What part of...

What part of funding for Pasquotank County Social Services does the city contribute? And of course, Perry is all for contributing. It's an election year and he's up for re-election. Gots ta appease dem woters!

How about the $4,500?

Instead of wasting $4,500 on a lawyer for an unnecessary investigation of the Mayor and City Manager, the funds could be spent here.

The county isn't any more capable

of running this shelter than the city. They need to turn it over to the Tabernacle of Faith group. As a historical fact, the church has always done a better job with benevolence than the government.

I hope the county steps up to the plate.

It is hard for politicians to be kind to each other but, in this case they must. I wish a campaign would ensue to involve the public and the churches. We have to help the "least of these." NIV County and city homeless must be accepted.
