It is a damn shame that the Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Officers have no clue of what they are doing and act as if we do not have a Primary Election in May.
The following b.s. talks about where our hearts and minds should be when their hearts and minds need to be getting the hell out of the way so the party can move forward as it relates to the May Primary Getting Out The Vote but nothing is mentioned here.
The reason for a meeting that the chair is rescinding would be to get the damn party organized, to be organized for the District Convention and to get out the vote in the May Primary.
There has not been anything official coming from the county party as it relates to the upcoming District Convention who the delegates are and etc. But they are busy announcing meetings and rescinding meetings.
It tickles me the short list of Democrats that received the emails the same names that the meeting notices were sent to and then now letter rescinding the meeting.
I am tickled to death that these Democrats are listening to Lawrence K. Taylor and Rev. Roosevelt Higgs.

Good Afternoon Fellow Democratic,
The reason for this correspondence is to rescind the previous correspondence concerning an executive committee meeting to be held on April 23, 2018.
Our hearts and minds at this time should be preparing to attend our district convention to be held Saturday May 5, 2018 in Durham, North Carolina. After which the officers will convene and then each of you will be notified concerning our next executive committee meeting. Lets continue to work to turn North Carolina blue in November. Thanks for your support of our party.
Edgecombe County Democratic Chair
The above message from Lawrence K. Taylor Chair is in response to the following message that was sent out by Martha Knight Johnson 1st Vice Chair.
April 10, 2018
Dear Executive Committee Member,
We should all be excited about the Blue Wave that is building across North Carolina and the country. This is an opportunity for us to do our part in the mid-term ad fall elections. It can be done with EVERYONES help.
Edgecombe has always been one of the top counties for voter turnout and this year we want to do even better. All it takes is volunteers, strategy, and adequate funding.
In order for us to become more united and focused on our tasks ahead of us we will have a called meeting of the Executive Committee on April 23, 2018 at 6pm. The meeting will be held at the Administrative Building in Tarboro, NC. We will clear up any issues, concerns, as well as the Treasurer’s Report. We will also outline all upcoming Democratic Party activities such as the District Convention.
We will discuss candidates and offices in both election cycles this year. Each precinct officer or representative should come prepared to actively participate in the “Get Out to Vote” initiative.
We should all be proud to be Democrats and in order to maintain the ability to fully engage In the Blue Wave process we will need everyone to be thinking of fundraising activities and recruitment strategies.
This is our party and we want the Edgecombe County Democratic Party to continue to uphold and exhibit true Democratic values and morals.
Looking forward to seeing you at this very special meeting. Please feel free to contact, 1st Vice Chair Martha Johnson should you need to.
Lawrence Taylor, Chair
Martha Johnson, 1st Vice
