Ford has ties to some highly questionable former deputies and Jonesborough PSO's. Some have moved on to teach marksmanship and some have moved on to climb polls but would he hire anyone that may have been manufacturing and illegal drug? Now he works in Jonesborough in made up position and even got ghost voter Dale Ford a job after he was defeated in 2012 by newcomer Vanhuss. Too may administrators for such a small town as Jonesborough dont you think?

Obliviously you do not like facts! Only the board of Mayor and alderman hire in Jonesborough. You said it yourself, "Former" officers !? Sounds like your the one with issues!

Yes you are correct however one minor detail was not mentioned. They vote on Craig Ford's recommendation. Now that Jerome is gone Wolfe and Ford are not held accountable for any decisions.

I bet those deputies working part time for Shooter's Edge will be captains if Craig Ford is elected. Just think the current sheriff approves deputies part time employment requests to work. Now shooter's edge appears to sponsor the Facebook campaign "citizens for a safer Washington County." Those Hollywood people couldn't write a better script.

Well as far as Craig Ford goes.... at least he wouldn't have half of his family a job in the department..The current Sheriff. And it's a shame!! he has a lot of good men and women in the department that work hard and he treats them with little to no respect...He has become complacent and he does not respect the good people of Washington County.. Just the one's whom can help him get another term as Sheriff!! Everytime the current Sheriff has been elected all I see is new Deputies out on the street (campaign promises)... What gives Graybeal???? you forgot about the good people of Washington County!!!!!! It's time for a CHANGE!!!!! Craig Ford stands behind what he says...GO Craig Ford!! Take a stand in Washington County and clean out the the riff raff and useless dead weight... To Washington County they deserve much more than they are receiving!!!!

Once again go fact check! After speaking with some alderman, he actually recommended they not hire him due to the neopitisim policy! I guess you Graybeal folks at the dept that have gotten all those promotions and schools over those folks that come to and work daily but have no connections still can't get your facts ....

Maybe I should run for sheriff so I can hire my family and friends!? If your boss tells you to hire their son and daughter your gonna hire or find another job. They must think us common folks are stupid!

No I am not going to call you stupid just ignorant of the facts. Craig Ford was the Chief Deputy when he hired Graybeal's son. Craig Ford was Graybeal's boss until he was demoted to assistant to the sheriff. This is a fact ask Mr Ford.

The way I see it the sheriff hires and fires. Everybody below him does what he says. Maybe you know something I don't like someone else is running the sheriffs department? I hear his daughter and her husband work there to?!

I just saw Dale Ford "working" or shall I say watching all the hard working men from the town highway department. Now that is a good paying job I wish that I could have applied for.

Yeah Craig also hired his other uncle Mike when he was Chief Deputy at Washington County. Mike still works there and is a supervisor. Craig makes sure his family is taken care of. Considering Dale Ford's position with Jonesborough. It's like Craig is screaming oh yeah my nepotism isn't as bad as yours.

Well let's get our facts straight...... Mike Ford was hired in by Fred Phillips as an independent contractor to begin with..... He is over the food service in the jail... and was also a Reserve officer as well.. Craig did not hire him.. Get it right or don't spread it!!

I just received a horrible Let's restore trust " prepared to protect" letter in my mailbox. I always walk my small child to the mailbox and he gets the mail out and takes it to his mommy. While I was walking him back to the house he started asking me why the man has boo boos. I looked down and to my surprise there is a man on the mail out that appears to have been beaten up. Thank you Craig Ford for exposing my small child to your despicable election campaign tactics. You are a real class act.

Sounds like you are one of Graybeal's 55 relatives who's desperate to keep their job! As for your son, keep him in a bubble so he won't see any boo boos!
