For better or worse, this is not the way Greensboro politics have been practiced in the past.
Rakestraw and Wade are bringing a County commission vibe to the City Council.
That said, this has been a long time coming. I wrote more than a year ago that "the long knives are out for Mitch Johnson, and the Wray fray is the reason."
One hears less often these days that David Wray did nothing wrong. This column seemed to reflect something in the zeitgeist, in terms of both Wray's alleged missteps and some unfair characterizations of his nature.
But Mitch Johnson has become an issue unto himself for many people, apart from anything Wray did or did not do. If that wasn't clear before, it's in the open now.
