"Greensboro Site Of State, Local NAACP Rally": Did the Rev. Dr. Cardes Brown speak out against gutting RUCO with NC Senate Bill 683 and House Bill 554?

"Around 8:30 a.m, members, supports of the local and state NAACP chapters
held a rally for justice.

According to a news release sent out by the organization,
the rally was to challenge the extreme, radical, right wing attacks on educational equality,
economic justice and equal protection under the law.

Rev. William Barber, State NAACP President,
said attacks on those issues damage our social environment,
weaken our democracy and undermine our communities future.

Rev. Barber was joined by, Greensboro NAACP President, Rev. Dr. Cardes Brown, a
nd other members of the local branch of the NAACP.

"Rev. [Cardes] Brown's church has outstanding housing code violations that need to be corrected.

They won't have a RUCO violation
unless they tried to rent out the substandard house that they own
before the code violations are corrected.

There were also people from local organizations and religious groups.

The event started on A&T's campus at the fountain
and ended with a march and prayer at the Greensboro Four Statute.

3/11/10 Hearing
3/11/10 Repairs will cost < 50%
3/11/10 Repair order

4/19/10 Reinspesction
5/19/10 Not in compliance
5/19/10 Vacant & closed
5/19/10 Schedule reinspection

The current violations involve exterior structure,
interior structure, electrical equipment and water system.

The initial entry is "initiate housing process,"
so I would assume there wasn't a RUCO issued previously for this property.

So, as you said, that would make these housing code violations
preventing the owner from obtaining a RUCO."
