The way I see it is. If we vote chucky in we will have a bunch of kindergarden cops. If we vote for Ray chances are the stress will get to him and he will be in worse shape than he already is with his health. I like Ray. If Spencer gets it well we won't go there. If Goose gets it we would have it a little better. If we vote Tony in we will actually have deputies that will treat us with respect. I think that is what we need in a sheriffs office. I know for a fact and i can back anything i say up i know how chuckies deputies treated some very good friends of mine here recently and i think that is crap. Deputies are not only there to uphold the law they are there to show leadership.

I think Tony will bring the needed leadership into the sheriffs office we have needed for a long time. I do how ever think that some of the deputies are good guys and they try to do the right thing and up hold the law. I feel Tony will set a good example for his deputies and if you have good leadership and show respect to your deputies, Then they are likely to show respect for the job they hold and the people they serve.

Why would they have to pay for the academy? We have plenty of qualified people that are a whole lot better than what we got now.

I stand by my thoughts on Tony, But it doesn't matter who i like or who anybody else likes, What matters is who will do the best thing for Fentress Co. and if whoever wins they need to worry about the county as a whole not just a few certain ones. We live in a small town and there will always be talk. The only thing i worry about is when that talk takes away from the office and the people in it.

now there is all talk of bad deputies. I agree that there are a few down there that dont need to be. but there are also a few that deserve the job and do their job how it is suppose to be done. not good ole boy politics. it is just the bad ones everyone knows and the good ones get put up on the same level and thats just not right.
agree
