    i am writing to tell the citizens of greensboro that the time has come for the pro developer city council to start letting their citizens file a valid protest petition during a rezoning case. It seems that 37 years of being exempt are enough. The only way for this to happen is if people need to let their state representatives know about the issue of Protest Petitions which is a North Carolina General Statute 160a-385 and 160-386. Please e mail your representative from Blust,Harrison,Hagan,Dorsett,jeffus
