First of all, it is Lyburn. Spell it correctly.

Second of all, he did not run for reelection. He ran, as a write-in, for mayor. He was trying to be appointed to the town council and was not appointed.

It had nothing to do with skin color and everything due to the fact he could have run for reelection and chose to not run for town council again.

The NAACP has nothing to do with CB politics and has no right to investigate the town council.

I have to add. I think Burkett Lyburn is a fantastic man and did a good job on council.

Next time there is an election, or appointment, to council I hope to see him try again.

Ive been talking to some of my neighbors and close friends of Mr. Lebern and the overall consensus is he was not re-elected due to skin color. There is some talk of bringing in the NAACP to investigate the process and interview some of the council members.
Get a life. Go start your trouble somewhere else. You obviously don't know much about him or our town. You can't even get his name right! Why not have attended the interview and listened to the applicants. The other two far surpassed Mr. Burkett Lyburn, but the one selected seemed to have an edge on the second one. People need to stop playing the race card.

I know Burkett and I'm quite positive he did not invite the NAACP to investigate this. I doubt this story is true anyway. We have had african-american members of Council (Mrs.(Katey?)Jones, Burkett) school board (Burkett's wife, Patrice) and Charles Garland served as Mayor. If I left anyone out I apologize...my memory isn't as good as it once was.

I will be in town later this week to start an inquiry into these acquisitions. We will then lead a march to town hall Thursday to protest the council members and there actions. If you would like more information contact the NAACP website
