Pre election unanswered City of Greensboro Information Request, not answered since September 26, 2011

If Denise Turner Roth was Vice President for Governmental Affairs
and acted as a lobbyist for the taxpayer funded Greensboro Partnership
which funds TREBIC and is a TREBIC member,
...and TREBIC was directly responsible for eliminating RUCO
with taxpayer funds from the Greensboro Partnership
and Robbie Perkins NAI Piedmont,
among multiples of other real estate related political contributors
who make money on taxpayer funded City of Greensboro business contracts 
and its been more than a month since the requests were made,
is City of Greensboro staff inhibiting transparency
before a City Council election to create a particular outcome?
Please provide any and all emails
from TREBIC's Marlene Sanford between the beginning of 2010 to the present
that contain any of the following:




"Rental Inspection"

"Rental unit Inspection"

"Residential Building Inspections Act"

“Robbie Perkins”

“Advisory Board”

Prior restraint

Prior restraint or prior censorship is censorship
in which certain material may not be published or communicated...

Prior restraint prevents the censored material
from being heard or distributed at all...

In some countries (e.g., United States, Argentina) prior restraint is forbidden,
subject to certain exceptions, by a constitution.

Prior restraint often takes the form of a legal injunction or government order
prohibiting the publication of a specific document or subject.

Sometimes, a government or other party
becomes aware of a forthcoming publication on a particular subject
and seeks to prevent it: to halt ongoing publication and prevent its resumption.

These injunctions are considered prior restraint
because potential future publications are stopped in advance.

...“Freedom of the Press” is defined as the right to be free from prior restraints.

Every freeman has an undoubted right
to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public;
to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press

William Blackstone

Prior restraint, on the other hand,
takes an idea or material completely out of the marketplace.

Thus it is often considered to be the most extreme form of censorship.

A prior restraint, by contrast and by definition,
has an immediate and irreversible sanction.

If it can be said that a threat of criminal or civil sanctions
after publication 'chills' speech,
prior restraint 'freezes' it at least for the time.
