VICTIM OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND RETALIATION FROM CITY OF ROCKY MOUNT ASSISTANT MANAGER RECEIVES SUPPORT FROM HUNDREDS AND A CALL FOR ACTION AND PROTEST AT CITY HALL IS SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 11th.
Today I had a lengthy conversation with Jacqueline Barnes. Barnes is the victim in a sexual harassment and retaliation claim against the Assistant Manager Elton Daniels for the City of Rocky Mount.
Jacqueline recorded a story back in July with WRAL and it aired last night. It took several months for it to air due to the delay in response from the city.
Many, and when I say many, I mean hundreds of people have reached out since the story aired last night and expressed their support for Jaqueline and have expressed their concerns about the city leadership.
A protest and call for action is planned for October 11th at City Hall in Rocky Mount. She and her supporters are asking for the removal of Assistant Manager Daniels and City Manager Small-Toney.
Supporters will also speak at the council meetings and voice their concerns over what they call “an abuse of power” and ”conduct unbecoming” and will ask for the removal of both leaders.
Here is the story that aired last night
