Breaking News – Edgecombe County Public Schools Voted Again 3 For Rev. Roy A. Gray And 3 For Thomas Wayne Edison, Here We Go Again

It is sad that the board continues to vote along racial lines I would think however I don’t know that to be true and just a guess. There are only 2 black votes to 4 white votes so therefore 1 white person did the right thing assuming that the 2 blacks both voted for Rev. Roy A. Gray.

Next on the agenda it was time to vote for the board chair and vice chair. Evelyn Wilson current chair made a speech that she was going to give the chair position to Ann Kent current vice chair so the nick picking games can be cut out and it will not have to be displayed for the chair position. Wilson asked the other board members to just vote for Kent. You must see the video to get the full effect of Wilson’s speech. It was so juicy that I don’t know where to begin to talk about it.

After the election of the board chair Ann Kent was elected with 6 votes and Attorney Janice Davidson received 1 vote. Evelyn Wilson was elected as vice chair with 4 votes, Attorney Teresa D. Bryant received 1 vote, Dr. Evelyn Johnson received 1 vote and Attorney Janice Davidson received 1 vote.

The agenda was approved with items added and one being Attorney Teresa D. Bryant asking to be placed on the agenda as a item to rescind her resignation to be voted on later.

Well there you have folks. The board did just what I expected them to do tonight. All those who voted for Edison is just crazy as hell because he campaigned on reducing class sizes. He didn’t answer the questions at the June meeting when they interviewed him. Damn what world is he living in and those board members that supported him?

After tonight I don’t know where this school board is going? I thought I could kind of follow them but now I don’t know. But what I do know I am going to continue to attend the meetings to see where the hell they are going. I do know they want the board to be a 5 – 2 white majority when the district is a black majority.

Dr. Johnson asked the board when were they going to come together as one because they don’t discuss anything and just vote and that was not right.

  1. Brother Dancy, I was not surprised at the outcome tonight at the Board meeting. It turned out just as I expected; however, Attorney Bryant did please me by rescinding her resignation until the end of the term. Based on tonight’s outcome, that was the best thing that could have taken place. Mrs.Johnson’s revelation of how she perceives the world around her was nothing but an act of grandstanding. Dr. Johnson,on the other hand, really put things into proper perspective as she indicated clearly that she was not satisfied with the way business was conducted by that throng of educational leaders. It will be interesting to see if her words have any impact on future Board proceedings.

    Note: Dr. Johnson was validated when the lady that was hired to do the 3 year thing came behind her and echoed what she said. I totally agree with Dr. Johnson’s comments. As it relates to her comments making an impact, I think that it made an impact tonight if it goes no further.

    Like I said I don’t know where the hell this board is going but I am going to continue to follow them.

    Also I am trying to figure out where the other Evelyn is coming from. I don’t think that tonight was a good time to just give up the chair position but then again I don’t know. With her comments it is my opinion she gave them what they wanted and maybe that is a good thing. Curmilus Dancy II – DCN Publisher
