What makes a community great? A good start is a community where all residents are treated fairly – young people, old people, low income people, ethnic minorities, entrepreneurs, artists and immigrants.

On the heels of a successful community forum on February 29, 2016, at the Unity Center, the newly re-established Human Relations Commission invites the community to be heard at any one of five scheduled listening stops. These scheduled stops are being held in our local churches but are not limited to specific congregations. Each meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

Thursday, April 14 - Statesville Covenant Cathedral, 1103 Wilson Lee Blvd.
Tuesday, April 19 - Shiloh AME Zion Church, 1115 Salisbury Rd.
Thursday, April 21 - St. John's Baptist Church, 1438 Church St.
Thursday, April 28 - Trinity Episcopal Church, 801 Henkel Rd.
Tuesday, May 3 - Grace Baptist Church, 719 Club Dr.

The public is invited to speak, write down their concerns and suggestions for improvement on a card or just come and listen. The meetings will be facilitated by local community members. Representatives from local government, Iredell-Statesville Schools, the NAACP, the local faith community, law enforcement agencies and the business community will be there to listen.

The results of these forums and the Feb. 29 forum will be presented in a special report to the community later this spring.

Statesville has a familiar face behind the Finance Director’s desk. Ralph Staley, 55, the City’s Finance Director from 1990-1999, has been appointed to the position, announced City Manager Larry Pressley. Staley’s first day (back) at the job was Monday, Jan. 25.
“We are very fortunate to have someone of Ralph’s experience and abilities in this office,” said Pressley. “His knowledge about the City’s financial operations will be invaluable as we face the challenges of a growing community.”
“The first time I came to the City I began work with the rest of staff on the recent annexation of the Broad Street corridor. This time there is a lot of activity starting and continuing at the airport and also at Exit 45. I am anxious to see where this development takes Statesville,” said Staley.
Even though Staley has worked in Charlotte and Washington, D.C. since his departure in 1991, his family has stayed in the area.
Family has been a driver related to my time in Statesville. Last time it brought me closer to where I was born and raised in Wilkes County and this time it brings me back to North Carolina where my children have put down their roots and brought grandkids into the equation.”
Staley received his Bachelor of Arts degrees in Accounting and in Business Management in 1982 from North Carolina State University. He has been a Deputy Executive Director at the District of Columbia Housing Authority since September 2011. He was the Chief Financial Officer of the Housing Authority of the City of Charlotte (NC) from June 2001 until September 2011. From December 1999 until June 2001 he worked in the securities industry where he held the Series 7, 24, 28, 53 and 66 securities licenses.
Before coming to Statesville in 1990, Staley worked with the Town of Garner and as a Systems Accountant with the N. C. Department of State Treasurer State and Local Government Finance Division. He started his work career in public accounting in 1982 with the North Wilkesboro firm Benson, Blevins, Drum & Thomas, CPA's.
Staley is a member of the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, North Carolina Government Finance Officers Association, North Carolina Local Government Investment Association, National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials and the Government Finance Officers Association. He was also an elected Iredell/Statesville School Board Member from 1998 - 2002.
Staley is filling the position left by Lisa Salmon who retired last year. His salary is $100,000.
