the next two to three years are critical for Nash County going full steam ahead for progress and planned growth. whatever changes need to happen to get it accomplished or at least to try, is in their power. Edgecombe/rocky mount needs to be putting more effort to standing on its own and seeking out ways to rebuild and grow without interfereing in nash county growth and responsible tax policies/spending. like it or not, there does come time for change and fresh ideas/connections and for one generation to retire. the train's pulling out, full steam ahead, don't look back and all aboard for nash county planned growth and business recruitment. if Edgecombe still wants to pull in another direction, let them get on board another train.


It is time for change. My question is: Who is next? Come on boys! Get rid of another one you worked with for years! (or maybe they will get rid of you)
