Andre Knight Vs Roosevelt Higgs Residency Challenge An Historical Moment

Where have these folk been that live on Edgecombe County side that is talking about running for a seat on the Rocky Mount City Council? I have not seen you at meetings over the years. Oh but I suppose to just give you a free ride but I have been putting the work in trying to make Edgecombe County a better place to live, work and play by trying to make sure we get good elected officials.

But Roosevelt has not lived in Speed since the 1999 flood because he was living with his mother and her house got flooded. She moved to the E. L. Roberson Center in Tarboro and he stayed with her.

For the past 2 years or more Roosevelt has been living in Rocky Mount on the Nash County side still saying he lives in Speed.

He kept mess going on in the Edgecombe County Democratic Party all of these years but some Black Folk have allowed it to happen especially the folk in Speed that serve in the precinct with him but on top of that he has been chairing the party over the years and then the damn fools just re-elected him chair again during the recent Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Convention. Funny to me!

A moment in history! Knight vs Higgs

Edgecombe County Democratic Party Convention/Precinct Meetings Have Been Petitioned Former Chair Lawrence Taylor and Current Chair Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Being Challenged

I am tickled to death at the petition that has been filed against the Edgecombe County Democratic Party because I have challenged every convention meeting along with other meetings for the last 6 – 8 years asking for minutes, if had a quorum, treasurer’s report and more. Some in the meeting blamed me because of how the meetings and convention went because I was asking legitimate questions. I was even told that at the last Democratic Women’s meeting by Barbara Campbell Davis and Judith Moss. I was an associate member of the Democratic Women up until that meeting because I have not attended another one. I along with Sheriff Clee Atkinson was the only 2 males who paid our dues to be active members.

During the previous county convention before the one held last month when Lawrence Taylor was elected, I had to leave early and mess went down.

I attended a county executive committee meeting at the library that was not announced but heard about it at the board of elections meeting. During that meeting Lawrence Taylor former Chair stated in the meeting that folk said they were not coming to a “Nigger Meeting” and that was the one an only meeting that Attorney Jim Marrow attended. I didn’t attend the convention held a couple of weeks ago and when I heard that Rev. Higgs had put, yes put Attorney Marrow in the 2nd Vice Chair position and Marrow was not present at this meeting. I was like really? I said he has not attended any meetings so why.

I told the party how to file a petition against the former chair Lawrence Taylor last year but they wouldn’t listen. A petition was filed but it was denied because of the wording.

Well I am going to sit back and wait and see how this petition unfold. There are 18 signatures listed and I am not one of them.

I am glad to see these petitioners attempting to do what I tried to get them to do over the years.

The following is just a part of the petition filed.

Politics – It Is Obvious These Folk That Have A Problem With Me Don’t Know Me

Obviously these folk don’t know me because I been doing what I do since the late 80’s. So don’t think I just started today just because you just came on the scene today.

These ignants trying to make it appear as I am a racist, something I can not be per the definition so they need to go somewhere and sit the the hell down.

As it relates to Rocky Mount, just most recent I challenged the process of the council when Richard Joyner was appointed to the council. The last damn time I checked and talked to him which was tonight, he was a black man.

I have challenged the Edgecombe County Democratic Party past chairs and Roosevelt Higgs, Lawrence Taylor and now Roosevelt Higgs again.

I have challenged many black candidates over the years.

I have challenged white candidates as well.

So tell me how in the hell can you say I am some type of way about black/white politics?

What you will not be able to say is that I kiss black, brown, white or anybody ass because I can think for myself unlike some folk who are pushing other folk agenda.

I am pushing the agenda I was pushing before the Andre Knights and some other black folk that I support came on the scene. You better recognize and understand that it is the title and not totally the person because if those whom I support now was to leave the office, trust me I am going to fight for someone else that I feel will best represent.

If folk think they are going to get on the internet and talk about me, telling lies on me and folk around me that I support and I not say anything, I ain’t the one.

Now Run & Tell That Part!

In Response To Dr. Florence A. Armstrong Calling Democrats Stupid

The Edgecombe County Democratic Party meeting on Monday was a set-up by Rev. Roosevelt Higgs and a couple of others. Funny as hell how they talk s about him but then team up with him to carry out mess. I ain’t ignant to what went down and was communicating with folk as the meeting was being set up in the last hour.

I am going to talk about what I witnessed from the time I arrived since the meeting was supposed to have begun at 6 but was already in motion when I arrived around 5:50.

Commissioner Viola Harris questioned the process and damn Dr. Armstrong jumps up and say chair I can speak for myself and began her spill which was a half-truth because I know the story. Not going into further detail but I can.

Towards the end of the meeting after I made the motion to accept the 3 names by acclimation, Dr. Armstrong did another spill. She was addressing Commissioner Harris in both spills because my video doesn’t lie and I know that story as well.

However, Dr. Armstrong was not only addressing Commissioner Harris, she was also addressing others including myself when she said although we voted her in the whole thing was just stupidity. Well Dr. Armstrong I will be the 1st to admit I can be an ignant ass whole depends on who I am dealing with. I didn’t want to vote for you, but I had no choice. Hell, none of you asked me for my vote because I was not there when the meeting began, and no one called me over the weekend.

Dr. Armstrong I found it quite interesting that you would make a statement that you would vote against Democrats just because you were mad that Commissioner Harris, Tarboro Town Councilwoman and myself challenged the damn process. But you ain’t the only that has a problem with Commissioner Harris and me. However, just like I don’t give a damn, I am quite sure Commissioner Harris feel the same.

Dr. Armstrong you talked about folk not supporting you when I used to attend the board of elections meetings, but hell when it got to the point ya’ll were not meeting because of the issue with them ignant Republicans who changed the makeup of the boards of elections across the state.

I work a real job working 8 – 10 hours a day leaving home between 4:30 am and 6:15 am and arriving back at home around 9 pm – 11 pm many days because of attending meetings. I try to attend as many meetings as I possibly can and video them so that folk that can’t attend can see what happens for themselves. I post the meetings on YouTube and I do all that I do out of pocket. Not only do I have to deal with ignant ungrateful black folk, but I have to deal with ignant racist white folk.

I have paid my damn dues even if I chose not to attend another Democratic Party meeting along with other meetings. I refuse to allow anyone to make me look ignant because I do my homework and will challenge any damn body when it comes to politics.

You know me and I know you so enough said.

I am the Professional Political Agitator!

See article in the Tarboro Telegram, “Democrats bicker over board picks.”

The following is why the Edgecombe County Democratic Party is dysfunctional.

The following documents shows that Lawrence has had the following Precinct Packages since early January almost a month ago, but he didn’t have the audacity to call a meeting with the party to pass out the packages to the precinct chairs. A meeting should always be called in January.

The meeting on Monday night was held only because Lawrence had the names he wanted to be appointed to the board of elections and had been in touch with the state by the original deadline. 
Higgs got involved because Lawrence didn’t consult with the chairs before sending the names to Raleigh. Higgs was trying to get Rev. Thomas L. Walker’s name on the list as well as the Democratic Women had Dr. Margaret Sowerwine’s name added to the list removing Donacine Vandelli and I heard it was a story behind that name. I didn’t receive a call from anyone that was on the list other names being Dr. Florence A. Armstrong and John Wooten. Florence and John were on the board until boards of elections across the state were dissolved by the ignant ass Republicans who created a mess trying to combine the board with the board of Ethics. So therefore, I didn’t go to the meeting with an agenda but just to see what the hell was going to go down since I was in conversations with some folk over the weekend about the meeting on Monday.

The meeting was supposed to begin at 6:00 but Higgs scheduled it for 5:30 saying just to get the folk there on time. However, the Plan of Organization states the following about Precinct Meetings: Weekday precinct meetings shall begin no earlier than 6:00 PM and no later than 7:30 PM. Weekend meetings shall be held between the hours of 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. I understand this was not a precinct meeting, but this meeting should not have begun before 6. When I arrived around 5:50 Rev. Walker was speaking, and Lawrence followed him saying you have heard all of the candidates.

See the drama in the video from the time I arrived.

After the meeting Rev. Higgs gave me my precinct package not the chair or other county officers. So why have Higgs been giving out precinct packages? I did hear that Lawrence was hand delivering packages to certain folk.

The Edgecombe County Democratic Party has no P.O. Box or should I say an official address. So therefore, how in the hell can you send your packages in after the precincts meet?

See the not written on the document below showing how much my precinct dues are and tell me to send to the treasurer. Really no damn address but didn’t say anything about sending the entire package to the chair Lawrence because we normally put everything in the package and mail it to the party address.

What tickles the hell out of me is how the Democrats in the room allow this ignant mess to go on. The few Democrats that ask questions are looked at like we are the problem and it has been said that we are the problem. Well I have been doing the same damn thing I did on Monday ever since I have been in the party, so I didn’t just begin on Monday. It is documented in my videos, the minutes and the media.

So, Democrats what are you going to do with your precinct packages after you meet? Where are you going to send them? Oh, you can just wait until the convention. Well the ignant chair didn’t even announce when the county convention date and location.

I am waiting on the county convention to see who the new chair and county officers will be. The ignants Lawrence and Higgs didn’t talk about that so they can play games. Higgs been calling around talking about he is running for chair, but he isn’t doing anything but trying to see what folk going to say about who may be running so he can try to run someone against them.

Democrats you’ll better wake the hell up and stop being bamboozled by the ignants Lawrence and Higgs because I don’t dance to their tune. Keep on being silent. Your silence validates these ignants mess for some folk be not for me because I have no problem with standing alone because I know I am right about it.

In my closing, a reminder: I am for justice no matter who it is for or against! I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

Edgecombe County Democrats Meet At Last Minute About Board of Elections Appointment Only Because Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Started The Drama

First of all I don’t like to go into detail about meetings until I post the video but I am going to break tradition tonight however video should be up tomorrow evening.
I received some communications over the past couple of days about the Edgecombe County Board of Elections appointment and that Rev. Roosevelt Higgs was pushing it. It appears that Higgs had an agenda along with a few others. I have no problem with hidden agendas but don’t get mad with me because I don’t go along with it

I was told that the state had sent out something recently that the county chairs were supposed to contact the county executive committee to respond to the said names going to the state for the appointment. What happened is the chair Lawrence Taylor didn’t contact us and did what he wanted to do until he got challenged because during the previous names going to Raleigh it was Florence A. Armstrong, John Wooten and Donacine Vandelli. So tonight, when I get to the meeting, I was thinking that these were the names still up.

I was told the meeting was scheduled for 5:30 but it was not supposed to begin until 6 PM. I arrived around 5:50 to walk in and Rev. Thomas Walker was speaking. The chair Lawrence Taylor said you have heard all of the candidates and I was like oh meeting already begun. Taylor then began to move forward so that the voting could begin.

Commissioner Viola Harris questioned when the information goes out asking for candidates? How did we get to this point?

Florence A. Armstrong told the chair she could speak for herself and that she was driving down 95 North this past weekend and she received a phone call from a man in this room. Really? She knew about the appointment coming up because she was on the board of elections until it was disbanded by the Republican Party. Armstrong said she received the information by word of mouth.

Harris asked what does the party say about information being sent to everyone?

Rev. Higgs said Armstrong didn’t want to call his name. He talked about what we did in 2017 sending names to Raleigh. He gave us the history about what took place from 2017 til 2018 and the boards were abolished.

Higgs said on January 15, 2019 the State Chair that all boards across the state needed to reconvene to elect board of elections appointments. Higgs said we are here because as of Friday we had to get some names to the state by Tuesday because the state board going to meet on Thursday to do the appointment. He said it may be June before we meet again, and the leadership of this county asked him to do whatever he could have a board of elections. So, who is the damn chair Higgs or Lawrence? Higgs then go into his bullshit as if we are damn children. Well they may accept his mess, but I be damn if I will.

After that it was asked why didn’t an email go out? Video will show how Taylor responded. SMDH! Asked didn’t he have a group email and he said he didn’t have it that the former secretary had that information.

I asked didn’t he have all of our phone numbers? He said yes and the addresses.

Then see what Rev. Walker had to say. This damn man said he could say something about some folk in here with some hidden motives. I said and he came with one.

Every damn time I and certain other folk say something the damn chair always say point of order. Ain’t no damn order.

See what Ernest Taylor had to say.

Taylor was ready to vote, and Viola Harris said she wanted to do it by secret ballot. I said if you do secret ballot you will have to make it public as soon as the count is done.

Rep. Willingham spoke about how important this appointment was and what type of person need to be on the board. He said he just heard about the meeting tonight arriving late and had to rush over arriving late in the meeting.

Voted to do vote on the motion of secret ballot. I didn’t vote. It passed. After much discussion and vote it was voted on to do secret ballot. Then after all of that see what Rev. Walker did.

I then asked that we vote on the 3 names by acclimation so we could go home.

After my motion was asked to be amended and I withdraw my motion and changed the wording and the vote passed.

Then see what happened after that.

Video coming soon so you can see for yourself what happened at this mess of a meeting because of like Rev. Walker said folk with hidden agendas. Hell, Stevie Wonder will be able to see who had the hidden agenda tonight.

I will remind folk that I will not allow them to play upon my intelligence because I have been involved since the late 80’s and I will challenge Higgs and anyone else.

I have no damn agenda, no motive and whatever the hell else folk want to come up with.

I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.

I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

See Florence Armstrong response to the party.

Interesting I serve on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party with Lawrence Taylor Chair and on the Rocky Mount Human Relations Commission via the NAACP with Lawrence’s mother.

Funny to me when you look at the hands raised some of the ignant asses didn’t raise their hands because I made the motion. The hell with these ignant asses because I am going to do what is right in spite of what these ignants think about me but I yet for them to prove me wrong.

Video coming soon!
