Last Tuesday there was an Edgecombe County Democratic Party meeting held in Rocky Mount at Edgecombe Community College. All of the members that make up the county officers which is a total of 6 need to resign effective immediately so that party can move forward cleaning up mess and also working towards the November General Election.
I did not attend the meeting because I had already had another meeting on my schedule. However I would not have attended anyway because I wanted to see how the meeting goes without me present. I strongly feel the Edgecombe County Democratic Party should not meet about anything other than to remove all the county officers left. Attorney Jim Marrow has not been to a meeting in a little over 1 year. The secretary Pastor Yvette Hart-Brown has resigned. The other officers Chair Lawrence K. Taylor, 1st Vice Martha Knight Johnson, 2nd Vice Dr. Glenda L. Knight, 3rd Vice VACANT, Secretary VACANT and Treasurer Stephanie Hunter all need to resign. I had said a couple of the officers may could stay on but after learning about the conversations in a county officers meeting a couple of weeks ago and the meeting this past week, I have come to the conclusion that all of them need to go. I don’t need to go into any detail why because I have been talking about the problem with the party for over a year.
I commend those who stood up to the chair Lawrence K. Taylor and Rev. Roosevelt Higgs who has been a distraction over the years as ya’ll shut them down during the meeting on Tuesday because there was not a quorum. Hell that has been the case in the majority of the meetings.
Well folk can’t say I was the problem during the meeting on Tuesday since I was not there. If folk had supported me when I questioned the chair Lawrence K. Taylor about the agenda, the minutes and the treasurer’s report we would not be at this point. But you see when you allowed him to carry on the meetings and not demand he provide what I asked, then he was telling everyone that he had the support of the party. He was running around trying to discredit me and Stephanie trying to turn folk against us. Hell he ought to been trying to come up with the money he has spent. Well I hear he did try to come up with it because trying to get folk especially elected officials to just donate money to him to put in the treasurer.
I am so embarrassed because I have never seen the Edgecombe County Democratic Party out of compliance. Yes we have had to fight over the years especially dealing with racial tensions but we got pass that and the party began to reflect the makeup of the county. But then we have had Rev. Roosevelt Higgs and Lawrence K. Taylor to take the party to hell just like that guy and his trummies in the Shit House doing to America.
Well I hope my fellow Democrats will stop wasting time and go ahead and ask the officers to resign and if they do not to file a petition with the State Democratic Party to seek to remove them.
Not only are we suffering as the Edgecombe County Democratic Party but do you not understand the real effect of what this is doing to the county? Do you think elected officials locally and statewide are going to take our party serious? Ain’t nobody going to invest any funds to the party and also they ain’t going to work through the party to get anything done.
I will be waiting for my fellow Democrats that want to get the party back on track so until that time I am going to just ride out the storm.
I do want to remind ya’ll that as long as I continue to be a precinct chair which makes me a part of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee I am going to continue to hold everyone accountable because we all are accountable for the actions of the party. I have spoken out against the mess and will continue to speak out.
