Congress takes a stand and honors Tarboro – Source: Rocky Mount Telegram

Just to show we’re not afraid of controversy, the Telegram today would like to congratulate the town of Tarboro for marking its 250th anniversary.

That might not sound like a stretch, but believe it or not, a simple bill acknowledging the milestone raised some eyebrows in Congress this month.

The U.S. House has nothing against the town itself, so far as we know, but Republicans poised to take a majority of seats in January have called into question Congress’ age-old practice of honoring, recognizing, congratulating and applauding various towns, civic clubs, tasty vegetables and other nominees of distinction.

Princeville NC: So What Is It Going To Take To Really Get Princeville Headed In The Right Direction? (Hell Yeah I Said It, Now What?)

It is sad but the only thing that is going to save Princeville is some criminal charges will have to take place. It does not take a rocket scientist to see that there are some criminal activities going on within the town governmental agency.

The citizens need to understand that although some of them may be family, friends and/or whatever to some of the commissioners that as long a they remain silent they are going to continue to suffer and not receive all the real benefits that they should be receiving from their governmental agency.

I challenge the citizens to contact the mayor and request an emergency meeting now to share what business has taken place such as signing of documents and etc. since this board has been in office.

I don’t know what bothers me the most, the criminal activity that is being done or the silence of the citizens. You see it should not be Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight who the mayor is trying to silence but the citizens ought to be outraged. The citizens should be at every meeting raising hell.

Oh well who am I? I am a concerned Edgecombe County Citizen and Princeville NC just happens to be in Edgecombe County.

Hell yeah I said it, now what?

Breaking News: Princeville NC – Town Manager Victor Marrow Has Resigned Effective Today (Hell Yeah I Said It, Now What?)

Princeville Town manager Victor Marrow has resigned effective today Monday, November 29, 2010. Sources say he has had enough of the ongoing disputes working with Mayor Priscilla Everett-Oates, Commissioner Calvin Sherrod and Commissioner Isabelle Purvis-Andrews. I understand that a series of incidents happened over the weekend in Princeville related to the mayor.

Sources also question why the mayor requested she and the commissioners met in Greenville with the auditors instead of allowing the auditors to come to Princeville. I understand there is atleast one person on the payroll illegally among other things.

Sources say the town clerk had cut a check to pay Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight for checks that have been withheld after the magistrate ordered that Knight be paid on Wednesday, November 24, 2010.

I commend Commissioner Knight for asking all the right questions at the town meetings about the business of the town. Commissioner Ann Howell has done the same and when she was silenced by the mayor then she attempted to silence Knight by holding her check. Obviously Howell and Knight don’t get it that this is Priscilla-ville and not Princeville so they can’t talk. The mayor removed the commissioner’s comments from the agenda so she is the only one who can run the show. Well damn Mayor Everett-Oates is one of the few mayors who gets to vote nearly every meeting because you can count on Commissioners Sherrod and Purvis-Andrews voting against anything Commissioners Howell and Knight votes for.

Now this is what I am talking about, the manager Victor Marrow has taken a stand and we must take a stand when we see things are not going right. I was beginning to question how can this brother who is a minister continue to go along with the mayor’s mess. But then I also question how does the mayor continue to do her mess and she is a minister? Oh well.

Again I call on the citizens of Princeville to take a stand and demand justice. It is past-time that the citizens need to go to the meetings and ask the mayor and her cronies along with the ignant attorney Chuck Watts to resign also.

Enough is enough.

Hell yeah I said it, now what?

Jeanne Massey: Give ranked voting more of a chance–Source: Star Tribune

One dull election proves nothing (though it was procedurally sound).

I’m struggling to discern the point of the Nov. 21 article "New voting is not as simple as 1-2-3."

Was it that ranked-choice voting (RCV) failed to revolutionize electoral politics in one under-the-radar election last year in Minneapolis? That’s not news — especially to those working hard to put Minnesota at the forefront of electoral reform. (Read more)
