Don’t want to hear anything about Republican President Donald Trump from folk in Edgecombe County if you ain’t gonna talk about Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Chair of Edgecombe County Democratic Party.
Someone forwarded me the following list said it came from 2014. Now if all of the names are not correct then I bet atleast 1 name in the precinct is still a chair. Most of the time the list do not change unless someone no longer reside in the precinct for whatever reason. What is needed here is how many votes each precinct has and Rev. Roosevelt Higgs has the numbers. Those numbers do not change just because the chair’s name change. The secretary should have the same files that the chair has. However all of the county officers ought to have the same information because if something was to happen to the chair the vice chairs down to the treasurer can preside over the meetings.
Viola is no longer the county party secretary resigned and now Dr. Glenda Knight is the secretary.
All registered Democrats that reside in Precinct 11-1 are invited to attend and to participate in the meeting.

This is the information that was sent out by the county party however I am reading the copy that was handed to me by the party secretary Dr. Glenda L. Knight during the Sheriff Forum on last Thursday. I was going to make the announcement however the outgoing chair of the Democratic Women of Edgecombe County made the announcement during her closing out of the forum.
All Edgecombe County Democratic Party Annual Meetings are scheduled for Wednesday February 22, 2017. Make up dates are any dates between February 23 and March 8, 2017.
Meetings are free and open to any registered Democrat residing in the precinct.
For more information, please contact your Democratic Party Chair or the Rev. Dr. Roosevelt Higgs, County Chair at 252-907-8311.
Higgs left me a voicemail trying to intimidate me to have my meeting on February 22 so anyone listening to that clown who yes is a Rev. but not a Dr. if you need more information you need to contact me the chair of the precinct 11-1 at (252) 314-5484.
Precinct 11-1 Precinct Meeting will be held on Tuesday February 28 6:00 PM Lewis Fire Department the day that our fine Sheriff James Knight official retirement.
The candidates who are seeking the appointment of Sheriff has not been able to get the official voting strength per the precincts because some precincts have more votes than others. So at the moment the party chair and the county 6 officers ought to be able to provide that information especially the secretary.
Higgs is playing upon folk intelligence as if the party could not meet between March 1 – 6 to be able to give a name to the Edgecombe County Commissioners so we could have an appointed Sheriff just days after Sheriff Knight retirement becomes effective. But nope Higgs want to keep confusion by holding off.
There is no such thing as we have to wait until after all the precincts have met by March 8. The last time I checked March 6 do not come after March 8 so if any precinct is not organized they could get organized before or by March 6 so they could vote. No precinct that is organized will be considered unorganized unless they do not meet before March 8.
It never seems to amaze me how Democrats allow Higgs to play them. I challenge his ass every meeting and make statements so that those in the room can see just what is going on. But he got them fooled.
The county 6 officers which consist of Higgs, 1st, 2nd, 3rd vice chairs, secretary and treasurer can meet and act whenever the entire county executive committee is not in session. But the 6 county officers are just that. If they were about what is good for the county they would not allow Higgs to call the shots. The last time I checked 5 is more than 1 but I know who we are working with.
The Good Democrats of Edgecombe County along with Democrats that represent the citizens of Edgecombe County on the State and National levels should all be requesting that Rev. Roosevelt Higgs resign his post as the Democratic Party Chair effective immediately.
The following are messages that Higgs left on my voicemail. Sad! But he knows he don’t intimidate me.
It is funny how my posts keep getting removed but you allow your white friends to post untrues and ignant information on the forum.
Sir you can not silence me from making sure folk are educated on issues in Edgecombe County.
Folk ya’ll better wake up and see how folk you patronage want to keep you ignant to what is going on around you.
I have posted several posts that meet the guidelines but have been removed but look at how he allows certain folk to attempt to mislead and manipulate the process of the Sheriff Office Appointment. There have been several post about the Edgecombe County Sheriff Appointment that Republicans have posted about the process when they don’t have a damn thing to do with what the Democratic Party process for appointing a Sheriff.
And don’t even mention how he allows them ignants to come after me trying to discredit me but you see I can handle them. And when I get the best of them they remove their posts. I love it!
Click on the photo to hear this powerful message coming from Clee Atkinson during Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at Salem Chapel MBC Leggett NC.
The DCN News Blog Online TV proudly endorses State Trooper Clee Atkinson to be appointed to Sheriff of Edgecombe County.
I first learned of Clee Atkinson NC State Patrol Officer several years ago when I seen him on the news and in the Rocky Mount Telegram as he and a couple of other black males from the Rocky Mount Police Department were helping coach at Rocky Mount Senior High trying to be involved with developing young males in school. A white coach made some derogatory comments to some black males playing sports and Clee and the other coaches stood up and called him out.
The first time I met Atkinson was I seen him refereeing football games years ago. I watched this guy on the football field how professionally he carried himself. I watched how he interacted with the young men on the field.
Several years ago I seen Clee at Abrams in Pinetops where he and other law enforcement officers frequently stops to eat because Mrs. Barber the manager there has been a great friend to the law enforcement.
Clee has been following me on social media and seeing me in meetings for years he said and he has always told me when he seen me that he appreciated what I was doing especially being an advocate for children. He has invited me to some meetings that he have at his church on Saturday mornings monthly however my schedule has not allowed me to attend over the years. I know some brothers who have attended and I have not heard anything but how successful the meetings have been.
I have also had the opportunity to hear Clee speak publicly several times. I have videoed him speaking and his speech can be found on my Youtube page.
Over a year ago Clee contacted me and said that he was interested in seeking the office of Sheriff if and whenever Sheriff James Knight would retire. He said but no way would he run against him. He said just think about it and if and when the time come I will get back with you. You see this brother is smart because as I stated he said he has been following me on social media and seeing me at meetings speaking out. He know I have asked that anyone who want to represent me and the people of Edgecombe County that they need to contact me because I will be holding them accountable for their actions.
Clee has worked for the past several years for former Governor Pat McCrory (Republican) and now he is working with now Governor Roy Cooper (Democrat). This speaks volume. This means that Clee will do the right thing by representing all the people. Clee is a Democrat but I bet McCrory will say he was very professional as it related to his job duties and making him feel safe while holding the office of Governor. In the short time that Cooper has been in office I bet he feel safe and will say that Clee is professional as well.
I am not going to go into Clee’s bio however I ask that you do your own homework and/or if you want to see his bio you can go to my blog and/or you may contact me. However invite him to your communities to see and hear him for yourself.
Clee brings a wealth of knowledge and resources to the table as it relates to law enforcement and POLITICS. He has a great relationship with neighboring county Sheriffs and some highly respected businessmen in the county along with many citizens in the county.
I love supporting folk younger than I. I am 54 years old and I think Clee is in his early 40’s. He is at a seasoned age and time in his professional. For me Clee brings a and also most importantly in the grey and black. So although he has not worked with the Sheriff Office directly he has indirectly because he has worked with Sheriff Knight and know the man
As I listened to Clee during the Sheriff Forum on last Thursday he furthered assured me he is the one.
I feel strongly that Edgecombe County need a young seasoned person who can relate to the young and the older folk.
So knowing what I know and after the forum on Thursday, The DCN News Blog Online TV endorses Cleveland (Clee) Atkinson.

I have been in too many meetings and held too many conversations with this guy to know that he keeps mess stirred up and folk pay to read his paper? Really? I wish I would promote someone by spending my money on a product that works against me.
Van can be found on Tarboro 27886 Facebook page posting a bunch of untrues. When I call him out he gets mad as hell but if you follow him he will end up responding showing that I was correct because he goes back and try to change his wording. I will not allow the Vans of Edgecombe County to promote untrues and to mislead the folk.
When Van was working at former newspaper that I didn’t subscribe to either, his articles were very bias. And the sad part is the owners were black but since they couldn’t get anyone to work for them, they had no choice but to let Van be their man. But then finally the bond ended and so Van says he is the owner of the Tar River Times.
At the last Princeville meeting Van made a comment in my presence about the Sheriff Appointment. He said that guy Clee Atkinson need to watch who he hangs out with. I said who is that? He said Steve Wadsworth. I said really? Steve is a white male and a very successful businessman and one who has done much for the community. I said why is that an issue? He really couldn’t say much more.
How can an owner of a newspaper show bias when he should expect the whole community to support him? Why would Atkinson and others whom I know of Van has worked against should feel comfortable seeking an ad in the paper and/or just during an interview with him.
Why would the community want to support a paper that is not going to be fair in reporting and also out in public bad mouthing folk? I refuse to subscribe to the paper and never will.
Ok so you don’t get it twisted there is a difference in what Van does and what I do. I am the founder and owner of The DCN News Blog Online TV. I operate out of pocket. I report the whole news because I video the meetings and put my spin on what happened. But the best part is I post the video so I can be challenged and can be called me out if you disagree with my spin. Folk may not agree with me but one damn thing about it, I operate on the facts. I do my homework. However I stand to be corrected and have no problem with retracting, apologizing or just getting something right if need to.
Because I have challenged Van as it relates to the Tarboro Town Council meetings, the Sheriff Appointment and other he has called me a racist. Well Van one damn thing about it you can’t call me sleep and not afraid to challenge you. I know a hell of lot more than you think I do!
