After writing What The News & Fishwrap Never Told You About Tiny Houses Greensboro: Part 4 on Thursday and setting it to autopost at 5:00 AM on Friday morning I sent the following e-mail to Mayor Vaughan, all of the Greensboro City Council and several of our Guilford County Commissioners:



Like I noted in the e-mail, I'd not yet talked to Goldie Wells before I wrote the part 4 and set it to autopost. I'm writing this post on Thursday night but may not post it before Saturday or later. In almost no time at all Guilford County Commissioner, Ray Trapp, who represents East Greensboro, wrote back to me:

Looks like Ray has the next election in the bag. How will the rest respond?
 
Crickets! They're scared of Goldie Wells, they're scared of local developers, and they're scared of me.

On December 8, 2016, the Triad Business Journal writes Nonprofit's 100th house goes to Greensboro resident. They gave it away free of charge, deed and all. But it wasn't Tiny Houses Greensboro or even a local non profit who gave it away. Nope, our big non profits fund $80 Million Dollar performing arts centers the working classes will never be able to afford to use, while telling us it's best to rent to the poor.

And still, Scott Jones,
Rural Vice Chair of the Guilford County Democratic Party wants to rent tiny houses to the homeless and get Greensboro and Guilford County taxpayers to foot the bill through the Guilford County Schools, (Weaver Academy) the Interactive Resource Center, grants, the Greensboro Housing Coalition and others.

And all of those agencies receive taxpayer funding. How many layers of management do we need to build a house? One man can build a house.

From Fox 8, Tiny Houses Greensboro to help those in need:
"According to a count done by Partners Ending Homelessness, more than 700 people are homeless in Guilford County. The American Community Survey also found that there is more than 25,000 renters in Greensboro who are cost burdened."

So the solution is to create more rental property? My big ol' hairy ass, it is. The solution is to help people own homes!
Like Councilman Ray Trapp wrote in his e-mail I posted above:
"...homeownership is the first step to creating wealth and self sufficiency."
 In Charlotte they reduce homelessness and save the taxpayers $1.8 Million Dollars a year but here in Greensboro the plan is only to spend and spend and spend... Why?
 
"Housing is not necessarily a solution to homelessness."

In Charlotte they work to build community but here in Greensboro, even esteemed fellows of the Center for Creative Leadership, like
Rural Vice Chair of the Guilford County Democratic Party, Scott Jones, scheme to keep the poor trapped in the system while feathering their political caps.
And they make you foot the bill.

Oh, and Scott, I was wrong when I told you we have 30,000 readers here at EzGreensboro.com We're up to 50,000 now.

There will be no rented tiny homes in east Greensboro and you can bet hard hit south Greensboro communities like Glenwood and Pomona won't stand for it either once they discover what is really going on. It's owner occupied or not at all.

Also, a little more on Tiny Houses Greensboro Director, Scott Jones, Rural Vice Chair of the Guilford County Democratic Party. Seems back in 2010 he ran for Guilford County Sheriff... as a republican. And was charged with assaulting a Guilford County Deputy-- a felony. Yes, he was later found innocent but all these many different names in which he has operated the same business and the switching of political parties apparently to run for what ever office he thinks he can get is... Well, you decide for yourself. You don't need me to think for you.

Hold your horses, don't ride away on a lame stallion. Silver needs a vet. Stay tuned for What The News & Fishwrap Never Told You About Tiny Horses Greensboro: Part 6.
