I will, I repeat I will be posting my opinion about the folk who say they are going to file for local municipalities for the upcoming municipal elections in October.
What a real political engaged person understand is that everyone that seek office will be making decisions that will affect all folk even when one can’t vote for them. Once a candidate seek election and get elected, they will be voting on things that will affect folk beyond their ward, district or area from which they were elected.
All politics are local. I challenge folk to get involved as individuals and speak truth to power and stop waiting on others to be your voice. Speak up for yourself. Attend the Democratic Party meetings and hold them accountable for their actions. I hold all folk accountable black, brown, white and other. Last week the 1st Congressional District Convention was held in Edgecombe County and Senator Don Davis is the chair. I find it strange that we were not given any information about what is going on on the local, state and national level and then a couple of days later Sen. Davis voted against the Governor veto on a bill this past week.
I have been holding folk accountable since the late 80’s and I will continue to do so until the end.
