Ed, you mean the transparency that never took place? Old news, wouldn't you agree?

Ed Cone

It's a process, not an event. Changing culture takes time. I think we're making progress, if slowly.

So you think so? When I contacted city staff to submit my PIRT asking for 2 years of e-mails to CPE@greensboro-nc.gov per my link above, I was told they didn't know the e-mail address existed. That hardly shows a process. In fact that shows a complete lack of process.

Councilman Barber at his non profit makes $86,250 with one other employee makes $35,308 from total 2012 take of $362,722 so close to $121,000 of non profit for one year is for 2 salaries at first tee which is golf fore fun on guidestar. which if you take percentages then 33% of non profit goes to 2 salaries and close to 23% goes to just Councilman Barbers salary.

...Item 13 is now one of them though!

Billy Jones

Yeah, how's that transparency process working out now?

Ed Cone

Billy, please try to limit the frequent links here to your own site. Thanks.

As far as your report, is there not a meaningful difference between "city funding" and "city paying for services rendered?" I'm not sure the latter is a best practice, but is it the question asked on the disclosure form?

On the plus side, this may be a better story than your absurd inversion of the service relationship between the City and The First Tee, so, progress!

Billy Jones

Ed asked, is there not a meaningful difference between "city funding" and "city paying for services rendered?"

Well that I really can't answer for certain but I do know that the IRS requires reporting of both on Federal Form 990s and in the case of First Tee of the Triad, Mike Barber failed to report it on his Federal Form 990 or disclose it on his City Council Disclosure Form.

And then there's Mike Barber's destruction of public records that I could point you to if not for your objection to my linking to my own blog. But then you never were one for transparency when it came to exposing the status-quo, were you, Ed? At least, not since the whole GPAC thing started.
