I was trying to tag Lois Watkins in a post about the Confederate Monument Conversation to find out she has Unfriended me. Now I know I talk about Blocking folk but Elected Officials nope they are not considered.
It appears Lois Unfriended me but didn’t block me so therefore she can still follow my page and receive emails when I post something it just will not show up on her page because I can’t tag her. I ought to block her a… so she can’t see what is on my page unless someone else shows it to her. Well I ain’t going to block her because I want her to see what I have to say about her because I say what I mean and mean what I say.
Obviously Lois has an issue with me because I recorded the Rocky Mount City Council Meetings where she has done some ignant mess like making the motion to appoint Pastor Richard Joyner Conetoe Chapel Church Conetoe NC to fill the unexpired term of former Councilman Lamont Wiggins who replace Judge Toby Fitch as the Superior Court Judge.
It is evident that Lois can’t take the heat.
I sure hope the citizens in Lois Watkins Ward remember and send her a message during her next election. I also hope the citizens in the Ward she made the motion to appoint Joyner go to the polling places and campaign against her since she felt the need to be the one to make the motion for who was appointed to serve them. I wonder did she talk to the citizens in that Ward and ask them who they wanted to represent them? I bet hell to the naw!
I just report the news I don’t make it however I do post the video and give my spin. I also share it with others for free and they can watch my video and add their spin. However, the facts are presented. See the following link.
Lois Watkins Make Motion To Appoint Unqualified Rev. Richard Joyner To Ward 3 To Replace Judge Lamont Wiggins Vacated Seat Rocky Mount City Council
The Watch Dog response: Wow! I was wondering who had put Lindell on this and then the 1st comment was Elijah Daughtridge. One thing I can say The Community Council and Lige are persistent and consistent with their passion to go after the Rocky Mount City Council. What tickles the hell out of me is that I have been actively engaged in activism since the late 80’s and I used to say to black officials what are you doing to promote jobs and other that benefit black folk and other folk like the white officials were doing. The white officials were on the boards and commissions and obtaining land and creating jobs. Well it appears that when white white businessmen and other were doing things it was ok. It appears that any time the black man begin to rise up, there is a movement to make it appear he is doing something that is not right.
A new conflict of interest policy under consideration by the Rocky Mount City Council may affect whether some council members will have a vote on certain matters — possibly including the Rocky Mount Event Center.
The proposed policy presented to the council during last week’s Committee of the Whole meeting adds federal guidelines to existing local and state rules. The guidelines apply to sub-recipients and includes apparent conflicts as well as actual conflicts.
Councilman Reuben Blackwell asked city staff about making sure the council signs all the required documents. He said he wants to make sure the council understood the policy and all it entails.
Blackwell is the president and chief executive officer of the Opportunities Industrialization Center, a nonprofit organization that helps residents with health care, job training and other programs. He earned a $141,114 salary from OIC in 2015, according to the most recent IRS tax forms made available by GuideStar, a watchdog organization that provides information on nonprofit groups.

Do you not understand that you learn what is going on around you from the local media newspaper the Rocky Mount Telegram from reporters that tell the story how they want to tell it instead of making sure the real meat of the issue is on the table?
Do you not understand that the local TV Station WHIG-TV Out of Rocky Mount attend selective meetings and events and broadcast them? Look at when things are about the black community if it is a positive they rarely cover it if it is going to empower black folk or should I say wake up black folk.
Take for instance about weeks ago the Rocky Mount City Council held interviews for candidates that were seeking to replace Judge Lamont Wiggins vacated seat in Ward 3. The interviews were held beginning around 10 AM on a week day while folk were working. They knew then that Rev. Richard Joyner was not qualified and that he is not qualified as I am typing this post.
It appeared that the interview session was interesting because it was reported in the Telegram and reported by several candidates and others present that the qualifications of Joyner and he having receiving the questions was a topic of discussion. Where were WHIG-TV?
WHIG-TV made sure they were at the meeting on the evening of the appointment simply because they and their faithfully followers were there to support Rev. Richard Joyner. Robbie Davis Nash County Commissioner one of the persons who recently purchased WHIG-TV and a critic of the Rocky Mount City Council made sure the station was present and then he came in just in time before the appointment was done.
I hate I didn’t take a vacation day on the day of the interview so I could have captured the mess that took place. Rev. Richard Joyner should never had been interviewed and damn sure should not have had the questions while the other candidates didn’t have them.
It was a campaign going on on the Community Council Facebook Page and also Elijah Daughtridge personal page to support Rev. Richard Joyner to replace Wiggins ignoring that Joyner was not qualified. It is funny how Lois Watkins black female made the motion and a Chris Miller white female, WB Bullock white male and Tom Rogers white male all who live on the Nash County side of Rocky Mount voted to appoint Joyner.
I worked 9 hours getting off at 4:30 and I covered the Committee of the Whole Meeting beginning at 5 PM and the Council Meeting beginning at 7 PM on the day of the appointment and got home around 10 am that night. I don’t get paid to do what I do but it is very much needed. My video shows that you just can’t make this mess up. It shows what happened in real time versus the sound bites of the narrative that the Rocky Mount Telegram printed.
Folk it makes no sense that I sacrifice my time and equipment to capture meetings and events so that you can see it for yourself and you don’t even say thank you and or make a donation. Don’t you care about what is going on in the community that you get to see it for yourself?
Folk black folk need a media outlet in the area. It do not have to be me but it is damn sure needed.
Go to all of these media outlets and see how they bash our black leaders that are making things happen. To do everything they can to try to discredit our leaders.

Damn Lois Watkins not only said she wanted to make a motion to appoint Rev. Richard Joyner but she wanted to apologize to Joyner because of what Rev. Andre Knight said about the process and what happened during the interview that Joyner had the questions. I spoke to some folk who were interviewed and some who attended the interviews and that was what they told me it appeared that Joyner was reading from some notes. They said the Knight questioned were everyone given the questions because Joyner obviously had them. I hate I didn’t take off work but I was hoping WHIG-TV or WNCR TV would have recorded it because the interviews began around 10 AM. Did she say unethical? Really! What she and the other 3 whites done should be considered unethical then. Just my ignant opinion.
