Tarboro NC – The Tarboro Town Mayor & Town Council Ward 7 Appointees Have Opposition Along With Town Council Ward 1 In The Upcoming Municipal Election

Joseph Pitt was appointed Mayor of Tarboro after the former mayor resigned. Al Braxton former policeman is seeking to replace Joe Pitt. I can’t wait to see what Braxton is going to campaign on.

Wow! Carl Benson is challenging Othar Woodard in Ward 1. That would be a disgrace because Benson used to be on Tarboro 27886 showing just how racist he was. If I am correct he was kicked off.

Sabrina Bynum Pettaway Ward 7 was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Taro Knight. Rev. Roy Gray Sr. and Quincy Robinson are seeking to replace Ward 7. I wonder did these guys sit down with Sabrina and talk to her about the seat? I can’t wait to see what these guys are going to campaign on.

Makes no damn sense that the Edgecombe County Democratic Party did not talk about the upcoming municipal elections to see if all the seats up that the party tried to encourage some Democrats to seek the seats. There is no reason why these Republicans do not have any opposition unless no one would step forward.
