Elbert Mills Jr.?? Seriously??? Guy doesn't speak. What would he do for our jail? He has no plans for the jail. You're just giving him a job to get paid taxpayer money. He would have to hire somebody to get up and speak at fiscal court meetings. That'd just cost the county more money.
I don't know him and don't really care about this race, but the fact that he does not speak seems immaterial. People mitigate their disabilities by making up for them in important ways. I fail to see why this particular disability would make him a non-starter.

I have heard many horror stories from different people about the behavior of some of the workers that are currently there! Clyde Trent Jr. wants to remove the photos from the paper. According to the US Constitution a person is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty. He also wants to work towards reforming the inmate. Stopping the REVOLVING DOOR! He has served our country in the US MARINES and still holds to the motto "Semper Fidelis" Always Faithful or Always Loyal! He is dedicated to family and community and was a volunteer fireman for the Little Poplar Creek Fire Department.for a few years until working to support his family demanded that he work away from home. He has the heart, compassion, and dedication to make a difference in the lives of the inmates. He will hold his deputies to the highest standards and hold them accountable for their actions.He will offer the opportunity for inmates to give back to the community by cleaning up county roads, parks, & grave yards. He will work with non-profits to help inmates obtain employment upon release. He has a very good plan and I ask that you give him a chance. We Can Change Lives!

My vote is going to liford.He made a promise in the paper that EVERY inmate would work while in jail.Thats what they need to do an they wouldn't be so eager to go back.

"EVERY" inmate in jail has not yet been proven guilty, so basically what you are talking about is slave labor.
And what if that not yet proven guilty person has a legitimate job that they cannot go to but is then forced to do work for the county for free and is later found not guilty or charges are dropped? Will the county then reimburse him for lost wages?

I understand all of the decent people of our county want to end the drug problem, but we can't be so focused on that one thing that we turn a blind eye to the laws being broke by the staff and officials at the jail
I have heard a lot of people say " oh they are just dope heads they deserve whatever happens to them in jail" or things like that but an extension o that way of thinking is that someone who gets a speeding ticket or not making a complete stop at a stop sign deserves to be beaten and abused by the police because they are just reckless drivers who could have easily killed someone on that road

Im not talking about the people that stay over night,im talking about the people that are pulling their time there.Check out jail tracker an you will see that some have been there for a very long time just laying on their azz an the government feeding an taking care of them.Let them get up an go to kceoc an grow their food like liford says.They would most likely enjoy getting out for awhile.

Just because they have been there a long time does not mean they have been found guilty.
I have known people who have sat there over 7 months fighting their case in court

Yes I was an inmate, so what? If a crime is committed and only inmates see it does that mean it never really happened? There was well over a dozen witnesses,
I personally don't care about the whole putting the inmates to work thing, I was just saying Mary isn't the person for the job. What I saw and had to endure under her supervision should not happen to anyone in a civilized society.
And who do the toes belong to that I am stepping on? Seems to me it would have to be someone who was involved

I would never vote for Mary Hammons again. After I saw a jail worker BEAT an inmate at the courthouse and when I tried to do something about it, she lied and said it didn't happen when she knew good and well it did. Makes me wonder what's going on in that jail when no one's watching, if that's what they do in public. And before you ask- No, I have never been in the Knox Co jail or any jail. I've never even had a speeding ticket.
I have been in jail and yes I did wrong and I took my punishment, I never asked anybody for a "get out of jail free card" like someone else implied.
But I would like everyone to imagine this scenario for just a minute,( being locked in a cell and having to listen to your sibling In a cell 30 feet down the hall being beat every night for three nights, hearing every blow and every scream and being able to do nothing about it or even drowned out the sounds) and now I ask what crime is that an appropriate punishment for?

Mary doesn't have a clue on how to run a jail and neither does the flunkies she has working for her. Knox county jail is a joke. Explain to me how someone that had been in her facility for 4 months test positive for suboxine, tobacco, Xanax & hydro condone?? I think Mary is genuinely a nice person but she has no business being jailer! It's no wonder the jail has a revolving door, you wouldn't care to go to a facility that had movie night, oasis pizza, cell doors left open, use of guards cell phones and a wide variety of free drugs!!! Vote for anyone but her because no one could be worse!

Mary is one of the finest ladies in Knox County. She has a wonderful rapport with students, friends and colleagues. I have nothing bad to say about Mary. I don't believe the bad things that have been posted against her also and neither does anyone that truly knows her. Now, with that said I do know that jailtracker was taken down during a time when I was desperately seeking answers from a burglary. People telling me did this person or that person ever come to your house? Telling me to look on jailtracker for a picture as I did not know who they were talking about. So, when I found out that a few had persuaded to have it taken off I was outraged. For this reason only is why my family will vote for Mills or Liford. Not because Mary is a bad person.

Elbert Mills Jr is an extremely hard working person. He is an honest person and a man that would do a wonderful job for Knox County. Elbert is not a speech maker, he isnt someone that will promise you the moon and give you nothing in return. You dont have to be a public speaker to be a extremely hard worker. He has great plans for the jail and would be happy to speak with anyone that would like to know about those plans. A vote for Mr Mills would never be regretted.

I will vote for whoever brings back public hanging for 3rd time felons And a random drawing of 1 misdemeanor offender once a week for public execution. Drug dealers should be given a choice of voluntary overdose or 25 years of scrubbing inside porta potties with q-tips . In a short time our crime problems will be gone, and porta potties wont stink so bad.
