We are getting help from the Russians in our online public notice arguments:
A cyber attack slowed county government to a crawl Wednesday in North Carolina’s most populous metro area as deputies processed jail inmates by hand, the tax office turned away electronic payments and building code inspectors switched to paper records.
More good news on our battles:
The newly installed Guilford County commission voted last night 5-4 to postpone the decision to move notices online. The new Republican chair voted with the Dems to delay and was the deciding vote. They will meet again January 4th.
