When campaigning for mayor, Carlton Stevens pushed for name recognition. More than that, though, the 45-year-old businessman worked to convey his vision for “One Wilson.”

“When I talked to people, I wanted them to understand my heart, my vision and my desires for growth of the city, and the method I want it to grow transcends political affiliation, socioeconomic status or race,” Stevens said Wednesday. “I needed them to see my heart and what I thought our city could do. That was my campaign strategy.” (Read more)

Mayor-elect begins work on transition – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: A transition director. Wow! This is interesting and confirmation of what this election was all about. If you don’t know I am going to let you go figure. This is about as ignant as it gets but just my opinion. However they have 4 years to prove me wrong. I am going to continue to attend the meetings to see what this mayor does that will be different than what the previous mayors have done. But I am waiting to see what titles Pastor Thomas Ray Green Pittman Grove Church, Pastor of Abundant Life, Samuel Battle, Tarrick Pittman, James Silvers, Mae Parker, Mary Spaulding Ward, Rita Mozzell Carter, Democrats that played a major role in supporting the Republican and others will receive. I ain’t mad with nobody. Matter of fact if they like it, I love it. During election time I look at what role folk play so I can know where folk stand on the side of justice. Continue on.

One day after the election, Mayor-elect Sandy Roberson has named former mayoral candidate Kevin Jones as his transition director.

In this role, Jones will assist Roberson during the next 30 days in putting together a new leadership team prior to the official swearing-in ceremony in December, according to a statement released Wednesday by Roberson.

“Mr. Jones ran a very compelling campaign for mayor and has agreed to assist me in pulling together a citizen-led team to address pressing issues facing our city,” Roberson said. “I want Kevin to help me put together the framework for several advisory committees and task forces that will be advising the mayor and City Council on major issues like improving our public schools, putting more police officers on patrol and bringing new economic development to our region.” (Read more)
