Timeline: Rocky Mount City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney Under Fire Via Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: Updated: I have found the City Manager to be very professional and she has been doing a great job in my opinion. However, I am not on the inside and not a council person but as an activist I am pleased with what I have seen. The haters have actually done her some good because she has been in the spotlight and the outcome has been Fa bu lous tastic!

I have not been a fan of the City Manager and has never held a conversation with her. It is just something about her. However she sounded very professional in the meetings that I have been in her presence. I support the good that folk do and I call them out on the mess they do. I have read stuff about her since her name was 1st mentioned about her being in the run for city manager. Someone said how did they hire this woman with her background? I said to the person so if you had a background would you not want someone to give you a chance? I said some folk change. You would think folk would change and not continue to do mess after being given another chance. I act on the facts as presented but I need to hear from everyone involved and also be able to match what they say to the policy and procedures. I hope to learn more about the allegations from now to Monday when the next council meeting.
