January 22, 2018
Tammy Childers, Executive Director, Eastern Carolina Workforce Development Board, recently presented an update on the Board’s activities to the Craven County Commissioners.
Among other things in her introduction, Ms. Childers stated that she was tasked to measure the success of the Board.  That was the last time she mentioned anything about successes.
What she did say is that Eastern Carolina workforce Development has an annual budget of $5.6 million dollars and a full time work force of five (5) employees!  She also gave a lot of demographic data you can find many other places at much less cost.  She discussed the “STEM” programs in the community colleges and high schools in glowing terms, as if that Board had invented it.  However, she said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAMS!  She provided no data on the number of jobs the people they have “assisted” have gained.  In fact, she acknowledged the lower than state averages of employment for their “service” area.
Commissioner Liner pointed out that she had not provided any such data, and I thought to myself, “PLEASE, GEORGE, HIT THAT HARD!”  Sadly, he dropped the subject after a short remark.  What a shame.  Commissioner Jones asked, “Why is unemployment increasing?”  If he got a straight answer, I did not hear it.
Judging from their funding of boards such as this one, the Craven County Board of Commissioners seems hell bent on providing us with a big, expensive, unproductive government!
Respectfully submitted,
Hal James
CCTA Watchdog Committee Chairman

UPDATE! – Election Irregularities in NC

Major David Goetze (pronounced gets) will give an update on his efforts to expose possible voter fraud and his attempts to reconcile the anomalies he discovered in the 2016 election results data he found on the State Board of Elections website. Efforts to expose voter fraud are ongoing in many states across the country and Major Dave will share what he has learned. An example of the impact that voter fraud could have can be easily understood from the following example:

At  a recent Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Elections meeting, a presentation was given by Mrs. Kim Strach, Executive Director of the State Board of Elections, on the recent local/municipal elections just concluded.

The most significant data revealed was that in those local elections, 109 contest across the state were decided by 10 or fewer votes. 59 of those were decided by 5 or less. A few were decided by only one vote, which raised the issue of the statutory requirement for margins of victory to be within a small percentage in order to trigger a recount. Even that one vote is not sufficient under that statute in some small localities that have a low turnout of less than 100 people to meet even a 1% threshold, so the SBoE is asking the Committee to consider a change to the current statute to address this.

Your Participation in the process is essential. Please come and learn how you can make a difference!
