My name is Pete Armstrong and I am a resident of Rocky Mount, North Carolina running for the vacant Ward 7 seat in the upcoming City Council primary. The election is scheduled for May 17, 2022 and we have a lot of work to do until then. 

I love Rocky Mount! As the representative for Ward 7 in the upcoming City Council election, I will be running on my Five Characteristics of Success listed below. 

Experience I have worked with and for local governments in North Carolina for over 35 years, most of them being with the City of Rocky Mount. I understand the workings of Rocky Mount government and I know how to get things done. A few of the many projects that I have been involved in throughout my career include: The Rocky Mount Sports Complex, The Imperial Centre, Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, Denton Street Pool and Stith-Talbert Park.

Integrity:  I have a reputation for being honest with everyone. When I tell you I will do something, you can count on me to do it. I always keep my word. My hope is that the entire City Council will adopt a "Code of Ethics" vowing to exhibit integrity in all action and items of business.

Openness: The actions of the City Council should be taken in an open environment. The public has a right to know the decisions made by the Council. Occasionally, this is not possible due to legislations. If exceptions are made, the Council has the responsibility to explain why. All state open meeting laws should be followed.

Responsiveness: I will be accessible to all citizens of Ward 7. I will meet with any individual or citizen's group upon request. I will visit all areas of the ward to learn the needs of my constituents.

Financial Responsibility: In order to fund the true needs of the city and its citizens, the Council needs to work within budget to remove unnecessary expenditures.  The city needs a system of rewards for employees who come up with cost-savings recommendations. 

I promise to work hard for EVERYONE in the ward. I will make sure there is ethical and transparent government. The City of Rocky Mount has a very promising future in front of it and I will help get it there. I will provide fair treatment for all and a safer Rocky Mount for everyone

I cannot do this without your help. Each of you can do your part by VOTING. It is the most important first step anyone can make and if you vote for me, you will be voting for someone with integrity and experience. As stated previously, I love Rocky Mount and I will do everything in my power to make our city the best that it can be!
