Rocky Mount NC – Royal Hanneford Circus Response To City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney Cancelling Circus Coming To Town

Wow the Special Cs of Rocky Mount have now contacted the circus still playing their games trying to come after the Black Leadership.

I hope the Circus don’t get too deep into the WSBS going on in Rocky Mount.

Hell with all of the money that Sandy Roberson has spent on the Rocky Mount Mayor’s Election why didn’t he, LoveRocky Mount and the others didn’t purchase some tickets and the ticket sells would not have been so low from what I read.

These Special Cs are something else.

Royal Hanneford Circus

‼️NOTICE – ROCKY MOUNT

To the fine citizens of Rocky Mount, NC:
It is with great regret that we tell you that our scheduled performances at the Event Center have been cancelled by your City Manager.
We have made every appeal humanly possible and have been turned away at every corner.

The citizens of Rocky Mount are being blocked from experiencing one of America’s most time-honored tradition: attending a real 3-ring circus with animals, acrobats, jugglers, aerialists and even Elephants! The Circus is still one of our greatest Family traditions.

We thank the many citizens who have come to our side and offered help. Please, make no mistake and listen to no other version of these events: The Royal Hanneford Circus contracted with the Event Center (contract legally signed). We have been in discussion with the event center on cooperative advertising. Art Work has been created, paid for and printed (at great expense) for this event. Performers have been contracted and scheduled to appear at these performances.

ONE PERSON – your city manager – stepped in and cancelled the shows.

Rocky Mount NC – Response to Mayoral Race Featuring Sandy Claus Roberson

There has been a WSBS Movement that has been going on since 2003 but it has been sho nuff moving since December 2018. I found the following to be quite interesting.

Damn this guy has not once said anything about working with the current council. For a person to have not one vote how in the hell do he think he can get anything accomplished. If you have ever been to a council meeting you will see the mayor carries out the meeting and in the committee of the whole meetings hell the mayor pro-tem carry out those. You see folk you better research for yourself what each candidate is saying because if what they are saying do not align with what can be done then that is just a bunch b.s. to win your votes.

Sandy Roberson

“Roberson, in a prepared statement, expressed appreciation to the voters in the city and said he was proud of the support he and his campaign received.

“While we did not capture the magic 50 percent tonight, I will gladly take 48 percent and get ready for round two with a runoff in November,” Roberson said.

“Folks, here’s what we are facing in November — a candidate who wants to maintain the status quo or a candidate who will embrace change and hold City Hall accountable,” he said.

“I can tell you that the citizens of Rocky Mount are fed up with failing schools, rising crime, declining home values and unemployment above the state average,” he said. “We know the status quo is not working for our city — it is time for a change.”

Sandy what is the status quo you speak of?

Are you saying the current mayor and the current council do not hold City Hall accountable? Help me to understand.

You say the citizens are fed up with failing schools well the fight is not with the council because they do not control the school system and that is the role of Nash County Commissioners.

How in the hell can the city council control crime?

What does the council have to do with declining home values?

Unemployment is an issue for lots of cities however there are jobs and it is up to folk who are willing to work to take them. However with all of new jobs coming to Edgecombe County what in the hell can you do that ain’t already in place?

Again what in the hell is the status quo? The only things that comes to mind for me being an informed Black Man is that you and the Special Cs who began a WSBS Movement in December leading up to the election is y’all are mad that the council is a Black Majority. And on top of that the city has a Black City Manager, Black Police Chief and most recently a Black Fire Chief. Damn all of these folk are competent and deserving of serving in each of these capacities.

THE FIRST 100 DAYS – Results Not Rhetoric

Here is my plan for the first 100 days if the voters of Rocky Mount elect me their next Mayor.

Today, I start a run-off campaign with a positive message about our need for new leadership and a new direction at City Hall. I want the voters to know, if they support my campaign, they will elect a Mayor who has a plan and will get to work on day one.

Our citizens are tired of failing schools, rising crime, declining home values and unemployment above the state average. We need new leadership and a new direction at City Hall

Damn this is too funny to me because this is easier said than can be done. Because I am an informed and engaged Black Man I know what is real, what is perceived, what is workable and what is just flat out b.s.

The Facebook page featuring THE FIRST 100 DAYS – Results Not Rhetoric is a myth. You got to read it for yourself. I had began to dissect it but damn trying to respond to that mess was just crazy and I just quit.

Our city needs new leadership, a new direction, new energy and a new commitment to deliver results. We have all heard and seen the rhetoric and the political speech, but the results are seriously lacking. It’s time for a change. I will be a Mayor who holds City Hall accountable, and I will deliver results for the city of Rocky Mount.

Damn oh Sandy is saying the current leadership is not committed to deliver results. So what in the hell do he think they have been doing? Oh just not the results he and the  Special Cs wants.

So what is the rhetoric you speak of?

Hell yeah that was a great political speech. Political speeches comes along with elections.

I had never heard of Sandy Roberson until this year. What I have found interesting is how some Black Folk were so quick to support the man. But now that I see how much money was put on the ground I see what moved some folk. Damn shame what some folk will do for some crumbs.

This Rocky Mount City Council Race was not just about an election and Johnny Cunningham got it right. Well he can tell the story because he has been on both sides of the fence. He has been at the table with the WSBS Movement and not that he is back on the side of right, he has exposed some things and folk. They are mad because Johnny talk to Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, Bronson Williams and myself.

I have also talked to some other folk even down to Tarrick Pittman who is a part of the Special Cs WSBS Movement. Where ever you seen a Sandy Roberson sign there was most likely a Tarrick Pittman sign. The goal was to get Andre Knight out of office so they came up with a political machine. I must admit them Special Cs had a hell of a Political Machine and I ain’t mad with them. They worked the hell out of the election but they were not successful in unseating Andre and also Richard Joyner.

Folk you better wake the hell up and look at what is going on. You better fact check to see what the council has done because the narrative that has been created by the Special Cs is based on lies.

 

 

How much will money matter in the Rocky Mount Mayoral runoff?

How much will money matter in the Rocky Mount Mayoral runoff?

The most recent North Carolina State Board of Elections reports show Rocky Mount Mayoral candidate, Sandy Roberson spend $244,088.84 in his bid for mayor and received 4,718 votes that means he spent $51.74 per vote. The most recent financial report for his opponent in the upcoming runoff, Bronson Williams, was not posted on the North Carolina State Board of Elections website. However, given the campaign Mr. Williams ran, I doubt if his expenditures per vote are at that level. The challenge, in the runoff is for Rocky Mount voters to send the message as to whether or not elections can be bought.

Rocky Mount NC – Response to Mayoral Race Featuring Kevin Jones

There has been a WSBS Movement that has been going on since 2003 but it has been sho nuff moving since December 2018. I found the following to be quite interesting.
Kevin Jones

“Although he declined to state who he is voting for to be the city’s next chief executive, he said Williams phoned him on Tuesday night, inquiring about an endorsement.

“I hadn’t even eaten dinner yet after getting home,” Jones said of the call.

Jones said after he told Williams he would not be giving an endorsement, Williams expressed hope in getting a vote from him.

Jones said he told Williams, “Well, I will be voting — and it’s up to you to try and earn my vote like you would have to do with thousands of other people.”

Jones said he had not received emails, cell phone voicemails or text messages from Roberson inquiring about an endorsement.

“I worked hard on the campaign trail, met some amazing people and had plenty of opportunities to compromise my integrity for a competitive advantage but chose not to.”

Had not even eaten yet, Really!

Jones said it’s up to you to try and earn my vote well damn he called you and asked you for your vote. Damn sound like you are mad.

Damn so this means he seen some things that he felt was just dirty and to not share that to me makes no sense unless one want to leave the door open for such an opportunity.

“My thinking was I would either win on election night or go to a runoff — and so the decision that I had made was that I would publicly refuse anybody’s endorsement that did not endorse me publicly before Oct. 8,” Jones said. “And the reason being is because I know how racially divided our city is and I know that after Oct. 8, should I have been in the runoff, I knew I would have been in there with Sandy.”

I knew it would be Sandy Claus and Bronson Williams in the Run-off without a doubt if Sandy couldn’t buy the election.

Jones made clear he believes there needs to be an end to divisions among racial, socio-economic and gender lines.

And he said, “God yes, there is a huge divide” between Edgecombe and Nash counties as shown in the results of Tuesday’s contest for mayor.

“And wait until you see what happens over the next 30 days,” he said. “It’s going to be so divided — and it’s sickening, it’s embarrassing to see the level of division that exists in our city along racial lines.”

And he said, “The county divide is a result from the racial divide.”

So Jones how do you end the racial and socio-economic and gender lines you speak of now?

What did the election results show as that you say is a huge divide between the counties?

So why would the next 30 days not continue to show the division when the damn Special Cs started their WSBS in December and has been in the papers attacking Black Leadership daily since that time. So I guess you feel you will be exempt if you won simply because you have tried to distance yourself from the current Black Leadership and has not addressed the issue.

But I am so glad that the division is not from within the Rocky Mount City Council. This council has worked together and been more transparent than any council before them. The Racial Divide is being driven by the Special Cs who are on Social Media daily and TV via: Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens Barry Rehm, Community Council Elijah Lige Daughtridge, Tales of An Educated Debutante Adrian Harrold Wood, WHIG-TV Sandra Smith & Owner Robbie Davis, Keith Harris former Fire Chief, Clint Coleman Williams, Attorney Ralph Steve Stevenson, Randy Adcox and the list goes on.

I don’t know Kevin Jones however I will continue to follow him to see how he move forward.

Overall Kevin ran a good clean race however I still say his campaigning best fit him running for school board especially since his passion is about Educational Scholarships.

But just my ignant opinion and as always I approve this message

Rocky Mount NC: Letter to the Editor: Candidate’s race should not be a factor in voting (Hell Yeah Race Matters)

There are a lot of important issues for all of us to think about and talk about during municipal elections.

The Political Agitator’s response: What are those important issues Mr. Attorney. I hate when folk throw out b.s. without providing what the facts.

Two things that are not important are the color of a voter’s skin and the color of the candidate’s skin.

The Political Agitator’s response: Speak for your damn self because color is the most important thing in the mayoral race where Special Cs began a movement to unseat the Andre Knight and Reuben Black well for years and now Richard Joyner. Your ass just mad because you ran against Andre Knight and lost and he is supporting Bronson Williams. If you were a real friend of Kevin Jones just maybe you should have convinced him to run for school board because in my opinion that is what he should have chosen to pursue. But that is just my ignant opinion.

It is perfectly acceptable for a white voter to vote for a white candidate or for a white voter to vote for a black candidate. It is perfectly acceptable for a black voter to vote for a black candidate or for a black voter to vote for a white candidate.

The Political Agitator’s response: Really! All that to say nothing.

To suggest that a black voter would vote for a white candidate for any other reason than the voter’s thoughtful evaluation of the positions and ideas of the candidate is an insult to the intelligence of that black voter.

The Political Agitator’s response: What is an insult is this ignant b.s. mess you have written.

I plan to vote for my good friend Kevin Jones for mayor and I’d invite people to join me in doing so.

The Political Agitator’s response: Wow! What color is Kevin Jones. I wonder are you voting for him just because he is Black. But you will never tell. Damn you didn’t say why you were voting for him. Ain’t that something. I guess because I ain’t a lawyer that I ain’t spose to have sense enough to not fall for your ignant mess here.

However, whoever you vote for I would ask you to do so based on ideas and with absolutely no consideration for the color of your skin or the color of the candidate’s skin.

The Political Agitator’s response: Oh but you can tell folk who to vote and not to base their ideas and consideration for the color of one’s skin or the color of the candidate’s skin. Really! Now that is too ignant! Hell just go vote for your man because those of us who are not ignant to the WSBS that is going on know that if the Special Cs are successful in getting the 2 Caucasians in office and then to unseat Andre Knight.
