In today's News & Record editorial about the Greensboro City Council race, the writer stated that Robbie Perkins chose not to seek re-election in District 3. That statement was correct. However, the writer(s) then mentioned the candidates for that district.
All of the candidates mentioned as running in District 3 are actually running for the District 4 Seat vacated by Florence Gatten. Ms Gatten, who says that she promised not to run more than twice in District 4, has filed to run at-large.
I wonder how many people helped write this column; because, in another paragraph Tom Phillips is mentioned as an unopposed candidate in District 3. This is a correct statement. Mr. Phillips is currently serving on the council in an at-large capacity and is running unopposed in District 3 where Robbie Perkins will not seek re-election.
The editorial department at the News-Record might need to consult someone to check facts about the status of the Greensboro City Election.
