A Lie Don't Care Who Tell It
While in court, I learned that Mayor Ben Winston instructed city personnel to monitor my blog and print copies of every one of my blog posts. That sounds like a waste of resources. Has the expense of printing daily postings and comments posted on the Lumberton Informer been added to the budget? In case you were wondering, Winston is more concerned about what I post instead of obtaining jobs, businesses and grants for the City of Lumberton. No wonder things are not getting done because people are assigned to follow what I post instead of doing their jobs. Somehow, I think they would do so even if they were not directed to do so. What's that phrase about misery loving company. In court, they were trying to make my blog about one person but my blog focuses on various aspects of Lumberton including but not limited to the what happens at city hall. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you want positive things posted then do something positive. Since the premise of the case against me was based on calling an individual an incompetent liar then I would like to go on record and state that Mayor Ben Winston and Alderman Tommy Dukes are liars and they're incompetent. Maybe next time, they will file a case against me and not hide behind a dirty slip. Speaking of dirty slips, I contacted the Army Corp of Engineers to get details about who has possession of the $2.5 million dollar sewer grant since the City of Lumberton didn't have the $625,000 in matching funds that's required to secure the grant. Unlike Winston, when I speak to someone, I have proof. Below is the letter responding to my request and I should have their answer within the next 7-10 days. According to Ben Winston, they were going to start work in September but he move to date to some undisclosed date in 2016. At some point, people should realize that this is a dangling of the carrot trying to get people to vote for him because he know we cannot get the grant.
I've been collecting some of the comments used in court and I will post them when the blog is cleared in the next two weeks. It's time to take off the gloves and take this blog to another level. If you were offended by my other posts, it would behoove you to stay off the Lumberton Informer after November 3, 2015. By then, Ben Winston will have lost his bid to become District 2 Supervisor and I will be free to blog without restrictions. At this moment, I'm researching Initiative 42 so I can give some details about this voting measure. Within the next week, I'm planning on hanging out at the Shell Station around midnight to find out what's going on and I'm going through videos so I can post them for the next 14 days. Oh. While in court, there was testimony given that claimed I was disruptive during the meetings. Those of you that saw the videos know that's not true. I guess my presence is what's disruptive. I was also called intimidating but if you're intimidated by my writings then that's your cross to bear. But rest assured, the blog is going to another level and no stone will be left unturned. Another matter I must address due to questions that were asked while I was on the stand. I'm writing letters to Attorney General Jim Hood and State Auditor Stacey Pickering since I used their names as tags for search engine optimization. Hopefully, my letters will bring more attention to the things going on here in the City of Lumberton. Stay tuned because you ain't seen nothing yet.
