Nobody likes a bully, which makes it so puzzling that there seems to be so many of them. I’ve known more than a few. So have you.

WE CAN HOPE ...

Mr. Wright, thank-you for an outstanding column! We can hope that all the citizens in the 3rd ward read, heed & act upon your words on election day. Bill Hiemer

Unfortunately

We just held an election, and this is the result.

The Record is Clear

I do not know Mr. Brooks personally, and have never met him. However, I have read of his "shenanigans" time and again in the Daily Advance. Based soley on the "evidence" provided by this newspaper, Mr. Brooks IS INDEED a bully, and is most likely a racist. His actions both in Council and under color of his presumed "authority" cross the line, and the balance of the City Council should take action against him. If we are to judge men not by the color of their skin, but by their character, Mr. Brooks is plainly guilty of bullying.

Brooks should be removed.

I agree with everything Mr.Wright said,also Mr.Brooks owes the mayor a sincere apology for threatening to have him fired.Mr.Brooks has disgraced city council again.His fellow council members should remove him if they can. Sincerely,Vernon James III

Actually

He has threatened the City Manager.

Brooks

Wright is right. What Brooks fails to realize is when he shakes that finger he has 3 pointing back at him. And as for the "stomp out" dance !! It's obvious that he doesn' have a clue how to keep time nor do his Partners?-

River city

Kuddos to Bud Wright. This one I totally agree with. The only person that sounds racist is Brooks. For him it is always about race. Let's hope his ward wants to move forward and help make Elizabeth City a better community by electing someone to replace him.

FINALLY!

For the very first time I can applaud Bud for an outstanding opinion. Brooks is the shining example of what is wrong in our community - apathy among the voters. The Third Ward must find better representation.

Gosh. I agree with Bud - 100

Gosh. I agree with Bud - 100 per cent. Brooks is a vindictive human being, and transparently racist.

Thanks Bud!

Normally I do not agree with anything you say or wright. This time you are spot on. I have said it once, and I will say it again, Broods is not only a disgrace to his race but a disgrace to the human race. Now, if that is a racial comment, so be it. He would be a great councilman in DC. To the voters that voted for the idiot, WAKE UP!! If you don't, our city will resemble Detroit. And, if you haven't been there lately; go. That is your future. Elect persons with dignity and compassion for our community before it is gone.
