Lige Daughtridge said he doesn’t see the need for a study dubbed the Diversity Plan – which is designed to analyze the diversity of the city’s workforce. He also expressed his desire for the council to have a public hearing regarding plans for an event center in downtown Rocky Mount. Daugtridge serves as the president of The Community Council for Nash, Edgecombe & Rocky Mount, a group that members are raising questions about whether the center would be a sound investment of tax dollars.
