Sometimes They Only Need Know Someone Is Watching

One of the problems I've discovered with the current "leadership" of the City of Greensboro is that no one seems to know what is going on. Or in this case, not going on.

When I first reported the issue of Greensboro's Water Quality Cheats I decided I should look up recent online water quality reports. Problem was: Some were missing, prompting me to submit a public information request asking for copies. Today I got the following reply:

Hello Billy,

I hope this information is helpful to you.

To which I replied:

"I see they finally caught them up. Had they been there all along I would have never asked.

I hope others watch over my administration just as hard when I am elected Mayor of Greensboro in 2017. Together we can turn this city around.
