This will be funny...if history is correct, this item will go down in flames about 75%-25%. Although the commissioners are not to balme for this one, it's the people who keep voting for these bonds. They vote yes time and time again..and then wonder " why is the county cutting back services"???? I have never voted for a tax increae my entire life (including bonds..which are tax increases), and anybody who does is a retard. Oh..and I am rich..I can afford an extra quarter cent. it is the poor people who have to carry the burden for these stupid projects. Remember THAT next time you vote for a bond. Doesn't matter though..this item won't pass anyway

Excuse me Mr. Yow, but if the sales tax proposal is voted down do you think that would be the voters telling you that they don't want higher taxes, but instead expect you and the other commissioners to cut spending and the size of government? hmmmmmmm.

Guilford County has always been a spend spend spend county.

It's time the citizens dump the incumbents.

I live in Forsyth and I have always been glad watching Guilford go nuts that I don't live there.

I think Greensboro is sinking in a cess pool. It use to be the most advanced city in the Triad, now when I rarely visit the Walmart on Wendover, I feel I am in a ghetto.
