Zack Matheny in 2009: Is there more that needs to be done with our substandard housing around the city or are we caught up on that?

"As it relates to RUCO, I believe Greensboro, North Carolina is above average
on what we’re doing throughout the state of North Carolina.

Not anymore.

If Zack thought RUCO helped Greensboro,
why did he vote to table the motion on June 7,
and why didn't he say anything in support of RUCO
before, during and after the state passed
and then Bev Purdue signed it out of law?

The fact that we have RUCO, the fact that we have a RUCO board,
and looking at our sister communities throughout the state of North Carolina,
we’re above average.

Not anymore.

We will still have a RUCO board.

As long as we have a RUCO board,
as long as we have an engineering and inspections person...

...Yes, the playing field may be leveled to a certain degree.

We’ll continue to analyze it.

I think we’re above average, and hopefully we’ll stay there.

Tenants who rent the very best housing they can afford will very likely always be tenants. They will save no money toward home ownership. I rented substandard at 1/3 the price I was paying at fancier place. Saved about the equivalent of one months pay per year and put it aside. My house has no mortgage.
