Tarboro council hears report on ex-town manager’s expenditures – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator Response: Interesting! Oh well! I remember the former Daily Southerner reported on this issue last year.

TARBORO – State and town investigations into travel and expense records and purchasing practices of former Town Manager Sam Noble continued Tuesday during a meeting of the Tarboro Town Council.

The only item on the meeting’s agenda was a report to the council from the N.C. Office of the State Auditor.

Immediately after calling the meeting to order, Mayor Rick Page requested a motion to go into closed session to hear the report. After the report, council members came out of closed session and adjourned without taking any action. (Source: Rocky Mount Telegram)

Tarboro NC – Report: Noble misappropriated funds – Daily Southerner

Response: Here we go. Ok so now it is all adding up. Remember the Town Mayor Donald Morris resigned last month. The rumor mill seems to have turned out to be some truth that an investigation was being done. So the previous Mayor and town council should be able to respond to this. Oh well it appears that Princeville is not the only town that will be in the news now.

An independent certified fraud examiner hired by the Town of Tarboro has concluded that former town manager Sam Noble may have made more than 300 questionable purchases that were reimbursed by the town. The value of the items submitted for reimbursement exceeded $130,000 and took more than 30 pages to list according to a copy of the report  obtained by The Daily Southerner. (More)
