Conversation With Warren Daughtridge LoveRockyMount About Rocky Mount Politics

Mr. Dancy – I would like to make something perfectly clear. LoveRockyMount is not a political organization. It is a growing group of people that are committed to getting to know each other more in hopes of learning how much alike we are, bridging divides that may exist and ultimately helping others in our community. I take offense to your including this group in your posts positioning us as supporting certain candidates. I challenge you to find any posts made on the LoveRockyMount page or by it’s founders. We do not intend for this group to be political in any way. While some members may be in politics or may show support for a candidate, we do not allow that sort of messaging on our page. We would greatly appreciate you NOT making reference to our group in yout political posts. As I stated earlier, we welcome you to join the conversation. Get involved in a community event. Talk to others that aren’t like you. Talk to me, one on one, for goodness sake. The worst thing that could happen is for us to find we had something in common, right?

My friend you sent me a Friend Request but when I challenged you after a council meeting you Unfriended Me. I ain’t mad with nobody. What I ain’t gonna do is to change for you or others to like me. But where did I say you were supporting a candidate so I can review it?

Thank you Mr. Dancy. For the record, I sent you a friend request right away when I was just begining to get involved. I unfriended you because I didn’t really want to become involved in the way you communicate. I am much more into meaningful dialogue. I didn’t see much of that style on your page or on your blog. As for this topic, you have included our group in a couple of graphics, the latest being one that has LoveRockyMount aligned with Tarrick Pittman.There was another one but I can’t recall exactly what it was. We are not aligned with any candidate as a group. I have not stated any personal opinion of candidate support that I can recall. I don’t have a dog in the hunt this year other than mayor. Who I vote for there is my own business, though I do believe one person is highly qualified. I don’t know enough about the other two to make an educated guess as to their qualifications yet.

What do you call highly qualified?

You do not like my style because I call out folk something you and others can’t handle.

Able to manage a multi-million dollar business, budget and large personnel organization.

I don’t like your particular style because it is usually negative. There is good around us, you don’t have to look far.

Really? Damn the mayor do not manage the money, that is the City Managers job. SMDH!

Negative to you and those who have that mentality. Ain’t used to a Black Man challenging Caucasian Men in particular.

The mayor provides leadership and vision. He or she also represents our city to others seeking to do business here. I would much prefer a polished business person that has experience dealing with such things compared to one that does not. As I said, I don’t know the qualifications of the other two yet. I assure you I will before I cast my vote.

And, I dont care if you are green, your style is abrasive and rude. I believe in calling out wrong but I also believe in calling out right. That reminds me, i have two papers i picked up with pictures of that Army Private from Korea on the front page. Do you now who I might give them to? I figured the family might want them.

Leadership and vision do not have a damn thing to do with your definition of highly qualified. I would ask you do you know what the other 2 manager but I ain’t going there with you. Actually it is 3 more so goes to show you are focused on the 1 candidate that looks like you. And lastly I have talked to some folk who been in the room with you so enough said. I started out saying my friend but obviously since you have an issue with me, then until something change I recall the my friend thingy. Good bye! Going back in my lane. I know a hell of a lot more than what folk think I know. I talk to Black folk and Caucasian folk.

I wasn’t aware of the 4th and am appreciative of your bringing that to my attention. I have more homework to do. And as to the friend thingy, I am quite confident we aren’t there yet! Friend /frend/ 1. a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection

I claim everyone my friend that I come in contact with such as this however that does not mean that they accept me as a friend. I don’t know you and you don’t know me but you have said enough as it relate to you and I speaking to each other about our opinion of each other. I havemy own definition of certain things just like your highly qualified B. S. I have examples of how I operate. When Roger Brantley said he would pray for me and I rejected his prayer. We did not Unfriend each other and we are still friends today as we came to a common ground. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

Tarrick Pittman Came Out Smoking Against Andre Knight For Ward 1

Wow! Dude came out smoking against Andre so now let’s see how this unfold.

You wonder why there is a lack of code enforcement throughout our city? These pictures were taken at the old Wimbley house at 110 Braswell St. You know the one. Near the Library that gave a certain politician his claim to fame.

How did that give Andre Knight his claim to fame? He had the house before he was elected to the council?

The adult daycare! The one that goes into foreclosure once a year.

Wow! I ain’t never heard this before so I learnt something new today!

There are 5 elderly grown men who live in the house and share the facilities. They are being charged $800 per month each to live in these type of conditions.
Is it even zoned correctly for this type of business model?

So you need to have special zoning to rent that house?

Is the light bill being paid for by the citizens?

Could you better explain that? Are you saying the citizens are taking up donations and paying the light bill?

Can you do an article RM Telegram and inform us on this? Oh, I forgot the editor Gene’s wife sits on a board at O.I.C. To much of a conflict for that to happen.

Wow! I didn’t know that Gene’s wife sits on the board. Again I learnt something today.

Damn the Telegram been writing about Andre for how long.

How can we expect our elected officials to focus on Housing in our community when they are slum lords themselves and continue to turn their backs on enforcing housing codes.

Okay I got that but the last time I checked Andre only has one vote so are you telling me that his one vote carries the majority?

But you did say they, so who else are you referring to?

The landscaping looks horrible! That house was known to have immaculate grounds back in the day before it was sold.

Wow!

A strict code enforcement program was the advice given by two independent studies on housing. The 2014 Crossroads to Prosperity Report and the 2019 UNC Greensboro housing study both listed code enforcement as a priority.

So what are you trying to say?

We must do better and hold our elected officials accountable.

Elected officials should always be held accountable not just when a want a be candidate decides to run for office.

What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong!

Damn you got that right! LOL!

Seriously, look at the pics!!!!! The windows are sealed with paint. I see why they were not concerned about the mold at CoolGeeks! Look at those walls and tile!!! If they will house the elderly in these type of conditions, they don’t care about no one but themselves! They use the pro black stance to fool the masses all the while squatting on black people while building their empire in the process.

I waiting on a response from Andre so I will post as soon as I receive it.

30% of the people who live in Ward 1 can’t afford their basic needs!

So how is that Andre’s fault and how can he change that?

But how can the folk you speak of change that themselves?

Let’s change the culture in our city!!!!!

Change what Culture?

Johnny Cunningham he needs your help to get that property up to code!

Wow! Damn Johnny Cunningham what you got to do with it? Oh he calling you out because you are supporting Andre. Wow!

Here is a petty P.S. The sign in front of your “Campaign Headquarters” on Tarboro Street is out of compliance with the Historic Preservation society’s sign guidelines for Downtown.

Has this been reported?

It says you are “The Man of the People” You voted to implement the guidelines! Follow the rules that others have to follow! #tarrick4ward1 #letsgrowtogether
