This ignant guy right here came to talk about the Sheriff Office. He tried to make a point after following the Sheriff Clee Atkinson. What is funny this guy is still living in Rocky Mount on Church Street where he has been living dating back to the Sheriff appointment whereby he did all he could to manipulate the Sheriff appointment process.

Folk Don’t Start Out In 2019 Allowing Mess

Folk have been asking me about Rev. Roosevelt Higgs being on the Princeville Board. I said that ain’t possible because he do not live over there. I said he has already lied all of these years after the 1999 flood about he lived in Speed when it is fact that he lived in Tarboro. I said maybe he is serving on a committee. They said no he took Commissioner Glenda Knight’s place because she is the interim manager. I said no she is the Mayor Pro-tem as far as I know.

It is ironic Higgs called me a couple of days ago and because I have his number blocked I don’t receive the call however he can leave a voice message. He left me a message saying call him he wanted to run something by me. Really?

I tolerate Higgs in public and the last time I seen him was in Rocky Mount at a meeting shortly after the election, he spoke to me and I spoke to him. I have not seen him since that time.

Folk don’t start out allowing allowing other folk to make decisions on your behalf and you sit back silently. If Princeville, which I doubt very seriously has this guy on the board and/or a committee, you need to speak up because you got a mess coming.

Last month he was on the radio talking junk about Princeville and the sad part he used Commissioner Mayor Pro-tem Glenda Knight’s talk show to do it because he hosted the show while she was not present. Couldn’t be me because he would not be able to host the show while I was not there nor could he call in while I am there.

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.

Edgecombe County Democratic Party Meeting Tuesday June 19, 2018 Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Continue To Operate From His Bully Pulpit

I received the following from a female Democrat on Saturday June 16, 2018. This is a conversation with Rev. Roosevelt Higgs

Man your friend just called me asking if I received my notice for the meeting. I said yes and then I asked if he sent them? He said no Lawrence did. Then he proceeded to say WE gonna set some things and people straight. Man I SNAPPED! I said just like I thought you were working behind the seen and made this man look like a fool from poor leadership! Then he went on to attack the DWEC! I told him we women have grown our membership and the chair and officers has done nothing. Then he said make sure me and you are there because he got something to tell you. I said Curmilius don’t have to and don’t want to talk to you so stop calling him. He don’t have to talk to you get it!

Rev. Roosevelt Higgs has been a bully all the years I have been in the party however he don’t scare me. I know how to deal with him and that is to not stoop to his level and deal with him legally.

The problem I have had over the years is how he has called and tried to bully women Democrats and the men say nothing but not I. Linda Tharrington Goins, Viola Harris, Gladys Shelton, Dorothy Joyner and others know I have stood up for them. This is why I don’t play with him because I know how he has called some women Democrats over the years.

What the Democrats at the meeting need to understand that Higgs is on the same level as they are and this is not a Roosevelt Higgs meeting. Actually anytime he get up to speak he has to be recognized like all others and he is not the chair. Hell he ain’t even a precinct chair because he lives in Tarboro in the EL Roberson Center with his mother but uses an address that do not exist in Speed.

Ya’ll can allow this fool to let the meeting be about him if you want but I will not allow mess. We will see how the parliamentary allow mess to go on in this meeting.

As I have stated it is of my opinion that the party is not organized and there need to be an organizational meeting and not a meeting to replace the secretary and other officers.

But all of you who have not questioned the mess that has gone on since Lawrence K. Taylor has been the chair you are partly responsible for his actions. I have questioned his actions every meeting but when ya’ll just voted and moved on, he felt he was justified in doing what he did. Well look at where the county party is now, gone to hell.

Well I can’t wait to learn the outcome of the meeting on Tuesday.

When the good Democrats want to talk about removing the current chair Lawrence K. Taylor and removing Rev. Higgs then and only then will I be ready. Well you already know what Taylor has done. The Chair and the folk that live in precinct that Higgs claim he lives know that he is lying. Those who are close to him know that he don’t live in Speed as well and if you go down to the property you will see that it is no livable housing on the property.

But I have come to the conclusion after trying to educate Democrats on what they needed to do to get the party right, if ya’ll like this mess, I love it and I am going to sit back and see how long you gonna continue to like it.

Oh Higgs sent ya’ll a message in my voicemail and now by calling a female trying bully her and then sending a message.

I am so glad he has not attempted to bully my wife and/or my daughter because he would be dealt with.

So Tuesday night ya’ll better be ready for the bully, I am ready for him at all times. I don’t have to deal with him unless I run into him at a party meeting because when I run into him at the County Commissioners meeting he act like he got some damn sense speak and keep it moving.

Audio – Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Threat To Me, Democratic Women & Other Edgecombe County Democrats

This dude right here is as ignant as it get. Several years ago I had to deal with this dude through the courts because of harassing phone calls and he sending photos of me in meetings to my wife. I don’t have time to play with this dude and I have posted that someone tell this guy don’t call my phone after I have told him on March 29, 2018 the day of the County Convention to not call my phone again. He was about to get some jail time because Judge Toby Fitch was not playing with him so he took a plea and got a years probation. I have Higgs phone number blocked so his calls go to my blocked calls list however he can leave a message. I received this call on June 9 but I somehow opened up the voicemail today by mistake. I called one of his brothers and I also called Rev. Thomas L. Walker and told them to warn him because I will handle him through the courts AGAIN.

Follow The Community Council And WHIG-TV To See How They Follow The Rocky Mount City Council

It tickles the hell out of me that all they talk about is the Rocky Mount City Council. Look at the name of this site The Community Council ain’t that nothing.

I don’t know who are the funniest them or that WHIG-TV Station. You got to look at their racist morning shows especially after a Rocky Mount City Council meeting.

Johnnie Cunningham is local black male is a favorite on both as he post on the The Community Council facebook page but call in to WHIG-TV quite regularly attempting to discredit Councilman Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell but he can’t.

Rev. Roosevelt Higgs a local black male is a favorite on WHIG-TV regularly and has been trying to discredit Councilman Andre Knight for years even after causing Edgecombe County to pay Knight’s attorney fees when Higgs challenged his residency. This guy is something else because he has lived in the E. L. Roberson Center with his mom for since the flood of 1999 but has been used Speed for his residency. The sad part is the 4 black County Commissioners know this along with some other blacks but they have allowed him to keep messing stirred up even up to recently in March when he attempted to manipulate the appointment of the Edgecombe County Sheriff. This is just a damn shame how these black folk allow this dude to get away with mess attacking black leadership. He has even attacked some if not all of these elected officials but Rocky Mount City Council has been his pet peeve because he was WHIG-TV and some other whites flunky.

It is a damn shame how we allow certain black folk to attempt to discredit our leadership.

Edgecombe County Democratic Party And The Lack Of Transparency But The New Chair Rev. Lawrence Taylor Has Vowed To Carry Out His Duties And To Hold The Others Accountable For Their Duties

Under the leadership of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Officers (6) Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Chair, Gladys Shelton 1st Vice Chair, Brooks Webb 2nd Vice Chair, Martha Knight Johnson 3rd Vice Chair, Dr. Glenda Knight Secretary and Stephanie Hunter Treasurer I can’t name one thing they done as it relates to carrying out the duties the are spelled out in the Plan of Organization. However the Precinct Chairs/Vice Chairs and Elected Officials and some ex-officio members such as the Democratic Women, Democratic Men that was only existence because Higgs appointed Rev. Thomas L. Walker as the chair. I wonder why Higgs didn’t appoint someone as a Young Democrats Chair? Oh but he is all about

The Democratic Women had no support from Higgs as they formed nor throughout the time they were formed up until Saturday’s convention. The Democratic Women had meetings and held several events to educate the Democrats in Edgecombe County. Ask they what they have done and how you can join. 

There was never a Democratic Men meeting called. Ask Rev. Walker why?

Why was there no Young Democrats committee?

Higgs has talked about being transparent during the time leading up to the appointment process for filling the vacancy created when Sheriff James Knight retired. Really?

First of all Higgs and the officers did not announce the retiring of Sheriff Knight. There was nothing sent out in the precinct packages about the retiring of the Sheriff and that the party would have to call a special meeting to select a candidate to fill the unexpired term?

Why was all of the precincts no in good standings before this year’s election of precincts officers. As always Sharpsburg is not contacted to get organized probably because they only have a few votes. But that shouldn’t matter. Yes all of the precincts are organized now thanks to the Sheriff appointment however Higgs and the officers didn’t attempt to get Sharpsburg organized. I made a phone call and asked someone to get it organized. I think there may have been a couple that were not organized as well. Because of the Sheriff appointment all of the precincts are organized and in the system the county will receive $100.00 from the State Democratic Party.

Democrats especially the candidates seeking the appointment of the Sheriff asked Higgs and the county 6 officers for a list of the current precinct chairs before the election of the precinct officers were held in March. They would not give up the information and some even said they were not because the folk were only trying to help Clee Atkinson. It is public information and it was none of their damn business what they wanted it for. But talking about transparency, transparency my …

Because I knew that Higgs and the officers were not going to be transparent after I asked the secretary for the information and she said okay but to later respond back and say Higgs had the information. Really? That is the duty of the secretary to record and keep on file the documents. Yes Higgs could have had a copy but he should not have been the only one to have a copy. Actually all 6 of the officers ought to have had copies.

Whenever a meeting is to take place the chair and all of the vice chairs and the secretary as duties to be carried out per the Plan of Organization, per Curmilus Dancy II as Higgs would want to make it appear because I have challenged him and the others during their tenure.

So what they did during the Sheriff appointment was to withhold information by 1st not announcing the retirement of Sheriff Knight, who the voting members were, the time frame to have to call a meeting to select a candidate so that the name could be given to the Edgecombe County Democratic Party within a timeframe. The process was prolonged.

I attended the Democratic Women meeting if February and asked them to host a candidates forum for Sheriff because I knew the damn county party was not going to do it. I asked the Democratic Women to contact the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission to see if they wanted to co-sponsor. They did not. But after the Democratic Women had a very successful forum that had good attendance and covered by the local media. The forum was videoed by WHIG-TV and I videoed it and made it and still available on my Youtube page.

After the forum I made it known that The DCN (me) was supporting Clee Atkinson. The secretary posted on my page that after during her research and whatever she would be voting different. Well I had no problem with that but the problem came when she contacted me and said the Human Relations Commission wanted to do another forum and they tried to justify it by having it in Rocky Mount. I agreed at first but then after talking to some folk they said they didn’t agree so I contact the secretary who is the chair of the Human Relations Commission and Higgs is the vice chair and said I didn’t support the 2nd forum. Now if it had been the Democratic Party 6 officers doing the 2nd forum I would have agreed just because they would have had one thing to show they have done. All of the candidates forums over this group tenure was hosted by the Human Relations Commission again the secretary of the Democratic Party is the chair and Higgs is vice chair. Really?

It is funny as hell to me how the Human Relations Commission had the 1st Congressional District Chair Don Davis to come to their meeting and do a presentation on the process of the appointment. Hell the county officers especially with Higgs smart …. and the other intelligent officers they could have done it. But why didn’t they get him here to do some other things with the party since they had done absolutely nothing even during the Presidential Election. Damn we don’t even have a Democratic Headquarters. Really?

Higgs and crew manipulated the Sheriff Appointment but it didn’t help. Right now I run into folk asking did Higgs become the Sheriff? I say really? That criminal. SMDH!

And then it was County Convention time on last Saturday April 8. Again Higgs and crew manipulated the process because again Higgs and all of the officers had a role to play and no one carried out their role. The only thing that was in the information about the convention was who the speaker was, time and place and that the precinct officers and others were invited to attend. There was no mention of that there would be an election for the county 6 officers. When a couple of the candidates seeking chair contacted me and asked me what they needed to do, I told them they needed to do just like the candidates for Sheriff did contact all of the voting members.

Higgs if I wanted to seek an office I would have campaigned but I was not seeking an office however several folk had asked me too. I stated on my social media sites that if I was nominated for 1st vice, 2nd or 3rd I may would accept. Ignant I knew once “they” told you about that you would go to work on getting someone in place. That is why you didn’t make the executive committee aware of the election so you could manipulate the process. You did just that and went as far as to ask some folk to nominate your candidates to move up from 3rd Vice Chair Martha Knight Johnson and the secretary Dr. Glenda Knight. You are too hilarious. Hell I ain’t mad with you as you are trying to make it appear. If the Democrats who attend the meetings like it then I love it because I am going to continue to hold everyone accountable for their actions. You see my role will not change.

It is hilarious how you took it upon yourself to pay out monies without going through the county officers. Well damn why didn’t you spend just a few more dollars and presented a plaque to the retiring Sheriff? Hell didn’t even have the audacity to do a resolution but made sure ya’ll did one for Gladys Shelton and I have no problem with that. 

Hold up let me back up. I have challenged you over the years that when the county 6 officers meet when the entire executive committee is not in session that it be made public so I could attend. I know that visitors can’t say anything unless the officers allow them to so if you want to say that ya’ll met haven’t heard the 1st set of minutes read during ya’ll tenure. That’s right!

You praised yourself for you and your officers doing a great job and haven’t mentioned one thing ya’ll have done but to call the 1st Congressional District Chair in to carry out the Sheriff appointment. On the night of the appointment I started to make a motion that you carry out the meeting without you just handing over to the visiting chair and they would have seen just how ignant things would have been on that night. Actually the visiting chair should have been there just to assist and not to do your job as it relates to your job duties per the Plan of Organization not Curmilus Dancy II plan. I know what I am talking about because I had that conversation with the visiting chair before the night of the appointment and also a couple of days ago. That’s right!

The treasurer’s report showed just how Higgs felt he could spend money without going the proper chain of command. It was questioned why the 1st Congressional District Chair was paid and why other money was spent

And lastly you have left several ignant messages on my voicemail. But your ignant …. stated at the convention that when the same folk complain you learn the ignore them. Well if you consider me to be that person then when in the hell are you going to begin to ignore me. You can’t! That’s right!

You say I was not a delegate to the District Convention. Really? Again you manipulated the process because you talking about you had called my name but it was too late. Well ignant the way it is normally done all of the Precinct Chairs are automatically chosen and they go down the list. So again you did that because of your ignance. But do you know that I am going to attend the district convention and don’t have to be a delegate? SMDH!

I had to leave the county convention on Saturday because I have a funeral to video. I left after the election of the chair so therefore my video stops there. I sure hate I missed the rest because I have heard so much about what happened after I left.

Again I am so glad to see the election of a new county chair Rev. Lawrence Taylor, a new 3rd vice chair Attorney Jim Marrow and a new secretary Pastor Angela Yvette Hart-Brown. I find it interesting that the former 3rd vice chair and the secretary moved up so all I got to say is that I hope the new chair will do some new things to get our party  where it needs to be.

I will support the county 6 officers however I will continue to challenge them so let’s do the damn thing.

I am for justice no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

And to whomever report what I say and do to Rev. Roosevelt Higgs, “Now Run & Tell That!”
