Local residents state that months ago, Gilmer County Judge, Dean Folwer was asked to find other office space and to move out of the offices owned by area Attorney Matthew Patton. Local residents state that Fowler had participated in questionable activities and Patton wanted to distance himself from Fowler. Fowler later was involved in a Grand Jury indictment for official suppression and other charges as well as had been the local media clown on area television and newspaper articles for his kangaroo court activities that involve the judge name calling county commissioners, overpaying an area attorney with tax money for duplicate expense reports, etc. amongst other activities that are beneath the maturity and experience level of a person in the county judge position, especially one that is suppose to be a licensed attorney.
