Thank you bev for doing the right thing i want to
be critical and say what took so long you could have done this 43 days ago. I understand your postion about not allowing those guys to bully you
but a whole lot of people suffered in the mean time. You should be congratulated on doing the right thing I feel redeemed that my vote was not wasted on you. In the future never let anyone keep you from doing what you know in your heart was the right decision. Those bigwigs were not the ones suffering it was all those little people who put you there. Thank you, thank you, thank you, my faith has been restored.

“What happened to the help for the exhaustees and 99ers?? According to the NC Employment Security Office...Many exhaustees/ 99ers who were told to keep filing weekly since at least January of 2011...ARE NOT ELIGIBLE for help. Again exhaustees (people exhausted before the 99 weeks) plus the 99ers are not considered and have either lost homes, live in shelters or even on the streets. WHERE is the help for them?? If the government sees that the economy is struggling as bad as it is then why hasn't help been made to help those who have been BEGGING for help for several months to a year??”
