Ludowici Politics

Nov 14, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Coastal Courier

I have just a few things to say. 1) for those that say that Long County is so small that there is no other choice than to hire kin folk.

Ludowici is lead by crooks all related or married the families. They over charge on the utilities, harass people because of what someone drives. The police, sheriff, and city council are all corrupted. There is racism throughout that little town. Rev. Miller ran for office and they didn't want to give him a chance just so sad. I just hope that the lord show his hand over the corruption in Ludowici.

Actually , I am new to the area , and white , my 3 kids attend school here, and we have all experienced racism against us ! I do not believe race has anything to do with it . I believe that if you have lived here long enough , than they are more accepting to you , theres an air of "local" that is thick as hell here. I do want to point out that I have inquired about and not been notified ( or posted anywhere ) about jobs with the county agencies. When the new animal control office opened up , I wanted to find out about work there ( more than qualified ) and to no avail , instead they have hired someone related to someone else who is also employed by the county ( pay no mind to the fact that he drives a fancy new truck). There are state certification levels that should be assessed and passed for the position he has filled, and NO ONE can prove that he has done so . IN FACT , an officer on the force told me he ( these are his words) is a "Good Ol' Boy , I've been hunting pig with him and he runs his dogs , when one gets ripped open, he sews it up shut , and a few days later they are out running again ", interesting - and scary, if true. The town of Ludowici could be better , but as long as small closed minds are allowed to run it , there will be no chance of change for the better.

I definitely have to agree. I have been here a few years. I have experienced racism against two of my children (we are white) at thier school. With that being said, I have witnessed the other spectrum and seen school officials openly speak poorly of the black race. How backwards of all races in this area. Also, whoever is in charge of handling dog bite cases is far from competent. I have a friend who's large dog bit someone. She reported it as she should and the gentleman who came out to address the situation took one look at the dog and refused to get out of the vehicle. He just closed the case with no further contact. Hmmmmmm The only facility that doesn't seem to be involved in county politics is DFCS, and they have a whole new set of issues. This is absolutely a town based on who you know and who grew up with who. I met Mr. Cecil Nobles on several occassions. My personal feeling about him was that he absolutely meant well, but there were too many people he knew wanting favors and saying no became too difficult. I have also met his son a few times. I think he is a wonderful man, and look forward to Ludowici starting anew and the favors becoming less prevalent with citizens being held accountable for thier actions, regardless of thier last name.

I do not know what you are taking about, but folks I have known Craig before he was the Sheriff. Him and his family have help me and many folks I know. And he did not know me and he helped me. God Bless Sheriff Craig Nobles and his family.

For those who have such fowl mouths and thoughts Sheriff Craig Nobles was appointed to the position of Sheriff, because of his qualifications. He has smoothly transitioned into this job and has done a wonderful job. Only a gutless, lowlife would hide behind a PC and not face the man. Grow a backbone will you.

Mister Sheriff Craig Nobles has been mine friend for a long time. He has helped me and many of us here in the sandhills. He now has a Spanish speaking Deputy that makes it simple for us to speak to him and say our problems. Thank-you Sheriff Nobles for all you have done.

You know nothing, just what you have imagined Johnathan and Lisa. It is you that needs to be run out. Sheriff Craig Nobles is qualified and is a fine feller.

I have been in Long Co for over 60 yrs. Most of the folks here are good, decent folks. Racism here is no more or less than anywhere else you go. Most often, jobs are filled by the most qualified. Not always, such as the case of the dog catcher, but most of the time. If I know that a single mom is in need of a job and is qualified to fill an opening, it doesn't really matter to me who they are kin to as long as the position is filled by a qualified individual.

Alot of folks want to gripe and complain about how they feel things are done wrong around here but few have any ideas of how to make them better. If you feel you have been discriminated against, file a complaint. If it is at the City level, file withthe city, if it is at the County level, file with the commissioners office. They have to investigate complaints. That is the law governing municipalities. Do something other than post trivial complaints on the internet.

We are not perfect here in Long County but we sure as heck are far from the worst!

It's impossible to believe that anyone but Perez would have anything positive to say about Perez.
