BIG BIG on Greensboro Noise: Roy Caroll, Henry Isaacson, Robbie Perkins, Zack Matheny, Theresa Yon

..."When asked about who contacted him in favor of a more restrictive ordinance,
Matheny told YES! Weekly: “Roy hasn’t really reached out to me,”
though Carroll’s e-mail, which Matheny responded to, proves otherwise."

...“This has been a constant source of complaints over the last few weeks after Greene Street opened it’s rooftop tent,” Perkins wrote."
 If Robbie Perkins put the proposed Noise Ordinance on City Council's agenda,
why would he say it wasn't a good idea?
“The council made a very wise move by not voting on what was proposed,”
Perkins said at the Downtown Residents Association meeting.


...Business owners at locations like Greene Street say they will be negatively impacted,
and even though the ordinance is citywide, they say they feel targeted.

“I think we’ve got a problem, and it’s basically been brought to light by the Greene Street bar
and what they do on the rooftop,” Perkins said."


Flip-flop (politics)

A "flip-flop" (used mostly in the United States),
U-turn (used in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland),
or backflip (used in Australia and New Zealand)
is a sudden real or apparent change of policy or opinion by a public official,
sometimes while trying to claim that both positions
are consistent with each other.

Will John Hammer report the truth?

Will the Greensboro News & Record?
