Figgins is not the new sheriff. He just won the republican primary. He will go against Randall Harkrader in November.

his current job is in Chautauqua Co. Sheriff Dept. his last job was with our sheriff dept. where he was fired. his previous job before he work for our dept. he was fired too. I just hope that the people are informed of this when they vote in November. Just keep your wives at home if he wins

Voted for Dan an sorry to see he lost. Wish Figgins and Harkrader both luck in the upcoming election may the best one win. But sound like a disgruntled sheriff's employee worried about their job after the election talking carp on Figgins. Yes I heard he was fired from Wilson County but also heard it was for doing his JOB! Seems some of the so call higher ups there did not like him doing the work they were to lazy to do. An this information came from some current and former employees for the sheriff office.

I voted for Dan as well. He is a good man. The ONLY good thing that will come out of Dan not being Sheriff is hopefully Bill Greene will lose his job.

Figgens is NOT a good man. He can't keep a job if he tried to. I know so much about that guy. Also, he is all talk and no show.

I actually caught him talking crap on Dan Bath with my own ears. I went up to him and asked him about what he was saying. He set there trembling and denying what he ever said and then went on about how people should be honest and not talk bad about other people.

The guy is a loser.

Like Bath/Green/Micus/Hartnet/Jayne s and several that work in the so called jail were not talking crap on Reyes and Figgins. Now they are talking crap on Figgins again in hopes of Harkrader being elected so nothing will change except for the Sheriff and Under sheriff position. If Harkrader does win I hope he surprises them, fires several and does some major changes out there

IF harkrader would win (which I'd hope he doesn't), nothing would change. He and Dan already have their plans for that! The crap people are talking on Pete comes from the employees at the sheriff's dept running scared because they know they're either going to 1) have to do some work or 2) lose their job! Pete's willing to make the changes we need!

I hope with a new sheriff in there that he will get some of the guys that don't like to do there jobs in there. Its time we start paying them for what the really do.

Pete Figgins lived for a time north of Fredonia in the country....he was a very, very good neighbor and helped anyone who asked for help. He just might get rid of all the dead weight in the dept. Ever think there are a few who know he will kick their butts to the curb if he gets in.

Very nice loyal man. Will serve and treat the county with respect. He will not be lazy and just float through his term. He may or may not make big changes to the staff but let's face it there are some that need to be made. Overall good Candidate. Good luck to both.

I think Harkrader could make a decent Sheriff if he would make some major changes in the department. I would like to here Harkrader say what his plans for the Sheriff Office are if he were elected. Who would he like to keep on and who would leave, what changes he would like to make in how the department would operate.

Same goes for Figgins I would like to hear who he would keep and who he would get rid of. Who he would like for his under sheriff. I believe the choice of under sheriff would say much on the quality of department.

Till I have more information on questions like these and not just BS opinions and speculation my vote is still up in the air.

Harkrader is a commissioner for Fredonia right? Will he have to resign that if he is elected Sherriff? Has he done anything worthwhile as a city leader? Just wondering if his current lakc of action as a commissioner will indicate the kind of action he would show for the county.

Crying cause you are a loser backing a loser? Reyes lost by a landslide for many reasons that he brought on himself. I don't care if Figgins is good or bad, he's better than Reyes!
NOW if we could just get rid of O.B.A.M.A....
