Brenda Pelham and Roosevelt Edwards voted against the the rehab of the Hopewell Yacht Club.

Reason?

They have both been quoted as saying "Black people don't have boats".

These are racists comments and these people should be called out on it.

These two people are up for re election and should be ask to explain this obscene statement.

People that serve on council are elected by the people of their respective ward but are elected to serve all citizens of Hopewell.

Their comments are racist which suggests that the people that made them are racists.

Where are people? How come no one has mentioned this but me?

Are you paying attention?

how'd In the Know get ahold of edwards bill? That isn't public knowledge just public BS. If you have evidence then file complaint like REPLY said....don't start crap with no proof

council minuets say Pelham didn't want marina cause city needed to finish Beacon first and we were not sure how much that was gonna cost city!! Really? we just spent 4 million and that ain't gonna be enough? Rob us somemore?! Edwards said he was not for one bid on Marina then hiring contractor if we didn't know if we were getting the best deal especially if it was same contractor that was only bid on Beacon too. Sorry but I think that is good question.

Sounds as if the GOBs are spreading lies around town again. They don't like Mr. Edwards, so they are out to discredit him.
