In the package you will see information on the candidates and voting ballots. There are 2 ballots in the package however that does not mean you have 3 votes for example myself I have 2 votes. The 3 ballots are just in case a candidate does not get 50 percent + 1 of the votes using ballot #1 then a candidate will be removed from the process and that is when we will go to ballot #2 and if need to another candidate will be removed and we will go to ballot #3.

The Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission hosted a Sheriff Forum on Thursday March 9, 2017 at the Edgecombe Community College Campus Rocky Mount NC. This was the 2nd forum that has been held with the 1st one being hosted by the Democratic Women of Edgecombe County in February in Tarboro at the Edgecombe County Administration Building Auditorium. When I asked the Democratic Women to host a forum to present the candidates I also asked them to contact the Human Relations Commission to co-sponsor but they didn’t co-sponsor.

The problem I have had with the current Democratic Party County Officers is that they have not had anything absolutely nothing to educate the Democrats under the leadership of Rev. Roosevelt Higgs and his other 5 county officers. The Democratic Women has been hosting successful events and if it had not been for them there would have not been any Democratic activities since the group was formed recently under the leadership of Melanie Goff Bradley the outgoing chair.

The Human Relations Commission has been hosting a candidates forum over the years but the Democratic Party should have been the one hosting one. Interesting Rev. Roosevelt Higgs is the vice chair of the Human Relations Commission abd chair of the Democratic Party.

Former Detective Larry Woodley the folk I have talked to says he seems to be very arrogant and has not impressed them one bit. I totally agree because I know him. Does it not seem strange that their former boss Sheriff James Knight is not publicly supporting Chief Allen Moseley and Captain Richard Allen. State Trooper Clee Atkinson the people say he has been very impressive and I totally agree.

It appears this forum was to target Clee Atkinson because there were a few questions that singled him out and not the other candidates. I didn’t go to ask any questions but after I heard the current Sheriffs talk about what they were doing since the Sheriff Office became vacant on Wednesday talking about implementing this and that and meeting with folk like Princeville about a citizens watch, I couldn’t take it. To me this is unprofessional and poor leadership because damn you don’t need to be focused on anything but running the day to day operations until March 23rd when the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee meet. Right now these guys are focusing on the wrong thing while the Sheriff Office staff is concerned and waiting patiently to find out who will be chosen to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight

Watch the videos for yourself and you gone learn the day! Don’t take my word. Folk what you need to keep in mind is that this appointment ain’t about me just because I am vocal and reporting the facts not the alternative facts.

One thing that tickled the hell out of me was the question to Clee Atkinson about Sheriff Keith Stone name being called it was not Clee who called Sheriff Stone name it was Chief Allen Moseley. But was a 2 part question ask him what would he do about gangs. He had already answered that question several times. SMDH!

All voting members make sure you watch the Appointment Process that was presented by Senator Don Davis 1st Congressional District Chair because he explains what is going on now and what will take place on March 23.

Appointment Process For Edgecombe County Sheriff 2017

Ignant ass Van Holland You Gonna Learn The Day!

You posted this on your personal page but you can read mines because it is public. But I post on your paper tar River Times and Tarboro 27886 so you can read it.

Now since you continue to let Higgs make an ass out of you, I am going to validate your title.

In re:

Van Holland

13 hrs ·

I know this post may piss someone or several people off, but I’m at the point of not really giving two toots because facts are facts and they don’t lie.

All of these Youtube videos where voicemails have been left to Precinct 11-1 Democratic chair Curmilus Dancy by Democratic Party Chair Roosevelt Higgs, have gone public now in black and white in newspaper articles.

Me: Was already Public on my page so how ignant.

First off, I could’ve gone deeper into detail in my article about facts I know to be TRUE about Curmilus Dancy and you can call me ignant all you want, but when I speak the truth that’s all I need.

Me: Ignant dig deep and post everything you can about me because it will further validate how ignant you really are.

First off let me say, when you tell everyone you have a voice and a vote for the next Sheriff of Edgecombe County, that saddens me because someone like you Curmilus don’t need a vote because you’re racist and try and start trouble everywhere you go, especially with a white person.

Me: How ignant! The last time checked Higgs was just as black as me.

Everything you talk about on your blog you make it a racial issue and about color or ignorance or as you say ignant.

Me: Ignant I write about whatever the hell I want to on my blog. I don’t have any control over how folk receive it. I say what I mean and mean what I say.

Curmilus you go around calling everyone ignorant and then you say in a Youtube video to Roosevelt Higgs and reference ignorant white people and ignorant safe Negros.

Me: I have been doing this for years because this means I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I have explained this numerous of times.

Why is the word SAFE in front of Negros?

Is it because you don’t want any backlash to hit you? Or is it because he called you a vagina and you don’t want anyone knowing the truth.

Me: I know you didn’t just question me about words I say. I don’t seek validation on the words I say.

Let me just refresh your memory on something that I know IS ALL TRUTH.

You had a problem with a former SouthWest Edgecombe HS principal one time and I believe if I am correct, he told you that y’all could settle it in his office or in a cornfield he didn’t care and it was up to you.

Me: Ignant you begin by saying you know it be truth then you say if you are correct. Damn fool!

All of this started with your ignant comments towards this principal and until this day, I don’t think you’ve contacted that man to let him know where you wanted to settle it at. Nor did you call him ignant again.

Me: This was 1993 and the kids called me to the school because they had staged a walkout. Because I challenged him, he got pissed and said we could settle it in the cornfield. I walked out the door and said come on. He didn’t come. I learned that t cornfield term was a racial thing later after all of this.

Funny how I was never banned from the school because he was the one out of control. I was 1st vice president of the NAACP at that time.

The point I am trying to make, whether you are black or white, green or purple, orange or blue, it doesn’t matter that someone of color has a voice, but what you need to do is not boast or brag about it and call people out all because you think you own everyone.

Me: Boasting or bragging? Ignant what? I stated I had a voice and and vote for those that were in on the discussion that had neither.

Don’t get mad with me because I ain’t scared to talk to your ignant white and issues. I talk to good white folk daily.

Yes I know you support Clee Atkinson as the next Sheriff, and I have no problem with that, but when you support him, I wouldn’t think he would want you putting his name in a blog where you are calling people ignant white folk or ignant safe negros.

Me: You do have a problem with that because I challenged you when y said Clee need t watch the company he keep. I asked you who and you said Steve Wadsworth and issues white businessman. I challenged you to justify why Captain Moseley was the best candidate. You are white and Moseley is white I am black and so is Clee. I told your ignant ass I asked Sheriff Knight was Moseley going to seek the position and he said no. When I met with Moseley I told him that.

I hope this gets back to you so you can write about me in your blog, because if you think I care, you are sadly mistaken.

Now RUN TELL THAT with your ignant voice and vote.

Me: The difference between you and I is my blog and other social media pages a public. I also post on your Tar River Times page and the Tarboro 27886.

Please dig deeper and post more cause I got more.

An Open Letter To Van Holland Owner/Reporter Tar River Times In Re: New sheriff will be selected March 23

I had been waiting on this article because I knew you were going to do an article and not contact me just like the Lindell John Kay of the Rocky Mount Telegram did.

You started out ignant talking about, “Edgecombe County Democrats are giving themselves nearly four weeks to decide who the new Sheriff of Edgecombe County will be after James Knight retired this week. Democratic Party Chair Roosevelt Higgs said that the vote will take place March 23 at 6 p.m. at Edgecombe Community College in the Mobley Atrium.” You say Edgecombe County Democrats and then say Higgs said. Now if that ain’t about as ignant as it gets because Higgs is the one that is prolonging the process. Again this is funny as hell because I have not received anything about a meeting on March 23rd nor have any others I have talked to.

You say, Higgs said the process is going to be as fair as possible and that as many as 116 votes could be cast. Fair? When he has not given information to the candidates and other Democrats that they have requested.

The following is just as ignant as Higgs prolonging the process. You say, “Before the selection is made, the four candidates will have another opportunity to speak to elected officials and citizens on March 9 at 6 p.m. in Rocky Mount on Edgecombe Community College’s campus in the Barnes Building.” This is sponsored by the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission. I told the Democratic Women to ask the HRC if they wanted to co-host their forum and they didn’t but then set up a meeting in Rocky Mount. Hell what do the candidates need to speak to elected officials and citizens for when they will address us on March 23 when we will vote. As I stated since Higgs chair of the party, secretary of the party who is chair of the HRC and the 3rd vice chair are all members of the Human Relation Commission and their focus should be on calling a Democratic Party meeting asap so we can do the appointment. It makes no sense the staff and we as citizens of Edgecombe has to wait while Higgs play games with the process. But talking about being fair and transparent.

I find the following to be too damn ignant! You say, “Several Democratic sources said they’re having trouble with some issues, especially with a Democratic chair in a county precinct that thinks the precinct belongs to him based on several recordings that have surfaced on Youtube.” Ignant ain’t nobody said that but ignant ass Higgs. But ignant you like the dude from the Telegram ya’ll report bits and pieces of what you want to make folk believe. When Higgs left the message about he was coming to my meeting and said some folk wanted to come and that if I didn’t have my meeting on February 22nd or 23rd that he think the folk in my precinct could have a meeting.  He think? Oh hell no he knew that was a lie. I said there will be no precinct meeting until I meet and I had until the March 8th deadline. I said I was going to post the meeting time and location just like I have been doing over the years and hell no I was not going to call Higgs, that if he didn’t see the time on my social media sites and in the local newspaper then he will SOL. But what he should have done though is if he wanted to come to the meeting he should asked me or his brother my vice chair to pick him up since he didn’t show up. I knew he was not coming because I know the games he play. Just like he put his name in the hat for positions then take his name out in the last hour because he know he can’t win.

I had heard Higgs, Chief Deputy Moseley and you were suppose to come to my precinct meeting. I told them none of ya’ll lived in my precinct and you are not a Democrat anyway. I knew Higgs was not coming because he didn’t have transportation from Rocky Mount where he lives to get to my meeting in Tarboro.

I find the following to be too damn ignant, “One of those sources said she feels like the sheriff’s selection has become racial motivated and despite the source being African-American, she wants the process to be fair for all four candidates.” How in the hell has the selection been racially motivated? I would bet the person you talked to was Dr. Glenda Knight secretary of the Democratic Party and also chair of the Human Relations Commission. So how do they want the process to be fair when they have not produced the information that the candidates and some others have asked for such as the precinct chairs from the past annual precinct meetings that was either in 2014 or 2015 along with the elected officials as to how many votes the entire executive committee has.

I find the following to be too ignant, “In another voicemail, Higgs said he’s got other people from that precinct that’s called him wanting to know about the meeting.” Ain’t nobody called this ignant when all they had to was to go to my social media pages, The Tar River Times, Tarboro 27886 and The Rocky Mount Telegram and The Tarboro Telegram. I announced my meeting and those folk Higgs talking about didn’t show up.

You say, “Danny followed up using his favorite phrase calling by calling Higgs ignorant stating he can’t intimidate him like he does the ignorant white folk and ignorant safe Negros.” Hell yeah I said it and have said it over the years. I say it because I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I have shown Higgs time and time again that he can not intimidate me.

I can’t believe you would post the following ignant ass statement because I know you and you know me. You say, “Higgs has said all along that Dancy is trying to run the show and that he wants to be like him. “He wants to be like me so bad,” Higgs said. “He just can’t do it.” I work a real job. I do my homework always have and always will, so why would I want to be like this criminal? I don’t want to run anything and will continue to challenge Higgs about the things he do especially when it comes to policies and procedures.

If you want to do a real story why don’t you ask Higgs why he is prolonging the process trying to use the precinct meetings as an excuse. Ask him why there was no mention of Sheriff James Knight retirement in our precinct packages? Ask him why he didn’t say anything about he would be calling a special meeting so that the executive committee could select a candidate to fill the unexpired term of Knight. But he talking about being fair? Really? This crook don’t know anything about being fair and his record validates such.

What Lindell John Kay reporter from the Rocky Mount Telegram and yourself have done is validate what I have been saying about the process all along that Higgs is playing games. To that degree I say thank you.

Open Letter To Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Since You Called Folk Saying I Was Trying To Find Something On The Candidates This Was More Interesting

Rev. Roosevelt Higgs since you like to play games you called me on Tuesday and left the following message: Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Says He Heard I Was Trying To Dig Up Dirt On Atkinson and Others Voicemail #6 . You also called some folk telling them the same thing you left on my voicemail. Dude I heard a couple of weeks ago that you were out trying to discredit Atkinson and now telling folk I was. Well ignant I endorsed Atkinson the night of the Democratic Women’s Sheriff Forum. I have no reason to try to dig up any dirt on him or any of the candidates. I have stated why I support Atkinson and why I could not support the other candidates so I am past that and waiting on you to call the meeting so we can vote.

I didn’t need to dig up any dirt on you because I already knew you. But someone shared the following NC Department of Corrections with me and I found it to be very, very interesting.

It is sad when I have to deal with folk who try to discredit me simply because I say I am going to hold them accountable and ask they hold me accountable. It don’t work one way for me because I am going to hold up my end. It is up to others to hold up their end.

Higgs stop getting mad with me because I have challenged you over the years and will continue to challenge you. I will not allow you to manipulate the processes and procedures simply because so many do not read The Plan of Organization. You know I do my homework and will call you out. Others know I will call you out because they will contact me because they know I be on top of things.

Higgs I will not allow you nor anyone to intentionally mislead folk. You ain’t totally ignant you just act like it.

I am requesting that you remove yourself from the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission and the Edgecombe County Democratic Party as the county chair.

Thanking you in advance.

 

Open Letter To WHIG-TV Sandra Smith Owner & Clint Williams Reporter In Re: Dems Spar Over Sheriff Pick

On Wednesday March 1, 2017 I got several calls that I was on the front page of the Rocky Mount Telegram “Dems spar over sheriff pick” and that those ignants over at WHIG-TV Clint Williams, Sandra Smith and some others were talking about me. They say Sandra Smith Owner called in. I was going to look at the show that was rebroadcasted at 11:00 PM last night but I fell asleep.

Clint and Sandra don’t get it, just don’t care or just ignant as hell because they know we have had numerous conversations in the past and they can’t win. These ignants think they can pick and choose our leaders. Rev. Roosevelt Higgs has called in to their show talking ignant almost daily over the years talking about the NAACP, Princeville, Rev. Andre Knight, myself and others who don’t fool with him but ya’ll like that because ya’ll think it validates your conversation about black leaders and organizations. Well ya’ll are just as ignant as Higgs and he nor ya’ll can discredit the black organizations, black leaders and myself.

I understand Clint you said that that Democrats can’t talk about the Republican Party because Higgs and I were Democrats. Really? How ignant!

I understand Sandra you said I didn’t want to follow protocol. Well Sandra what is the protocol? Are you a resident of Edgecombe County? Are you a Democrat? Hell yeah I said we don’t need to have another candidates forum especially being held by the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission when Higgs chair of the party, the secretary and the 3rd vice chair is on the HRC and they need to be focused on calling a Democratic Party meeting so we can vote. But Higgs is playing with the process.

Sandra I understand you said the date for voting for the appointee is on March 23rd. I am a precinct chair and has a vote but I along with others have not heard or received anything from Higgs. But he talking about fairness and transparency. A flat out lie!

The last time I checked Rev. Roosevelt Higgs is just as black as me so that eliminate race. In the article written by Lindell John Kay Reporter for The Rocky Mount Telegram that ya’ll were discussing it was written, “Dancy posted that Higgs can’t intimidate him like he does “ignorant white folks;” and Higgs fired back, accusing Dancy of “acting like a little vagina.” Well the reporter intentionally left off and Ignant Safe Negroes.” I don’t spell the word as ignorant and spell it as IGNANT.

Since ya’ll are all into the Democratic Party Edgecombe County Sheriff Appointment have ya’ll asked Higgs the county chair who has sent in packages seeking the appointment? Have you asked Higgs has he and/or the secretary given the candidates the information that they have requested? Have you asked Higgs where can you find information about the Edgecombe County Democratic Party online? Have you contacted the candidates to come on your show?

You see my friends do some damn real journalism. But you can’t because ya’ll operating on ignance!

Oh and by the way Sandra tell us about you having the TV station up for sale trying to take it from Herb’s wife and where did Herb die? But attend to the Democratic Party stuff first. LMBAO!

Open Letter To Lindell John Kay Reporter Rocky Mount Telegram In Re: Dems spar over sheriff pick

Open Letter To Lindell John Kay Reporter Rocky Mount Telegram In Re: Dems spar over sheriff pick

First of all my blog www.thepoliticalagitator.com and all of my social media pages like Youtube are all public and noone has to be my friend to read my stuff. But to me if anyone was going to do a newspaper article on my social media pages one would think they would contact me first. Damn but you think this is professional to write an article include me and do not contact me for clarity. I see that being ignance at its best.

I do not consider myself as a top Democrat I am just a precinct chair. What I do consider myself is a voice for those who allow me to speak for them. And I am representing folk who have constantly contacted me about the Sheriff Appointment process how Rev. Roosevelt Higgs is trying to manipulate the process but saying he is trying to be fair and transparent. What a damn lie because if that was the case why has he not given the candidates and others who have asked for information pertaining to the appointment? He nor the secretary has provided the information.

You started your ignant ass article off by making it seem as if I contacted Higgs first and I did not. I responded to him after each message that he has left me which is up to 6 as of February 28.

This damn article has so many damn flaws it makes no sense but you did it to try to discredit me because you wrote half trues. You said, “Dancy posted that Higgs can’t intimidate him like he does “ignorant white folks;” and Higgs fired back, accusing Dancy of “acting like a little vagina.” I said he can’t intimidate me like he does ignant white folk and ignant safe negroes. Why in the hell did you leave out about the negroes? Because you are trying to paint a picture of me towards white folk. I call out all folk so don’t go there. You are also trying to connect me to the candidate that I am supporting because he is black. It is funny as hell that you didn’t say who Higgs was supporting nor who I was supporting so if it was suppose to be about sparring over candidates then why didn’t you tell who we were supporting?

As I have stated many times I say ignant white folk and ignant safe negroes because that mean I am not talking about all white nor all black folk. So don’t get it twisted.

You say we support 2 different candidates. Well how ignant because it was announced at the Democratic Women Sheriff Forum that Higgs was a candidate so if I am not supporting him so hell yeah that mean we are supporting 2 different candidates. I made it clear who I am supporting. But I also know how Higgs nominates himself and then when he see he can’t win he remove his name from the list.

Hell no we don’t need another Sheriff Forum Higgs need to be focusing on bringing the party the voters on the executive committee together so that we can vote and move on. By doing this an appointed Sheriff can come in and keep the Sheriff Office together because right now the staff are on edge because they don’t know who their next boss will be up until 2018 when the election will be held. If Higgs was concerned about the Sheriff Office he would be focused on what is best for the staff and the county so we the people can know who will fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight.

You say, “Higgs said Friday he has called in N.C. Sen. Don Davis, D-Greene, to preside over the upcoming forum. Davis also chairs the 1st Congressional District Democratic Party, which includes Edgecombe County.” But I had heard that Higgs had said he didn’t have anything to do with the upcoming HRC forum so you have validated that in your article. So why did he need to call Sen. Davis about a candidates forum held by the Edgecombe County HRC? So that validates Higgs is working on a hidden agenda. Don’t look good especially with his secretary of the Democratic Party being the chair of the Human Relations Commission and a vice chair is on the HRC also. So what is the motive here but talking about being fair and transparent? So there is no one in Edgecombe County that can facilitate the forum?

I stand behind what I said Higgs is the author of confusion and that didn’t just start when Sheriff Knight announced his retirement. He had a little drama in 1996 during the appointment of Sheriff Knight but we removed him from the process. But to let you tell it it and folk ignant to Higgs mess they would think it just started.

You said, “In another voice mail, Higgs asks Dancy why he doesn’t answer him, but instead posts his messages to YouTube.” I responded to him because the times he call me I am at work. Damn tell the whole story. Plus why you didn’t tell folk how you got to the messages and my facebook page so they can see it for themselves? However I don’t answer my phone when he call if I ain’t at work because I know he will be talking ignant.

I am not in a fight with Rev. Roosevelt Higgs over the Sheriff pick. I have been challenging Higgs on having the meeting in a timely fashion, making sure the candidates and anyone who want the information how many votes each precinct has, who the current precinct chairs were in February and who the elected officials are so anyone interested would know how many total votes can be cast but Higgs and the secretary have been withholding information.

Nothing went out in our precinct packages about the Sheriff retirement, that a special meeting would have to be called so the executive committee could meet to choose a candidate to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff Knight. I said that all of that should have been in our precinct packages and if I was not reelected as chair I could have passed the information on to the new chair. The deadline for precinct meetings to be held is March 8 so it has been said on that ignant WHIG-TV station that Higgs is going to call a meeting on March 23 for the vote. Well a precinct chair confirmed to me today after they spoke to Higgs. I thought he was going to wait til after all of the precincts meet on March 8 because he announced about a meeting. But now he is announcing a meeting and all of the precincts have not met so again I repeat he could have put the stuff in the precinct packages about the Sheriff Appointment so validate that he trying to manipulate the process. The Democrats must meet and present a name to the county commissioners within 30 days.

I got calls this morning about your article and that the ignants over at WHIG-TV was talking about me stemming from your article. I understand Sandra announced that Higgs said the meeting to vote on the Sheriff will be held on March 23 but I don’t recall you mentioning a date in your article. Why?

You know if you wanted to do a real story you should have asked Higgs who are all of the candidates that has sent in a package that they are seeking the appointment. Has he given them the information they have requested about the number of votes that can be cast, who the elected officials and the precinct chairs, vice chairs from the past annual precinct meetings.

I am requesting that the next time you do an article on me to please have the damn audacity to call me to interview me so you can get your facts straight. What you need to understand is that I am speaking for folk who contact me daily about the process and I am a voice for them. I have no problem with taking the ignant mess that you and Higgs are doing because I am going to continue to be a voice for the people. But Mr. Reporter you need to remember these words, you nor anyone can discredit me, I am in control of me!

Curmilus Dancy II
