55 cases of nepotism is an all time high and may break a Tennessee record! Sheriff Graybeal's response "Everybody does it!" Time for change! We need a new sheriff! Vote for Craig Ford!

We do need a new sheriff and twelve years is already too long. I support term limits of two four year terms for all offices! This current sheriff has gotten too complacent and it's time to step aside and give someone else a chance!

Oh its true. HE has employed his mentally unstable son, his drug using and dealing daughter and his son in law But that being said just about everyone that gets in office does it on some level. I just question the man morals and judgment more.

How low can you go? It seems pretty low. How much can you lie? It seems there is no end to that! Craig Ford hired Graybeal's son. You may say Fred Phillips did, but Craig was head of the board who endorsed that he be hired. Deputy Graybeal is an excellent officer and deserves every promotion he has acquired. Sheriff Graybeal did not hire his son in law. He was hired well before he took office and he and his wife fell in love and got married as some do that work together. Sheriff did in fact hire his daughter(that is the only family member he hired). You should really go back on your medications because you are hallucinating. The baseless name calling is uncalled for and you must have a problem that you should seek help for. Sheriff Graybeal has always been an upstanding, professional individual, with integrity that is well known all over the State of Tennessee! Craig Ford on the other hand has no conscience and will do and say anything to help himself. I have seen posts where he has had questionable liaisons with a certain Pike person that was witnessed by a few. Graybeal has no such skeletons in his closet. He and his wife have a wonderful marriage that has stood the test of time. I have seen them together and envy that type of love and dedication.
Shame shame on you for maligning such a wonderful family!

Time for a change.....I lost all confidence in the department a few years ago when I was wrongfully accused of a fender- bender...I still believe to this day, the person that was the cause of the accident paid the deputy off to write the report saying it was my fault...Even the one that backed into me offered to give me a $100.00 to not call 911 ....and when I tried to get it made right,Graybeal sent me a letter stating I'd have to go to court..I knew right then there was no justice for the people that tries to do right..so I hope and pray we elect Craig Ford as our next sheriff of Washington County!!

Graybeal is a good and decent man. He is what I strive to emulate everyday. It saddens me greatly that people have attacked him for his willingness to take all the facts in and not make a rash decision. This is what we need in law enforcement. Ed Graybeal cares about people.

If he is elected hopefully you will not get a work out buddy respond to your call. You could end up with a steroid induced smack down like ______when he wrecked his motorcycle. Sometimes cops are a holes and Jonesborough PD is a breeding ground.

I notice you did not deny the drug abuse of his daughter or the mental stability of the son and regruardless of what you claim you don't think Graybeal pushed to have his son hired or his son in law promoted if you think that then you need to check your own meds. Graybeal is hardly a decent man. Just another politician trying to get re elected and he will throw anyone under the bus to do it. Including his family.

No one said anything because its too stupid to bother. His son in law hasnt EVER been promoted.i dont know His daughter but it seems she works and is otherwise a homebody from what i can see. And i do KNOW LT graybeaand hel has a sound mind.

I only post this reponse since u are beating a dead horse.

Just more sillyness and lies that doesnt do anyone any good and just makes ford look more and more sad.
Sheriff Graybeal is one of the most straight forward men ive ever met
