The Political Agitator’s response: I find it interesting Robbie Davis make such comments saying he think it was the right move for the district and it seems like a good decision. Based on what sir? I hate when folk give statements with no facts to back up what they say. Hell Robbie ran former Black Superintendent Anthony Jackson out of town because he challenged his ass about some work he did at a school. Now I don’t know all of the details why he left but I do know Jackson did that. Wow! Ain’t that something allowing someone to speak about the Superintendent when he could challenge whoever this is. A former member of the school board, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the way Jefferies resigned without receiving additional payments is telling. My ignant ass would say that this is a Caucasian board member because I have never heard a Black person use the term telling. Wendy Wilson tickles me because they have been wanting to make Dr. Mark Cockrell the Superintendent for quite some time. But folk need to really check him out. I remember him from Edgecombe County Public Schools. Damn since Robbie Davis is not on the School Board why in the hell is he the spokesperson? Damn dude got issues with the Rocky Mount City Council, Edgecombe County Public Schools and the Edgecombe County Commissioners. Interesting they are all a Black Majority boards. Oh Race ain’t got nothing to do with nothing.
Several local leaders have said Shelton Jefferies’ resignation as superintendent of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools should bode well for the future of the school district.
Nash County Board of Commissioners Chairman Robbie Davis said he feels that Jefferies’ resignation was the right move for the school district.
“The board of commissioners is not involved in the process of choosing a school superintendent or overseeing the kind of job he does,” he said. “But this seems like a good decision. We are pleased that the decision to accept his resignation was unanimous this time because it wasn’t last time. I think that will help in the transition and the decisions the board makes for the school district in the future.”
A former member of the school board, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the way Jefferies resigned without receiving additional payments is telling. Under the terms of Jefferies’ original contract, if the school board unilaterally decided to let him go without cause, they would have had to pay his salary for the next 12 months.
“I suspect the board told Jefferies it believed it had cause for termination but that it would allow him to resign if he would agree not to seek the severance payment,” he said. “His choices were to accept the offer to allow him to resign or refuse to give up the payout, face termination, fight the termination and try to prove at the hearing that there were not valid grounds for his termination. He would do this only if he believed he would win.” (Read more)
The Political Agitator’s response: This dude need to go somewhere and sit down and shut the hell up. He is allowing some Special Cs to make him look stupid by trying to enter into politics. Damn fool crazy as hell along with them. Who supports a known criminal for a political office.
A downtown Rocky Mount businessman has been ordered by the judicial system to be evicted from his location in city-owned space and to pay the municipal government more than $15,300 in past-due rent.
Tarrick Pittman, owner of Cool Geeks computer repair in the Douglas Block, was issued the ruling from the Edgecombe County Superior Court. Judge Marvin Blount of Pitt County signed the order in the city’s favor on July 16.
The order shows the judge told Pittman to pay $15,320, plus all costs of the legal action. Pittman can appeal to the state Court of Appeals.
Blount’s order was not yet in the case file at the Edgecombe County Courthouse when a reporter went there earlier this week, but the reporter obtained a copy of the document from the city’s attorney, Jep Rose, of Poyner Spruill.
Rocky Mount’s municipal government since last autumn had been arguing in court papers that Pittman breached a sublease agreement by failing to . . . (Read more)
Wow! Robbie Davis likes Tarrick Pittman because his grandmother supported Ronald Regan back in the day. Really! Robbie agreed to making a campaign contribution. Oh that is makes sense because he is anit-Rocky Mount and anti-Councilmen Reuben Blackwell and Andre Knight. Please share his explanations with us about his latest court cases the one wit the city on July 15, 2019 where the judge ordered the property where Cool Geeks is located to be turned over to the city and that he pay the city in the amount of $15,320.00. He also has a court case coming up on August 12, 2019 so we will see how that unfolds. Robbie said Tarrick didn’t bring up Race as an issue. Well that is a problem right there because it is fact that race is an issue when it comes to Rocky Mount City Government. Robbie says when he brought up race that they had very close views on the subject so therefore race is an issue. I find it interesting that Robbie says Tarrick is not living in 1960. He sure the hell ain’t because in 1960 the Rocky Mount City Council was probably all Caucasian. However we know that 1960 was sure enough a point in racial history. Robbie Davis like myself can’t vote for Ward 1 candidates but the difference in he and I is Robbie got big money. I have no money to give candidates. But folk if Robbie Davis is supporting Tarrick Pittman you better know that Robbie don’t give a damn about Rocky Mount City Government and he is mad with them right now. I dare you to research Robbie.
Sandra Smith manipulated the damn station out of the family and then it was able to be sold so she can continue to have a lifetime job. I remember when I used to go to the station almost daily and I also remember when Sandra used to work at Pilot Life in the same building. I knew Herb real well. However I ain’t going into that part.
Well the word on the street was the owner of WHIG-TV Herb Greenberg died at Sandra’s house. It was on the street that they were going together. Damn makes me wonder who else is she may be going with.
This morning I just happened to turn the tv to Whig something I normally don’t do because I can’t stomach them racist. But since my stomach was already tore up I said hell go for it. I looked at them to ignants Clint Williams and Wayne Holloman and damn you just can’t make this stuff up.
I hear folk say they try to call in to the talk show but they screen calls. I didn’t expect to get through but I did.
I asked them since they wanted to talk about it was not unanimous that all council members didn’t say it was a hit list. I said do you not think they talked about it in closed session so therefore when Knight said all of them said they didn’t say it that was the reason why he said it I know how politics work and I told them I would bet them my paper check that I bet they discussed it in closed session. I said you racist get up here and twist stuff and I said bye.
They ended the show by saying don’t take their word for what is going on with the city, look at the video. They say at the end look at what AB Whitley said and Bill Long. So what in the hell the purpose of looking at the whole thing for if you gonna tell them to look at Whitley and Long. Hell when they look at it they will see them but nope they want to get their point across through Whitley and Long.
But what I liked the most is when Clint Williams said when he and his wife moved to Nashville, but ain’t that something because to live in Nashville is not in the city limits. Oh but because I don’t live in Rocky Mount I can’t have a voice. Them Devils are a liar.
Read about the purchase for yourself, WHIG-TV Sold.
The Gate Keeper’s response: Been hearing about the conditions over at the jail so now it is finally being reported on. Looks like Nash County has some issues too however it do not stop with the jail. Maybe 2019 is the year of EXPOSURE.
Two local leaders who agree on nearly everything are at loggerheads over what to do about the aging Nash County jail.
Sheriff Keith Stone sees open bay dormitories and faltering equipment as security issues.
“We’ve got staffing issues — a 30 percent turnover rate — and it’s unsafe with inmates roaming around the dorms. We’ve got murderers in there with a guy who shoplifted at Walmart,” Stone said. “The jail can’t be fixed with cleaning and painting.”
Robbie Davis, chairman of the Nash County Board of Commissioners, said a lot of jails across the state use dormitories and maintenance issues can be addressed without remodeling.
Jailers describe a constant battle to keep operational a jail built sometime in the 1970s with a 1990s addition.
Stone recently invited the county commissioners to tour the jail.
Davis said he hasn’t done so, but he spent a night in jail as a young man and has no desire to see the inside walls again.
Commissioner Mary Wells took a tour. An octogenarian, Wells was advised by senior county officials not to go because of her low immune system. She’s now sick in bed, according to a source in county government. (Read more)
The Watch Dog response: Wow no comments from the racist folk who comment on everything that goes on with the Rocky Mount City Council. Oh but this involves Robbie Davis who has been outspoken against the Rocky Mount City Council.
After nearly two hours of cordial conversations about event and programs affecting the school district Thursday night, Nash County commissioners and the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education held a lengthy, heated discussion about the construction of the Nash-Rocky Mount Early College High School on the campus of Nash Community College.
The high school, which now meets in mobile units on the college campus, is slated to move into Building C on the college campus once the college’s new cosmetology building is completed and renovations to Building C can be accomplished. Nash County commissioners have already set aside $750,000 in funding for those renovations, Robbie Davis, chairman of the Nash County Commissioners told members of the two bodies at the joint meeting.

I have been actively engaged in politics since the late 80’s and I have seen the way issues and people are dealt with. Folk don’t want to call it like it is because they are either scared and/or want to just simply play it safe while nothing changes.
I represent the everyday folk those who don’t know what is going on and when they hear sound bites on the TV and hearing folk talk amongst them as they come and go, they simply don’t understand what the real is at hand and who the folk are that are truly the problem. This is because some don’t want to stir up yep that’s right, but they act as if they want to see change. Well change do not come by chance but by only by fighting. The only way to fight is to fight with calling out the trues so that folk can know what they are up against. One can’t fight if they don’t have a personal interest in a fight. Folk without a personal interest in a fight will simply choose to just walk away but not knowing that they are going to be beat down when they should have been told why they were going to be beat down by the folk in the know.
I have said this before, when the Rocky Mount City Council was about to become a black majority it was reported in a Common Ground Meeting that the white powers that be said that if the Rocky Mount City Council became a black majority that they would move out of Rocky Mount. They said the council would be a black majority but the white powers that be would have the money. Well they have been fighting this black majority council since they took office. It reminds me of the same situation when we voted in the 1st Black President, the Ignant Racist White Folk have been fighting him from day one til now although he is on the way out of office. But the difference with the city council they can’t seem to get these guys voted out and the main thing is they can serve until voted out unlike the President has term limits.
How the talk of the split came about. Nash County Commissioner Robbie Davis white male brought it out. He is the spokesperson for the powers that be some white and some black. Robbie and friends have a problem with the Rocky Mount City Council so they do not want the black majority city council to appear that they are doing all they can to make Rocky Mount a better place to live, work and play. Thanks to the whites on the council who are trying to do what is best for all folk in Rocky Mount but not not limited to. Davis and friends do not want the Rocky Mount City Council at the table so when you are not at the table you are on the menu. Davis and friends do not want the Rocky Mount City Council to give money towards the school system making up the gap difference from which the monies come from Edgecombe County Public Schools so they try to scare the hell out of folk in Rocky Mount by trying to paint a picture of what is and what ain’t a problem. The school situation as is only problem is that the schools on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount has been neglected while the schools on the Nash side has been kept up and/or new schools have been built.
In the beginning all of the Nash Commissioners even the Democrats Fred Belfield, Lou Richards and Mary Wells voted along with Robbie and the other Republicans. Then after some folk questioned the Democrats they spoke out that they were against. But then recently Belfield came up with a plan but was rejected so the vote was all in favor again. But the most recent is now the Belfield and the 2 other Democrats say they didn’t get all of the information and felt they were pushed to agree with Robbie and crew so they sent out a press release stating such. But why did they vote again with Robbie and crew if they felt like they were forced to.
Folk it is not about the school split. It is about POWER!
Oh but folk don’t want to talk about these trues and want to beat around the bush. This is why it takes so long for change because folk don’t say what they mean and mean what they say. Well I ain’t the one!
Now Run & Tell That!
