Again, I want to take this opportunity to say Thank You to the voters of Rocky Mount who supported my campaign.  I also want to extend an olive branch to those voters who did not support me. The election is over and now it is time for our city to come together – unified in an effort to lift up our city.

During the past two weeks, I have met with the City Manager, I have attended the committee work meeting and the regular session of City Council.​I am working through the financials and have received the latest independent, third party audit report of the city’s budget. Kevin Jones and I have been working on the top two major citizen-led working groups that I will be appointing in December -- The Schools & Jobs Task Force and the Safe Neighborhoods Advisory Committee. We will be making those appointments during our first session and putting these citizen-led committees to work – providing valuable input and insight into the major issues facing our city. Finally, I have been holding a number of meetings with county commissioners, administrators and our DOT Commissioner to get a working relationship and understanding of the many issues ongoing at City Hall. No doubt, it is a busy time right now.

I wanted you to have the inside information on what we’re doing and how we are progressing.  If I can be of assistance to you, please message me.

Sincerely, Sandy Roberson

Mayor-Elect of Rocky Mount
