Remember when then Greensboro mayor Robbie Perkins negotiated a $19 million deal with the county to bring water and sewer lines to eastern Guilford County and open up 9,000 acres to development?
Isn't Guilford County's prison farm in eastern Guilford County?
Isn't Guilford County's prison farm within the 9,000 acres?
In my view, what happened with the $19 million was an incentive for Roy Carroll's AMEX data center that didn't come with the publicly reported deal.
American Express had eliminated about 1,600 Greensboro employees at their call center.
Robbie said there would be no incentive package.
Next thing anyone knew, the water sewer infrastructure leading to the American Express site was allocated from the trust fund for Roy's property which now has the data center.
Maybe the biggest incentives aren't called incentives.
If Greensboro "invested" in water and sewer for 9,000 acres in eastern Guilford County, why does the Haystack proposal say it isn't it all coming from Greensboro instead of other municipalities, if what Robbie said happened, happened?
Maybe the biggest taxpayer rip-off of the last few years is the one almost no one is aware of.
Think Roy's Rhino will investigate?
Did the Rhino investigate in the first place, while Hammer was backing Roy's noise ordinance?
It's not as though I didn't tell John personally on multiples of occasions.
It's not as though I didn't tell John about Robbie's Gunter Crossing deal before the Bill Knight loss.
Did Guilford County's Commissioners know that Chester Brown was about to own Gunter's Crossing when he represented Robbie Perkins' LLC for a $124,000 grant?
Who gave Andy Scott permission to fund a study for the Guilford County prison farm property?
Who asked Andy to do the study?
Why wasn't the money Greensboro taxpayers "invested" in eastern Guilford County for "9,000 acres of development" good enough to get to the prison farm?

I predict the Rhino will stay in business long enough to affect the District 6 Congressional race to Roy Carroll's advantage in the Republican primary in 2014, just as he and Hammer did in the 2013 City Council race.
I predict the Rhino will underreport incentive deals related to Roy Carroll's friends or Roy, and continue to scrutinize deals that would compete with Roy or his friends.
The hotel deal hasn't been investigated by the Rhino at all;
From the 2010 Greensboro funded study for the Elm Street Center hotel, of which the Rhino can't seem to investigate
