If you are going to become our new commissioner, you had better start campaigning.

I'm beginning to think we would have been better off to have run Harold again. He at least tried to win.

What will it take to get the ball rolling ? Lamar will have bankrupted the county before the election .

He has been. Its been said on here before by others. Perhaps you haven't been where he's been going around? Signs are popping up all over the place. Have you donated to his campaign? The newspaper is damn expensive to put ads in. What do you think he's supposed to be doing that he's not?

He has been offered help by people and never took them up on it. He has yet to get out in the neighborhoods and go door to door like all the other candidates. I realize that ads cost money but he knew or should have known that going in. People aren't going to donate until he gets up off his rump and introduces himself to them. He has yet to say where he came from, what he has done for a living and what makes him qualified to run the county. His time is up and he needs to either start or drop out. He is at present only taking up space and I for one have no patience with someone who has stolen the chance for someone with the desire to win to run.

Rich isn't who you think he is.
He's slick as a warm knife going through a cube of cold butter.

I think you are making stuff up. I've called the guy, and offered to get some signs out, met up with him and got them. He's been busy getting out and around to all the meetings he can and he's been working on opening the campaign office in town.

He's also been visiting people that have requested, me being one.

It's been posted in here before and I'll post it again.

His website is votecharlesrich.com

His phone number is on there. CALL HIM. He answers his phone or calls back right away if you get voice mail.

And whomever posted and said "he's slick" has obviously never met the man nor knows him.

I'm not saying I know him, but slick is not a word even close to how genuine he is.

There are 22,000 people in this county. It takes more than one man to spread the word.

Either get behind him or vote for Lamar. Your choice. Bashing him in Topix isn't going to help. Unless of course that was your intent all along.

Should expect less from one that buys a poker table with taxpayer money and puts it in a county facility. But wait!!! He didn't know about it!!!??? So, he's offered to send it back or sell it to recoup the taxpayers' money?

When he went to these meetings did he speak? Getting a campaign office open after the election is useless. Why isn't it open now and staffed by volunteers. i am sure people would be happy to donate their time. How many neighborhoods has he worked? We have two months until election and he hasn't started. The people who haven't asked are the ones he needs to concentrate on. Visit the ones who ask you to come by and while your there speak with their neighbors. Those 22000 people don't want to hear from me but the man they are going to vote for. They are sure hearing from Lamar. I'm not trying to put him down but he needs to listen when people try and talk to him. We have a commissioner that always does it his way. Don't want another.

You keep saying he hasn't started but he has and has been since the beginning of the year.

As for meetings he spoke at the ones I've been to. And he does listen. I still think you are trying to cause trouble and really don't know what he's doing. Do you have a tail on him and know his every move?

You sure sounds negative to me, in fact is this Reb again? People are listening here and I don't see you being positive. Have you called him yet? Tell him how displeased you are. I would call and tell him but I don't know who you are.

To me it sounds like your the one causing trouble. Trying to shove Rich down r throats! Not everybody likes the guy. Why dont u let us decided if we want to vote for him or not. Oh wait, thats not an option for u. I'm with the rest of the people on here, he hasn't done sh!t to promote his self. He needs to be the one calling people, not us calling him. He is the one running for commissioner not us. He has a long way to go before he gets my vote!

I'm not shoving anything down anyone's throat nor am I being nasty. I'm asking questions. I didn't start this thread.

If you don't like him, don't vote for him. It's quite simple.
