Did Brenda Jones Fox and Skip Alston retard ticket sales by publicly humiliating the Figure skating championships?

“I don’t know why this is just coming before us now,” said County Commissioners Chairman Melvin “Skip” Alston. “We’re going to listen to what they have to say, but I don’t know that we’re going to be able to do anything for them.”

...County Manager Brenda Jones Fox said the county hasn’t been dragging its feet about the request. In fact, when Carrow initially approached the county he’d asked for much more and been denied, Fox said.

...Fox said when Carrow sent the request for $40,000 worth of support to Alston, they decided to put it before the commissioners.

Didn't Skip know they asked in 2009,
and if he didn't, why didn't Fox tell him
when "they' decided to make the request public?

...Alston said he is glad the event will be held in Greensboro, but isn’t sure the county will be able to contribute to it.

“We’re going to hear his presentation,” Alston said. “But that’s a lot of money to be talking about right now, and right before they get started.”

If the initial request was denied privately,
why did Alston and Fox decide to drag the Figure skating championships
name through the mud, right before the event
if they didn't have to?

Did Alston and Fox just lose the publicly owned Greensboro Coliseum
ticket, parking and concession revenues,
by raising an issue in public that didn't have to be?
