of the city staff and then as a follow elected official. I was always appreciative of her kind and gentle manner, while respectful of her fierce advocacy for programs she felt were needed. “

Johnson served four terms on the City Council from 1993 to 2009, representing the East Ward.
