Randy Lilly and others are running for sheriff. I hope Randy gets the job. He is a highly trained correctional officer. He also works with FMRS. He deals with mentaly challenged people. He has taught some of them to count that couldn't count before. Also he has taught ones who didn't know how, to tell time. He has alot of patience when dealing with them. He treats everyone with respect and kindness. Is there any of the others that are running we can say that about? Keep in mind he is highly trained to deal with all walks of life. I will be voting for him.

I have tried to stay out of this but I am so sick of seeing people compare apples to oranges and try to make it work. You can't put a square peg into a round hole and make it fit. Being a correctional officer is just that. Nothing more and nothing less. That does not mean you are qualified for the position of Sheriff. By the way, why don't you tell us how long Randy has been a correctional officer? In June of 2010 is when it was posted on Facebook that Randy was retiring from construction to become a correctional officer. That is only two years and only if he is still employed as such. That's not a long time for anyone to use that to run for Sheriff. If he is still a correctional officer I would like to know where he is employed. When does he have time for FMRS and for campaigning if he is still working as a correctional officer? It has been stated that Randy is "highly trained correctional officer." So explain what training he has that every other CO doesn't have. What makes him so highly trained? Two years of employment and you would think Randy runs the whole prison alone, according to some people. A correctional officer works in a prison or jail along with many other correctional officers, so tell me how does that make him any more qualified than any of the other candidates? When there is trouble a CO always can call for back up but as a Sheriff in this county, you may have to handle a situation on your own. How is his training going to help him if there is an armed robbery at Big Four? How is a CO's training going to help him when a woman kills her own daughter over 20 years ago and the body has just been found? How about when a child is killed due to child abuse? Or when a woman is killed by her husband in a domestic violence situation? A DUI? A person who is high or on drugs? A drug raid? A hostage situation? It makes no sense to me to think one compares to the other. You can't logically make that jump. As a CO you deal with convicted felons AFTER they have bee arrested and convicted. As a Sheriff you are out there investigating and making the arrests, or you should be. They are two different jobs that don't relate to each other. As a CO you don't question possible suspects, stake out a house to look for drug use, deal with people who are high, because by the time most get to prison they have detoxed. A Co never has to investigate a wreck but a Sheriff does. A CO never has to go to a house where there are firearms and someone threatening to commit suicide but a Sheriff does. A CO doesn't have deputies working under him but a Sheriff does. You just can't compare the 2 jobs.

Please do not tell me that Randy working with mentally challenged people makes him more qualified to be a Sheriff. Wow! Unbelievable! I taught my neice to count so I think I will run for sheriff. Again, how in the h*ll can you make that jump? How is that going to help him if he becomes Sheriff? The fact that he may have taught someone who is mentally challenged to count or tell time has nothing to do with becoming a Sheriff. Maybe, if he applied for a volunteer at a school that would be a great qualification but his job for Sheriff has nothing at all to do with that.

Respect and kindness? Really? Randy says himself that he will not be nice to the Suspects, he will only be nice to the victims and that was his words, with no thought at all given to the possibility that sometimes people are innocent when they are arrested. Was he respecting his wife when he allegedly was with other women? Or is that the "kindness to everyone" part? Was he being respectful when he made comments about another candidate's children and the candidate on his page?

Randy is now highly trained to deal with all walks of life? What the hell does that mean? I work with the public and deal with a lot of people every single day from all different careers, incomes, mentally challenged, sexual orientations, races, beliefs, ages, and even some addicts from time to time so I guess I am highly trained to deal with all walks of life too. That doesn't mean I am a candidate for Sheriff. I think we all basically deal with all walks of life every single day.

Did Randy ever become a Correctional Officer II? I am sure if he did it would be on his facebook page and it is not.

The comments by Randy himself, as well as other people insinuating that other candidates are taking his signs are crazy. I guess Randy doesn't mind false accusations without any proof to back up those accusations. I have a very important news flash for you. EVERY CANDIDATE FOR EVERY OFFICE HAS SIGNS MISSING! It's not only "poor boy that no one should mess with because he doesn't have much money" signs. All the candidates are going through the same thing and this isn't the only election this has happened. It happens in every election. That is nothing new but to insinuate that other candidates are doing this or having it done is just wrong. Unless he has proof of this that is not a good credential to have as a Sheriff. If you are so poor then don't buy the signs. If you can't afford it don't do it but if you invest in them then don't cry and whine when something happens to the signs. Sounds like poor money management to me.

Vote for who you believe in and trust to do the best job but don't be fooled into thinking being a CO is even close to a stepping stone to becoming Sheriff. You just can't compare the two and being a CO should not be used as a credential to run for Sheriff. Bottom line: Randy is no more or less qualified than any other candidate that is running for Sheriff.

Highly trained? He has a job just like everyone else. Just because he WORKED for the prison doesn't mean he can be a Sheriff. He is not a Counselor at FMRS. He has several bosses. He drives the FMRS folks to and from the office and to the stores and stuff. This doesn't qualify him to be a Sheriff. We all see his cocky Facebook posts. I have never seen someone so stuck on themselves. Makes me sick!

It's just so nice of you cowards to talk so much crap without posting your name.I agree-It's not like all the CSI Crap you see on T.V. Do you actually think you have what it takes to be Sheriff?He'd probably be a hell of a lot better than what's there now!

Who is it you think doesn't realize what the Sheriff's responsibilities is? I have yet to see one post that says it is like CSI on TV. Show me on thing on this forum that has been posted that a Sheriff doesn't do? No one has said anything about the Sheriff's job being like a tv show besides you and I have read all the comments. I will post the responsibilities for you and again I ask you to show what has been posted that a Sheriff doesn't do.

So what you are really telling us is that Randy's own family members don't believe and trust in him to be our Sheriff, but we are supposed to vote for him? If Randy is elected as Sheriff, that would affect everyone in this county and that would include Randy's own family members that apparently don't trust him to do the job. Your family knows you pretty well so I would thnk it would be safe to assume that his family members know best. No one can make Randy look like a monster except Randy himself. Please do show us the BS that has been posted.

I didn't realize Randy supporters, like Macmellon supporters, have to resort to immature name calling. How sad! I won't post using my real name as it is not safe. I don't see you posting your full name either. It's also not recommended by Topix to post any personal information about yourself on this website. Where in the hell does the CSI comment come from? Nothing on this forum that has been posted is not the Sheriff's responsibility. If I thought I had what it takes too be a Sheriff I would have ran for the office myself. I agree that he would do better than what's there now, but that isn't saying much. The other candidates would probably do better than what's in there now also, with the exception of the one that is in office now.

If someone is forcing you to read my posts I would suggest you call 911 immediately. If you are not being forced to read my posts than they must be pretty important considering you took the time to reply. I really don't care what you think of me or my posts or who you vote for. Your opinion means nothing to me at all. Unless you are being forced to read my posts there is a pretty simple solution. Ignore my posts. Don't spend your time worrying about my friends as I have as many as I need. Let me be very clear here, I will comment as many times as I damn well please and my comments will be as long as I want them to be in order to make a point, which your comment failed to do other than being rude and showing your true colors. Unlike you, I don't worry about who you are loyal to and who you are not loyal to, like you concern yourself with how many friends I have. Your life doesn't concern me at all, however the Sheriff of this county does and I will continue commenting regardless of your bullying post!
