I know Steve would do a fantastic job as commissioner. It is past time to elect a commissioner with fresh ideas and an open door policy. Finally we would have accountability and a chance to end the sole commissioner, my way or the highway attitude. Get behind this guy and support him !

I agree with most of your post. However, you insinuate that Kendall doesn't have an open door policy. This is far from the truth. I have been in the courthouse numerous times and his door is always open. Even if he has someone in the office with him he will frequently still invite you in.

You are correct, Gerdes will do a fantastic job if he can dislodge the incumbent.

Gerdes will have an open door policy AND an open mind. I agree he will be a terrific commissioner.

Kind of like the current Sheriffs "open door policy" his door is only open to the paper or someone else who will boost his ego.

Also notice Gerdes facebook page. The only one commenting are his friends and Chris Clintons family. Gerdes has no business as commissioner, this is just Clintons push to get his hands on more funds he does not need.

Holy crap! Friends commenting on your Facebook page? What is this world coming to? And I'd be afraid if I were Bill if Clinton's family is supporting Gerdes! There's a lot of them!

The open mind part of your statement is the most important part of your post. That's what we need.

You can't be serious? Are you really going to go on facebook votes? LOL! That's funny sh** right there! Considering the majority of voters probably don't even have facebook pages. Gaahhhh!

OK...make your false statements...

1. Clinton does not have an open door policy and won't see anyone except press?????

Truth: Clinton spends most of EVERY day talking to citizens about their problems...he gives his cell phone out to citizens for goodness sake! He returns phone calls! He can't even eat lunch because everyone wants to talk to him...and I have NEVER heard him complain because he believes he was elected to serve...SERVE!

Hint: Try getting in touch with UC sheriff...OR his chief deputy...

2. Clinton wants his hands on more money???

Truth: Unlike most surrounding counties, Clinton's administration works diligently to work within the budget he is given, even though his suggestions are never even discussed and BK took money out of his budget Clinton's FIRST year! Check with SO for how thrifty Clinton's adminstration is and how they have actually INCREASED services, responded to more calls, and reduced crime, with less money...

Hint: check out UCSO's overbudget concerns every single year to the tune of over $200,000 just in 2011...Yeah, Clinton really busts the budget doesn't he....

And for those of you who say that Clinton wants 14 more deputies...that is also false. That was in the 20 year plan that Kendall insisted he submit two years ago, and based on GA Sheriff's Association recommendations for number of calls now and anticipated-in the TWENTY YEAR plan!

DO has this nonsense on his website....well...you see what you could expect from him if he were sheriff....and it is not the truth....

Talk about going back to the dark ages...

Is that why he is doing breakfast with bill at the local restaurants ? Sounds like a desperation move to me. I appreciate the free meal but it won't result in a vote. Steve doesn't have to buy me breakfast for my vote.

"how could clinton go over budget? I mean it is one million dollars.."

That is your question and comment? Are you kidding me? You mean you actually think a million dollars is "alot"?

You think salaries for deputies and jailers, insurance and other benefits, vehicles and maintenance and fuel, food, water and electricity for 40 inmates, uniforms, supplies, radios, and other items, training, office supplies all come cheap, or for free?...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

That is the only comment that question deserves!
