On the Rhino Times Greensboro City Council endorsements for Roy Carroll

"Vaughan was instrumental in coming up with a financing plan for The Tanger that could get the support of the City Council."

John Hammer

Vaughan's financing plan is chock full of bogus accounting fallacies

No mention of how Nancy let a US Senator's brother in law David Hagan
make hundreds of thousands n the land acquisition instead of City taxpayers paying nothing,
as Greensboro has its own realtors on salary 

On Greensboro's TPAC and some obviously bogus math from advocates who stand to profit

300 more seats than DPAC
with an average household income
of $20,000 less in the Greensboro metropolitan area.

If a TPAC patron were to drive down Elm Street at 10pm after a show, 
it's not what most white folks would consider to be a safe feeling scene.

We are going to build a performing arts center very near the poorest part of Greensboro.

There is almost no way to get in and out anywhere near as quickly as DPAC, 
which is clean to the point of sterile, and has a fake river running through.

White elephant TPAC may be, 
after being misled by many who stand to personally profit from the project,
like John Hammer, Roy Carroll, Randall Kaplan and Kathy Manning.

Vaughan was instrumental in putting together a bond package that the voters would approve
and now that money needs to be spent.

...The Greensboro City Council has plenty of divisiveness 
and has no problem spending money...

John Hammer

Spending the money = tax increase John 'dumb-ass' Hammer

If the bonds are sold and the money borrowed, they have to be paid for
with higher taxes, which was written into the package, which means a tax increase

John Hammer speaks out of both sides of his mouth;
Roy Carroll's and his own, which he may have used to believe in what he says, 
but has since admitted that he sold out to Roy and is now just a corporate mouthpiece

The money will be spent for the benefit of Roy Carroll and friends,
so John has to be both for it to keep his job, 
and against it to keep his financially illiterate conservative base still reading 
one of only 5,000 Rhino Times papers printed each week

Nancy Hoffmann, Tony Wilkins and Justin Outling thinking they are reaching 50,000 Rhino readers, or just paying or getting paid by Roy Carroll for endorsements?

The Greensboro-Randolph megasite is in the running for the Toyota-Mazda auto plant.

...The Greensboro-Randolph megasite is on the short list for a new Toyota-Mazda automobile manufacturing plant, which would bring 4,000 jobs to the area.

John Hammer

Bullshit, after HB2, which Roy Carroll, Marty Kotis, Jim Melvin, Tony Wilkins, 
John Blust, Jon Hardister, John Faircloth, Trudy Wade and Phil Berger actively supported?

Other than consultants working for the Piedmont Triad Partnership,
who's saying the Megasite is on any short list?

Why would a major Auto manufacturer take the risk of setting up shop
in the middle of racist bigot land, still controlled by the same homophobes 
who financially and legislatively advocated for hate among a population
hoping for a knight in shining armor to come in with thousands of jobs
who will then take the heat for doing business with a bunch of admitted 
intolerant, small minded and prejudiced elected officials and legislators? 

Barber has pledged not to raise the tax rate for four years.

John Hammer

Barber just voted for a water and sewer rate increase,
and John Hammer is too cowardly to admit it, so he just keeps on lying to his readers,
like letting the following ad by Nancy Hoffmann run, which is a total fabrication;

Fake fiscal conservatives Tony Wilkins and Justin Outling vote for City of Greensboro Tax Increase along with Nancy Hoffmann

"District 2 City Councilmember Goldie Wells was appointed 
to finish out the term of Jamal Fox..."

"Outling was initially appointed 
to take Zack Matheny’s seat in the summer of 2015..."

"Wilkins was appointed 
to finish the term of state Sen. Trudy Wade after she was elected."

John Hammer

John Hammer is for elected leaders who cheat to win,
as long as it is in Roy Carroll's best interests,
as these fine folks will vote Roy however much taxpayer money as possible

Outling was instrumental in the passage of an agreement by city councilmembers 
not to raise the tax rate this year.

John Hammer

Greensboro City Council member Justin Outling should resign
"Outling voted on the UnitedHealthcare contract and Brooks Pierce has an unrelated contract with UnitedHealthcare. But according to the law, Outling cannot recuse himself; the City Council has to recuse him. If the City Council doesn’t recuse a member of the City Council, they have to vote. Also, the city attorney, Tom Carruthers, didn’t recommend that Outling be recused."

John Hammer


Justin Outling Violates State Ethics Law

"Councilman Justin Outling violated conflict of interest rule"

Greensboro City Council succumbs to extortion by UnitedHealthcare

NC Bar Complaint Against Justin Outling

Tammi Thurm won the primary
over District 5 City Councilmember Tony Wilkins by 80 votes

John Hammer

Greensboro council, including Tony Wilkins, voted to increase taxes upon the City's poor to give a parking deck to Tuggle Duggins and Roy Carroll

Wilkins has worked to get Greensboro to lower its tax rate;
the result of that effort is not a lower rate but that the rate hasn’t been raised, 
which is not what Wilkins wanted but is better than a higher rate.

John Hammer

John Hammer is a coward, and should be told such news 
by any fiscal conservative who comes into contact with his lying ass,
after telling his readers Tony Wilkins didn't vote to raise taxes after he did
