Hoggard on the impending curb market decision:
Monday night's vote is now looking like a landslide toward sanity.
I'm hearing that Councilman Thompson also supports awarding the contract to the GFCM group. If this plays out, Danny is to be commended for recognizing that their proposal represents a great next step for the future of the Market in a manner that is respectful of its past and promising for its future.
Mary R. is probably too entrenched in her position and allegiances to back the Craft/Brummitt group, but there is still time for the Mayor and Dr. Wade to take another look at the proposals and see what the selection committee saw: a clear choice.
A lopsided vote would be the best thing in terms of healing wounds, because it would show that the matter has been settled decisively and allow people to move on.
Hoggard's earlier point about the customers being an overlooked constituency is a good one to remember. My guess is that most customers honor and respect the farmers and want very much for them to remain a core element of our great urban curb market.

That is correct David,
Danny Thompson called me Friday with his full support. After sitting on the sidelines as the RFP process played out, receiving hundreds of emails, and reviewing the proposals, he came to the conclusion that the GFM Proposal is best for Greensboro and all parties involved.
We hope that a decisive decision by Council will put this to rest to the market and all it's interested parties can move forward.
