Should the Greensboro News & Record's Editiorial Board, who have a quid pro quo "ads for tickets" contract with the Coliseum, advocate for including the Aquatic Center on the Coliseum's budget?

"Young acknowledged that the city has not yet budgeted for the operation of the aquatic center,
explaining that he received a budget proposal from Coliseum Director Matt Brown last week...

“There will certainly be an additional expense,” Young said.

“The question at this point is how that expense is going to get addressed.

Is it going to get covered within the coliseum’s budget
based on the fees that they generate from the activities of the facility
or it going to require something additional from the general fund to cover that?

And I haven’t made a determination on that.”

The city recently created a position for aquatic center manager,
and hired Susan Braman to fill it at a salary of $65,000.
