Okay since the other guy won, let's hope he can keep the taxpayers from having to build a new jail the way Steve Burns did. Steve Burns worked very hard to keep us from having to build a new jail - for those who truly understand the whole "building a new jail" thing. My guess, another jail will be ordered built shortly -- but let's hope not. Willing to give the new guy a chance. If the new guy let's that happen not only will a whole lot of egg be on his face, but a one-term sheriff will be all he gets.

I'm a Republican and voted for Hankins, for the following reasons!

1. Robbie Morgan.

2. Need help? No need to call the Sheriffs Office!

3. No community patrols, they all stay in town.

4. Thieves and dopers everywhere.

5. A Sheriff who drives a Cadillac Escalade, is a bit much!

Three county cruisers in the Dollar General Market parking lot with a 21 year old kid pulled over, crap like that is what cost him my vote. Get there lazy azzes out on community patrol where they are supposed to be.

I beg to differ. Steve Burns tried every way he could to get a new jail, and the County Commission for the most part, lost their jobs because of it! So did Steve! The Sheriff rode around in a Cadillac Escalade for a police vehicle, why should you and I pay for such luxury? Do you have one? I don't! I do agree, if "the new guy" don't live up to the job the voters gave him, remove him in the next election. For now I support our new Sheriff, but I will watch what happens! Elected Officials WORK FOR US, when they forget, we have elections!

Burns drives a taxpayer owned Cadillac Escalade, that is what he drives as a police vehicle! It has personalized Government tags that say SHERIFF! The taxpayers paid for it! Looks like someone is ignorant.

Its a Chevy Tahoe dumbass. This sounds like Jan Kiker, seeing how you have no idea what you are talking but continue to talk. A ton of sheriffs drive a Tahoe as their work vehicle. Anything else you would like to be educated on?

I have been in it ,too. It is a Chevy Tahoe. Greene County trash are jealous a-holes. They look at a big black SUV, and they see Cadillac, because they want a Cadillac. Trash covets Cadillacs.

I have ridden in a black Tahoe with him. I don't know if he drives it every day or not. I guess Hankins will get a Yugo to save the county money?
