More info needed on property ownership

Forsyth County News

 

It was nice that Commissioner Amos excused himself from the 1-cent sales tax project list vote, but the fact that his wife is part of a trust that will be selling some of the land needed for the new courthouse should require further clarification or investigation.

Was this property purchased with insider information that the new courthouse would one day need the land? You hear of deals like this that enrich the pockets of politicians and Mr. Amos should want to assure the taxpayers of Forsyth County that this was not one of those good old boy deals. If this deal does happen, it will be interesting to see what the county pays for this land.
