This didn't fit into our District 5 city council election article coming out tomorrow for a few reasons (namely because of space), but it still merits publication.
In his candidate interview last week, Leone brought up the issue of public-information requests and said: "I ask for stuff I don't need just to keep them working."
Leone, who will face Tony Wilkins and Alex Seymour in the Oct. 8 primary race, added that he did it to keep people guessing about what he was up to on his campaign.
On Aug. 2, we reported that Leone had 13 open information requests with the city. For example, here's an excerpt from a staff report about open public-information requests:
The list is included in the city's weekly "Items For Your Information" report in part because the city struggles to keep up with the massive amount and size of requests from people (myself included).
Leone ran at-large for Greensboro City Council in 2011. Read more about Leone's candid candidacy, Seymour and Wilkins in tomorrow's YES! Weekly.
