Greensboro101 Editorial Board Resignation

I have officially resigned from the Greensboro101 Editorial Board and also as one of the business advisors of Altmedia101. From the beginning of Greensboro101, I have supported the business of citizen journalism and Roch has done great work in this field. I hope that he keeps at it and am successful with what he does.
Being one of the core Editorial Board members and one of the first invitees to be on the business advisory board, I’m sorry to leave. But the reasons are pretty much similar to what Sue laid out in her resignation post.

  • There was a process that we handled every topic that seemed somewhat contraversial. This was no different than anything else, but for whatever reason, procedure was not followed, nor was the file at least temporarily removed until the board was able to convene.
  • The distribution of the report already created some thoughts of possible legal issues that could arise. These are issues that were not consulted with any of the editorial board members or as far as I know, business advisory board members.

I had no interest in reading the RMA report, nor did I want it. So far, I have had little trouble gaining any information I wished from my district’s councilwoman on any subject and if there was a reason that she kept it confidential from the rest of her constituents then I trust that there was a good reason to do so. That opinion is echoed by some that have read the report apparently.
And so I join Sue, Cara Michele, and Jay. I’m sorry to leave but it must be done.
