What are the chances Justin Outling isn't playing ball for Brooks, Pierce's other clients if he got 16 Brooks, Pierce employees to give to his campaign so far?, and some Marty Kotis

2017, Mid Yr, Outling Justin, Justin Outling, PDF;

How much taxpayer money has Justin Outling voted for Marty Kotis,
since Justin was appointed to City Council, just like Tony Wilkins was, 
and now just like Goldie Wells was?

Yes, I am saying appointing Council members right before elections is crooked politics

I am also saying accepting an appointment to City Council and then running is crooked,
which makes Justin, Tony, and now Goldie, crooked and cheating elected leaders
who perverted our community with cronyism and political favors, 
along with all the other Council members who voted to let an appointee run
without a commitment that they wouldn't

Our local paper of record's lack of pointing out Marty Kotis is one of North Carolina's biggest HB2 supporters

Who gave to John Hardister;

William Marshal Kotis III - $3,799.96

Why did Marty Kotis give Phil Berger $10,200?

"Companies scorned HB2, but donated to lawmakers who passed it"

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

This is what selling a property to Greensboro's biggest campaign donor reads like

Is Marty Kotis buying City of Greensboro property for less than the appraised value illegal?

North Carolina and Greensboro's leadership and sold-out press have made a joke of our community and state.  They perverted and rotted our economy from within.  Our elected leaders have lined their donors' pockets in exchange for campaign donations and signs on commercial properties and billboards. 

These 'leaders' and their financial backers have ignored the travails of the average income citizen.  We want good paying jobs back, as Roy Carroll, Marty Kotis and the Koury's among others at the top of our local food chain effectively opposed living wages and basic worker rights via purchased state legislators and crooked, crony backed legislation.  Think about how much more money Marty and friends can make by more easily firing newly pregnant restaurant servers and hotel house keepers.  Just on insurance premiums, these fine folks living off the rest of us who hire and pay low wages to those, who if they say anything about it are immediately fired without any governmental intervention.  Many used to call it slavery.  Now it's the same thing, without the stigma as it has become something of a national pastime for the 1%.

If 'we' are dumb enough to believe 
with the help of Marty Kotis, Roy Carroll, and Koury Corporation 
are paying to tell us to believe
which is what the bible thumping morons on the local far right
are are saying they believe, in direct contradiction to basic rationality,
there is seriously something very wrong with our local society
and our local political and economic establishment are in on it.

Marty Kotis appears to be saying he doesn't want any gays anywhere near his properties
or eating at his restaurants because they are gay or trans
by not asking for his money back from those in North Carolina's legislature
who have lost thousands of jobs for our state

I wonder is all the City Council members in Greensboro 
are going to give Marty the money he purchased them with back
because he favors discriminatory legislation

Marty only extracts rent from most of the restaurants on his properties, which the News and Record's Allen Johnson doesn't seem to understand.  But Allen doesn't understand basic economics, so that's what we have for an 'opinion leader'.  

More like a cheerleader of the uneducated variety whom everyone likes to look at anyway.

Doug Clark and Allen Johnson didn't understand or foresee what happened last time the economy tanked, and their jobs are to not know or report as we decline once again.

They, along with the Triad Business Journal, are just cheerleaders for the 1%.
