This time, without population growth, Publix is going to get subsidized by Greensboro's taxpayers to take jobs from other grocery stores down the street.
Greensboro's City Council is violating the idea of free enterprise, by altering what should be an even playing field to benefit Roy Carroll, who put many of them in power with the help of John Hammer at Roy's Rhino Times.
We just gave Roy a million dollars worth of prime downtown street, $32 million for a parking deck, and now he wants the city to upgrade his water and sewer at everyone else's expense.
City Council Give Away; June 16, 2015; $188,280.87 of water and sewer for Roy Carroll hidden in item 9 of the consent agenda for Greensboro's City Council meeting
How much did the city spend to get the sewer line installed under I-40 for Roy Carroll's AMEX backup data center project?
Adam Smith, the father of modern economics wrote “The proposal of any new law or regulation which comes from [businessmen], ought always to be listened to with great precaution, and ought never to be adopted till after having been long and carefully examined, not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention.”
If a democratically elected government is supposed to protect the public from profit-seeking special interests, so the people don’t end up living “in a van down by the river,” while the “Man” captures the community’s regulatory and political apparatus with campaign cash, are Roy Carroll's actions symptomatic of a systemic disease afflicted on an apathetic population, enabled by a majority of Greensboro's City Council?
