I remember back in 2012 when the Local Government Commission presented a series of investigative reports on the Town of Princeville and everybody thought that was something. Hell the Princeville Ignant 3 former Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, former Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and former Commissioner Calvin Sherrod did some damage to the town. However it was the former Mayor Everette-Oates who the report names as spending money without proper documentation. I feel the worst damage was not particularly the money but how the Princeville 3 voted to keep Princeville right where they were and did not vote to move the town forward. For me that was much worse than the $8,000 I believe is in question now that Mayor Everette-Oates has not accounted for, but it is pending in the courts. She can’t put it off too many more times.
Now I am waiting for the report to come out about the investigation with the Town of Tarboro former Town Manager Sam Nobles. I know what I read on the Daily Southerner website last year when the Town of Tarboro hired a private investigator to investigate Nobles that report looked much worse. I believe the LGC report will probably be more in depth than the private investigator’s report.
I have been told the report was suppose to become public 10 days from a previous meeting so that should be within the next couple of days.
For the second time Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and Interim Town Manager Maggie Boyd did not attend the meeting. Commissioners Calvin Sherrod, Ann Howell and Gwendolyn Knight were present.
See who attended the meeting and what information was shared and the questions that were asked.

Note: Originally posted February 7, 2012.
Response: I would think that by now the Attorney General’s Office and the State Treasurer’s Office are involved. The sad part is that Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews, Commissioner Calvin Sherrod and Maggie Boyd interim Town Manager really and truly believe they have done a great job. If I could say one word, “IGNANT!”
PRINCEVILLE — The Town of Princeville’s annual audit report is past due for the second consecutive year, but this time, the fault does not lie solely in the hands of the town adminstration. The North Carolina Department of State Treasure State and Local Government Commission, which took over the town’s finances last July, is responsible. (More)
TARBORO — PRINCEVILLE — Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, commissioner Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and interim town manager Maggie Boyd did not meet the Dec. 7 deadline set by the Local Government Commission for them to respond to questionable reimbursements they received from the town.

TARBORO — PRINCEVILLE — Michael Bennett made a passionate plea to the citizens of his hometown and he didn’t pull punches Tuesday during the Princeville Community Update Meeting sponsored by The North Carolina Department of State Treasurer.
"Yes, I’m angry. I’m angry because I’m passionate about Princeville," said Bennett, who spoke loudly. "…That’s what keeping us down. Ignorance. Until somebody stands up and gets these people out of the way, then, this town will go forward. … Next November, send them home. If I have to come back and do it, then so be it." (More)

TARBORO — During its regular meeting Monday night, Edgecombe County Board of Commissioner voted unanimously to take over most utility operations for the Town of Princeville — water and sewer collections, maintaining the water and sewer system and collecting the town garbage — at the request of the Local Government Commission.

Response: The Mayor is continuing to be consistent with her account about the credit card charges by saying she turned in all receipts so that means she is calling LGC liars but mind you she and her cronies were in Raleigh calling LGC liars on the day that they took total control over the town’s finances. Well time will tell who is lying. I am going to put my money on LGC caus The Princeville 3 is crazy and ignant as hell. Well!
The Local Government Commission is seeking documentation related to charges made on several Princeville town credit card accounts.
LGC officials examined more than $15,000 worth of charges made between August 2010 and July 2012. Charges included approximately $13,590 on an account for Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates and $2,216 on an account for former town employee Diana Draughn. (More)
Note: Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post to view all 10 pages. If I was to guess who asked these questions it would be Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates and Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews.
So I am going to see how long it takes for the Mayor to call a Special Meeting with LGC and the citizens so that Commissioners Ann Howell, Gwendolyn Knight and the citizens can ask any questions that they may have.
I bet the Mayor and her 2 ignant partners are afraid to have this meeting because it will expose their ignant a… because they have been lying about what is really going on in Princeville per LGC. They have either not shared the correct information and/or when they did they tried to twist the truth but if you didn’t know the LGC side you would not know they were lying.

Do these folks not know that they can not treat the Town of Princeville Credit Card as if it is their own? I may pay my bills late but one can not do these things when it is not for their own personal use.
So is the SBI on the way to Princeville?
Well can’t wait to attend the Princeville regular monthly meeting Monday September 24, 2012 7 PM because this meeting should be standing room only. The citizens need to demand that the Princeville 3 resign effective immediately especially the mayor.
But I wonder did the Princeville 3 Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and Commissioner Calvin Sherrod know that Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates was using the credit card to charge all of these items? I wonder did the Mayor share the wine from Taylor’s BP and Wines.
Well I ain’t gonna touch Dianna Draughn and her credit card issue because the Princeville 3 along with the Town Manager’s position should have been monitoring her. So hiring Maggie Boyd as the interim Town Manager continues to add up.
