Last week Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson tried to call a meeting talking about he would be asking Rocky Mount Councilman/Mayor Pro-tem/President Rocky Mount NAACP Rev. Andre Knight to resign his post on the Rocky Mount City Council because of being accused of not paying nearly $50,000 in utilities. Sandy Claus had the audacity to take a photo with a Rocky Mount Police Sgt. trying to make it appear he was sending summons to the entire council to attend the meeting. He could not get a quorum but then said he cancelled the meeting due to he wanted to be about unity. Get the hell out of here!
Beth Woods NC State Auditor was petitioned by some Ignant Racist Rocky Mount Special Cs because they are mad about Rocky Mount has a Black Majority Council, Black City Manager, Black Police Chief, Black Fire Chief and Black Department Heads and has growth on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount.
The Auditor released her draft findings to the council for them to respond to her recommendations and they did. The whole entire council met during their regular meeting and discussed the audit and then prepared a response. Now this was the time for Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson and Rocky Mount Councilman Lige Daughtridge Community Council and any and all councilmembers who felt like Andre Knight should have resigned should have said it then and also whatever concerns they had about the audit.
Because the Rocky Mount City Council released the draft findings of the audit and their response on a Thursday before Beth Woods released the full audit on the following Friday, it appears she was mad because she didn’t like their response and because she says no one has released the draft findings and response before she released the full report. But just because that has not happened before do not make it illegal to do so in my opinion. I have not seen or heard it is illegal so I am past that for now. Beth Woods said she turned over her findings to some agencies so the audit is completed.
I am waiting to see how the agencies respond to her findings and then we can move forward. But in the mean time what the fuss? Let the damn process work itself out and let the chips fall where they lay.
So what in the hell are Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson and Rocky Mount Lige Daughtridge Community Council trying to do? They are trying to push the White Supremacy Movement of the Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens, Community Council, Fighting Crime, WHIG-TV, 252 HoodNews, J. Keith Harris former Rocky Mount Fire Chief, Clint Williams formerly of WHIG-TV and Nash County Commissioner Robbie Davis to name a few.
It is sad that the above are using scare tactics trying to force folk to go to a special called meeting of no significant substance that can’t be dealt with during the regularly scheduled meetings. I am for justice no matter who it is for or against but I be damn if I am for White Supremacy and will continue to challenge them.
I am requesting that Rocky Mount Council Members Richard Joyner, TJ Walker, Reuben Blackwell, Chris Miller, WB Bullock and Andre Knight to not attend the Special Call meeting on Tuesday May 26 at 2:00 that Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson and Rocky Mount Councilman Lige Daughtridge Community Council are trying to have because you have a regularly scheduled monthly meeting that begin at 3:00 Committee of the Whole Meeting and then the meeting for the Public participation at 4:00 PM.
