It takes votes! If everyone who has been on here that has had something to say goes and votes, Newbern might get the change its been needing for a long time.We all know that changing mayor and board is just a start, the change needs to continue throughout the departments in the city.

That's true,but with a new Mayor and Board they could take care of that easily.

I`ve heard Daniel Watson and John Flatt.
First things first is to not re-elect Bill Parks. Second thing is to not re-elect KW Dennison and the third is to FIRE Jason Roberts. Then you can start the petty cleanup like Barnes and so forth.

He did not take the money! The Newbern Historical Society was started so help preserve the Depot, promote Newbern, and to take over Depot Days. This was approved by the Mayor and the board. After the last election (which Dennison won by less than 100 votes), the mayor "fired" everyone who was a friend of Mr. Parker. including Mr. Parker from the Depot Committee. Now, remember, the NHS was started with the approval of the BOARD and MAYOR. The NHS was still in existence with the same members and chair. Dennison, in the mean time, was taking the Fire dept's street dance money and trying to get the money raised by the newbern saddle club..so he decided to get the money that the NHS raised during Depot Days. They refused..Dennsion spent $40,000 suing to get less than $10,000. Parker did not TAKE the money. The account contained the scholarship money won my Miss Depot Days. The NHS put on Depot Days without using any city money...where is the money coming from now? So, please be careful with the rumors.

I must say, I`ve been and still am friends with KW for a long time and have sopported him in every election in which he has participated, however, this year I will be voting for change. It`s not so much anything he has done, but I too, agree, it is time for Bill Parks to retire from the crooked politics. My understanding from some city employees is that Jason Roberts should be on his way out too.

For the last two years the Depot Days have been a flop. Why? Because the Mayor had the bright idea to charge for "big" name performers. They never raised enough money to cover the cost. Where did come from?
The mayor and his group have taken money and tried to blame it on Olen and all the others who started Depot Days. He wanted those who he knew did not have a clue what type of person he is to do all the work. We have had monies from the state and county to improve our city. Where did it go? Why do we have to pay for the sewage system not being upgraded and cleaned. Why does our water taste terrible? Why do I have to slam on my brakes every time a city worker pulls out in front of me? Why don't they stop and the red light downtown?

WE DO NOT NEED THESE PEOPLE IN OFFICE. GET THEM OUT!!!

If you had sense enough to read all the transcripts of the trial you would see that the judge ruled that he and the others were acting in good faith and doing what the city attorney had told them they should do therefore no wrong doing occured.

We need some new blood other than Parker. Maybe a educated Quality mgr or plant mgr from one of our plants. Any suggestions?

The only plt mgr and quality mgr I know are worst than present management of Newbern. We would soon be like Tatumville if they were elected

I predict Parker is going to beat KW this time and there is going to be cleaning that Mr. Clean wishes he was part of.
