Well that was just the primaries and unfortunately you can't vote across party lines for different offices, so I'm sure that affected the vote some. BUT- come time for the general election you can vote democrat for sheriff, republican for whatever, so that won't be an issue. If Burns wins the general election, then I guess what everybody says is true. 1. This town is corrupt and the good ole boy system rules. 2. People will vote for whoever has the "r" by their name. I'm willing to bet the ole Boss Hog already thinks he has it in the bag anyway. I'm hoping the people of Greene Co will show up and prove who's really boss.

Yep!
Newberry found those 4 kids and Pigeon Forge found the escaped dude who walked out of Steve's custody. But who got the credit for it??
We should be seeing the big gangs of Sheriff's cars out in packs the next few weeks to grab some more headlines. If you are a CI you better lay low cause your number is up!!!

Change must begin someplace and one person can get it started. There are so many great people backing Pat and wanting good things for this county. You are right -one person can't fix this town but a bunch of good people and a leader who wants to work with these good folks can move a mountain. Can't never could and won't never would. Stand up and choose change and then join in and help make good things happen.
Sitting back and giving into apathy is not the answer.

What does the county need to do to get term limits for the Sheriff's Office? No one person should rule! Can you say stagnate, complacent,or "Same Ole-Same Ole" Really- what is the process to get it changed to a two year term limit like it should be?

Steve will beat Pat by 200 votes. However Pat could still win. It's going to be close. I just pray people wake up and see that we need a change. Steve has been in too long.
Hey you were close with this. I think it was closer to 750 votes between Danny and Burns. You think that surprised a few folks? I'm thinking this one is going to be a lot closer than 200 votes and I am seeing more people with those orange t-shirts and signs. I'm thinking Pat!!!

I see pat by 200 now. But get ready old crooked burns will have some major drug bust in the next month or so. The old Greenville Sun will have him all over the place.

I actually drove by there a few days ago & noticed this & thought the same thing myself. Seems like a lot of gov waste that you & me pay for.
Wonder why all those cars don't get auctioned or something?
If the county has so many cars- why did they need those new ones? Oh we'll I guess we are keeping up with the fancy cars the city and state are using. Too bad the guys who are out working are not using them. Those big shots who sit in the office really need an SUV for all the big take downs they do ... Not!!

When they finally get rid of that crooked, biased gossip rag pretending to be a newspaper we'll see some changes happening fast. Until then, spread the word for Hankins.

the time is now steve You have lied and took enough from the tax payer. For all of you that like high taxes vote for him and you should get it. For those who do not want higher taxes vote him out. 16 years in office is too long for anyone. If he does win this time and they raise our taxes for the people that vote for him you all better not cry or say a word. Just pay the higher tax and shut up becasue you all have been told what will happen if he wins again. It is not about just the sheriff I think we should clean house. Term limits for everyone.
Well gee

Here's an idea. Do not break the law and you won't go to jail. You really think people in jail should be treated as they are in a 5 star resort. Really?? That's what's wrong with this place. No matter who is elected people in jail should not be treated like royality.

I can't remember it's been years ago. Wasn't there something about Greene when he was working for the county. Then he went to tusculum. Again my memory is foggy. Just wondering if anyone remembers before I vote.
