Fayetteville N.C. Councilman Abuses City Employee

Fayetteville, N.C. – Fayetteville city council member Larry Wright’s professionalism and demeanor has been called into question by many Fayetteville citizens, and possibly more importantly by city employees over the way he publicly abused City of Fayetteville Sr. Planner, Craig Harmon, AICP, CZO at the April 23rd, 2018 City Council Meeting.

Abusing City Employee

Council member Wright lashed out at Harmon in what can only be described as a violently antagonistic and embarrassing tirade towards Harmon over Harmon simply attempting to do his job and save Wright from violating well established law.

Apparently since the installation of convicted criminal Mitch Colvin as mayor of Fayetteville state laws and city policies don’t matter anymore what with city council member Tyrone Williams allegedly attempting to extort $15,000 from Prince Charles Holdings and now council member Wright viciously telling a city employ not to tell him to act within the confines of established law.

Fayetteville’s city council hasn’t been seated barely six months and it’s already falling apart.

Hear for yourself the sheer vitriol Harmon was exposed to in a public and locally televised city council meeting. Talking over Harmon, interrupting Harmon, viciously berating Harmon, and all while Harmon had Wright’s and the city of Fayetteville’s best interests at heart.

Harmon: You should be looking at the uses of the property.

Wright: I’m not, no! Don’t tell me what I should be looking at! I’m axing (sic) you a question! No, no, no, no, wait a minute, wait a minute,  No! I understand!

Harmon: No, I’m trying, …..I’m helping you legally.

No person, and certainly not any city employee should have to stand there and take such abuse. Harmon’s professionalism however is a perfect example of the dedicated, highly trained and gracious staff hired by the city of Fayetteville.

Wright in contrast to Harmon appears to be nothing more than a barbaric, lowbrow, uneducated, unrefined and undignified angry black man.

A member of the city staff agreed to speak to TPTN on the condition of anonymity fearing the loss of their job if exposed.

“Oh this is just the tip of the iceberg. Council member Wright is well known for being arrogant and cocky towards city staff. He acts like he’s all high and mighty. A lot of the staff feel that Wright talks down to them like they’re dirt. He has that ‘Big me, little you’ attitude. Many of us have noticed that it seems to happen more towards white staff members than people of color. We try to ignore it but it’s hurtful and it just isn’t right. I hope HR sees how he acted towards Mr. Harmon and finally does something about it. Mr. Harmon didn’t deserve to be treated that way.”

And many citizens are questioning why Colvin didn’t perform his duties as mayor and enforce city policy which clearly states;

Part II; Chapter 2 (Administration) Article IV: Code of Ethics;  Section 2-91 Policy (a,b) The public judges its government by the way public officials and employees conduct themselves in the posts to which they are elected or appointed. The people have a right to expect that every public official and employee will conduct himself in a manner that will tend to preserve public confidence in and respect for the government he represents.

Part II; Chapter 19 (Human Resources); Article I: In General;  Section 19-1 Merit Principals (a) Fair treatment. Applicants and employees shall be assured of fair treatment in all aspects of human resource administration without regard for race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation),  national origin, age (over 40), disability, genetic information, or political affiliation.  Individuals shall likewise be treated with proper regard for their privacy and constitutional rights as citizens.

City Council Policy 115.2 “…neither the Council nor any member thereof shall give orders to any subordinates of the City Manager, either publicly or privately.

Harmon deserves an apology that is just as public as the embarrassing public berating he received from Williams.

It is not at all too much to ask that Wright publicly apologise to Harmon during the next city council meeting and not one of those non-apologies like “I’m sorry ‘you’ took my words the wrong way.” That’s not an apology.

Saying “I’m sorry you feel that way” to someone who has been offended by a statement is a non-apology apology. It does not admit there was anything wrong with the remarks made, and may imply the person took offense for hypersensitive or irrational reasons. Another form of non-apology does not apologize directly to the injured or insulted party, but generically “to anyone who might have been offended”.

Let’s see if council member Wright has the intestinal fortitude and strength of character to sit in that council member chair and say the words to Harmon as he stands at the podium; “Mr. Harmon, I’m truly sorry for wrongfully publically lashing out at you in such a barbaric and unprofessional manner as I did during the April 23rd, 2018 City Council Meeting. Please accept my apology sir.”

    I agree Harmon does need an apology from Councilman Wright. He should have listened to what Harmon had to say and then if he had any concerns address them then. Being interrupted like he was is just plain rude.

    It’s not fun when the rabbit has the gun… you and your MAGA people need to go someplace. I always say if you can’t put your name to a statement don’t say it. I’ve seen the way minorities have been treat from previous administrations, and your constant disrespect of our Mayor is seen in your undertone. Our Mayor is no more a criminal than our president. Our president is a serial sexual assaulter and harasser, but I’m sure you are good with him and his way layers of infidelity with his wife who seems more prisoner in her home than wife. The only smile youve seen from Melania in the past year was sitting and having conversation with President Obama. Back to the city, change is coming and it’s for the best. Mayor Colvin is the main reason the Astros are coming to town and he’ll push Fayetteville ahead.

    I doubt Harmon will get or hear an apology. Too many politicians are elected for reasons other than actually being qualified.

    What a racist mess you are bringing me here. When you have the police harassing homeless people and who are connected to criminal gang stalking networks you have a nerve feeling me with such hatred. Is it because guy Robertson lost the election to a black man?

    Anyway, the wife has already confirm that it is no ones business.

    As for Tyrone Williams, when I heard the recording, I knew it was a setup. I knew after the election, the racist white establishment who destroy my life (which was already fragile from homelessness) with gang stalking, electronic torture, systematic malicious contamination of nano technology particles in food and drink developed a Lynch pen to destroy black politicians. So adding Larry Wright name to the list just confirms this.

    There is an all out war black men. Whether it be homeless black like my self who complained about police harassment or black politicians, it does not matter!

      You are certainly the first homeless person I’ve ever encountered who carries around with them the means to electronically connect to the internet and comment on articles. Must do a lot of begging to keep that IP provider paid.

      Ever heard of the Library or Starbucks? And for your information, not all homeless are without financial support, a drug addict, or a prostitute. I’m gainfully employed, don’t drink, smoke or have promiscuous sex.

      Anyway, all you have to do is look up Targeted Individual and Organized Stalking and you will find what I’m talking about.

      However, the matter is about black politicians, since the poster mentioned three. That is about 25 percent of the council. I found a problem with that.

      Thank you for your response.,
