Friends Really?

My definition of a friend is one that will be willing to tell me when they agree and/or support me when they know I am doing something that I request their support. I do not need a friend who will agree with me just because we are friends and not being able to tell me that I don’t think what you are doing is a good thing.

I will tell my friends just how I feel and if they have a problem with that then so be it. I would rather have them to be mad with me because I tried to tell them instead of not letting them know how I feel. When we don’t let our friends know how we feel sometimes they may make some bad choices. If we say nothing, then we are somewhat responsible for the choice they made.

So do you have friends according to my definition and are you one that is willing to tell your friend that you can’t agree and/or support them on that issue?

Edgecombe County Who Am I? I Tell My Story And Don’t Wait For Others

In the black community folk have had this thing that if you talk about the things you do you are boasting, bragging or what the hell ever. Well if you don’t tell your story, your story may go untold or someone may just tell it when you are laid out during remarks time. Well they may tell it then but they gonna know it before then.

I have earned my rights when it comes to politics. I have done my homework and most of all educated myself by going places and getting to know the players. I know all the players locally, numerous statewide and many on the national. I am well known across the state and somewhat worldwide but that ain’t important. What I have to offer is what is important. What do you have to offer?

I know what I have done over the years and much of it has been in the background. I have done things and folk never even knew what role I have played. I don’t think no one in Edgecombe County is as passionate about our politics than I from a public standpoint. There may be some who are just as passionate but they do not show it publicly so that can be questionable and debatable. There is nothing to question or to debate when it comes to where I stand.

I am proud to be able to say I have supported some good folk as it relates to electing folk to make decisions for the folk of Edgecombe County. I have and strongly support black, brown, white and other who represent my folk of Edgecombe County but not limited to. You see it does not bother me because some folk  don’t like me, I love them anyway because I am going to fight for them anyway.

My point is folk you can like me or not, I don’t give a damn! I am going to do what I was put here to do and that is to be a voice for the voiceless. To support my brothers and sisters who want to be elected to help make Edgecombe County a better place to live. But they know that I will hold them accountable for their actions because you will not hurt my folk without me coming after you. So do right and I will do right about you.

I am who I am! I don’t play when it comes to folk making decisions that affect other folk lives. I am for truth no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest! I can be your best friend or your worst nightmare.

I tell folk all the time if you want to represent me and my folk in Edgecombe County you better talk to me because I will voice my opinion. I will do my homework on you and I will share it.

Just a couple of days ago we the Democratic Party Executive Committee appointed Clee Atkinson as Sheriff of Edgecombe County to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight that ends 2018. I was there when we appointed Knight and I have been there for many others. So if you don’t think I am passionate and dedicated, you better do your homework.

I am pleased with the outcome of the Sheriff appointment and most of all my heart is heavy because talking to the white community throughout the Sheriff Appointment Process, I am pleased to know that the white community supported Clee. I remember when I first joined the Democratic Party Executive Committee back in the early 90’s there was a power struggle and much race relation issues. But today I am proud to say we have come a long ways. I look forward to us moving forward getting better and better. Sheriff Knight can be given much credit for bringing us together as a race and I say thank you. I see Sheriff Clee doing the same.

I have been misunderstood many times but I strongly feel that is because folk don’t know how to take me. I am not a scared black man. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I say publicly what others say behind closed doors. I say things because they need to be said and I have seen great results after doing so. I may take some heat but I can stand the fire.

What tickles me the most is that I have been called a militant by black folks and a racist by white folk. Militant because I say what they are scared to say and because they think what I say is going to cause a disturbance but I have seen the results and they have been great. Because of what I say it creates dialogue and that is what is needed.

Called a racist. Wow! But if you look at my track record, look at the newspaper and especially my blog/social media sites, you will see that I hold my black folk accountable for their actions. I have spent my time over the years calling out more black folk who I had issues with than I have white folk. So when they call me a racist I just laugh because I know what I do and what I do will benefit all folk.

Keep on listening to those folk who speak negative of me and you may just miss your blessing.

Edgecombe County black, brown, white and other I love all of you and it ain’t nothing you can do about it.

I am Curmilus Dancy II (Butch) The Watch Dog of the East, The Political Agitator and trust me I am a professional because I know how to agitate so I can bring out the best in folk.

Photos/Video: State Trooper Clee Atkinson Appointed Sheriff Of Edgecombe County

imageEdgecombe County has a new Sheriff in town. Clee Atkinson will serve out the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight until the election in 2018. The Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners will make the appointment official on Monday April 3 during their regular monthly meeting at 7:00 PM. However I wish the commissioners would call a special meeting just to do the appointment because time is crucial.

 The DCN News Blog Online TV congratulate Sheriff Clee Atkinson and his wife Kim as they enter into the political arena. The Sheriff position is about law enforcement but it is also political so Clee don’t get it twisted. You may not want to be a politician but it comes with the territory so continue to roll up your sleeves and get the getting. Actually you got it right anyway when you campaigned on economics and other because it is all politics and goes hand in hand. I am excited about the experience and the wealth of knowledge and resources you will bring to Edgecombe County. As you have stated on your campaign journey, “Help is on the way!” Well Larry Woodley got it right last night during his speech as a candidate after following your speech when he said, “Help is already here!”

Edgecombe County Sheriff Appointment Today

Today is the day that we come together as the Edgecombe County Executive Committee to vote on a candidate to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight. However we need to come together as a party.

What I hope folk learn from this situation is that this is why we need a strong Democratic Party Chair and working county officers so that the party can function effectively. The county Democrats need to be aware of what is going on locally, statewide and nationally weekly. There must be an effective means of communication via emails and regular meetings. We need a Democratic Party Headquarters. We need some dedicated workers.

Because we don’t have a Democratic Party that is effective, we had no communication about what was and is going on locally, statewide and nationally with all that is going on with the Republicans being in control. We need our local Democratic Party to be at its very best so we can move forward. This is an election year also for new county officers so keep that in mind during the election at our upcoming County Convention.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Sheriff James Knight announced his retirement if there had been an effective Democratic Party Chair he/she would have talked to him and told him that the timing of his retirement becoming effective was going to be during a bad time since this was the year to elect precinct officers. If I had been the chair I would have asked the Sheriff to wait until the middle of March or the end of March to make his retirement official.

Photos/Videos – Edgecombe County Sheriff Forum Hosted By Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission

image

Clee Atkinson – Endorsed by The DCN News Blog Online TV

The Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission hosted a Sheriff Forum on Thursday March 9, 2017 at the Edgecombe Community College Campus Rocky Mount NC. This was the 2nd forum that has been held with the 1st one being hosted by the Democratic Women of Edgecombe County in February in Tarboro at the Edgecombe County Administration Building Auditorium. When I asked the Democratic Women to host a forum to present the candidates I also asked them to contact the Human Relations Commission to co-sponsor but they didn’t co-sponsor.

The problem I have had with the current Democratic Party County Officers is that they have not had anything absolutely nothing to educate the Democrats under the leadership of Rev. Roosevelt Higgs and his other 5 county officers. The Democratic Women has been hosting successful events and if it had not been for them there would have not been any Democratic activities since the group was formed recently under the leadership of Melanie Goff Bradley the outgoing chair.

The Human Relations Commission has been hosting a candidates forum over the years but the Democratic Party should have been the one hosting one. Interesting Rev. Roosevelt Higgs is the vice chair of the Human Relations Commission abd chair of the Democratic Party.

Former Detective Larry Woodley the folk I have talked to says he seems to be very arrogant and has not impressed them one bit. I totally agree because I know him. Does it not seem strange that their former boss Sheriff James Knight is not publicly supporting Chief Allen Moseley and Captain Richard Allen. State Trooper Clee Atkinson the people say he has been very impressive and I totally agree.

It appears this forum was to target Clee Atkinson because there were a few questions that singled him out and not the other candidates. I didn’t go to ask any questions but after I heard the current Sheriffs talk about what they were doing since the Sheriff Office became vacant on Wednesday talking about implementing this and that and meeting with folk like Princeville about a citizens watch, I couldn’t take it. To me this is unprofessional and poor leadership because damn you don’t need to be focused on anything but running the day to day operations until March 23rd when the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee meet. Right now these guys are focusing on the wrong thing while the Sheriff Office staff is concerned and waiting patiently to find out who will be chosen to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight

Watch the videos for yourself and you gone learn the day! Don’t take my word. Folk what you need to keep in mind is that this appointment ain’t about me just because I am vocal and reporting the facts not the alternative facts.

One thing that tickled the hell out of me was the question to Clee Atkinson about Sheriff Keith Stone name being called it was not Clee who called Sheriff Stone name it was Chief Allen Moseley. But was a 2 part question ask him what would he do about gangs. He had already answered that question several times. SMDH!

All voting members make sure you watch the Appointment Process that was presented by Senator Don Davis 1st Congressional District Chair because he explains what is going on now and what will take place on March 23.

Appointment Process For Edgecombe County Sheriff 2017

Clee Atkinson Has Ties To Pinetops

Cleveland “Clee” Atkinson Jr. for Edgecombe County Sheriff hosted by the Michael’s Angels Girls Club on Monday night was very informative. Clee is a State Patrol and is serving on detail for Governor Roy Cooper and recently worked on detail for former Governor Pat McCrory. Clee’s mom came up to me after the meeting and shared with me Clee’s ties to Pinetops.

Clee’s mother Carrie Jenkins Langley was from Pinetops and now lives in Wilson. Clee’s grandmother Gladys Walston Jenkins and grandfather William Jasper Jenkins nickname Doodley were from Pinetops. Clee’s great grandma is Carrie Taylor Jenkins, great granddad William Gilbert Jenkins, great great grandma Cora Hill Walston and great great granddad is Mercer Walston were formerly of Pinetops. Clee has numerous family members who reside in Edgecombe County and you know them but didn’t know that you did. I am learning everyday who some of his family is.

I had heard that folk were saying Clee was not from Edgecombe County. One of the qualifications for being Sheriff of Edgecombe County one would have to be a resident of Edgecombe County. Since he lives in Meadowbrook in Rocky Mount on the Edgecombe Side that validates he live in our county.

I am so proud of this young man seeking the Sheriff Appointment because he is qualified, experienced, capable and willing to be the people’s Sheriff. He has a wealth of law enforcement knowledge via professional training and from a street standpoint so therefore he can relate to all folk young and old. He brings a wealth of resources and integrity along with him.

The DCN News Blog Online TV proudly endorsed Clee Atkinson after the Democratic Women of Edgecombe County Sheriff Forum in February. However I had already made my mind up because I had done my homework on him. I have not heard nothing negative about him.

Get to know the man and/or talk to someone that do. You will be glad that you did!

 

Ignant ass Van Holland You Gonna Learn The Day!

You posted this on your personal page but you can read mines because it is public. But I post on your paper tar River Times and Tarboro 27886 so you can read it.

Now since you continue to let Higgs make an ass out of you, I am going to validate your title.

In re:

Van Holland

13 hrs ·

I know this post may piss someone or several people off, but I’m at the point of not really giving two toots because facts are facts and they don’t lie.

All of these Youtube videos where voicemails have been left to Precinct 11-1 Democratic chair Curmilus Dancy by Democratic Party Chair Roosevelt Higgs, have gone public now in black and white in newspaper articles.

Me: Was already Public on my page so how ignant.

First off, I could’ve gone deeper into detail in my article about facts I know to be TRUE about Curmilus Dancy and you can call me ignant all you want, but when I speak the truth that’s all I need.

Me: Ignant dig deep and post everything you can about me because it will further validate how ignant you really are.

First off let me say, when you tell everyone you have a voice and a vote for the next Sheriff of Edgecombe County, that saddens me because someone like you Curmilus don’t need a vote because you’re racist and try and start trouble everywhere you go, especially with a white person.

Me: How ignant! The last time checked Higgs was just as black as me.

Everything you talk about on your blog you make it a racial issue and about color or ignorance or as you say ignant.

Me: Ignant I write about whatever the hell I want to on my blog. I don’t have any control over how folk receive it. I say what I mean and mean what I say.

Curmilus you go around calling everyone ignorant and then you say in a Youtube video to Roosevelt Higgs and reference ignorant white people and ignorant safe Negros.

Me: I have been doing this for years because this means I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I have explained this numerous of times.

Why is the word SAFE in front of Negros?

Is it because you don’t want any backlash to hit you? Or is it because he called you a vagina and you don’t want anyone knowing the truth.

Me: I know you didn’t just question me about words I say. I don’t seek validation on the words I say.

Let me just refresh your memory on something that I know IS ALL TRUTH.

You had a problem with a former SouthWest Edgecombe HS principal one time and I believe if I am correct, he told you that y’all could settle it in his office or in a cornfield he didn’t care and it was up to you.

Me: Ignant you begin by saying you know it be truth then you say if you are correct. Damn fool!

All of this started with your ignant comments towards this principal and until this day, I don’t think you’ve contacted that man to let him know where you wanted to settle it at. Nor did you call him ignant again.

Me: This was 1993 and the kids called me to the school because they had staged a walkout. Because I challenged him, he got pissed and said we could settle it in the cornfield. I walked out the door and said come on. He didn’t come. I learned that t cornfield term was a racial thing later after all of this.

Funny how I was never banned from the school because he was the one out of control. I was 1st vice president of the NAACP at that time.

The point I am trying to make, whether you are black or white, green or purple, orange or blue, it doesn’t matter that someone of color has a voice, but what you need to do is not boast or brag about it and call people out all because you think you own everyone.

Me: Boasting or bragging? Ignant what? I stated I had a voice and and vote for those that were in on the discussion that had neither.

Don’t get mad with me because I ain’t scared to talk to your ignant white and issues. I talk to good white folk daily.

Yes I know you support Clee Atkinson as the next Sheriff, and I have no problem with that, but when you support him, I wouldn’t think he would want you putting his name in a blog where you are calling people ignant white folk or ignant safe negros.

Me: You do have a problem with that because I challenged you when y said Clee need t watch the company he keep. I asked you who and you said Steve Wadsworth and issues white businessman. I challenged you to justify why Captain Moseley was the best candidate. You are white and Moseley is white I am black and so is Clee. I told your ignant ass I asked Sheriff Knight was Moseley going to seek the position and he said no. When I met with Moseley I told him that.

I hope this gets back to you so you can write about me in your blog, because if you think I care, you are sadly mistaken.

Now RUN TELL THAT with your ignant voice and vote.

Me: The difference between you and I is my blog and other social media pages a public. I also post on your Tar River Times page and the Tarboro 27886.

Please dig deeper and post more cause I got more.

SBCC Takes Action That Could Lessen Local College Autonomy

Despite efforts by the NC Association of Community College Trustees (NCACCT) and the Community College Presidents Association, along with others who spoke on the issues being discussed, the State Board voted today to push legislation that would, if passed, significantly reduce local autonomy that our colleges now have to govern the college and employ the president under the terms that best fit the needs of their college.  No one in attendance, other than State Board members, spoke positively about the proposed legislative action under consideration.
The three items they voted to send to the General Assembly as proposed legislation are:
1-To establish term limits for trustees for a maximum of two terms;
2- To require boards to meet at least once every two months per year;
3- To allow the State Board to take control of the local governance at a local college, under the conditions that the State Board has set.
Those who spoke in opposition stated that, if any of these items needed to be addressed, they  should be addressed by the stakeholders, including community college trustees and presidents.  Those who spoke expressed concern that once legislation is proposed, the trustees and presidents would have no control of what the final legislation would say, including action by the General Assembly that could cause further loss of local autonomy.
If any bill is introduced to address any of these items, we will contact you so you will be able to contact members of your legislative delegation and, hopefully, express your opinion regarding this legislation.

 

Cooper Names DA Robert Evans as GCC Chairman

The Watch Dog response: Congrats Mr. DA a well deserved appointment.

RALEIGH

Mar 2, 2017

Governor Roy Cooper today named District Attorney Robert A. Evans of the Seventh Judicial District as the new chairman of the Governor’s Crime Commission.

“District Attorney Evans will bring deep knowledge of the justice system and law enforcement along with even-handed judgment to guide the 44 members of the Crime Commission,” Cooper said. “I’m grateful that D.A. Evans is willing to take on this challenging and crucial role on behalf of our state.”

Evans has been the district attorney for Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties since 2009.  He served as a District Court judge from 1999 to 2008.  Prior to that time, he maintained a general law practice in Rocky Mount that focused on trial and appellate work.

Evans graduated from Rocky Mount Senior High School in 1970.  He earned a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1974, and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977. (Read more)

Ya’ll Better Wake The Hell Up & See Who Are Working Against You, Rocky Mount Telegram Was Notified!

Damn shame and they talk about working across party lines. Our Governor is from Nash County and Collins has the audacity to add Nash County.

In a sweeping move – House District 25 Jeff Collins Nash County added Nash County to a local bill sponsored by Rep. Justin  Burr – to strip Gov. Cooper of appointments to NCC and have the legislature make those appointments.   This bill has passed the house and is now in the senate.  This was done with no input from the community, board of commissioners, community college or otherwise as I can determine.  Please explore your contacts and see what you can determine. 

This appears to be petty power grabbing and not about the good of our community or the college.  This kind of lawmaking is in complete disregard of our community and the majority of us who elected a Governor for the purposes of exercising some of these powers.   To demean the power of the Governor is not in the best interest of our state or our democracy. 

Please make formal requests to  your county commissioners, community college board, city council and school boards to pass resolutions against this measure.  This will bring attention to this aggregious action. 

Also please contact any republicans you know who will publicly oppose this matter and especially who can influence Sen. Rick Horner to stop this measure in the Senate.  The problem we will face in the Senate is that these other counties may support this bill moving forward – not sure if I can get Horner to take Collins on by supporting removing Nash County.  Perhaps he can get it removed behind the scenes – however, it would be good for him to know the level of concern about this. 

SECTION 1.(c) This section applies only to Cape Fear Community College, Montgomery Community College, Nash Community College, Piedmont Community College, Rockingham Community College, and Wayne Community College

Yes – Telegram was alerted on Weds and still no response or article.  The strongest response needs to come from the citizens of Nash county.  It’s a similar issue as the schools piece — if Nash county stands silent — it’s harder to fight this overreach or power grabbing; however, this could easily escalate to a statewide issue/bill and they are moving into every other possible area — shifting gubernatorial power to legislature and ultimately themselves –special superior court justices, university boards of trustees, now community colleges, not sure what’s next, etc.

An Open Letter To Van Holland Owner/Reporter Tar River Times In Re: New sheriff will be selected March 23

I had been waiting on this article because I knew you were going to do an article and not contact me just like the Lindell John Kay of the Rocky Mount Telegram did.

You started out ignant talking about, “Edgecombe County Democrats are giving themselves nearly four weeks to decide who the new Sheriff of Edgecombe County will be after James Knight retired this week. Democratic Party Chair Roosevelt Higgs said that the vote will take place March 23 at 6 p.m. at Edgecombe Community College in the Mobley Atrium.” You say Edgecombe County Democrats and then say Higgs said. Now if that ain’t about as ignant as it gets because Higgs is the one that is prolonging the process. Again this is funny as hell because I have not received anything about a meeting on March 23rd nor have any others I have talked to.

You say, Higgs said the process is going to be as fair as possible and that as many as 116 votes could be cast. Fair? When he has not given information to the candidates and other Democrats that they have requested.

The following is just as ignant as Higgs prolonging the process. You say, “Before the selection is made, the four candidates will have another opportunity to speak to elected officials and citizens on March 9 at 6 p.m. in Rocky Mount on Edgecombe Community College’s campus in the Barnes Building.” This is sponsored by the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission. I told the Democratic Women to ask the HRC if they wanted to co-host their forum and they didn’t but then set up a meeting in Rocky Mount. Hell what do the candidates need to speak to elected officials and citizens for when they will address us on March 23 when we will vote. As I stated since Higgs chair of the party, secretary of the party who is chair of the HRC and the 3rd vice chair are all members of the Human Relation Commission and their focus should be on calling a Democratic Party meeting asap so we can do the appointment. It makes no sense the staff and we as citizens of Edgecombe has to wait while Higgs play games with the process. But talking about being fair and transparent.

I find the following to be too damn ignant! You say, “Several Democratic sources said they’re having trouble with some issues, especially with a Democratic chair in a county precinct that thinks the precinct belongs to him based on several recordings that have surfaced on Youtube.” Ignant ain’t nobody said that but ignant ass Higgs. But ignant you like the dude from the Telegram ya’ll report bits and pieces of what you want to make folk believe. When Higgs left the message about he was coming to my meeting and said some folk wanted to come and that if I didn’t have my meeting on February 22nd or 23rd that he think the folk in my precinct could have a meeting.  He think? Oh hell no he knew that was a lie. I said there will be no precinct meeting until I meet and I had until the March 8th deadline. I said I was going to post the meeting time and location just like I have been doing over the years and hell no I was not going to call Higgs, that if he didn’t see the time on my social media sites and in the local newspaper then he will SOL. But what he should have done though is if he wanted to come to the meeting he should asked me or his brother my vice chair to pick him up since he didn’t show up. I knew he was not coming because I know the games he play. Just like he put his name in the hat for positions then take his name out in the last hour because he know he can’t win.

I had heard Higgs, Chief Deputy Moseley and you were suppose to come to my precinct meeting. I told them none of ya’ll lived in my precinct and you are not a Democrat anyway. I knew Higgs was not coming because he didn’t have transportation from Rocky Mount where he lives to get to my meeting in Tarboro.

I find the following to be too damn ignant, “One of those sources said she feels like the sheriff’s selection has become racial motivated and despite the source being African-American, she wants the process to be fair for all four candidates.” How in the hell has the selection been racially motivated? I would bet the person you talked to was Dr. Glenda Knight secretary of the Democratic Party and also chair of the Human Relations Commission. So how do they want the process to be fair when they have not produced the information that the candidates and some others have asked for such as the precinct chairs from the past annual precinct meetings that was either in 2014 or 2015 along with the elected officials as to how many votes the entire executive committee has.

I find the following to be too ignant, “In another voicemail, Higgs said he’s got other people from that precinct that’s called him wanting to know about the meeting.” Ain’t nobody called this ignant when all they had to was to go to my social media pages, The Tar River Times, Tarboro 27886 and The Rocky Mount Telegram and The Tarboro Telegram. I announced my meeting and those folk Higgs talking about didn’t show up.

You say, “Danny followed up using his favorite phrase calling by calling Higgs ignorant stating he can’t intimidate him like he does the ignorant white folk and ignorant safe Negros.” Hell yeah I said it and have said it over the years. I say it because I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I have shown Higgs time and time again that he can not intimidate me.

I can’t believe you would post the following ignant ass statement because I know you and you know me. You say, “Higgs has said all along that Dancy is trying to run the show and that he wants to be like him. “He wants to be like me so bad,” Higgs said. “He just can’t do it.” I work a real job. I do my homework always have and always will, so why would I want to be like this criminal? I don’t want to run anything and will continue to challenge Higgs about the things he do especially when it comes to policies and procedures.

If you want to do a real story why don’t you ask Higgs why he is prolonging the process trying to use the precinct meetings as an excuse. Ask him why there was no mention of Sheriff James Knight retirement in our precinct packages? Ask him why he didn’t say anything about he would be calling a special meeting so that the executive committee could select a candidate to fill the unexpired term of Knight. But he talking about being fair? Really? This crook don’t know anything about being fair and his record validates such.

What Lindell John Kay reporter from the Rocky Mount Telegram and yourself have done is validate what I have been saying about the process all along that Higgs is playing games. To that degree I say thank you.

Open Letter To Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Since You Called Folk Saying I Was Trying To Find Something On The Candidates This Was More Interesting

Rev. Roosevelt Higgs since you like to play games you called me on Tuesday and left the following message: Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Says He Heard I Was Trying To Dig Up Dirt On Atkinson and Others Voicemail #6 . You also called some folk telling them the same thing you left on my voicemail. Dude I heard a couple of weeks ago that you were out trying to discredit Atkinson and now telling folk I was. Well ignant I endorsed Atkinson the night of the Democratic Women’s Sheriff Forum. I have no reason to try to dig up any dirt on him or any of the candidates. I have stated why I support Atkinson and why I could not support the other candidates so I am past that and waiting on you to call the meeting so we can vote.

I didn’t need to dig up any dirt on you because I already knew you. But someone shared the following NC Department of Corrections with me and I found it to be very, very interesting.

It is sad when I have to deal with folk who try to discredit me simply because I say I am going to hold them accountable and ask they hold me accountable. It don’t work one way for me because I am going to hold up my end. It is up to others to hold up their end.

Higgs stop getting mad with me because I have challenged you over the years and will continue to challenge you. I will not allow you to manipulate the processes and procedures simply because so many do not read The Plan of Organization. You know I do my homework and will call you out. Others know I will call you out because they will contact me because they know I be on top of things.

Higgs I will not allow you nor anyone to intentionally mislead folk. You ain’t totally ignant you just act like it.

I am requesting that you remove yourself from the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission and the Edgecombe County Democratic Party as the county chair.

Thanking you in advance.
