  • Sen. Bernie Sanders delivered a response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, focusing heavily on the president’s claims about the strength of the US economy.

These Ignant Democrats Lawrence Taylor Chair Edgecombe County Democratic Party & Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Precinct Chair Want Some Attention So I am Going To Give Them Some

The following is why the Edgecombe County Democratic Party is dysfunctional.

The following documents shows that Lawrence has had the following Precinct Packages since early January almost a month ago, but he didn’t have the audacity to call a meeting with the party to pass out the packages to the precinct chairs. A meeting should always be called in January.

The meeting on Monday night was held only because Lawrence had the names he wanted to be appointed to the board of elections and had been in touch with the state by the original deadline. 
Higgs got involved because Lawrence didn’t consult with the chairs before sending the names to Raleigh. Higgs was trying to get Rev. Thomas L. Walker’s name on the list as well as the Democratic Women had Dr. Margaret Sowerwine’s name added to the list removing Donacine Vandelli and I heard it was a story behind that name. I didn’t receive a call from anyone that was on the list other names being Dr. Florence A. Armstrong and John Wooten. Florence and John were on the board until boards of elections across the state were dissolved by the ignant ass Republicans who created a mess trying to combine the board with the board of Ethics. So therefore, I didn’t go to the meeting with an agenda but just to see what the hell was going to go down since I was in conversations with some folk over the weekend about the meeting on Monday.

The meeting was supposed to begin at 6:00 but Higgs scheduled it for 5:30 saying just to get the folk there on time. However, the Plan of Organization states the following about Precinct Meetings: Weekday precinct meetings shall begin no earlier than 6:00 PM and no later than 7:30 PM. Weekend meetings shall be held between the hours of 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. I understand this was not a precinct meeting, but this meeting should not have begun before 6. When I arrived around 5:50 Rev. Walker was speaking, and Lawrence followed him saying you have heard all of the candidates.

See the drama in the video from the time I arrived.

After the meeting Rev. Higgs gave me my precinct package not the chair or other county officers. So why have Higgs been giving out precinct packages? I did hear that Lawrence was hand delivering packages to certain folk.

The Edgecombe County Democratic Party has no P.O. Box or should I say an official address. So therefore, how in the hell can you send your packages in after the precincts meet?

See the not written on the document below showing how much my precinct dues are and tell me to send to the treasurer. Really no damn address but didn’t say anything about sending the entire package to the chair Lawrence because we normally put everything in the package and mail it to the party address.

What tickles the hell out of me is how the Democrats in the room allow this ignant mess to go on. The few Democrats that ask questions are looked at like we are the problem and it has been said that we are the problem. Well I have been doing the same damn thing I did on Monday ever since I have been in the party, so I didn’t just begin on Monday. It is documented in my videos, the minutes and the media.

So, Democrats what are you going to do with your precinct packages after you meet? Where are you going to send them? Oh, you can just wait until the convention. Well the ignant chair didn’t even announce when the county convention date and location.

I am waiting on the county convention to see who the new chair and county officers will be. The ignants Lawrence and Higgs didn’t talk about that so they can play games. Higgs been calling around talking about he is running for chair, but he isn’t doing anything but trying to see what folk going to say about who may be running so he can try to run someone against them.

Democrats you’ll better wake the hell up and stop being bamboozled by the ignants Lawrence and Higgs because I don’t dance to their tune. Keep on being silent. Your silence validates these ignants mess for some folk be not for me because I have no problem with standing alone because I know I am right about it.

In my closing, a reminder: I am for justice no matter who it is for or against! I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!
