Princeville NC – Do You Get It Or Do You Need To Keep Hearing?

Congressman G.K. Butterfield listened to the folk today however only a couple of folk spoke up.


The Town of Princeville got to have a plan.

So what is the plan?

If you had insurance and your insurance states what they are to cover, if they don’t then you have a legal issue.

Congress along with President T. says they are going to do something with infrastructure and Congressman Butterfield said he was going to request monies for infrastructure in his district.

But do ya’ll not understand that in 1999 the Democrats were in control? Do you not know that in North Carolina and in Washington DC that the Republicans are in control? So to keep talking about what happened in 1999 vs 2016 is null and void because as you see things are totally different.

The best thing folk can do is to be true to themselves. Think about what they are saying because whether one like it or not insurance companies, FEMA and others that you are dealing with have guidelines so it is what it is. More than likely they are not going to change them in the middle of the game in your favor so you will have to accept what they offer because it is what it is.

Now before you get it twisted I was a flood victim in 1999 and in 2016.

Butterfield Highlights Impact of Trump’s Proposed Budget Cuts during District Work Period


WASHINGTON, DCCongressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) is spending the district work period focusing on his “Jobs and Justice” agenda in the First Congressional District.  Butterfield’s agenda aims to promote job growth, economic development, access to healthcare, and education for residents in the First District.  During his stops, Butterfield will highlight President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts and the negative impact they could have on eastern North Carolina.


Butterfield kicked off his work period last Tuesday with his “Forward Together” community discussion in Greenville.  Over 200 residents gathered at East Carolina Heart Institute to hear an update on a variety of issues from healthcare, to President Trump’s airstrike on Syria, to the importance of adequate federal funding for development in rural communities.  Attendees also shared concerns and asked questions directly to Butterfield.

On Wednesday, Butterfield continued the dialogue on the importance of ensuring federal funding remain in place for services provided to North Carolinians during visits with the Choanoke Area Development Association (CADA) and Halifax Community College.  During his visit with CADA in Northampton County, Butterfield discussed the wide array of local programs and non-profits that stand to lose federal funding under the President’s budget cuts such as the Community Services Block Grant and the HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program.  On Thursday, Butterfield addressed over 200 students at Halifax Community College about the future of federal funding for Pell grants and other financial aid programs available to college students.


On Monday, during stops in Vance County, Butterfield expanded on the need for adequate investments in education and community-based services.  Butterfield met with staff at the Kittrell Job Corps, which provides young people with the education and technical training needed to be placed in meaningful jobs at no cost to the individual.  Butterfield also visited Vance-Granville Community College, where he met with President Stelfanie Williams, members of the Board of Trustees, and students.
