Bell for District 3


Tuesday, October 17, 2017

As we begin to tune in to the local city elections that are currently underway, we must take note of each candidate’s political background and thought processes before we cast our ballots this November. We must ask ourselves what do we want for the future of Greenville. Do we want our city to be encompassed in partisan politics that has ridiculed neighboring communities in our state lately or do we want Greenville to continue to make tangible progress toward becoming the epicenter of eastern North Carolina by leaving the political hoopla out of our city’s limits?

Having been fortunate enough to serve as District 3 representative on the Greenville City Council over the past two years, I can say firmly that what our city needs more of is thoughtful, independent leadership. That is why I will be supporting Will Bell to be my successor.

Will Bell has shown tremendous character and thoughtful leadership ever since I met him many years ago. He has dived headfirst into our community by making smart, pragmatic decisions while serving on the Planning and Zoning Commission. He has joined the cause in Greenville’s fight to recruit new, talented individuals to town while also placing a strong emphasis on retaining our best and brightest young professionals. He has invested his time and planted his future in Greenville with the purchase of his historical, nniversity neighborhood home as well.

Will is an individual who will hear both sides of every story before casting a vote. He will look out for the best interests of every citizen in Greenville and will make steady progress for our city to benefit from. I encourage you to get out and vote this November and to support Will Bell for the 3rd District seat on the Greenville City Council.

Brett Kavanaugh is the wrong choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. If he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, everything that we hold dear as a nation will be at stake.

From a protecting a woman’s right to choose to dismantling the Affordable Care Act, Kavanaugh could…

The recent article about State Treasurer Dale Folwell and the ECU Physicians-Vidant Health merger perplexes me.

I’m not a health care professional, business executive or attorney— just a North Carolina taxpayer. So maybe I’m dense or ill informed. But why did the article say…

A president under investigation for colluding with a foreign power (and known enemy of the United States) should not be allowed to appoint Supreme Court justices.

When that president picks a nominee who has stated that sitting president should not be subject to indictment nor subjected to civil…

From time to time the idea of a pedestrian bridge across the Tar River to River Park North is mentioned. For example, a Reflector article in 2016 estimated the price of such a bridge at $7 million-$20 million dollars! That price tag scares many citizens off. That's a shame because River Park North…

I have a theory that a couple of the daily Bless Your Heart contributors are the same Looney Tunes that respond on reflector.com. I can’t be sure because they hide under anonymity. For example is the BYH that there was no federal law that required or suggested family separation before…

There is a lot of misinformation regarding single-payer health plans, and Albert Hunt’s column in the Sunday Daily Reflector did nothing to clear the air. His remarks regarding the health care system were both inaccurate and off the mark. Hunt referred to the proposed single-payer system as…

Amid the headlines of migrant children being separated from their parents and guardians, there is the stark reality of human beings wrenched from each other. When it is your neighbor, co-worker, or fellow church member, then it becomes “up close and personal.” Maybe that’s…

I just saw Walter B. Jones’ Facebook post congratulating himself for participating in Kinston's naturalization ceremony. He was very quick to stress how proud he was of people going "through the legal process" of becoming a citizen.

So my question for him, and for my other representatives:…

Do you think the Capital Gazette whose publishers ranted and raved about their dedication to the public should have realized that alleged mass murderer Jarrod Ramos was mentally unstable to say the least?

They should have called the first available psychologist or psychiatrist to assist them, or at…

Why is it when Dewey Funkhouser writes in the DR, he can’t get his point across without attacking Christians. Doesn’t matter what subject he comments on, it’s always the Christians’ fault.

He tries, with little success, to compare what President Trump does with illegal…
