There has been a WSBS Movement that has been going on since 2003 but it has been sho nuff moving since December 2018. I found the following to be quite interesting.
Damn this guy has not once said anything about working with the current council. For a person to have not one vote how in the hell do he think he can get anything accomplished. If you have ever been to a council meeting you will see the mayor carries out the meeting and in the committee of the whole meetings hell the mayor pro-tem carry out those. You see folk you better research for yourself what each candidate is saying because if what they are saying do not align with what can be done then that is just a bunch b.s. to win your votes.
“Roberson, in a prepared statement, expressed appreciation to the voters in the city and said he was proud of the support he and his campaign received.
“While we did not capture the magic 50 percent tonight, I will gladly take 48 percent and get ready for round two with a runoff in November,” Roberson said.
“Folks, here’s what we are facing in November — a candidate who wants to maintain the status quo or a candidate who will embrace change and hold City Hall accountable,” he said.
“I can tell you that the citizens of Rocky Mount are fed up with failing schools, rising crime, declining home values and unemployment above the state average,” he said. “We know the status quo is not working for our city — it is time for a change.”
Sandy what is the status quo you speak of?
Are you saying the current mayor and the current council do not hold City Hall accountable? Help me to understand.
You say the citizens are fed up with failing schools well the fight is not with the council because they do not control the school system and that is the role of Nash County Commissioners.
How in the hell can the city council control crime?
What does the council have to do with declining home values?
Unemployment is an issue for lots of cities however there are jobs and it is up to folk who are willing to work to take them. However with all of new jobs coming to Edgecombe County what in the hell can you do that ain’t already in place?
Again what in the hell is the status quo? The only things that comes to mind for me being an informed Black Man is that you and the Special Cs who began a WSBS Movement in December leading up to the election is y’all are mad that the council is a Black Majority. And on top of that the city has a Black City Manager, Black Police Chief and most recently a Black Fire Chief. Damn all of these folk are competent and deserving of serving in each of these capacities.
THE FIRST 100 DAYS – Results Not Rhetoric
Here is my plan for the first 100 days if the voters of Rocky Mount elect me their next Mayor.
Today, I start a run-off campaign with a positive message about our need for new leadership and a new direction at City Hall. I want the voters to know, if they support my campaign, they will elect a Mayor who has a plan and will get to work on day one.
Our citizens are tired of failing schools, rising crime, declining home values and unemployment above the state average. We need new leadership and a new direction at City Hall
Damn this is too funny to me because this is easier said than can be done. Because I am an informed and engaged Black Man I know what is real, what is perceived, what is workable and what is just flat out b.s.
The Facebook page featuring THE FIRST 100 DAYS – Results Not Rhetoric is a myth. You got to read it for yourself. I had began to dissect it but damn trying to respond to that mess was just crazy and I just quit.
Our city needs new leadership, a new direction, new energy and a new commitment to deliver results. We have all heard and seen the rhetoric and the political speech, but the results are seriously lacking. It’s time for a change. I will be a Mayor who holds City Hall accountable, and I will deliver results for the city of Rocky Mount.
Damn oh Sandy is saying the current leadership is not committed to deliver results. So what in the hell do he think they have been doing? Oh just not the results he and the Special Cs wants.
So what is the rhetoric you speak of?
Hell yeah that was a great political speech. Political speeches comes along with elections.
I had never heard of Sandy Roberson until this year. What I have found interesting is how some Black Folk were so quick to support the man. But now that I see how much money was put on the ground I see what moved some folk. Damn shame what some folk will do for some crumbs.
This Rocky Mount City Council Race was not just about an election and Johnny Cunningham got it right. Well he can tell the story because he has been on both sides of the fence. He has been at the table with the WSBS Movement and not that he is back on the side of right, he has exposed some things and folk. They are mad because Johnny talk to Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, Bronson Williams and myself.
I have also talked to some other folk even down to Tarrick Pittman who is a part of the Special Cs WSBS Movement. Where ever you seen a Sandy Roberson sign there was most likely a Tarrick Pittman sign. The goal was to get Andre Knight out of office so they came up with a political machine. I must admit them Special Cs had a hell of a Political Machine and I ain’t mad with them. They worked the hell out of the election but they were not successful in unseating Andre and also Richard Joyner.
Folk you better wake the hell up and look at what is going on. You better fact check to see what the council has done because the narrative that has been created by the Special Cs is based on lies.
