Terry Wood named interim Greensboro city attorney
GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Greensboro City Council has selected Terry Wood to serve as interim city attorney.
Wood served as Greensboro city attorney from 2008-2010.
“City Council is pleased to bring Terry back into an interim role where he has experience leading the city attorney’s office,” Mayor Nancy Vaughan said in a statement. “We believe Terry is the right person at the right time because of his familiarity with our staff and legal processes and we’re excited to have him on board.”
Wood retired in 2010 after serving in the city’s legal department for 24 years. He replaced former City Attorney Linda Miles.
Wood will begin his new position effective Wednesday.
City Attorney Mujeeb Shah-Khan resigned last week following a closed session meeting with the Greensboro City Council. Shah-Khan says the city asked him to step down.
The announcement came a week after questions were raised surrounding a $750,000 loan given by the city to the International Civil Rights Center and Museum last fall.
