Hurricane Matthews: Princeville NC – "Princevilles’ Destiny-To Whom is It To Decide?" by Commissioner Milton Bullock Ward 1 Princeville NC

Response: I totally agree sir with this as it relates to Princeville and all surrounding areas. It should be the people as a whole who make the decision. You are correct the last time the people were not allowed to speak during the meeting held at Edgecombe Community College and that is why the people voted former Mayor Delia Perkins out because she silenced the citizens. Hell all they wanted to do was to voice their opinion and then the council could have voted. But damn let the people have a voice. I hope today’s meeting be different than last time. Trust me not saying let everyone speak but atleast allow a certain amount of time for public comment verses no comments. Just my ignant opinion. I have some more to say but I have learned that I need to wait sometimes to see what other folk have to say because my comments will/can influence how folk respond to situations which is not a bad thing. But I don’t want someone to agree with me just because it sound good however I will base my opinion on facts.

“Princevilles’ Destiny-To Whom is It To Decide?”

This is apparently the tentative opinion of a ‘Lone Ranger’ regarding the future as compared with the past of Princeville’ s flooding history and its unpredictable future. And rightly so as a concern civic Servant.

It is far too soon to be presuming  the destiny of the Town of Princeville-  as indicated by NC Gov. Pat McCrory and current Town Manager Gerald and Mayor Bobbie Jones.  The preconceived notion of ‘Rebuilding Princeville’ is noble as well as a highly commendable idea and should be good news to everybody who was effected.  Yet must be ever so careful as a hurting community during this travesty, not to be hasty in our presumptive decision making.

But let’s not rush to judgment before genuine dialogue has been entertain by the citizens of Princeville.  As it should be their collective decision after hearing from the Federal official agencies of the pros and con’s prior to making a random decision.

Such hast actions during 1999 Hurricane Floyd puts where we today, ignoring the people’s collective thoughts and opinions relatively to F.E.M.A.’s offer to buyout and relocate the community.

I’m suggesting that during this natural disaster (Hurricane Matthew),…we be more sensitive to the genuine concerns and desires of the people to whom we as {sworn-elected officials} choose to serve to the best of our capabilities. The final analysis should be the will / choice the of the people, by the people.
