It will take someone who is already somewhat well known. This could be someone who has either been here a while or starts planning their campaign and getting it in front of the people for more than a 6 month period.

I will not completely discard Rich because stranger things have happened but in all probability the next candidate needs to start their campaign no latter than 1-1-13 if they have not been here for a while and well known.

They must be able to break party lines.

It is important for this person to be able to balance the ability to be a humble servant as well as a fearless leader. Weinstein's downfall came from the average citizen feeling he was somewhat pompous.

Having a well thought out plan for the county and trying their best to see that plan trough completion would be a nice touch. Simply slinging mud will not win an election here. Tell us what you wish to accomplish .. not what the other guy sucks at.

Of course this is just one hillbilly's opinion.

Have you ever spoke with Weinstein? He should feel a little proud since his work experience and education for exceeds most in the county. Some mentioned that he ran for Judge somewhere in Fl. West Palm or Miami I think. Wonder just how many votes Brackett would have gotten there? You think maybe his wife might have voted for him?

Hearsay.
No one can support it.
If you think having a DUI is being a drunk, then ACOG is one because she has a DUI. I have a DUI from many years past but I'm far from a drinker or drunk.
The good news is people in town still support Scott and like him.
That's the buzz in town, peeps.
Are you the same UC Voter that posted about being "pissed off" about Mr. Weinstein's signs (size). If you are, I see why you voted for Dwain. Your past DUI wasn't maybe reduced to a reckless driving offense was it? Or maybe Dwain's allowed your arraignment date to be continued for the past several years because you are represented by Attorney McAfee?

Just a thought.

Well he should be. He may not be the probate judge but when he is out of work he has something to fall back on. What does your boy have? The shoe factory isn't here any more.

A good number of the present deputies should be playing both sides! Given the conduct of some in the past it would probably be smart if they started putting in applications elsewhere.

I agree. I've never had a problem with Scott or the SO. We hear from the Scott haters all the time for some reason, but the silent majority has yet to be heard. In November, it will be a different story.

Don`t hate Scott . He has , and still has , some awfull excuses for deputies . It is a bad reflection on Scott and it`s his job to remove them . Mac is sober and has no problem with alcohol . Mac Mason will be a no nonsense SHERRIFF .All bussiness , straight and honest . No pay-offs .

I haven't seen the current sheriff campaigning at the funeral home. I have seen his opponent and that I feel is disrespectful and low in character. I had heard he did this but couldn't believe it until he showed up at my parent's funeral. My parent didn't know him from Adam's house cat nor did any of us, so I know he wasn't there for the family.

Did he come in the Sheriff's car or his personal car?
