Barber Gets Time Off To Attend City Council Meeting

Greensboro, NC-- Greensboro City Councilman
Mike Barber, shown wearing his County issued orange jump suit, was recently given time off to attend a Greensboro City Council meeting where the at large councilman argued in favor of placing known child molesters in residential neighborhoods.

At-large Councilman Mike Barber, who also is running for reelection, said Friday that the Interactive Resource Center, an agency that houses at least 6 registered offenders "needs to be relocated away from the children's museum and the library" because of the presence of sex offenders.

The ideal new spot, he said, would be on Maple Street, near the Guilford County Social Services building and one of the Greensboro Police Department's substations."

Neither Councilman Barber nor Greensboro City Attorney Thomas Carruthers replied to questions as to what charges Councilman Barber is facing or how long he will remain an inmate in the Guilford County Jail.
