Mayor Jennifer Roberts will be the city of Charlotte’s lone representative at this Sunday’s Super Bowl in Santa Clara, Calif.
Roberts is scheduled to leave for California on Friday afternoon and return Monday morning. The Super Bowl will be played Sunday evening.
Her spokesman, Gregg Watkins, said she would be doing media interviews Saturday. She also plans to tour a new transit center in San Francisco.
The city has said no other employees are attending the game on official city business. The city will pay Roberts’ expenses, which the city estimates at $5,100.
