The candidates are available at the court house. I don't know why you ppl start these forums. I have heard rumors however that Pickard fired Liford cause he was running for jailer. That is not true. It is illegal to run for a state funded office and work in a state funded office. Look up the krs on these laws so you all need to stop bad mouthing Pickard about this and ask Liford yourself. Liford and Pickard are both great people and smith supporters should stop trying to use lies as a way to hurt Pickard.

You obviously are new to knox county or new to topix or never get out.
This is a big topic that someone is spreading to make it look like Pickard fired him...
so he looks bad...and so Buster gets a sympathy vote...cause he now needs a job.

If you need any more help being in the know all of us are here to help you.

Good grief, I guess Mary Hammons didn't get any sympathy vote, Buster does need a job and Mary doesn't, plain and simple, She draws one retirement, Let someone else work and it doesn't have to be Buster, Just someone who needs a job!!

He is not allowed to hold the position of deputy and run for jailer, he quit voluntarily and was fully aware that he would have to do this. As for toast up, that's mighty fine logic.. Just put someone in office because they need a job.

I wasn't aware of that law. I know of plenty that do it. My opinion it's a useless law. But I know everyone don't agree with that and I respect others opinions.

Well, Well, What experience did Mary have running a jail, Be careful, Most of the candidates have more knowledge of the jail than she did when she took office!!

I called corrections to determine what a perfect candidate should be to run a jail.
They said, and I quote... College educated, past history of dealing with groups of people, an accounting degree would be outstanding. to sum em up... the jailer job has become 90 % administrator.
Dang, they described Mary Hammons - accounting
Experience...I know she helped Mr. Larry for 3.5 years.

So well well ...mr. toastee... the state sent you a well...so you best be careful, Not threatining you ...just quoting u.

Buster quit his job.

Mary erned her retirment... should she be penalized for doing all that. She never quit her job.

If JT is correct, she hasn't cost the county a d&* dime. So you would have a jailer that costs the county. Just to give that person ajob. We are all glad you aint in charge. You would hire everyone just to give them a job. ahahahahahhahahh
Sound like a democrat taxing everyone and giving away jobs. BTW I am a democrat, but I aint for just giving jobs away ...

If I gave Mary a rope, Does that make her a Cowgirl, I don't think so!! That Accounting degree means the same thing, Useless degree to run a Jail!!

Wow!!! I thought the county was broke!! But wait a minute, It is a election year, stuff will get done now!! If that Jm is holding back, Tell him to pay off the Hospital and for housing inmates at other jails, everybody wants to get paid, Not just those high paid elected officials in Knox County!!
