Williams Asks To Rejoin GWTA Board Of Directors

Antonio Williams

A Goldsboro City Council member wants back on the GWTA Board.

Councilman Antonio Williams was removed from the Goldsboro-Wayne Transportation Authority Board of Directors in October.

The GWTA Board Chair had asked for Williams’ removal alleging Williams had acted inappropriately toward another member during a September closed session.

Now, the Goldsboro City Council is looking at making appointments and reappointments to various boards and committees, and Williams says he wants to be put back on the GWTA Board.

Council member David Ham says he wants to hear from the GWTA Board before reappointing Williams.

No action was taken on Williams’ request Monday, but it appears the issue will surface again as the Goldsboro City Council takes action on those new board appointees.

    Just because the woman was not granted an order of protection doesn’t mean that he was exonerated…proof exists that he was verbally aggressive towards her. (Which is kind of ironic since he had been the catalyst behind the accusations brought against Zach Lily for virtually the same kind of behavior.) Please don’t “reward” this obnoxious, self-entitled bully for his actions by allowing him to return to the GWTA board. If I recall, there was evidence that he’d misused his position there, just as he has repeatedly done or has tried to do with his City Councilman position. Let’s remove him from both positions and replace him with someone with integrity. It would be a nice change for the citizens of Goldsboro to not have to constantly deal with this man’s divisive actions.

    All he wants to do is keep something stirred up,looking for a chance to Sue !!
