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 — A Sept. 12, 2013, story published on the website and on the front page of The Daily Southerner about the review and analysis of travel and expense records from July 2006 to June 2011 of former Town Manager Sam Noble incorrectly characterized the conclusion of a report produced by Jackson Investigations and provided to the Tarboro Town Council. The headline should have read, “Report questions purchases by Noble”. The report did not conclude that Noble misappropriated funds. We apologize for the error. (More)
