It certainly looks like Nancy Vaughan has cast her lot with Robbie Perkins and the rest of the Greensboro liberal establishment in the ongoing effort to discredit the current conservative, smaller government oriented City Council as ineffective and unworthy of renewal.
"When a small group of council members decides issues behind closed doors, they violate the spirit of open government and transparency - ideas which every council member claimed to embrace during the last election."
Maybe I'm wrong and Nancy is referring to the non-transparent backroom deals and maneuvers made by Robbie Perkins and a few others, but I doubt it.
I guess we were all better off in the Democrat-liberal controlled City Council era that gave us Mitch Johnson, Linda Miles, Project Homestead, and the David Wray fiasco. The same people who brought you that wonderful pleasure cruise want the levers of power back.
After all, major controversies such as fighting over porn in the library, reopening the White Street landfill, and whether the new City Attorney should have a license to practice law in this state aren't nearly as fun and scandlous as the good old days of lies and corruption when the Council was under liberal control.
