It was interesting to read the Greensboro News and Record today, 7-15-2010 to read the investigative reporting from Mark Binker regarding the local chairman of the Greensboro ABC commission. Now the Governor has chimed in CLICKHERE and wants serious action taken against Katie Alley.
One interesting thing to read in the paper edition that is not online is that Mike Fox, the lawyer for the Greensboro ABC commission, wants to meet asap on this issue, but some are out of town and starting next week some will be attending the Association's annual meeting.
Which gets me to what you are going to see in the scribd version below2010 Summer Conference Bulletin for N.C. Assoc. of ABC Commissions
As you can see from the registration above but if you can't see the scribd version you can go to this web location CLICKHERE and what Mark Binker wrote this morning, the North Carolina Asssociation of ABC Boards, which is a part of the State of North Carolina, is spending our tax dollars in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Not anywhere in North Carolina.
The room rates look to be around $200 a night and the conference registration is $145 for the meeting.
We can also probably say that the chairman's and other attendees will probably come back to North Carolina and expense this trip as a business trip in another state.
Does anyone see the irony in this?
Our state ABC association is housing their annual meeting in another state.
Are you kidding me?
Let's see if anyone will talk about this on top of all the ethical lapses in judgement of boards from Charlotte to Wilmington to Greensboro, now that they are meeting in another state.
You would think in this recession that a North Carolina association would want to spend their dollars in North Carolina.................think not.
