Princeville NC – Mayor Bobbie Darnell Jones Beat Out Yolanda Thigpen Whom Some Thought Was Going To Be A Close Race


The citizens of Princeville voted to give Mayor Bobbie Darnell Jones another 4 year term to carry on with his intentions of making “Princeville Great Again” as campaigned on 4 years ago after inheriting some mess. Mayor Jones has to add on to his campaign from 4 years ago now since the flood to make the town “Build Back Bigger, Better, Bolder!!”

I recognize and understand that anyone has the right to run for an elected office however I feel like the timing must always be right. I felt the timing was not right for all of the candidates that were trying to unseat Mayor Jones because I feel like he deserved another 4 years especially after the flood came in and set the town back.

I am proud of how Mayor Jones carried himself during the campaign because I strongly feel he took some cheap shots that were uncalled for and also were half-trues.

The November regular monthly town meeting ended the legacy of the Princeville 3 Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates, Mayor Pro-tem Isabelle Purvis-Andrews and Commissioner Calvin Sherrod. Yes I named them the Princeville 3 several years ago when they began to show their ignance shortly after being elected to serve the citizens of Princeville.

Well I knew they would go out showing just how ignant they are but damn you would think they would realize that the people have spoken and that they didn’t need to attempt to do anything tonight but to act like they had some damn sense. See for yourself how they went out together just like they came in together.

I bid the Princeville 3 farewell because it was embarrassing and disgusting for the type of behavior that has been shown over the past 4 years. Commissioner Sherrod tried to change paths late in the game but it was a bit too late.

Next month will begin the healing process for Princeville. I feel confident that the Mayor Elect Bobbie D. Jones and the other newly elected commissioners JoRoam Myrick and Pamela Ransome along with the 2 seasoned commissioners Ann Howell and Gwendolyn Knight will make Princeville great again.
