We want to take a few moments to update you on The Community Council and our plans regarding the “proposed” event center by the Rocky Mount City Council.
We now have signs stating our opposition to the proposed event center due to people having no vote and further financial drain on our fragile economy. Signs will be available if you would like to have one. Secondly, we have hired a firm to assist us with our efforts to better inform the public on why this project is such a bad idea for the taxpayers. We have hired the Raleigh firm, Strategic Partners Solutions. SPS is headed by two of the top NC issue management professionals in the state. Paul Shumaker and Dee Stewart are well-known for managing successful political campaigns and shaping public awareness on key issues impacting communities.
Our board is very excited that we were able to secure their assistance and rest assured you will be hearing a lot more from our organization in the near future as we move to better educate the public on why we believe the events center is not in the best interest of our community.
Feel free to contact us via email at info@TheCommunityCouncil.org or by filling out the form on our website.
