And this is not Wayne and the affirming poster , isn't well well well ; because i would have put "well well well" . And exactly what part of it didn't make sense to you , because if you need it dumbed down , I can make that possible . Or would you rather that I just call you a few names and call it a Hopewell Debate . ROTFLMAO . But seriously , since you're being honest ; Yolandas' posts compared to mine , that was a low blow but I expected at the least a rebuttal not just a butt and that definitely proves that beyond the slander and name calling that noone has any evidence against Wayne that makes him unsuitable for the position that he will more than likely be elected for . Maybe you'll say that Walnut or Peanut or Pecan or some other nut registered a lot of dead people on his behalf and he bought the vote but ACORN has been disbanded and I look forward to your future commentary as why you clowns didn't want the ringleader on the council in the first place . And for the record , Yolanda Stokes isn't even in the same class but she could propably do her little section some good ; the city needs public housing because they get a lot of money making up the difference of what the residents don't pay . That's why they keep those eyesores there . Come on people you really don't pay that much in taxes that you don't recover at the end of the year . Wayne has to be paying somewhere near 60,000 to 75,000 a year ; how many of you make that much a year ? So , stop trying (failing ) to comprehend what you couldn't fathom .

I attended a function last night for Yolanda Wyche-Stokes and her brother is an EX State Policeman, he spoke.

At the 20+ function there was over a 100 of us there, we had a nice time, and Ms. Stokes stayed with us, she showed us the ballots, and was nice to us.

I liked her. She gets our vote.

She told us about this site and what people were saying about us. I wanted to see for myself.

You don'tknow us, we are people too and like she said we are powerful because of our right to vote. We are voting.

Well, what you should probably do is consider voting for someone that has some integrity like Roosevelt Edwards. He's a black man.

Did he forget that he was also a Hopewell Police officer?

I do not know who he is. He didn't reach out to me, I guess he is afraid of a young black man. He probably think we don't vote, but I voted for Obama.

I followed Ms. Stokes today on her City Tour - Rock DA Vote, she gave me a T-Shirt.

She is really a nice lady, she reminds me of my mom. My mom says our mind is made up we are voting fo r her. My mom grew up with her, and went to school with her. She likes her and so do I.

30 years ago (or such) Wayne Taylor attempted to play slow pitch softball.......he was a catcher, and the plate umpire refused to work the game because he got tired of seeing Taylor's butt crack when he squatted to catch. The game was cancelled due to Taylor's team's coach refusing to move taylor from the catcher position...
