Tales of an Educated Debutante Pittman vs. Knight

imageSo who pulling your strings? This dude ain’t no threat to to this election. Love it when because you and the other Special Cs don’t like Tarrick Pittman you just hate Andre Knight. Funny to me. I do know that Tarrick voting record could be challenged because he voted in Nashville in November 2018 but on record in the Rocky Mount Telegram in March saying he had lived in Edgecombe County for over a year. Support dude but quit lying on Andre because you are a living lie just like Tarrick.

Pittman vs. Knight

If you live in my hometown of Rocky Mount, you know that there is hope coming to Ward One.

Tarrick Pittman, a native of Rocky Mount, has filed to run to represent Ward 1 on the Rocky Mount City Council. Andre Knight has been in office since 2003 and for sixteen years he has used race to tear the city apart while building his own empire. Since then, poverty has risen 55% in Ward One.

Tarrick Pittman spent twenty five years in the corporate world before heading back home and opening his own business in downtown Rocky Mount. As for his running for Council?

He says, “I want to see our city continue to grow and prosper. I will work towards policies that allow for rational and responsible development. My passion is bringing people together, working towards a common purpose and doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.”

It’s quite the opposite of what Knight has done. Rather than look forward or make the town better, he chastises those who call out his self indulgent behavior where he profits financially from his council decisions.

Today, he said, “Just come out and say that you don’t like black leadership….you don’t like the east part of our city to grow and flourish…..you don’t like a diverse city workforce….you don’t like a black man or woman leading you into a brighter future!”

Since when does color have anything to do with leadership ability?

Run, Tarrick, run.

Press Release: Friday, July 12, Andre’ Knight, Rocky Mount City Council Representative for Ward One, will file for re-election at 1 pm in Edgecombe County

This was forwarded to the Rocky Mount Telegram but it was not released

Rocky Mount, NC– On Friday, July 12, Andre’ Knight, Rocky Mount City Council Representative for Ward One, will file for re-election at 1 pm in Edgecombe County. Knight said that “I have served the residents of Ward 1 since 2003 with honor, integrity, vision and strength. Benign neglect, disinvestment and general unbelief in the power and potential of inner-city residents have hampered our growth as a County and as a City. Since the day of my first election, I pledged to speak truth to power to fight for a better life for our Ward residents and to make all of Rocky Mount better. I have lived up to my commitment and I am ready to continue the progress that has been hard fought and that is finally beginning to come to reality.”

Robert Davis, Ward 1 resident and the Knight Campaign Manager stated, “Councilman Knight has been vilified and viciously attacked. When the dots are connected, it’s easy to see that there is a concern that progress is actually occurring in places that no one ever dreamed possible. I support Andre’ because he is not just about talking about change and progress, but he is leading the change and taking the hits for us all.”

Knight continued “since I have been on this Council, I have consistently advocated for more and better housing in inner city neighborhoods, workforce training for residents who are ready to work, business development in east Rocky Mount and entrepreneurial development and support for our residents who have dreams, ideas and willing to work hard to have a better way of life.” Knight is a small business owner and entrepreneur and has operated family owned businesses in Rocky Mount since 1996.

“I support downtown development for everyone, not just rich and privileged business owners. We need them too and I’m willing to support projects that make sense for all citizens. I am a vocal and passionate advocate for downtown housing for all income groups, especially those who work every day, pay their bills and still cannot afford decent and contemporary housing. I support the current downtown hotel and parking lot proposal before us now. That project will lift Rocky Mount and strengthen Edgecombe County. We need it to move us to become a more robust and competitive small city” Knight contended.

Robert Davis concluded that “Knight is unbossed and unbought. Big money and pressure from people who have a problem with seeing everyone succeed and have a voice has not and will not influence Andre’s voice and mindset. He is a man of the people and is moved to make things happen for the least of these. That is why I support him.”

A kick off event will occur at the Knight Re-Election Headquarters at 109 Tarboro Street at 6 pm on Friday the 12th. Campaign supporters and volunteers are welcome to attend.

Knight files for re-election to council – Rocky Mount Telegram (LJK)

The Political Agitator’s response: I owe Lindell John Kay an apology. I got confused with reading where Tarrick Pittman had filed on his personal page. LJK had not done an article on Pittman. I have contacted LJK and apologized to him. However I stand behind the other information included. Again my guy LJK I apologize.

You know I try to deal with my guy Lindell John Kay but damn this was the filing day for Andre Knight but look at all of this b.s. talking about Tarrick Pittman. There is no mention of the court case pending with Pittman because he has not paid the city for space on Douglas Block and claim he has money in an escrow account but sources say he told them that he does not and he does not have a lawyer. Look at the Community Council page and see how Lige Daughtridge founder of the page highlighted Pittman comments because it is his desire to get Andre out. Lige just told me on Tuesday that I was giving him a hard time and not being fair to him on social media. I said why and he couldn’t really respond. I said you post and allow b.s. on your page as fact and don’t make corrections. He said he miss some things he can’t monitor his page all the time. What a lie because he should get notifications every damn time someone post on his page. However he should check it daily and if he miss it when they 1st comment then he should get it later in the day. But look at the page today how he highlighted Tarrick in the link to Andre’s filing. Black Folk y’all better be woke and see who the Evil doers are that several Special Cs called the Black Leaders during the Public Comments at the Council meeting on Monday night. These Special Cs also mentioned voo doo as well as they spoke about the Black council members.

TARBORO — Rocky Mount Councilman Andre Knight filed to run for re-election on Friday while surrounded by supporters at the Edgecombe County Board of Elections.

Knight and nearly 30 Twin Counties municipal candidates filed this week, joining the two dozen candidates who filed on July 5. The candidate filing period lasts until noon on July 19.

The Nash County Board of Elections is considering extending the deadline. The board will discuss the matter at its Wednesday meeting.

Knight thanked his supporters who showed up for his filing, including Rocky Mount mayoral candidate Bronson Williams and Ward 3 candidate Nellene Richardson.

“We don’t want to go backwards, we want to go forward,” Knight said.

After filling out the required paperwork and paying the filing fee, Knight said, “It’s official,” to applause from the crowd packed into the elections office.

Knight’s campaign manager Robert Davis said they have their work cut out for them, but it is necessary work.

“Andre sees the same vision we see,” Davis said. “We know he will work for us.” (Read more)

Andre Knight Vs Roosevelt Higgs Residency Challenge An Historical Moment

Where have these folk been that live on Edgecombe County side that is talking about running for a seat on the Rocky Mount City Council? I have not seen you at meetings over the years. Oh but I suppose to just give you a free ride but I have been putting the work in trying to make Edgecombe County a better place to live, work and play by trying to make sure we get good elected officials.

But Roosevelt has not lived in Speed since the 1999 flood because he was living with his mother and her house got flooded. She moved to the E. L. Roberson Center in Tarboro and he stayed with her.

For the past 2 years or more Roosevelt has been living in Rocky Mount on the Nash County side still saying he lives in Speed.

He kept mess going on in the Edgecombe County Democratic Party all of these years but some Black Folk have allowed it to happen especially the folk in Speed that serve in the precinct with him but on top of that he has been chairing the party over the years and then the damn fools just re-elected him chair again during the recent Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Convention. Funny to me!

A moment in history! Knight vs Higgs

The Talk About What Happened At The Rocky Mount City Council Meeting On Monday April 22 Lige Daughtridge and Councilman Andre Knight

Mayor David Combs said that it was the right of the citizens to come down and address the council. Well hell yeah they should be able to come and address the council but to come and tell lies on a council person is a bit much. Watch how these Special Cs and atleast one black female Gwen Wilkins showed their asses. Gwen hollered out point of order as if she was a council member. Look at this mess for yourself. But then these Special Cs go to their social media sites such as Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens who block black folk when they speak out against their lies. They post on Lige Daughtridge’s page Community Council, Fighting Crime, WHIG-TV social media page and on their TV morning and now night shows along with some individual sites like Keith Harris former fire chief. It is a damn shame these Special Cs have been on lynch mode since the council have been a black majority. They are just big mad. Anyone who watch this video and allow the Special Cs to sway your opinion of the council when they come and attack them and then play victim when the council respond to them, you got a serious problem just like the attackers. They come meeting after meeting talking about the same old b.s. so to keep talking about some things will make it true? Yep it will make it appear so if no one is saying anything but the attackers. I am for justice no matter who it is for or against but I don’t if I am for bullying and I don’t give a damn if you are white, black, brown or other.

Wow! Unbelievable! First Day In A Many Of Days No Negative Article In The Rocky Mount Telegram About Black City Council Members And/Or City Staff

First day in a many of days that there is no negative article in the Rocky Mount Telegram about the Rocky Mount Black city council members and/or city staff.

Oh I am quite sure they are waiting on the audit report. Sure hope that turns out well because I want to see how the Special Cs move forward after all of this.

I hope the findings turn out in favor of all of those whom have been accused of mess by the Special Cs whose mission is to remove Councilmen Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell along with the City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney and some staff members.

I am quite sure there may be some findings but I hope they are something that can be a teachable moment and steps put in place to critique how the city move forward.

However in spite of all that has been going on the lynching of certain black folk even some community activist including myself, that this be a wake up call for unconscious black folk who have no clue of what is going on because all they are hearing is the Special Cs pushing their mission. The Special Cs try to silence anyone who call them out on their b.s. Them cowards are something else.

But God is good and he has not brought us this far to leave us.

Waiting on audit report so we can move forward.
