Adkins is a "yes man" to Harris; Hensley would be the best man for the job but Harris will do everything to keep him from it; my vote is for Chief Tilson.

hensley has bad mouthed harris all over town trying to discredit him he has no loyality to anyone adkins is educated and can handle all of the managerial aspects i know both of them well and consider them friends but mike hensley cannot handle the stress and when it comes to mistreatment of inmates he is more guilty than harris and i am sure this will come out if he makes a run for sheriff.

Hensley didn't have to discredit Harris; Harris did that to himself. I don't expect Hensley to provide loyalty to someone who has discredited his badge, his office, and his county. Hensley is one of the few who had the cajones to tell the truth and he paid the price for it. I'll take honesty over loyalty any day.

hensley is not capable of even taking care of all the children he has had out of wedlock including those that not until court order would pay child support, hensley also is no leader just ride by the mess he calls home cant even take care of his property and animals he has caged up in a hog pin.

it seems to me that mike hensley statrted another form of smear against a man who gave him a job treated him excellent but when he seen a way to cut throat and discredit his boss jumped at the chance i am sure he and his merry band of local bar owners and dog thieves are at it again give the sheriff time to get better then attack him when he can defend himself. i would like to know when he works everytime i drive by his house the county vehicle is there. and who is helping him work in the garden is it the same inmates that help him in cane patch? he is saleing produce now.

it seems odd that everyone uses alias names on this site i am not afraid to use my name april harris and if my husband has resigned you would think i would know it. it has amazed me that many of you has not given him the chance to recover from a serious injury. he is still in recovery he spent 6 months in the hospital your lies and deception will catch up with you.

Ben Whitson - A great choice and leader, however
I know he doesn't need or want the position.

how many times has mike hensley ran for sheriff? i dont think he ever got more than a hundred votes. if sheriff harris doesnt run my vote would be ben whitson he is such a good man unlocked my car door one night.

Nobody has said your husband has resigned; this is simply a hypothetical situation asking people their opinion who should be the next sheriff on the off chance your husband should resign and/or get indicted. I don't perceive that there is any harm intended towards your husband nor do I perceive that anyone is making light of his injury.

I haven't read an ill word on this forum intended for your husband other than the title being a little misleading. I think everyone else on here is smart enough to figure out that the person who started this forum is simply expressing a "what-if" situation, not a "what has happened" situation. Regardless of what people think of your husband, good or bad, I think most have been wishing for his speedy and successful recovery.

April don't let these blowhards get under your skin about your husband none of them know the truth about him. Creme will always rise to the top as he has done and will do again you and your family is covered by the blood of the lamb and these devils will not succeed in destroying what kent has done for this town.so let them rant because that is all they can offer to the town of erwin ....... which is nothing!
