nope, he is pretty "stand up" in my book. Tramell on the other hand isn't on the top of my list.

Hickman has been in office for way to long. We as the community of Boone Co. need a change of command. You can not have one person be in office for to long or they start acting as if they are the law or do no wrong. We can not i repeat can not have a dictatorship taking over our county. Besides the new jail what has Hickman done for the County. The land was donated and the jail was built with our tax money. So what anyone in office can raise the taxes if that is the power he/she holds. THE SAME GOES FOR "MAYOR MOLES" WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR HARRISON. Crockett and Tramell has my vote. If you don't agree that is fine i am not trying to change your mind, you will vote for your person and that is fine. I just hope you or I is right when it comes to our community, our neighbors, our family, our children. We need someone to stand for us as a whole. God Bless this nation and Boone Co. my home.

My last comments did not post so let's try this one...

I know Trammell and I have worked for Hickman(no I did not leave on bad terms). I think there is information that most people of this county do not really know.

Let me start by saying, if you are an employee of Hickman you will be subjected to horrible emotional abuse. This is a tyrant Sheriff who treats his employees very poorly. If you do not agree with what he says or does you will suffer in one form or another. He can make your life a living hell when all you really want is to be the lifeline for the citizens of Boone county by being a deputy, jailer dispatcher or administration. You will be belittled, cursed at for whatever reasons, spied on in your personal lives, ignored if he is angry with you, scrutinized, the butt of his jokes, and subjected to his personal wishes. If you do something wrong, which we all have, you can bet everyone in the department and surrounding buildings will know about it. If you have a medical illness fall on you or your family, there is certainly no mercy there.

You don't have to believe me. Ask his past employees. Why the ex-employees? Because the current ones are terrified of the repercussions they will face if he finds out they disagree in any way. Most have been told that if he wins they will be fired in January if he found out they did support him. What kind of a place is this to work not to mention, what kind of place is pruning our deputies(you know the ones who save the rest of our lives when in danger)to be disgruntled employees? The morale at the Sheriff's Office stays on the low end of the spectrum. Check the turn over rates for employees at the Sheriff's Office. It speaks for itself!

Let me also say that some of you citizens think he is wonderful but let me tell you this, we, who have worked or are working for him hear the true feelings that he expresses about the citizens. Its sure not supportive of the middle and lower class! If you don't have money, he doesn't have time for you.

In closing, vote for whomever you please but keep in mind on who the persons are that respond to your residences in times of need. It's not Mr Hickman.

I know of two EX employees and they both have similar horror stories.
Both FIRED! You never KNOW someone until you work UNDER them!

I, too, am a former employee and while I chose to leave...I'm sure it was only a matter of time before I would have been fired. Someone should make public how many employees leave the sheriff's Dept each year...that would certainly "say" something about how the office is run. Danny is a bully of the highest level to both female and male employees...he seems to delight in making people fearful & women cry....and definitely has that "do you know who I am?" attitude. There isn't an employee who has left that office who would go back as long as Danny is in charge! Maybe Mike Moore would like to "weigh in" on the former sheriff's dept employees (5+ women) who came to him regarding information on a discrimination suit against Danny!!
And, the public wouldn't know...but the only time Danny does anything resembling sheriff duties is when there is a photo op....or a campaign. This is the first time someone has had the courage to run against Danny...I'd bet ALL former & most current employees will be voting for Trammell or not voting for sheriff at all...
"hasmyvote" said Danny has done "wonderful things for the community".....exactly what are those "wonderful things"?

Trammell for Sheriff NOT

Let’s not forget about who JIM TRAMMELL is!!!! The differnace here is that everything said about Trammell is based on the person he is and has been since he was a kid! NOT ON Rumors from some ex-employees , people that have been arrested or have an axe to grind. Most of the people posting have all been life long friends or even family members of Jim Trammell.

The last comment you have not worked for Danny and if have then you would know, he has always said that he is GOD of Boone County he is not God and there is only one God and he died a long time ago.
Danny is a horrible boss and has issues with women.He expects you to stand up and acknowlede him if he is in the room and it does not matter what is going on, he treats people like they are stupid and expects you to do what ever he says and does not listen to both sides of the story he had a very bad temper and he screams and yells and belittles you he also will curse at you and has told several of his employees that he is the sheriff and that he signs there pay check,he fools alot of people but the ones who really know him know that he is no good for Boone County

The post you are seeing is from real people that worked and still work for him.A few weeks ago someone that was in the courtyard on a Friday morning seen him meet the deputy that had transported a inmate for court on murder charges make the deputy get back so he could have his picture taken for the paper.Most people that worked for him and left which is more then you realize have medical problems now because of being treated so bad and cussed at in front of the public.Some people at the court house say his ego is so big his head want fit in the doors there.Everyone knows that Jim has a x that is still pissed off because he didn't want to be with her and we all don't give a crap.We are more concerned with how he treats his employees and the public.He has cussed so many low income people because they had a problem that he didn't want to deal with. He has made it clear to the workers still there if they tell the truth about the way he treats them they want have a job if he wins. I pray that people open there eyes and do what is best for Boone County.If it wasn't for the sheriff's ego the jail would be at the Emerson building which would of worked better for all of Boone County and less money on the tax payers which is all of us.

If "Trammell for sheriff not" would do more research they would find that the Jim Trammell that had the protection order in Clay county in 1994 isn't the same Jim Trammell running for sheriff in Boone County. Not the same person what so ever but I don't think you really care if it is are not.I just hope someone don't lie about you that way.Everyone needs to check things out better and make sure of what they are telling before they make a fool out of there self like you are doing.

I bet you I know of one crime Jim Trammell can solve if he became Sheriff. That is who took the Hickman for Sheriff sign out of my yard and off of the fence down the street from me.

I am a current employee of Sheriff Hickman. Unfortunately I can’t say my name simply due to the fact that it would work against me if Jim Trammell were to become Sheriff, and I do love my job. I will simply say that Sheriff Hickman is a great Sheriff to work for. Everyone is posting that he treats his employee bad, and I would defiantly disagree, but they are ex-employees for many many reasons.

I however understand the pressure placed on Sheriff Hickman from the community. If we the employees do something wrong, he is the one you hold accountable not the employees. It is kind of like if you get mad at a friend or family member you treat them with a little less respect than usual, or say or do something that hurts them in the heat of a moment. But you get over it and move on, after all it is a Law Enforcement agency we are here to protect Boone County, and as a Sheriff or even if it is your supervisor they can’t be both a supervisor and a friend. I always know where I stand with Sheriff Hickman.

I don’t have to come up with all kinds of examples on how Sheriff Hickman is a great Sheriff to work for, and I have never had him tell me to get out of the way if media was in the area. But I would agree that Media relations is part of the Sheriff’s Job not mine.

I can say that I have never heard an ex-employee talk positive about their past employer in a positive way no matter what Job is it.

Sheriff Hickman will get my vote as well as most of my co-workers. And I can say 100% that Sheriff Hickman has never indicated in anyway that me or anyone else would be fired if we did not support him.

I hate that I cannot say my name, not only to show %100 support for Sheriff Hickman, but to show that I am not one of the deputies or ex- deputies who Jim Trammell has promise a grand promotion if he is elected. But I wont “HARP” on that.
Nice try

It is most defiantly him, and if I can figure out how to get his Boone County records and divorce paper unsealed I will post them so that people can see what kind of person he is. WHY would a person running for public office Seal his County records if he was not hiding something. This is easy for anyone to verify just call the Boone County Clerk’s office and see what they tell you about getting a copy.
I wonder if some of this ex-wives would be willing to get a copy to publish. I would guess that since they are named in the paperwork they would be able to get a copy even if it is seal. After all it is their records to.

I was divorced 20 years ago and I hope no one can even see what kind of property settlement we had. That was personal and a private matter that only my x and me needs to know about. If you do get his I hope you get the sheriffs from his 1st wife. I hear that is really good and could back up what has happened to people at the Sheriffs office.
