    4 murders in Goldsboro already this year.. Does there seem to be a problem? Is this a prime indicator to the police chief retireing, parks and recreation director and city manager resigning ( taking same positions elsewere )and rumors the Mayor is not going to run again ?? They have created a monster thru inaction where needed and feeding the wellfair faction of Goldsboro. When will the powers to be/residence step up and demand answers to what the Mayor and his ontourage has created ? When will the Air Base Wing Commander address what is going on and how it's effecting the mission?
