I find it quite interesting that folk are talking about money and how they want unity in Rocky Mount. They don’t want to support the Black Majority Council. They want to control how they are governing. They don’t want to see anything all things Black on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount.
So how much money was spent with Black Businesses during the Mayoral Campaign?
Sandy Claus could have blessed some Black Businesses or did he?
But see who Sandy Claus did bless last year.

CITIZENS FOR SANDY ROBERSON (ROBERSON, SANDY (NASH))
U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) and his wife, Margaret, were indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges they used $250,000 in campaign funds for personal use and filed false campaign finance reports with the Federal Election Commission to mask the spending.
The 48-page indictment details lavish spending from 2009 to 2016, including family vacations to Italy and Hawaii, home utilities, school tuition for their children, video games and even dental work. The San Diego Union-Tribune first identified the improper spending.
To conceal the spending, family dental bills were listed as a charitable contribution to “Smiles for Life,” the government alleges. Tickets for the family to see Riverdance at the San Diego Civic Theater became “San Diego Civic Center for Republican Women Federated/Fundraising,” according to the indictment. Clothing purchases at a golf course were falsely reported as golf “balls for the wounded warriors.” (Read more)
State House candidate Mark Bibbs tripled state Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield’s campaign spending this year despite raising about 40 percent less, figures show.
Bibbs supplemented the $18,000 he raised from donors with a $25,000 loan for total first-quarter proceeds of $43,000. He’s spent $70,000 on the House District 24 race, according to campaign finance reports released this week.
Beginning balances gave Bibbs the financial advantage — he opened his account with $61,643 in cash on hand, while Farmer-Butterfield started with $2,383.
The six-term Democratic state lawmaker raised $30,516 in the first quarter of 2014 and took out a $2,000 loan for total receipts of $32,518.
Former sheriff Wayne Gay and retired county manager Ellis Williford are backing Bibbs, while U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield and a consortium of state political action committees buoyed Farmer-Butterfield’s campaign. (Source: Read more)
