Edgecombe Democrats seek chairman’s ouster By JOHN H. WALKER Staff Writer May 21, 2020

imageA petition to remove Roosevelt Higgs as chairman of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party will be heard by state party officials.

On Wednesday, state Democratic Party Executive Director Meredith Cuomo told the Telegram, “The (state Democratic Party) is taking these calls from our fellow Democrats very seriously. In line with the (state) Democratic Party Plan of Organization, the statewide party officers unanimously determined that the matter will proceed to a hearing. The Council of Review, a diverse group of Democrats representing each North Carolina Congressional District, will hear the matter in the very near future.”

The petition is the second time in as many years that a petition has been filed with the state party seeking Higgs’ removal as party chairman.

In his letter, Dancy wrote, “Higgs was calling around saying the convention was canceled because he was refusing to participate and cooperate.”

Dancy also referenced a conference call that he initiated with state party officials: “I have some concerns that Edgecombe County Chair Rev. Roosevelt Higgs refused to participate and to cooperate with the state Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin and Political Director Lorenzo Pedro on a conference call on Monday, April 6.” (Read more)

“I have never stolen,” Knight told WTVD in an interview conducted in the council chamber and aired on Friday afternoon.

“I have never taken. I never asked for preferential treatment. I have always fought and worked hard,” Knight said.
