It has become evident the citizens of Robeson County no longer have a voice as to what goes on in this county; this is unfortunate since, we the citizens, are the ones who not only pay taxes, which pay the salaries of county employees, etc,. but the county commissioners work for the citizens.
We do not work for them; apparently many are not aware of this since so many county issues are decided behind “closed doors” and the citizens are never given an opportunity for their input. It is now time for a county manager to be hired/appointed and we the citizens need to make certain we are given an opportunity to have input as to the selection of the county manager who will be in charge of “running this county” so to speak.
A committee is being formed of citizens who would like to become active in making certain the county manager, county commissioners, Health Department and other appointed/elected officials become aware they can be replaced and the time for us to stand up is now. If you are interested in assisting with the plans to give the citizens of Robeson County back their voices, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (910)674-4994. It is time to make certain the organization chart for Robeson County is adhered to properly, which clearly has the “citizens” at the top of the chart and that the county is not run in the helter-skelter manner it has been for much too long.
