The city council voted in June to cut $14,000 in funding
to the [Greensboro] partnership, along with other nonprofits.

A last-minute effort to restore the funding failed,
with council members Perkins and Nancy Vaughan on the losing end.

Knight and Councilman Danny Thompson voted to maintain the funding cut.

“I think you’ve got to support the Greensboro Partnership,” Perkins said.

“And I don’t think you can have a briefing session and have a 5-4 vote
against retaining the full support of the partnership
because you’re cutting advertising funding for the program….

So number one, you’ve got to support the partnership.

Number two, you’ve got to support an environment in our city
that small business thinks is stable, that we are going to support them,
we’re going to be there for them.

Meaning Robbie wants the Partnership
to be there for him and his?

We’re going to give them the confidence
to invest both money and time to make their businesses grow in our city.”

Who's money and time?

Whose Businesses?

Vaughan said, “...I’m very aware of what’s going on in the partnership and the chamber,
and I support them 100 percent.

This year, our funding was cut by 10 percent during our budget process.

I advocated very strongly to restore that 10 percent.

Unfortunately, I was not successful..."
