Video/Photos: Edgecombe County Commissioners Passes Budget 4-3 Down Racial Lines Voting For A 3.5% Tax Increase And No Reduction In Force

The Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners continued a recessed meeting on Monday June 30, 2014 7 PM. The meeting was called to order followed by a prayer.

During the Public Hearing with a standing room only and citizens sitting in the hallway listening to the comments via speakers in the hallway. One side of the room was a majority of School Administrators and the other side was Department of Social Services Administrators. Several citizens from both sides of the room and a couple from the hallway spoke out against the most recent proposed budget that had been on display to be voted on last night. All of the speakers asked the commissioners to reconsider the budget proposal on the table.

See the comments and the motions that were made, motions that died due to a lack of a 2nd and withdrawal of support. I feel the last motion that was made was the best motion and it pass 4-3 along racial lines. I strongly support the vote and I am still trying to figure out what the 3 commissioners whom voted against the motion interest they had in mind because it damn sure was not the county employees. However it was evident they wanted to make sure they looked out for the school system and didn’t give a damn about the Department of Social Services. It is evident that the majority of the school employees are white and the majority of the Department of Social Services are black. But that should not have been an issue because they ought to have been concerned about all of the employees.
