It's been 55 days since the News and Record didn't report Marty Kotis getting $600,000 from Greensboro's taxpayers to design a bike path inside a consent agenda

"Date difference from Oct 18, 2016 to Dec 6, 2016

The total number of days between Tuesday, October 18th, 2016 and Tuesday, December 6th, 2016 is 49 days."
This is equal to 1 month and 18 days.

This does not include the end date, so it's accurate if you're measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be 50 days.

If you're counting workdays or weekends, there are 35 weekdays and 14 weekend days.

If you include the end date of Dec 6, 2016 which is a Tuesday, then there would be 36 weekdays and 14 weekend days including both the starting Tuesday and the ending Tuesday.

49 days is equal to 7 weeks.

The total time span from 2016-10-18 to 2016-12-06 is 1,176 hours.

This is equivalent to 70,560 minutes.

You can also convert 49 days to 4,233,600 seconds.

Today is 12/6/2016 and 10/18/2016 is exactly 49 days before today.",+2016/to/Dec+6,+2016

A consent agenda is a meeting practice which packages routine committee reports, 
Board meeting minutes, and other non-controversial items 
not requiring discussion or independent action as one agenda item.

Legal Theft, by Whoever Votes for Greensboro's City Council Agenda Item 34

Proposed legal theft of taxpayer money; "developers want $8 million in taxpayer money from City of Greensboro"

George Hartzman's words addressing the issue on June 16, 2015;

What's happening Along Lindsay Street and Eugene Street?

$188,280.87 to Upgrade an Existing Undersized Storm Sewer and Water Line, where a developer that has received City approval to construct Bellemeade Village.  Who is going to own Bellemeade Village?  Isn't it Roy Carroll?

Any City Council members who have not received campaign cash from Roy Carroll or the Roy Carroll funded Triad Good Government PAC, please raise your hands.

This is the height of political stupidity.

A few years back, Mr. Carroll received a benefit like this for the property he sold to American Express, who had just fired 1,600 Greensboro based employees.

The city spent more than two million dollars to get the sewer line installed under I-40 for Roy Carroll's AMEX backup data center project, which was just as underhanded and transparency lacking as this deal, buried in the consent agenda.

If anyone feels like Greensboro taxpayers have been misled on this item, don't raise your hands?

I believe those who feel that way are correct.

This is crooked and shameful.

We just gave Roy a million dollars worth of prime downtown street, and now he wants the city to upgrade his water and sewer at everyone else's expense, hidden in a consent agenda by Carroll stool pigeons and bought and paid for Council Members.

Congratulations Roy Carroll, Tuggle Duggins's Mike Fox and John Hammer.

How much did the city spend to get the sewer line installed under I-40 for Roy Carroll's AMEX backup data center project?

Pay to Play; Revolution Mill Business Development Manager Nick Piornack's unreported Jamal Fox Campaign Contribution

When in doubt, buy a newspaper and buy as many local politicians as possible, by Roy Carroll and John Hammer

Council give aways to the connected few, including Nancy Vaughan campaign contributors, hidden in meeting consent agendas.

Taxpayer funded Mike Barber the City Councilman's taxpayer funded First Tee of the Triad, supported by Jim "megasite" Melvin, who recieved millions from this City Council for prep in southern Guilford County while he and his cronies contributed to the campaigns of multiple Council members.

A free street and water and sewer for Roy Carroll, whose Rhino Times endorsed candidates who voted for his taxpayer funded hand outs, while he appears to have funded multiple candidates via the "Triad Good Government" PAC.

Income for the Vaughan's via free methane from the White Street landfill while Nancy served on the Solid Waste Committee.

Mike Barber's extortion of Cyndy Hayworth to get Zack to be Greensboro's biggest campaign contributor's taxpayer funded lobbyist.

The City Council who shied away from police enforcement racial disparities untill the New York Times forced the subject down their throughts.

The Say Yes to Education and Say Yes Guilford program, which appears to have made some undoable promises to the City's poorest, while allowing Mary Vigue to lead the due diligence effort on the program, who then got hired to lead the local program, which then asked for City taxpayer subsidised office space.


This is the story of a crooked city who got caught red handed oppressing its minority population that wants to stay crooked, with the help of the local paper of record, who makes money from taxpayers on public notices few read.

Isn't it interesting Trudy Wade tried to eliminate the News and Record's public funding for notices and the fight against redistricting? How many stories were there lambasting Trudy for trying to take taxpayer revenues from the News and Record?
