Mayoral candidate that blasted competitors for being too cozy with developers is now, as Mayor, calling for more flexibility with environmental compliance for developers; Charlotte, NC

Mayor Foxx reaches out to developers - CharlotteObserver.com: "In the final weeks of Anthony Foxx's campaign for Charlotte mayor last fall, Foxx attacked his opponent, John Lassiter, for being too cozy with developers. The state Democratic Party produced a piece of campaign mail that said Lassiter sided with developers, 'hanging homeowners out to dry.'
After three months as mayor, Foxx has softened his message - a shift that has concerned some supporters.
In a March 1 City Council meeting, he said he's heard 'horror stories' from developers about dealing with city regulations, and urged staff to have some flexibility."
