Monday, August 5, 2013 Could Use Some Updates

It’s unclear who was responsible to update the bio page for new District 1 City Council Representative Billy Dal Maddalon, but when Citynewswatch went to check it out and update Council Contact Information for this site, something stood out.  It was on the page as of 8/5/2013.  See if you spot the error, shown in bright red.  Someone’s face in the government center may also be bright red.  Here is the full link:

Charlotte > City Council > Meet the Council > District 1 Billy Maddalon

Billy Dal Maddalon, District 1 Representative
Billy Dal Maddalon, a Democrat, represents District 1 on Charlotte City Council. He was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Patsy Kinsey after she was selected to replace Mayor Patrick McCrory following his election as Governor. 

Maddalon has been active in community organizations, serving on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the Charlotte Convention and Visitors Bureau from 1999 to 2004 and the Board of Directors of the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority and Chair of its Strategic Planning Committee from 2004 to 2005. He was the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce 1998 Entrepreneur of the Year, one of the Charlotte Business Journal’s “40 under 40” most influential persons in Charlotte, and the Impact Fund, Class of 2000, of the Foundation For The Carolinas. He has also served on the Central Carolinas Voices and Choices Environmental Coalition’s land use action team and the Board of Visitors and the Board of Directors of the Alexander Youth Network. He was a member of the North Carolina State University Foundation Board from 2006 to 2008, served on the Board of Advisors of the North Carolina State University College of Humanities from 1998 to 2004 and as its president from 2004 to 2005. He was President of the North Carolina State Alumni Association from 2006 to 2008.

He received bachelors’ degrees in political science and public relations from North Carolina State University.

Maddalon is founder and managing owner of Unique Southern Estates, a boutique hospitality company that operates The Morehead Inn/Van Landingham Estate/Good Gracious Events.  

Maddalon lives in Charlotte.

Editorial Note:  While Governor McCrory did move on from Mayor of Charlotte, that was several years ago and is unrelated to the appointment of Kinsey.  The bio should reflect that Mayor Anthony Foxx left his position to be appointed Secretary of Transportation.  After that vacancy developed, now-Mayor Kinsey was appointed to her current position. 
No contact information is given yet for Maddalon, but Citynewswatch will continue to look for an update.


City Council Minutes are still not up to date.  They are just over two months delayed with random missing meetings prior to those two months.  This is an improvement to the four or more months’ consistent backlog which stood a long time, but still not acceptable.
