Its negative because of what he has said and how he accomplished getting elected. Do you know that his biggest contributor was a developer? And don't think for a minute that said developer won't get help from our new mayor. Plus his stupid comment about not caring about cutting the ribbon for little businesses opening just big box stores. He strikes me as very arrogant.

I am glad all most of the alderman were voted out, maybe now New Bern will grow instead of being stagnant.

Move to Trentwoods. You'll love it. Good schools, dead serious police. They'll give you a ticket for going 37 in a 35. Great family atmosphere. Awesome Christmas parade. Beautiful scenery. No low income areas. Rich, bored teenagers are the worst of the criminals.

Default looking at Moving to New Bern/Pollocksville

Hi,
My wife and I are looking at the New Bern area to buy a home... to utilize from time to time and then settle in. We currently live in New Hampshire ( #1 safest state??) .
Moving south to get away from the cold winters ( which does deter crime.. unless you have a vacation home on a lake .. then you get broken into almost every year).
New Bern from all I have read seems lovely... yet realistically is it really an unsafe place? My wife and I visit Boston Mass. often and would guess that Boston has a higher crime rate than New Bern and we have never had any issues...ever. Are there larger social issue with people living in New Bern that have the affect? Such as the have's and have nots?
Anyway, we will be there the week of Feb 8th to buy a home , just looking for feed back.
Jim

NHTransplant,
Rest assurred-There is absolutely no comparison between Boston crime and New Bern crime.
This thread sure does give an "interesting" perception of the crime in New Bern. Here's an idea. For interested in New Bern, how about follow their daily newspaper online: Sun Journal

Is New Bern becomming that unpopular due to crime and Government?


My question is: Why do you say "crime and government" as if they were two different things?

Pollocksville is very small community and is about 20 minutes south of New Bern. there is crime where ever you go but New Bern is pretty safe. My wifes parents live across the street from alow income area and have never had any trouble in the 50 years they have lived in that location.

We took a little day trip to New Bern yesterday and were really impressed with the waterfront walk that's been developed. Very pretty and pleasant to walk yourself or with your pooch. We met some nice people doing the same. Had some good chats, petted a few dog heads.

We had a great lunch at Morgan's Tavern on Craven St. in the historic downtown. My DH was pleased with his lasagne and my fettuccine with meatballs and marinara sauce was excellent.

I think New Bern's looking like a winner.

The art bears are a fun touch and the banners are colorful and pretty. I've worked in tourism and Main Street programs before and I think New Bern's doing a lot of the right things. My feeling is New Bern is a town on the upswing.
