About Dan Besse:Dan Besse was born in North Carolina, son of a U.S. Marine and a public school teacher. He graduated from Hickory High School (1973), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1977), and UNC School of Law (1980).
After most of a decade representing poor families as a legal aid attorney in coastal North Carolina, Dan returned to his native Piedmont and made his home in Winston-Salem. From 2001 through 2020, he represented the Southwest Ward on the Winston-Salem City Council, elected and re-elected as a Democrat to represent his constituents for five terms.
As an elected local official, he also made good transportation a special focus, including safe streets, good public transit, and a growing network of safe biking and pedestrian paths, greenways, and sidewalks. He represented the City of Winston-Salem in leadership roles on the urban area Transportation Advisory Committee, the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation, and the National League of Cities.
In both his public and private roles, Dan champions strong neighborhoods, good public schools, first-rate police and fire protection, healthy communities, a clean and green environment, equal opportunity for all, good affordable housing, good jobs for working families, and building a welcoming community for all.
We look forward to hearing from Dan, and we hope to see you next Tuesday!
