My first reason is the astonishing fact that Greensboro uses (needs)(sells) less water in 2008 than it did thirteen years ago in 1995 when I was hired. I accidentally caught last year’s water use in the news and it seemed too low. I checked it out , and what I uncovered I believed the citizens have a right to know.
My second reason for reintroducing the Randleman Dam conspiracy is that over the last few years several City of Greensboro scandals have surfaced. There’s the Project Homestead fraud, the Civil Rights Museum fraud, the Corruption inside the Police Department, the City Council's current efforts to fire the City Manager and plenty of evidence that elections and the City Council are controlled by special interest groups.
I have enjoyed publishing the evidence of fraud in this blog. We grew up being taught that, "You can't fight city hall," but the Internet has really changed the balance of power. It is empowering to have the ability to publish what the Greensboro News & Record refuses to publish!
