Greensboro government could be improved considerably.
My first suggestion would be to pay the mayor at least as much as we pay the director of the coliseum. The colliseum director could be paid a commission based on how much money the facility doesn't lose.
But that's another suggestion. Back to my first suggestion.
Part-time job, Full-time job. What's the difference? The mayor is on-call all the time.
If the mayor were paid a decent salary, Greensboro would not have to depend on the generosity of big business to support our mayor and this would also be an incentive for seeking the office. Our choice of candidates would improve drastically and people with good ideas and skills wouldn't have to sell out to special interest bankrolls.
This is not a new idea, just a good one. I have several other suggestions that would improve Greensboro. I'll get to them another time.
