RNC is a high-risk event; don’t host it
Under normal circumstances Charlotte should welcome a national political convention. Unfortunately, we are not in normal circumstances.
I don’t think “inclusive dialogue” will be on the minds of many of the demonstrators on either side of the issues.
I would remind City Council of the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago and the unforgettable civic discord that accompanied it. Perhaps that would explain why most major cities opted out of hosting this particular convention.
Charlotte does not need to take on such a potentially high risk event.
