Butterfield to Focus Week in District on Economic Development, Healthcare, and Education

WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) will travel throughout North Carolina’s First Congressional District to participate in a groundbreaking, highlight healthcare initiatives, and encourage educational achievement within the region.

On Tuesday, Butterfield will attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility of Ahoskie Fire Department.  The site’s construction was funded in part by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  The Congressman will later travel to Jackson to celebrate the expansion of the Nurse-Family Partnership into four northeastern counties.  The Partnership will provide first-time, income-restricted parents with skills and resources to improve child developmental health, well-being, and self-sufficiency.

On Wednesday, Butterfield will join local seniors at a roundtable discussion on the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and prescription drug coverage.  Butterfield will use the latter portion of the day to take part in a virtual tour of the new solar panel project at Warren County High School.

The Congressman’s week concludes with an open house celebration of a newly erected residential complex on the campus of Chowan University.

Butterfield’s full public schedule follows.

Princeville’s financial hole just gets deeper – Daily Southerner This Story Continues To Get Gooder And Gooder (LOL!)

Response: Now this is interesting: “The letter did not mention individual names, however, the town’s recent audit report noted that Everette-Oates made 133 charges on a town credit card that totaled $5,929 in which there was no supporting documentation.” So do the Mayor think she is exempt from the rules? On top of her salary for Mayor that she receives from the town she used the credit card? But if she did why was it not documented? But she didn’t want to pay Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight her salary as a commissioner. Damn! I posted the entire August 7 letter 2 days ago, “Princeville NC – LGC Findings July 31, 2012 Cash Balance And Town’s Credit Cards Are The Major Concerns.”
