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)
