A new voice in Greensboro politics

Local billionarie Percy Walker has employed a new voice in local politics: The Denigrator. (Get it?) In his debut, this man of great swagger and few words has looked into the background of our finest (and only) blogging councilwoman and declares… “Carmany is a liar“.

DBS, master communicator

Update:  Scoop got the poop from the GPD and it stinks.  More: Doug Clark’s tongue is planted firmly in his embarrassed cheek.

That settles it… in a cowardly fashion

I’m reconsidering a previous position. In his email to Ed Cone about the Bryant Electric thing, City Manager Mitch Johnson states… “…per the contract Bryant had with the City of Greensboro my role was as a third party judge (I know this sounds strange but we had several contracts which stipulated that any disagreement would [...]

Full time mayor?

Rosenberg peers into a future day-in-the-life of a full-time mayor of Greensboro for his weekly N&R column.  A couple of my favorites on the to-do list for that particular day… 10:10 a.m.: Check with physician: Is frequent leaking of RMA and other documents normal for mayors my age? and this one… which is not so [...]
