Talked to all 3 gentlemen over the past 2 weeks. Thought I would share my first impressions and predictions.

Parsons was all ego. Has lots of big plans but they don't seem feasible. Appears to want the title and not the job. Didn't he put a stripclub in Teays Valley in the mid 90's?

Deweese is experienced and has the help of being the soldier. Who doesn't want to vote for the soldier? nice guy, talked more about the national guard than Putnam county.

Bud Lett is really tall. Very experienced and knows the county. Extremely well spoken, humble, and friendly. Genuinely cares about Putnam county.

My vote at this time goes to Bud Lett.

I see the race finishing. DeWeese, Lett, Parsons. Afterall, he's a soldier.

Wasnt Parson's the one they called radar Rick? He was in trouble at Charleston pd all the time? I do remember him owning the strip club and the bar over by Papa Johns where the big rig backed over the guy. Deweese seems to be a nice guy. Lett I know was a trooper and Dea. I think I would go with Deweese. He is a retired deputy and should know the people.

Mr. Parsons was the one they called Radar Rick at Charleston PD. He chased a loaded ambulance all the way to CAMC General, one that was on an emergency call. He did own a strip club at one time.

I met Mr. Lett and he is the man for the job. He wants to get the drugs out of Putnam County. He even mentioned that more money isnt needed for the department. The money is there it just needs spent in the right places. Deweese is also a good candidate.

I usually care less about something insignificant like local politics, but it would be wise of everyone to not vote for "radar" Rick parsons. He is unstable and will focus more on pulling over drivers going 1 mile over the speed limit than anything else. Research all the trouble he stirred up elsewhere.

Rick Parsons is a soldier, too. He actually has way more military and law enforcement experience than either DeWeese or Lett.

DeWeese has been a deputy for 16 years and no one can name anything great he did. He's just a cog in the machine looking to move up the ladder.

Bud Lett is a democrat. He can't win in Putnam County. Rick Parsons will beat DeWeese in May and Lett in November.

I think Steve has done 3 tours and is still active and carries the rank of command sgt/maj. He was the domestic violence officer for years. Only thing I can recall radar Rick ever doing was running a bar,driving drunk and running gambling machines and rolling drunks. Seems I remember him in trouble at Charleston pd aswell.

Didn't Parsons own or manage a strip club up in Teays Valley while he was a cop in Charleston?

BTW Earning the nickname radar Rick is an awesome thing to base your career on. Arresting people for dui while you serve drunks to make a profit shows some real morals.

Parsons never owned a strip club. A simple search of the WV Secretary of State's database proves that. Amazing what a little bit of research will get you.

Parsons and DeWeese hold the same rank - just different specializations.

Parsons also never drove drunk and was certainly never pulled over for it. Once again, something you could research easily. In fact, the opposite is true. He was hit by a drunk driver while he was in his police cruiser. Had to have some surgeries to repair his legs from all the damage.

36 years of military service plus 2 tours in Iraq and 30 years of law enforcement experience and you call him a joke? Have some respect for a decorated veteran. Bet you didn't have the balls to spend 3 years in Iraq. Did ya?
