I wish that these young guns could just think beyond their ego's and do the right thing and save their money and drop out of this race for Sheriff. They can't see that they are to young for this job and don't have chance of winnig it. They should man up and drop out and try to work for Mike or Hank the next Sheriff and run again in 12 years. They have not paid their dues. With age, comes wisdom. Hank, Mike get to work on the voters.

Well I've been siting here thinking about what you said in your post, wanting to disgree with you but I can't. Your right. We need a Sheriff that has been there and knows the people and how things work. Like you said WISDOM. Hope the people will come out and vote. Who we need as sheriff and always have was Ray Bloodworth but he is no longer with us.

Why criticize someone for seeing a problem in this county and trying to fix it? Regardless of their age. I mean if someone actually CARES about the citizens and this county why not hear them out and see what they can offer? I don't think someones age should be the judge of someones wisdom.

I did not criticize or express any fault. Here's a example of what I was saying. As the old saying goes IF! I only knew then what I know now. I'm now in my 50's and I know alot more now then I did at age 25 like I said wisdom comes w/age. I'm not knocking the young guns for their intent the job they want to take on needs commonsensical and wisdom, not just knowledge of law.

"VOTE", why don't you just say what you mean, you are scared if the 3 independents stay on the ballot it will split the vote and the thing you fear the most Mr. Lonnie will be elected sheriff. I guess you failed to look Mr. Lonnie got 801 votes Tuesday, more than any other candidate running. Sam, Hank, and Bob all have the right to run, if they so choose, just because you believe so, does not make Mike a better choice than Hank or Sam or Bob, maybe they don't feel Mike is as qualified as they are. We are a part of a representative republic with a democratic process, the best in the world, you wanna run get your name on the ballot talk to the voters and let the chips fall where they may. No one has a right to ask or tell these other candidates to get out of the race. If the other announced candidates did drop out as you want,that does not mean their supporters will blindly vote for Mike, it doesn't work that way, candidates don't own the voters.

it really doesnt matter if the independents stay in or not. the electoral college can allow a man to be elected president by only carrying the states with the most weight and it often produces strange results. however, in this race, lonnie must still obtain 51% of the votes to win. the more independents there are the harder it is for him to do that. we will be looking at a runoff and it will be lonnie vs. mike straight up in the end.

You almost got it right, the law is 50%+ 1 vote, not 51%
