Mayor and City Manager Issue Statement About ICRCM/Duke Energy Dispute

GREENSBORO, NC (May 11, 2017) – Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan and City Manager Jim Westmoreland have issued the following statement about the International Civil Rights Center and Museum (ICRCM) billing dispute with Duke Energy.

“The City of Greensboro has been and remains a significant funder and supporter of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum. We view the current billing dispute between the Museum and Duke Energy as a private matter. Any allegations or statements made by Museum officials regarding the City’s involvement in this matter, or interest in the Museum, are completely baseless and very disappointing.”
