Mayor-elect wants council meetings broadcast – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: Sandy Roberson in response to your following comment, “I mean, we are allowing a local blogger to film it and put it out there online at some point,” Roberson said, a reference to activist and videographer Curmilus Dancy II. “I mean, that happens on a fairly regular basis. Oh hell no 2 things wrong with this picture. The first is where in the hell did the we come from? The second thing is nobody is allowing me to video because videoing the meeting is governed by a NC State Statue. Please make factual comments.

Mayor-elect Sandy Roberson said one of his top priorities as Rocky Mount’s chief executive is going to be to have the municipal government broadcast live the meetings of the City Council as well as meetings of the city boards and commissions.

So when this become a top priority because I don’t recall this being in your platform? But maybe I missed it. But anyway this is something that Bronson Williams has approached the city council about over the years.

“I do think it’s important,” Roberson told the Telegram. “I would like to move forward on that as quickly as possible.”

Roberson is not the only voice calling for the meetings at City Hall to be aired in real time.

Ward 5 Councilman-elect Lige Daughtridge told the Telegram he also wants to move on it as soon as possible.

I expect no other response from Lige but he has been attending the meetings and know that they have been recorded by WHIG-TV and myself along with Theresa Alston Stokes recording live regularly. Also Clint Williams has been recording live. But although Bronson and now you 2 are talking about broadcasting the meetings live, what good will that do? Hell those watching can’t interact with the council live so what’s the fuss? And then the racist comments from folk when they watch the videos and then act as if the videos are a lie by attempting to create their own narrative. For me it is embarrassing and ignant as hell to see the comments from Ignant Racist Special Cs and Ignant Safe Black Folk.

The transparency b.s. Lige talks about get the hell out of here. The official documentation of the meetings are going to be the actual minutes that are recorded by the Clerk if I am correct and I stand to be corrected.

Roberson said he would like to first familiarize himself a bit about the details of policies in existence relative to the subject matter to see what the municipal government would have to do.

Damn one would think before one speak to such an issue they would have familiarize themselves with such before speaking to it in the media. But goes to show that it does not matter because some feel it is okay to just throw out stuff.

What I am waiting on is for the new council members to get sworn in so I can see how they operate as a council member. To operate on the council on their personal agendas only not keeping in line with the actual agenda items will make no sense. So folk for right now let the new members be great with their so-called agenda but time will tell if they will be about the business of the council or their business.

Read the entire article, Mayor-elect wants council meetings broadcast.

City moves top staffers to new jobs – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: Yesterday Fighting Crime did a Breaking News saying Chris Beschler was demolted. But after being called out she had to correct the post to reflect the facts. The other part to this is Sandy Roberson need to recognize and understand who runs the city. If he don’t get the message from this article then he never will. He will sit in the Closed Session (Personnel Matters and others) and will not be able to vote unless it is to break a tie. Now Transition That Part!

There has been a major change in part of the high-level administration at Rocky Mount City Hall.

Assistant City Manager Chris Beschler, who had been doubling as interim energy resources director, now is the permanent energy resources director.

Additionally, Parks and Recreation Director Elton Daniels has been named to Beschler’s now-former assistant city manager position.

The change was announced on Wednesday in a prepared statement by the city’s Communications and Marketing Department.

Daniels had been serving as parks and recreation director about 10 months prior to being elevated.

Daniels will join Assistant City Manager Natasha Hampton in the executive part of City Hall, but he is going to double as interim director of parks and recreation until a replacement is hired.

Beschler had been an assistant city manager since May 2018 and interim director of energy resources since July. Rocky Mount has a municipally owned electric and natural gas distribution system.

In the prepared statement on Wednesday, Beschler said, “I am delighted to make this transition and utilize the skills that have made many organizations successful and continue the groundwork that I have started here.” (Read more)

Rocky Mount NC – Edgecombe & Nash County Democratic Party Officers Will Show You Were They Stand During The Mayor Run-Off Election

It is a damn shame that the Edgecombe & Nash County Democratic Party Officers are hiding behind the Rocky Mount City Council Election is a Non-Partisan Election so they should not get involved. Really! Oh that is because Nash County Democrats are supporting Sandy Claus Roberson.

Hell Rev. Roosevelt Higgs and the Edgecombe County Democratic Party is a damn joke because the party has not held a meeting since Higgs was elected again to be the party chair after Lawrence Taylor was chair for 2 years. Lawrence spent what few dollars that was in the account when Higgs left so therefore I bet the party has no money at this time.

I am going to see if the Edgecombe & Nash County Party going to endorse Bronson Williams the Democratic candidate.

I understand that the Nash County Democratic Party talking about they should not and could not get into the run-off because they want to hide behind the Election is Non-Partisan. Really! So are the Judge Elections and School Board Elections. These Elections have been made Non-partisan over the years simply because . . . Go figure! Yep! It is racially motivated.

I understand that the Democratic Party do not like to support one Democrat over another in a Primary Election and during Municipal Elections because they are all Non-Partisan Categories. However Judge and School Board Elections are on the ballot with Partisan Elections. But the party can choose to support one Democrat over another if they wanted to.

Over the years in Edgecombe and Nash Counties both parties have endorsed a Democratic Candidate in a Non-Partisan Election and also given them money. I repeat endorsed and given the Democratic Candidate money.

Damn folk you better think for yourself because although the Non-Party Elections, the Municipal, the Judge and School Board candidates are not listed on the ballot as Democrat or Republican because it is a Non-Partisan Category, yep Category the candidates are registered Democrat or Republican and not Unaffiliated but it is not on the ballot what party they belong to. So therefore since they are registered as a Democrat that means they belong to the Democratic Party. Damn Bronson Williams is a Vice Chair on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee and is on the County Executive Committee because he is one of the 6 officers.

Nash County Folk you better start attending the Nash County Democratic Party meetings and hold them asses accountable.

The Edgecombe County Democratic Party whereby I am on the Executive Committee because I am a Precinct Chair we never meet until there is a vacancy and then Higgs and a couple of the County Officers try to manipulate the process. Just wait until December when Higgs who live Nash County serving as the chair of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party will call a meeting to make an appointment when someone retires. They manipulated the process when we met to appoint the Edgecombe County Sheriff when we appointed the current Sheriff who were appointed and then elected.

I didn’t attend the Edgecombe County Convention in April when the Election of the County Officers were held and the party voted Higgs back in as chair. However I did have my precinct meeting in March so I am a bonified Precinct Chair and a member of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee. Some of the folk who had a problem with me challenging the party during every damn meeting that I attend, oh they came to me said I was missed you at the County Convention. Well you see they were against Higgs and Taylor and had realized I was right.

After the election some Democrats filed a petition against Higgs but if failed. I told them what to do and had started a petition but they wouldn’t listen to me. Hell if they had listened to me they would have an effective Edgecombe County Democratic Party but now we have a mess. Well if they like it, I love it! I did my part and will continue to challenge the party whenever we meet.

Folk don’t want to hear these trues but I am going to educate those who follow me whether they like me or not. Don’t like me simply don’t follow me.

Fact Check!
Report Back!
I’ll Wait!

Rocky Mount NC – Samuel Battle Voter’s Registration Shows Inactive

Sad Sam Battle could not vote for Tarrick Pittman nor Sandy Claus Roberson because he is listed Inactive on the Edgecombe County Board of Elections Website.

It is funny as hell to me how the Special Cs has Sam and Tarrick a part of their team being their spokespersons and in the Black community. But what is even more funny is the Black Folk who are listening to these guys.

It is sad when Black Folk team up with the Special Cs who have a WSBS agenda.

I keep hearing about a couple of young Black Males running around talking about the role of the Millennium. They talking about teaming up with the Special Cs talking about Unity. Really!

Well all I got to say is folk better watch what is going on around them because there are a couple of movements going on.

Fact check the movements that are going on to see what kind of tract record exist.

When you have Special Cs targeting these Black guys and the Black Community, Black Folk ought to be outraged.
