A letter from Greensboro citizen Ed Keohohou in July 12, 2007 Greensboro N&R states:
Candidate for city office should purchase locally
"How can anyone run for City Council at large and make claims that he will support the city of Greensboro, but take his graphic business out of state? Not only out of Greensboro and Guilford County, but out of state. That's an insult to the business community. Go figure, people."
My comment on the N&R website:
Thank you Ed for your comment. Much lip service is paid to supporting local businesses by candidates for city council and also by sitting members of the council.
All of my promotional materials were purchased locally when I ran for Greensboro City Council. Having been a small business owner for over 25 years, I understand the importance of buying locally. I practice what I preach.
Thank you again for your support of local businesses.
