Hmmm.....who to vote for? Fox or Hawkins. Tomorrow is the big day, still undecided, both sides bashing the other. I really dont want to hear it anymore, just tell me what YOUR plans are for Mecklenburg County!!!
I think the " Mecklenburg 10" may be hurting Hawkins chances because all they do is bash Fox. They are out for blood and may get the opposite! They should let Fox's record stand for itself and help Hawkins by getting the word out on the good Hawkins will do for Mecklenburg.
So whats up with the rumors I have heard about Norman Wagstaff not living within the district he is running for? Thought you had to live in that particular district? Supposedly he gave his late fathers address as his own? Could be a rumor....could be TRUE.

Well, let's take a look at the pros and cons of Danny Fox. Danny has done a good job, in my opinion. He has the experience, the background, the understanding of the job. He's still a young man with the potential of being in the job for many more years, which gives the county a sense of stability. That's the pros. The cons. He's not afraid to use (or abuse) his authority. He ridded his dept. of 10 deputies for, maybe, good reason. Maybe not, we don't know. BUT!!! He did it when it was PERSONALLY convenient for himself, not for the good of the county. If they were not good officers for the past several years he should have gotten rid of them then, NOT after he was re-elected. It's a matter of integrety. To wait until after the election was a personal matter NOT a personnel matter. Next con. If you have 10 openly disgruntled people out of 60 staff members it's safe to say you have atleast half that many non vocal, disgruntled staff. So, 15 of 60 is one fourth of your staff. You don't solve problems by getting rid of those who voice their frustration. You fix the problem by FIXING THE DARN PROBLEM! This is just an opinion and may be totally wrong. But Danny lost this election based on the wholesale firing of 4 years ago. Again, my opinion, but I think Danny was let go by the same thought pattern he used when he fired those officers. Personal. It's a shame but I think it's true. What goes around does in deed come around. We lost a good Sheriff, let's hope we get another good sheriff.
