Wilmington hires lobbyist for short session


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to hire McGuire Woods Consulting to lobby for the city at the General Assembly's short session.

The council approved the $10,000 needed to hire the firm with the understanding that the work would only last two months. If the session goes longer, the city will have to decide if it will keep the firm on longer, which would cost an additional $5,000 a month.

$10,000 to lobby for what?

Is it for annexation, movie training money, general items?

It would be nice to know what we're paying for.

Isn't McGuire Woods

the same firm which employs the outgoing Governor's son?

public funds misuse, Amanda Knox prosecutors finally have to pay

Isn't it about time public funds misusers are held accountable such as in the Amanda Knox murder case where the prosectors are being investigated for public funds misused to create a video to get a conviction

how in the heck

is that relevant to this piece in any way, shape or form?

Are you on drugs?

So what? They're screwing

So what? They're screwing the present taxpayers so that they can screw future taxpayers?

Great news! We need another

Great news! We need another in Hollywood and still another in DC! Advertise! Promote! Grow!
