Rocky Mount City Council Committee of The Whole Special Called Meeting Today

The Gate Keeper response: Well looks like these upset folk are getting a taste of what black folk used to have to deal with. Now the times have changed. I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.  But I remember when white folk were in charge and all of the corrupt mess was going on. Didn’t have black media to expose them at the level the black folk are getting exposed. They took everything black folk had from the land to their ass be it man and woman. They don’t want to talk about the whole trues. Some folk got am ne sia. So I am just going to sit back and see how it all unfold.

Ab so lute ly! Packed out the wrong meeting. But that is what happens when folk are mislead. Didn’t attend because I know how politics works. I love it how folk are so easily mislead by 2 social media sites. Oh folk don’t want to hear these trues. But prove me wrong. Join me at the next meeting and be able to speak during Public Comments and to see what is discussed. Well!

We are where we are because some folk got us here and it is going to take a hell of a lot to get us to where we need to be. But I believe it can be done because I have seen some folk speak out that has not done so before. When the rest of them decide they are going to get into the ring and speak out, then we can begin to truly move forward.

Some folk whom have spoke out need to sit down and shut up until the time is right but right now ain’t the time. They can be on the team but not the star.

And for me I don’t have to win the fight, I just want to make sure the fight is fair and that those who are in control follow their own policies and procedures.

Last night was a prime example an opportunity missed to have a teachable moment to show the folk that not only do the school board have some s with them but that black board attorney as well who are suppose to be a consultant to the board and not running the d show.

I am not a college graduate but I know what I know because I have been trained by the best. I received certificates of graduation for participating in the yearly (PESP) Parent Education Studies Program through the NC Justice and Community Development Center Education Leadership Institute at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill NC on June 14, 2002 and again on May 30, 2003 at the Holiday Inn Gateway Center in Rocky Mount NC.

Oh ya’ll didn’t get that!

Monday June 29, 2015 I Understand There Will Be A Special Meeting Taking Place

I will be watching and waiting to see what the outcome will be.

Well maybe the time has come to move on to another chapter no matter what. But with all that is going on, don’t know if the outcome will be in the best interest of what is going on at the moment but obviously that does not matter to the all.

I reported this earlier, “Monday June 29, 2015 I Understand There Will Be A Special Meeting Taking Place.”

Tarboro NC – Edgecombe County Board Of Commissioners Special Call Meeting Monday June 29, 2014

Sources say the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners will meet on Monday June 29, 2014 7:00 PM to vote on the budget. You better attend to see what is going on for yourself. I understand the Edgecombe County Public Schools will be hit hard with cuts possibly eliminating 50 employees some from all areas from the local schools to the Central Office.

As you know The Daily Southerner shut down recently so will you get a complete coverage from the Rocky Mount Telegram. However I do plan to attend and capture the meeting via video.

Video/Photos: Princeville NC – The Princeville Ignant 3 Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews And Commissioner Calvin Sherrod Reunited This Evening And Reminded Us Just How Damn Ignant They Have Been And Still Is

Click on photo for more photos

imageThe Princeville Ignant 3 reunited and called a Special Call Meeting today at 5:00 PM 2 hours before the 7:00 PM regular monthly meeting which was moved up due to the Christmas Holidays.

The Princeville Ignant 3 Mayor Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Purvis-Andrews and Commissioner Sherrod reunited and called a meeting to rescind a couple of minutes to some previous meetings. However the main meeting is the one about a letter that was written to the Local Government Commission (LGC) that they say would not have allowed LGC to investigate Mayor Everette-Oates legal charges. Sherrod voted along with Commissioner Ann Howell and Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight not to send the letter but now since Everette-Oates, Purvis-Andrews and Sherrod all lost, they came together to do one more ignant thing that sent them out in style.

The current attorney tried to explain to the Princeville Ignant 3 how they had to present their case but Mayor Everette-Oates and Purvis-Andrews tried to prevent some kind of ignant way that made no sense. Purvis-Andrews was the move the motion maker while Sherrod was the 2nd man. Mayor Everette-Oates was motion maker. The current attorney told Mayor Everette-Oates that she could not vote because the statue states that if any person actions is pertaining to such that they could not vote. In other words Mayor Everette-Oates could not break the tie. But her ignant ass kept making motions, Purvis-Andrews moved the motions and Sherrod 2nd them. These damn fools had no respect for the attorney and carried out the meeting the way they wanted to.

There is more but you have to see it. Mayor Everette-Oates said how about the others actions they were named in the investigation and she called Commissioner Ann Howell’s name, former Mayor Delia Perkins and Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight. The attorney said what did we say about calling names? She said I don’t don’t care I am going to say it.

Then at the end Mayor Everette-Oates said everyone present could enjoy the refreshments after a couple of presentations. See who got the presentations.

Meeting adjourned shortly before 6:00 PM.

Photos were taken off the walls in the Town Hall on last night I was told. See what Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight had imageto say about the pictures and also see what former Commissioner Linda Worsley had to say about the special called meeting.

Stay tuned for the swearing in of the new Mayor Bobbie D. Jones, new commissioners JoeRoam Myrick and Pamela Ransome.

Breaking News: Princeville NC – A Special Call Meeting Was Held Today At The Town Hall

Did you know?

Sources say a special call meeting was called today in Princeville saying it was going to be the regular monthly meeting but when the members arrived it was said it was a workshop. However some questioned how was it a workshop when no work was done.

Sources say Maggie Boyd interim Town Manager was suppose to read the  budget statement in full concerning the budget which included a tax increase, water/sewer increase and trash pickup increase. They think the Mayor probably told her not to read that part because everyone would know and scream. I am assuming those who read the paper because they didn’t know about the meeting.

Sources say Boyd was asked what is a debt service and she said it was something they use when the town are in debt. They say she was asked what was the human services line and she said it was for human services.

Sources say citizens and reporters should have gotten a copy if they wanted to be prepared for the public hearing. This way there will be no time to change it.

Sources say the regular monthly meeting has been moved from Monday, July 23, 2012 to Monday July 30, 2012. This is to take care of the 10 day public notice that must happen to present the budget to the citizens.

But what happened to probationary period that began Tuesday July 10 and will end on Tuesday, July 24? I would assume the deadline was set because they were suppose to meet on Monday July 23. Obviously they are asking LGC to move their deadline to Tuesday July 31.

The best thing they could do is to go on with the meeting next Monday July 23 so that they can have another week to deal with issues before July 31. But they think they are so smart.

Citizens of Princeville you better start asking some questions. From what I understand LGC didn’t ask them to do increases but that is something they said they would do on their own.

It looks like the Princeville 3 is in over their damn heads.

So will Victor Marrow file a lawsuit against them for slander? Oh that may be coming soon.

So there you have live and in full color from The DCN News Blog/Online TV the first in news in Edgecombe County.

Breaking News: Princeville 3 Has Rehired Attorney Charles Chuck Watts Again

Sources say the Princeville 3 Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Commissioners Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and Calvin Sherrod called a special meeting at 5:00 PM today to rehire Attorney Chuck Watts. The word is they re-hired him because no other attorneys applied and that they really needed an attorney. It is quite interesting to know that Attorney Watts attended the meeting.

Sources say Commissioners Gwendolyn Knight and Ann Howell knew about the called meeting but had no idea what the meeting was going to be about.

Several citizens attended the meeting to question the water bills but to find out they could not speak because it was a special call meeting.
