Remember Edgecombe County had local representation on the NC Local Government Commission (LGC) when Princeville was in the news. But now that the Town of Tarboro is in the news there is no local representation. Damn County Commissioner and former LGC member Viola Harris would have probably made history being able to serve on the LGC with 2 locals being investigated within a 2 year time frame. Viola live in Tarboro city and about 1 mile out of Princeville.
Oh but my point is that when the Republicans took office Democrats in certain board and commissions that are appointed were replaced. So goes to show you what power a particular party has when they have the majority.
