If both Downtown Greensboro and the Greensboro Partnership receive taxpayer dollars…

…why did the Greensboro Partnership, a Trebic member,
give Downtown Greensboro $25,000?

Better is a little with righteousness
than great income with injustice.

Proverbs 16:8

Why is the City of Greensboro giving $120,000
to the Downtown Greensboro Improvement Corporation
on Tuesday, June 14th?
page 117, fourth quarter contribution = $480,000 per year?

who sold Greensboro’s electorate on an Aquatic Center
with a non-independent, non third party “hypothetical”

Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism
because it is the merger of state and corporate power

Benito Mussolini

George House, Downtown Hotel,
Partner Randall Kaplan is a Greensboro Partnership board member

John Lomax, Trebic

A democracy will continue to exist
up until the time that voters discover
that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury

From that moment on
the majority always votes for the candidates
who promise the most benefits…
with the result that every democracy
will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy…

…nations always progressed through the following sequence

From bondage to spiritual faith
from spiritual faith to great courage
from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance
from abundance to complacency
from complacency to apathy
from apathy to dependence
from dependence back into bondage

So Downtown Greensboro was supposed to get a funding cut and the Councilmembers got a few phone calls and Downtown Greensboro and the Greensboro Partnership are going to be fully funded so they can lobby the city and county for more money.

the people who funded the elections are either Trebic, Real Estate Lawyers or Lawyers that do business for the city and county, or board members and associates of groups sucking taxpayer money out of our "elected officials"

A lot of Matt Brown Supporters in the campaign contributors attendance

this is who owns Greensboro.

They will get whatever they ask for, like the Aquatic Center.

And everyone else will get stuck with the bills.
