Everybody just watch what steve burns does afew months before election time. He will go out an make 3 or 4 drug raids to make people think he is doin his job. Just think about what he has done before the 3 years pryor his election run. Do you think he is doin this to get you to vote for him again? I have never voted for him an never will, I don't care which party a person is in. He who makes the most promises is a liar an only helps themselves. Two terms is enough for any job. Those jobs in the government is for the people not the ones in office they are suppose to listen to us an not do as they want to. "WE THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE" they use there office for there personal use,if I owned a business here in town they would not get a discount they are no better than us we pay full price they should to! One last thing- " why does the criminals have more rights than we do?" Put them all on a chaingang bustin rocks an cleanin roads up- an no air conditioners an color tv- sheriff joe of Arizona needs to be here.

I am a Republican and I am embarrassed by your ignorant comments-it is hatred and anger like yours that is making people hate our party-please grow up and stop!

I agree with those who wouldn't vote for Hankins because he is a Democrat. Democrats are on the wrong side of so many issues: abortion, trying to shove gay marriage down our throat, battling Christianity while embracing every other religion, always looking to expand the size of government and increase taxes, etc. That is their platform. Anyone who agrees with the party shows that they have a stance on the many issues that I disagree with. For me, I am not a Republican either, because I disagree with them much of the time as well, but they do not have core platform stances that I fundamentally object.
So sad man

It is so sad to hear a person so narrow minded in their vision that you would paint a person with this partisan paint brush you are using. Pat is a conservative Democrat if I ever saw one and he is a man with honor and integrity. I have true respect for this guy. Learn about the person running not the party crap!!
Parties and politics are killing this country- in the beginning they were know as the Democratic Republicans anyway... FYI

The only way Hankins would get elected Sheriff is if Burns drops dead between now and election time. Even then though he'd get beaten by Danny Greene.

I guess you don't get how this election stuff works- wishing death on someone seems a bit extreme but at the poll on Election Day dead last will be the correct place for the current High Sheriff.

I disagree. Every American should look to what made this country great, which is adherence to the Constitution, limited government (particularly at the federal level) and personal freedom. It is as simple as that, yet 95% of Americans have drifted from that. As for Democrats, everyone should oppose them, as they are the antithesis of those three principles. I too could never support a candidate who identifies himself/herself as a Democrat. And what is a conservative Democrat? Would that be the same as a beautiful deadly hurricane?

First let me start by saying. I have nothing against Steve Burns or Pat Hankins. I went to school with Pat. He was and still is a class guy. I also think Steve does a great job. As far as the party system goes. I would be embarrassed to call myself a republican or democrat. Now that I got that out of the way. The reason I replied to this post is your comment on women preachers. Religion is spiritual. A soul has no color or gender. I leave you with this verse. Galations 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Religion is spiritual. But, the verse you stated is speaking about when a soul is in heaven.
Not, while they are here on earth. Because in heaven we will all be the same.
Now as far as ""Women preachers"" Women is not called to preach God's word.
1Timothy 3:1- This is a true saying, if a "man" desire the office of a bishop he desireth a good work. This is from the King James Version 1611. It doesn't say any thing about a
Woman being a Bishop. A Bishop, is a preacher and overseer.
I am a woman and I don't believe in a woman preacher. I have been in church many years
and have studied the word and heard many old time men of God teach the word.
Oh my Mary

You are very scary and I will pray for you.
I wonder if you getting onhere to share with us your views would be sort of like preaching- I think so oops I think you did.

Nancy your writing style and choice of verbiage sounds a lot like an over educated know it all with big ideas and little follow through.

Holding any one person to a political standard of a group is like saying all green trees are pine- in this great country we choose our moral compass direction and if people are going to judge us - which they should not- it should be based on how we live our lives.
You are a political zealot and the conservative sides of both parties want nothing to do with you. Take your crazy voice and go cry to the Pailen's of this world!!!

Ain't going to be easy at all. The time Hankins is spending and all the effort he is putting in is just the beginning of a big change across this county. Pat Hankins can win this thing and from what I am seeing and hearing- Steve Burns should be very worried. People we are sick of all this heavy handed crap and it is time for the king to be no more. That is an elected position. We need term limits for this job- no man should take it as a career.
