Gboro council —who’s rushing?

The N&R’s Allen Johnson calls the Greensboro City Council’s vote on the Bessemer Shopping Center a “rushed, confusing affair.”

Confusing? Definitely. But rushed? Only if you call an eight-hour debate, discussion and public hearing over two meetings “rushed.” What should be more worrisome are the issues they were forced to rush through because they spent so much time on a shopping center. Personally, I was hoping for a little more discussion and debate before the early morning vote to take over the Cascade Saloon.
