Mayor’s Office

Mayor Carolyn McAdams

Carolyn McAdams was elected mayor of Greenwood in June 2009. Since that time, she has made the revitalization of Greenwood a priority of her administration, overseeing the development, adoption, and implementation of Greenwood's first comprehensive plan in more than thirty years.

Since being elected mayor, McAdams has spearheaded the completion of Greenwood's $1.4 million Howard-Johnson Streetscape Improvement Project and has embarked on a $2.2 million linear park project that will revitalize the Carrollton-Johnson corridor in downtown Greenwood.

Community Pride

With community pride as her guide, she has committed her time as mayor to cleaning up Greenwood through better code enforcement, investment in Greenwood's parks, sidewalks, and streets, and more frequent neighborhood police patrols, all while keeping taxes low.

Mayor McAdams has also focused on making Greenwood a healthy and environmentally friendly community, helping Baptist Town residents start their first community garden, establishing the Mississippi Delta's first municipal recycling program in Greenwood, and developing the Yazoo River Trail.

In addition, Mayor McAdams was instrumental in Greenwood being named a 2012 Healthy Hometown by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation due to our commitment to providing opportunities for active, healthy living
