Response: This was interesting, I thought Williams would have received more votes since she ran for mayor during the last election. Curmilus Dancy II – The Political Agitator

Response: I believe in everyone having a right to run for office however I find it somewhat interesting that all of these folks are challenging the incumbents. I have attended many meetings over the years and have not attended that last couple of meetings due to a conflict in my scheduling.
I have been following the Princeville town meetings via newspaper and speaking with several folks who live there. I am having a hard time trying to figure out why anyone would run against the 2 incumbents when they have been fighting hard for the residents of Princeville while having to constantly fight the mayor and the other 2 commissioners. Those who are challenging the incumbents make it appear in my opinion that the 2 incumbents are the problem when I know for a fact and have it documented on video who the problems are. So in my opinion those who are challenging the the incumbents are justifying the ignance of the mayor and the other 2 commissioners. If I lived in Princeville I would be supporting the incumbents because they have been trying to do what is in the best interest of all the citizens.
If the incumbents are defeated the Town of Princeville will continue to go the hell because it is no way 2 new commissioners are going to come in and get anything accomplished. Until the mayor and the other 2 commissioners come off the commission Princeville will not move forward. Curmilus Dancy II – The Political Agitator
