I am running for Mayor to bring 50,000 jobs to Greensboro and Guilford County over the next 10 years. I want my kids to be able to live and work around Greensboro after they graduate college. The status quo is currently an impediment to the chances of my being able to watch my grandkids grow up close by. We cannot bring in good paying jobs with an uneven playing field for businesses looking to relocate or expand. I believe we don't have a level playing field, which means some of our city's leaders have acted in the name of our community, while favoring a select few in an ethically inappropriate manner.
John Hammer: "City Budget Raises Pay, Adds Holiday"
"...There has been virtually no discussion
on the vast majority of the city budget this year.
...the economy may not be good where you're sitting,
but it is great at city hall.
For the second year in a row,
employees of the City of Greensboro will get a raise.
...Councilmember Zack Matheny
had the Community Theatre of Greensboro
added to the list of performing arts nonprofits to get money from the city.
Matheny also asked that the Wyndham Championship be added for $10,000.
...The council also added more funding for the Chamber of Commerce.
...It was announced that the Guilford County Board of Commissioners,
which is even more out of touch than the Greensboro City Council,
plans to start a parks and recreation department.
...Along with a raise, the city employees are getting another paid holiday.
...Roth described the holiday as a "bonus" for city employees.
