DGI proposal crookedness personified by conflicted references and connected cronies

Zack Matheny's proposal for Greensboro's downtown improvement district proposal has become a great example of how corrupted the City's staff and Council have become.  After listing Assistant City Manager David Parrish, who is said to be involved in determining who gets the contract as a reference, Matheny also lists ArtsGreensboro's Tom Philion, whose organization has is and continues to gain from City Council votes, making Tom a 'yes man' along with Parrish for references as Tom serves on DGI's board and takes money from taxpayers with Zack's help and the News and Record's complicity and profitability, as ArtsGreensboro pays the paper, literally, for positive press with the help of Margaret Moffett, who is in Mike Barber's back pocket, and has been for years. 

Zack is City Council and City Council's donor paymaster's pawn and lobbyist.  Now, via a clearly rigged RFP process, as Zack came in with a $999,771 proposal when the limit was $600,000, the game's outcome appears clearly predetermined and rigged for the inside elite crowd.

These folks have no problem pulling fictitious numbers out of their asses, as the local news industry is going to back them up without investigation or question.

Margaret Moffett is complicit, as her salary is partially paid for by ArtsGreensboro who pays the News and Record for propaganda

Here's the latest example of Tom Philion's take from the City of Greensboro budgeted handouts for nonprofits in in exchange for his reference for Zack's continued take from City taxpayers, written by none other than Margaret Moffett;


Something is very wrong with Zack Matheny's DGI proposal, which just won approval by the City of Greensboro
Mayor Vaughan and Zack Matheny are Roy Carroll etc...'s pawns, along with most of council
as declared by multiples of high ranking City of Greensboro employees behind the backs of their crooked/fucked up/corrupt/crony leadership who are sick of being abused with lies told to the public by the News and Record and the Rhino Times 

Zack Matheny had a direct financial interest in applying for a job he voted to fund, and now Tom Philion and David Parrish and the rest of Council are in on getting Zack a new contract with an incorrect and overpriced proposal which violated the RFP rules of engagement, without consequence.

Zack Matheny, Nancy Vaughan and Mike Barber put their own interests of power, income and reelection in front of the best interests of City of Greensboro taxpayers, and the News and Record and the Rhino Times didn't report it, as they are in on the pay to play.

Mike Barber is a known liar who tried to extort the DGI job for Zack Matheny out of Cyndi Hayworth after Zack leaked Hayworth's lack of education credentials, leaving her ineligible for the job after Matheny helped get Jason Cannon fired to get the same job and the News and Record and the Rhino Times didn't report it and endorsed Mike Barber as he personally profits from taxpayer owned properties.
City Of Greensboro Subsidizes News & Record via ArtsGreensboro
Still no word on Mike Barber's golf cart delivered to his home by a City of Greensboro employee, as Margaret Moffett has her head so far up his ass she won't investigate or report anything negative on her patron saint.
