GPAC design team finalized by the Community Foundation for Greensboro Taxpayer's money without a Council vote?

At this point, this is very believable.  Was there a bidding process?  How much do these folks stand to make?  What are their connections to GPAC task force members?  No conflict of interests?  Isn't someone from Moser Mayer Phoenix on the task force?  What input did city council have?  Who's paying for the services of these companies?  WTF?

Voters were bypassed to begin with, even if we were told differently. The whole thing stinks of corruption and soiled sheets and our entire council is complicit.
