READ MORE:
 

BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Tempers flared at tonight's Bladen County Commissioners' meeting after commissioner Charles Peterson showed his disapproval of the board's no-vote in naming the emergency services building after former county Deputy Fire Marshall John Hall.

Hall died last November from a heart issue after getting sick while responding to a fire call.

Commissioner Delila Blanks said she was not familiar with Hall and wanted to consider other names for the building.

The measure failed in a 5-4 vote.

Bladen is Rotten to the Core

If you are a citizen of Bladen, you have no input whatsoever into county government.

As for naming the emergency services building after a former fire marshall, this is just another meaningless piece of business our elected officials can toss around. The commissioners are expert at wasting time and coming up with stupid "ideas."

The majority of Bladen County's citizens are fed up, and we want the county cleaned up--the environment cleaned up and the county government-- and we want responsible, dedicated, educated people elected to the board of commissioners.

We need jobs! Jobs! And we need them now.
