The Board of Alderman consists of 5 Aldermen and a Mayor, elected by the citizens of the Town of Kernersville to oversee government functions. The 5 Aldermen and Mayor are elected at large by the voters to ensure that each elected official represents the best interests of the town as a whole, rather than having a vested interest in a particular district. Both Aldermen and the Mayor serve 2-year terms. There are no restrictions limiting how long an individual may serve the town.

The mission of the Board of Aldermen is to continue improving the quality of life for each citizen through proper planning and growth and by providing excellent services and protection at an affordable cost.
