One aspect of his campaign platform on his web site under issues has to deal with the appointment of citizens to boards and commissions in Greensboro. Here is what is on the site:
"Boards & Commissions - While serving on the Greensboro Board of Adjustments I’ve realized that the balance of our various Boards and Commissions is off kilter and that needs to be addressed. For example, the Board of Adjustments should not have two members of the same company sitting on the Board. This can cause progress to be greatly impeded upon should the individuals have a conflict of interest with one of the Board’s cases. Additionally, the methodology in which the council appoints citizens and the information they are provided about the current makeup of Boards and Commissions needs to be re-examined."
To say "off kilter" is an understatement. This has been talked about plenty in the past and needs to be addressed as a whole council in the future. All you need to do is CLICKHERE to hear what David Wharton had to say about the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition (TREBIC).
