BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) — One Boiling Spring Lakes resident is simmering mad at the city’s mayor and says she has many reasons why.

Natascha Yarolin says Mayor Richard White has a vendetta for the Boiling Spring Lakes Police Department. She says her husband got caught in the crossfire, and she won’t stand for it.

Yarolin says this is not the first problem Mayor White has had with the police department, and she is afraid if she does not say anything, it will not be the last.

“Everyone’s gonna know what this man is really about and all his skeletons he’s tried so hard to hide in the closet,” Yarolin said. “I’m gonna reveal them.”

Yarolin says she will not stop until justice is served. She says White is corrupt and spiteful, and she has had enough.

“He overstepped his boundaries in his position,” she said. “He has a lot of people snowballed into thinking that he is out for the public, for the citizens of Boiling Springs, but if you read this, he obviously does not care. It’s a personal vendetta for him.”

Yarolin says when she made requests to the city for public e-mails from the mayor, she was given blacked out copies. When she compared those copies to e-mails she had gotten in 2010, she saw that the section that was blacked out was about her husband and how the mayor did not want him considered for a job with the city’s police department.

The older copy of the messages shows White says Yarolin’s husband Paul has a criminal history and that the city didn’t need any bad press. He continues that Paul Yarolin has a probation violation, so he should not be considered.

Yarolin says her husband has never had a probation violation and that he was even cleared by Training and Standards in Raleigh to serve as a police officer anywhere in the state, so the mayor’s reasoning is hollow.

She says the mayor continually tries to attack the police department, from attempting to get the police chief fired for misusing his vehicle to stating that the department misused funds. Yarolin says this is the icing on the cake. She says White is abusing his power as mayor, and she will work until something is done to stop it.

“I came up with all of this in a week. One week,” Yarolin said. “Imagine what I can do in a month, ’cause it’s there. I’ve already got phone calls out. It’s there.”

Yarolin says she is going to the Boiling Spring Lakes City Council meeting tonight to confront the mayor and pass out information and documents she has found.

We spoke with Mayor White by phone today. He says he has nothing against the police department and is not aware of the issues with Yarolin and her husband.

We are going the meeting tonight and plan to speak with the mayor.

Everyone Is always worried about the he said she said! And I understand this is just politics in general, But really this is a small area that’s nice and quiet. Everyone for the most part gets along and minds there business. So why don’t we focus on who is going to put the effort in to improving Boiling springs and whats best for all the people living in this community. We are all human and have dirty little secrets, I am not much of a voter b/c of this kinda stuff right here!!! This nonsense that has nothing to do with the issues at hand. What are the potential mayor’s going to do for the community the spillway to save the lake that is boiling springs lakes, lower taxes etc.. I don’t know about everyone else but I want to know who is going to make the decision that effect my pocket. Not who has a criminal record and couldn’t get a job as a Boiling springs cop, and who told lies on who. I really don’t know what the situation is and none of us probably ever will know the whole story. Which the Whole police dept. seems corrupt and that really is just sad considering nothing really goes on as far as crime around here, I guess that’s what boredom leads to… poor decision making. It’s a sad world out there and all of you are feeding into this, you are just as bad as this lady plastering signs everywhere!! Please make your decision based on something other then this nonsense. I want to make this clear I am not a supporter of Richard White or Craig Caster but am making my choice based on the ISSUES at hand and the options given. Hope there is someone else out there in this confusion that feels like we are getting way off track!!!!

The emails didn’t state anything but the truth, he HAS a record! Has he tried to apply at other law enforcement agencies? NONE will hire because of his record, NOT just BSL. Seems Mrs. Yarolin should have done her homework first. Also seems by some of the comments she is a drama queen and an instigator. If BSL has a problem with their mayor, they should have picked a better spokeswoman than this whiner! Maybe WWAY got it right this time, NOT NEWSWORTHY!!!!

Whaawaa and cry cry…..there you have it people! These comments and guest names are typical of the people who vote for mayors and commissioners to run your city of BSL. Not too intelligent, right? Hope you can do better next time…..(not to mention they got rid of a good City Manager!)…….what a shame

whaawhaa whaaa

Hubby does dope. Hubby gets caught. Hubby wants a job as a cop. Mayor tells blind city mangager to check record. Hubby does not get hired. Now, Wify drives the whamulance and you can now hear it all over the county. Whaaa whaa whaa whaa….

There is a reason this is now on page 4 or 5 of the news. No one cares about the crybaby that is having to live with his and now her own doing. The only thing that is really a shame. The guy just may be a pretty decent guy that got caught years ago and now ‘wify’ has made sure every person in the county knows about his past. That does not change the fact he should have been refused the job. It only changes everyone now sees the laundry that really did not have to be hung out about him but, his wife did that.

Why do we have the commissioners? Why did someone have to come in from out of town to “help” hire a new city manager? Why are we getting a stranger in here to help? Nothing against the guy from Raleigh, just a question. Another question…why are we getting a spillway to save the ice cream shoppe from flooding? It is going to raise your taxes TRIPLE people!! There are a lot of things to think about!!! Do your homework, people!!
