wake up , if you like high taxes and more crime vote for burns.if your sick of lies and do not want a new jail vote terry jones sheriff.12 years is too long for any one in office and if he wins it would be 16 years.that is way too long for any one too hold an office.

Go ask the employees of the sheriffs department what they think of Steve Burns. Morale has been down the last two years at the department. Burns has lost sight of his employees and doesnt care about them anymore. Stop a deputy or jailer and ask them and if their honest and not afraid of being fired they will tell you the truth.
A very nice man

Everyone has a dark side. Much like people who are able to spread rumors about others and not feel the least bit guilty about it. There are always going to be rumors in any election, which is a shame, but when people blatantly lie about another candidate in order to gain some headway, that, in my opinion, is a true dark side.

why do we only see drug raids in an election year. Go back and look and see how many raids we have had and then decide.Our old people are no longer safe in there own house and most will tell you that they do not feel safe except in an election year. Lets protect all the time...Steve has done a good job but I think we need change and a fresh look at things....

you guys have got to be kidding!

i have talked to several deputies and asked their opinion. most of the ones i have talked to have worked for both.

they will tell you point blank...

jones is more of a business man. wears a suit and wants to work 8-4. very smart guy and a good man just more of a business man. he doesnt respond to many calls himself and doesnt work WITH the deputies as much as he should

burns is more of a "sheriff". he responds to calls sometimes by himself. he actually gets out there and works! he has also set up an account so that our tax dollars dont pay for the cars or the decals on the side or the light bars or even the vests they wear. the only thing our tax dollars pay for are the gas, oil, and maint. of the vehicles.

i know both jones and burns and i like them both as people. but burns will be a better sheriff for both the department itself and we the people of greene county.

Steve Burns is a fine man. I agree. I've noticed you are for Roger Jones for school board. I respect your opinion, but I beg you to reconsider. From what i can see Roger Jones dislikes Burns a great deal. This goes back to when Roger was county mayor. Jones is also a VERY political man and truly doesn't have the children of Greene county at heart. I'm an educator and I've heard him speak at political events. He spoke that children should be judged on state test scores. There is no way that we can judge everything a child knows on a three day test. Anyone who knows a tidbit about children can understand this. I wouldn't want to be judged this way. Some children are just not good test takers or their parents were fighting all night or they didn't have breakfast. Please reconsider and vote for Collins for school board. We need change on the school board. The unprofessional manner in which some of the school board members act is sickening and a black eye to our community.

Steve Burns is the best sheriff this county has had in the history of my being eligible to vote. And I disagree about morale at the Sheriff's office. I have talked to the majority of employees there, ( believe me, in my profession they would be honest) morale is at an all time high. Steve has cleaned up the image of the county deputies and is doing and will continue to do a great job as sheriff of Greene County.
