The Difference in Candidates

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ I would like to take a brief moment to blog about my personal beliefs & observations during this sheriff campaign. These are a few events & instances that have been on my mind since they have occurred.

If this offends you, I will apologize in advance.

During the Franklin Fall Festival on October 5th, there were tents set up with the sheriff candidates: Wyche, Potter, & Turner.

I spent a great deal of my day, (about 3 hours) browsing and roaming the festival. While I was walking, I would glance & see Capt. Josh Wyche mingling with different individuals: individuals of different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. The smiles the he was met with reassured me that the community feels safe & comfortable while in his presence. With the growing rate of police brutality, this is essential.

As I continued browsing, while walking past the Potter & Turner tents & tables, I noticed that not one of them nor their campaigners approach me nor my family–as if we were invisible. We weren’t even met with a smile, a wave, or a friendly gesture. I’ll admit, this bothered me. Was I not worthy of speaking to? My vote should count too, right? After all, I am a registered voter.

In addition to that observation, I did not see a person of color as a campaigner or being recognized. This issue is important & noticeable to me. I observe the differences that I see, probably BECAUSE I’m a person of color.

As an African American, it is important for me to be seen & treated as equal & to not have other races seem “uncomfortable” with me, around me, or approaching me. In no way am I insinuating that neither Potter nor Turner are racist, however, it may be presumed because of the action, OR the lack thereof when they noticed people of other ethnicities at the event.

Recently, I saw a post on Facebook that endorsed Mark Turner with Evelyn Fancher -McKinney stating, “The good thing about retirement is that you can support the best qualified Candidate without fear of retribution. Also, anybody can study budgets and other reports, but Mark knows the County and the people that reside here. I’ll take the commonsense candidate any day over the power hungry. ๐Ÿ™‚(See Screenshot)

To which I responded, “Evelyn Fancher – McKinney unfortunately, as a lifelong resident of the county, I do not know Mark & he does not know me.

These moments are vital because, during the Franklin Fall Festival, Mark Turner was presented with the perfect opportunity to introduce himself to me & get to know me as a resident of Southampton County, yet he failed to seize the opportunity. He allowed me, along with my family, to walk past his tent without so much of second glance.

The other concern is Mark Turner has been rallying his campaign by his campaigners & supporters taking personal attacks on Capt. Josh Wyche’s character rather than inform the community of what he could do to assist us and make the community a better place to live. If you have been paying any amount of attention to the campaign, there hasn’t been an instance in which Capt. Josh Wyche nor his endorsements have taken low blows at the character of either component. In the words of Former 1st Lady Michelle Obama, “when they go low, we go high.” These are the things that are important to pay attention to with meticulous detail.

During a Power Palooza, a free event open to the public, I remember the heat & humidity. It was scorching hot, yet Lt. Josh Wyche rallied with the people of the community & gave us his support during this event. He encouraged the citizens of the community, and spoke on the importance of voting overall. I do not recall seeing any other candidate, perhaps they were there and left before I arrived. Maybe, they were there and didn’t make themselves known. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Whatever the case may have been, I remember Capt. Josh Wyche standing in the heat with us & for us.

Capt. Josh Wyche has been genuinely taking time to acknowledge citizens of Southampton County & the City of Franklin. That’s why you should take your time & hit the polls on voting day.

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ take into consideration all things when you visit the polls on November 5th.

๐ŸšจCaptain Josh Wyche for Sheriff ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿš”

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ it is with great pride that I write this article about Captain Josh Wyche, Sr.

In November, Captain Josh Wyche, Sr. will be on the ballot for Southampton County & Franklin Sheriff. I personally cannot think of any better candidate for the position.

Here are for reasons why YOU should vote for him:

โœ… his kindness and compassion for the community & citizens of the community.

โœ… his extensive knowledge, experience, & willingness to assist the community

โœ… his humility & his pride in his career

โœ… his meek yet authoritative voice that demands attention, but also enforces a mutual respect.

โœ… he’s a family man & has family values.

Captain Josh Wyche, Sr. is highly respected & a strong pillar in the community. His willingness to go above & beyond for the community is one of the many reasons he will have my vote in November.

His love for people (kids, adults, elderly, etc). –all people without discrimination, judgment, or hesitation makes him the best candidate for this area. The positivity he promotes is merely a part of his character & everything he represents as a man. He is the man that the community needs to feel more safe & secure in knowing that he has our best interest at heart.

When Southampton County suffered a tragedy, I witnessed Capt. Josh Wyche, Sr. attend the memorial service to offer support for the family & once the memorial ended, he straightway switched roles & began directing traffic without any prompting from others & without hesitation.

Even if Capt. Josh Wyche has stopped someone for a traffic violation, his approach to the car is calm & meek. This approach makes the driver comfortable even in a uncomfortable situation. With the rise of police brutality, feeling safe is important & Capt. Wyche serves all citizens with their well being & protection as his first priority.

He takes his career seriously, & has committed himself to the cause. He protects & serves, & he deserves your vote for Sheriff of Southampton County & City of Franklin.

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹, I’m not the only one who feels strongly about Capt. Wyche being the best candidate–check out these reviews & article.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆModern Day Jon & Kate Plus 8

Ok y’all! I have got to rant & rave about this power couple & AH-MAZING family!

1st of all–They have a beautifully blended family & are the modern day Jon & Kate plus 8. Var & Rae plus 8! I mean really, look at this perfectly blended family! There’s so much love that you can’t even depict who biologically belongs to one parent or the other & that alone makes my heart melt!

Now, let’s talk about the parents! The gifts & talents of these two are MIND BLOWING!

Mommy, Rachel, who also goes by Lady Rae is mommy by day, but quickly transforms into Make Up Artist Extraordinaire ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’„โœจ!

Not only is she a makeup artist, she doubles as a beautiful modelesque babe followed by her stunning daughter! The ONLY daughter might I add! I have witnessed this young lady blossom into such an extraordinary rose amongst a garden of daisies. I’ve seen her mom (and bonus dad-we will get to him in a few) pour affirmation & plant seeds of positivity into this young lady to ensure that she blossoms no matter where she is planted! This young lady wants to pursue modeling! Help her dream come true! If you know a modeling agency, please reach out!

Besides makeup & modeling, Lady Rae transforms yet again into a Craft Mom (this lady can do EVERYTHING). Check out the matching skirts sewn by Lady Rae ๐Ÿ˜

Now, let’s move on to dad! Lavarius Majette, who also goes by L Terrel is super dad by day, but superstar singer by night! Let me correct that, he doesn’t SING , he SANGSSSS! You have to watch this video & it’s one of my favorite songs! (Issa vibe)

This young man has developed into a star that is sure to rise to stardom & will be one of the next top names in music! Be on the lookout for L. Terrel.

I remember when he was singing in a group, then named Chosen. I could hear the passion of music in his voice & he reminds me of a young Chris Brown. I also remember when he sang in the high school Jazz Band & you had to be the best of the best to be selected to sing in that band.

I’ve never seen a young man that loves his family so much. Not only is he a dad & a superstar singer, he is a Pastor & pours into people on a regular basis. He offers support, encouragement, and inspiration to his family & his church family.

Those boys are nothing short of amazing! ALL 7 of them! Full of different contagious personalities that blend beautifully together that makes you fall in love with them all, but for many different reasons. They are all well mannered & excel in whatever they do! Not to mention HANDSOME! That’s parenting done right! Var & Rae sacrifice whatever they have, whether it’s time, money, or energy to ensure these boys don’t end up another statistic.

Check out their parenting Done right pics

I fully support & endorse this family! Keep up with this AMAZING family by connecting with them! I PROMISE, you won’t be disappointed!
