Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Officers (6) That Took Office In 2017 You Need To Resign Effective Immediately

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.

Compare The Handwriting On Both Of These Letters Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Signature

Compare the handwriting letter in brown envelope when Higgs was chair in 2017 with letter white envelope and Lawrence K. Taylor is the chair.

So Higgs is calling women in the party bullying them. Couldn’t be my wife and/or daughter. Not even me because he has one more time to call my number.

If You Scared, Say It And Get The Hell Out Of The Way!

If You Scared, Say It And Get The Hell Out Of The Way!

You don’t want to fix things you want someone else to do it while criticizing the fixer!

And then when the problem is fixed then you want to act like you were working along with the fixer but I don’t recall you saying anything publicly.

It is okay to work behind the scene but stay behind the scene don’t come out like you have done something when you have done ab so damn lute ly nothing at the time mess was happening. If you didn’t say anything then that means to them you have validated their mess. I have heard this so many times.

Dude running around talking about he got some support. One has to be ignant as hell to have supported anything this dude has done so far because I can’t name one thing he has done.

Dude you know who I am talking about since you are running around talking about me and talking about doing a code of conduct for the meetings. Hell dude I have never been out of conduct in meetings so you can bring anything you want. What you need to do is bring the money you have spent since being in office.

Oh I have no problem with calling names because that is what I do but I understand you get ignant when you see that I have posted your name. Ain’t because I am scared it is because I know you know who I am talking about.

I have been doing what I do since the late 80’s so don’t think I am going to stop now.

Open Letter To Edgecombe County Democrats Since I Have Been Asked What Need To Be Done About The Party

Since I continue to keep getting questions this is what I recommend needs to be done however I stand to be corrected.

Because of the state of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party and some Democrats have a problem with me this is what I suggest that interested Democrats do.

1. Read The Plan of Organization for yourself

2. File a Petition and/or Petitions

3. Petition 1 I recommend since the former county secretary only had 5 precinct packages all the precinct packages need to be collected because the precincts that tried to mail theirs in the packages were returned because the P.O. Box was closed. Once collected send to the NC State Democratic Party Headquarters so that the county can be in compliance. (But don’t have to wait on the packages can actually go ahead and file the Petition and gather the packages while the party is investigating.)

4. Petition 2 I recommend a complaint or complaints to remove the chair and any county officer that has not performed their duties because of lack of communication not willing to perform their duties per the Plan of Organization due to the lack of communication, quorums not being met doing meetings, allowing votes to be taken on agenda and treasurer’s reports that have been insufficient as it relates to how the monies have been spent and who approved the spending.

5. Send Petition/Petitions to the NC State Democratic Party to investigate their findings and let the chips fall where they lay.

As Bugs Bunny would say, now there you have it plain and simple.

Bronson Williams For Mayor Of Rocky Mount NC?

It is funny how folk didn’t want to support Bronson Williams for the Ward 3 appointment to replace Lamont Wiggins but yet said he need to wait and run for mayor. Really?

Now as active as Bronson has been going to city council speaking out and challenging the council, they didn’t support him for the appointment so what do you think they are going to do when it comes to a city wide election? Work against him. The council had the opportunity to appoint someone to Ward 3 when they can’t vote in the Ward and didn’t listen to the residents.

Folk better pay attention to the distractions from not only white folk but black folk who say they are with you.

Folk keep on playing it safe and not challenging things to the end.

I came to the conclusion a long time ago that I am going to stand up for what is right and who I feel is right because I know folk on a personal note what they stand for, what they sit for, what they speak out on and what they are silent on.

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

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

If you don’t want to hear these trues then don’t talk to me I don’t give a damn if you are black, brown, white and/or other. I will stand if I have to stand by myself. I am teamMe however I welcome folk who want to stand with me but otherwise I am good.

Now Run & Tell That!

Edgecombe County Democratic Party Chairman Lawrence K. Taylor Still Calling Meetings With Democrats But Accomplishing What?

On last Tuesday May 22, 2018 sources say Lawrence K. Taylor that was elected in 2017 had a meeting with the Democrats of the Edgecombe County the secretary only have 5 packages. They were not turned in to the NC State Democratic Party so therefore the county is not organized in my opinion per the Plan of Organization. I am obviously correct since Edgecombe County was not able to vote at the 1st Congressional District Convention.

The 3rd Vice Chair Jim Marrow that was elected in 2017 has not met with them since the chair made a statement at the 1st county officers meeting last year saying no folk said they were not coming to a Nigger Meeting. Sources say Marrow did not attend this meeting. Sources say Martha Knight Johnson 1st Vice Chair that was elected in 2017 did not attend the meeting and she is upset because she secured the community college for the County Convention and she is owed money. But it appears that the Lawrence, Martha and Glenda L. Knight 2nd Vice that was elected in 2017 is not united as they started out.

An email went out last month to a few folk on the Executive Committee from Martha Knight Johnson calling a meeting but another email went out from Lawrence K. Taylor saying there would be no meeting. I understand that Martha had called a meeting because Lawrence had agreed to having the meeting but then it was said that Glenda had a problem with the meeting called by Martha without consulting with her. So did the treasurer Stephanie Hunter that was elected in 2017 and the former secretary Yvette Hart-Brown that was elected in 2017 know about the meeting? If they did that mean that Martha, Stephanie and Yvette should have been able to have the meeting because that would have been a quorum if Lawrence and Glenda didn’t want to show up. Well I ain’t counting Jim because he has not been coming to the meetings anyway.

I asked a precinct chair and a couple of other executive committee members did they know about the meeting and a precinct chair said they had received an email from Lawrence asking for some money for the party? Really? Well I don’t get the emails and it is a damn good thing especially about giving Lawrence some money.

But what tickles me is that the it appears that these Edgecombe County Democrats are listening to the 2017 outgoing chair Rev. Roosevelt Higgs. Funny to me because he has got them messed all up. I know he is sitting back laughing at them because he can say the party has not done anything since he is no longer the chair. However I would say he didn’t do anything when he was the chair. I ask anyone to tell me what he did. Never had a fundraising event or other. The only reason the party was 100% organized is because of the Sheriff Clee Atkinson appointment and he and some others made sure all the precincts were organized in 2017. The only reason the party was in vote builder is because the 1st Congressional District Chair loaded the information in since he was called by Higgs to come and handle the Sheriff appointment. And we know the story about what happened with that so I am not going to rehash that now.

On Saturday morning of the Edgecombe County Convention Rev. Roosevelt Higgs called me and he mentioned to me about the party expense for having the convention that it would be none. But sources say Martha wants her money since she secured a place for the convention. I understand a source tried to tell Martha but she didn’t listen so now it is what it is.

I had done a petition and was waiting on a person to add something to it and they never got it back to me. Well that is fine because if the Edgecombe County Democrats like how the party is out of compliance in my opinion per the Plan of Organization then I love it. I am going to continue to attend the meetings and question the mess because that is my right as an Edgecombe County Democrat. I know the Plan of Organization and I know my rights so if anyone have a problem with me because I don’t move to their tune then I be damn if they ain’t better get the hell over it.

I have been holding Democrats accountable for their actions since I have been active in the Democratic Party and I be damn if I am going to stop now. While you are focusing on me you better start focusing on getting the damn party in compliance. But the thing is folk are hiding behind what the chair ain’t doing so therefore they don’t have to do a damn thing.

I am a die hard Democrat and I have said time and time again I will challenge anyone when it comes to Edgecombe County Politics but not limited to. I will continue to hold the Democrats of Edgecombe County accountable for their actions and I ask that you hold me accountable. But when you come after me you better come correct.

Some folk continue to ask me what can be done about the party and I keep telling them it is in the Plan of Organization. Damn why it is so hard for grown folk and some whom consider themselves highly educated can’t figure out what need to be done. One person said to me that someone had called the NC State Democratic Party and they told them that Edgecombe County need to handle the problem. I said I have said that over and over again that it is written in the Plan of Organization next steps but what it is folk don’t want to deal with what is going on. Yep! The NC State Democratic Party ain’t going to get involved until the petition is filed and then they have no choice but to investigate and make a decision on the fate of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party.

It is embarrassing to look around to see my neighboring counties and other counties across the state having real meetings and when not sharing good information on their social media pages. Lawrence K. Taylor don’t even work so there is no reason for him to not take the time to learn how to be an effective chair and to post informative information on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Facebook page.

I understand that Lawrence K. Taylor and Glenda L. Knight along with Barbara Campbell Davis got this thing about it is the precinct chairs and the precincts run the party. Bull … The Plan of Organization states that when the County Officers basically run the county when the Executive Committee is not in session.

Barbara Campbell Davis had the damn audacity to say I was the party’s problem during a Democratic Women’s meeting because of the way I speak. Damn mad because I stand up state my name, my precinct and question the chair about the agenda and the treasurer’s report. How in the hell is that out of order? I also have asked the chair to step down during a time at the mic but damn I can do that and that is not out of order.

What folk need to understand is I am a grown ass 55 year old man and I know the Plan of Organization, I stand boldly and say what need to be said and know I am right about it because I have been in discussion with Campbell Davis and some others who want to talk about the mess with the party selectively.

What I am letting ya’ll know that what you ain’t fitting ready to do is to make the party problems all about me because I know my role and the Plan of Organization and have pulled out sections in the plan for ya’ll to read and to execute but naw ya’ll want to blame me. Well just be correct when you talking about me because I have been doing what I do challenging the party chair and others dating back to the late 80’s when I became active and I will not change now. I am going to continue to say and do what is right.

I know my role do you know yours?

Edgecombe County Democrats “Don’t Blame Me!” for the status of the county party because I am just a precinct chair. I am not the chair nor one of the 5, 4 or 3 left of the County Officers that were elected in 2017. It is clear that there are some problems with the Edgecombe County Democratic Party so don’t act like I started the mess. I been dealing with mess since the late 1980’s I ain’t changed.
