LOCAL: Why is the Greensboro City Council's 9/14/2021 Meeting Not Noticed on Its Website?

John Hammer, Rhino Times, reported on September 2, 2021 that the Greensboro City Council plans to appoint a new “at-large” Council member to replace Michelle Kennedy at its September 14, 2021 meeting.  However, no meeting is scheduled for that date.

Is this an oversight or something far more nefarious?

More than thirty (30) individuals have nominated themselves to replace Ms. Kennedy, but several do not reside within the City of Greensboro, and, are therefore, ineligible. 

It will take five affirmative votes on the City Council to appoint a replacement who will finish out Kennedy’s term on the City Council. 

Important dates:

Thursday, September 9, 2021

The deadline to apply to be appointed to the vacant City Council seat

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

The primary for the City Council election

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

The statewide primary for the November 2022 general election

Tuesday, April 26, 2022

-or-

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

The date of City Council general election and the statewide primary runoff election, depending on what races have runoff primaries

 

Who wants to ask the question?  

If I got anything terribly wrong, please let me know.
