Greensboro City Council Member Robbie Perkins Getting Sued by Former Partner in Yes Weekly

Greensboro City Council Member Robbie Perkins is getting sued by Richard Maxwell a former partner. This report will be in this weeks Yes! Weekly by Jordan Green CLICKHERE or click on the title above or get a copy at your local outlet.

While reading the article there was one aspect that really stood out and it all happens to be the transparency in bringing statewide ethics to the local level.
Here is what was said in the article

"Maxwell’s agreement with Perkins and Johnson commits Piedmont Triad Commercial Properties to pay Maxwell listing shares of real estate brokerage commissions paid by Vineyard Ventures, and a number of other real estate companies, including Greensboro Centers LLC, Signature Partners, Century Partnership, 2205 North Elm Street LLC, 612 Industrial LLC and Shamrock Capital Partners LLC. “Maxwell has found himself in a controversy with Perkins and Johnson regarding their other co-ventures, including most pertinently, Vineyard Ventures,” the lawsuit contends, adding that Perkins and Johnson insisted that Maxwell contribute additional funds to Vineyard Ventures. "

Later in the article it was stated about who Robbie Perkins partners are in the venture here is that statement
"Stratton is a Greensboro-based developer, and Johns is described as a partner of Richard Childress on the Childress Vineyards website. "

Look at all of these different business ventures and ties to other local developers and other people.We have already talked about Robbie Perkins and his ties to Roy Carroll another developer who in a few months will get the red carpet treatment from the powers to be in Greensboro on center pointe . It is time for local politicians to inform the local citizens on business relationships that might influence their votes on city council or could get ecomonic incentives for sewer and water.

We need to know who are the investors in Greensboro City Council member Zack Matheny business venture off of Highway 68 or is he still involved with this company?

Who are the other local investors in the companies Robbie Perkins has?

These are just a few of the questions that may well be answered if the State Legislature will pass a bill in the house called "Extend Ethics Laws to City and County" House Bill #487 CLICKHERE
