I'm not from Whiteville, but I conduct business there. I can tell you the good old boy system is no longer in place.

It has been both easier and harder to get things done, but it is no longer the corrupt little town it once was.

The past couple of town managers did a great job at making things more transparent and efficient.

Unfortunately, some people like to rehash the bad things over and over and turn a blind eye to the good things, especially when they didn't come up with them."
