June 4th Elections

To those of you that i have spoken to over the past few days. Thank you for showing me that there is still hope for this city. It still has a heartbeat. If you will put feet to your visions, Lumberton can be revived. It's not going to be easy, but it can be done. But in order to make it work, you have to do your part. If you aren't registered to vote, go register. The only way to effect a change is to vote. You can't stay home and vote. Many of you haven't voted for years. June 4th, make it a priority to go out and vote. It's one of the greatest privileges we have in this country. If you want change, prove it at the polls. You have no right to complain about the shape this city is in if you don't get out and vote. After all, this is your city. To the citizens of Ward 1. I secured more than enough signatures to qualify to run for Alderman. I could have gotten more, but i ran out of paper. Thank you to those of you who sat and spoke with me about your concerns. That is what an Alderman does. He goes out into his ward and listens to his people on the matters that they find important. I will make you one promise and one promise only. If elected, I will NEVER insult your intellegence by promising you something that i am not 100% sure that i can deliver on. I will do everything i can and that all i can do. i will be at your disposal day or night. As Alderman, my job will be to serve you, not the other way around. Jerry L. Walters, Sr.  (Feb 4, 2013 | post #1)

Shows how much you know about the reorganized Lumberton Fire Department. Everyone on the department that drives a truck is required to have a valid drivers license and they have to submit to a background check. They are also required to take a drug test within the first 3 days. This isn't the same ole fire department  (Aug 5, 2010 | post #4)

Fire Chief

I heard that the Mayor & Board of Aldermen are trying to start trouble with the fire department again. When will enough be enough? Are they mad because they have no control over the department? Is it a personal vendetta against Chief Johnnie Grant? Is it because of recent dismissals of certain firefighters? There has to be a reason. Lumberton is the only city around here having problems with it's fire department. Maybe it's because it's not a City department. It is contracted to the city. Whatever the problem, it needs to be resolved because we are in real danger of losing our fire department and First Responders. What will happen then. Leave Chief Johnnie Grant and the Lumberton Fire Department alone. Like Alderman Quincy Rogers said, "IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!"  (Jul 8, 2009 | post #1)

Lumberton Mayor

Why can't the citizens of Lumberton just shut up & grow up? It seems like we all got along better when we were kids! The reason we can't accomplish anything here is because it makes us feel big to belittle someone else. What a fine example we are setting for our children & Grandchildren!It is up to us to change the course of this town. I have watched this town slowly die over my lifetime and noone seems to care. They only care about themselves and what they can get out of it. If you don't love Lumberton enough to get out and vote for change, you should keep your mouth shut. You don't have a right to say anything! The saying "One Lumberton" is a joke! It's amazing to me to watch how "Christians " act at a board meeting and see what they say online. YOU know who you are. We can change Lumberton but WE have got to do it TOGETHER! How can 2 walk together lest they be agreed  (Mar 25, 2009 | post #22)
