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!
