At last night’s meeting, Guilford County Commissioner Kirk Perkins —good for him —- made a motion to fire County Manager Brenda Jones Fox, who is being investigated by the IRS and FBI for shady land deals the county has made under her watch.
Perkins’ motion to fire ‘visibly stunned’ some of his fellow commissioners. Really?
Excellent comment beneath the N&R write-up, considering the fact that we’re always so worried what others think of us here in G’boro:
From an economic development perspective, why would any company consider relocating or establishing new business in Guilford County? Once they see/read about Fox and (Commission Chairman Skip) Alston’s continued blind support of her activities, these prospective companies should question why they would place their resources and human capital in a county which has questionable management of the taxpayers, theirs and their employees, money.
What’s the point of doing business here when it’s clear the county manager’s buddies are first in line?
