New chief deputy new jail administer is what the other candidates are promising. It's the only way it will happen. Marty is part of the old system. Marty has no college. No business experience. Marty is a good ole boy trying save jobs. Old jobs

If there is not a change at the jail administrators job, they will have to pull deputies in to work the jail. The turnover and morale is so bad out there now it is pathetic. More than half of the jailers have been there a year or less, and alot have only been there for less than 3 or 4 months. All the good jailers that have been there for a while, have been cussed to, lied to, and just dont care anymore. Its bad when you have more people leaving the jail than ones being hired. They work short handed all the time, then get cussed out for any number of reasons the admin can think of to make them feel better. Thing is the top 3 are worried and paranoid right now, but will probably stab each other in the back when the nut cuttin comes around come november. The front office is just as bad right now. Its gonna get interesting in the next few months.
yea right

I would also like to know, but as for Rick Thomas I have known the man for several years and he has always been a straight up guy. You make not like the answer he gives u but he's not gonna lie to you. I think he's a hell of a guy. Duncan is also a good man.
Lol! Rick Thomas wouldn't know the truth if it smacked him in the face.

I worked with him as well and all I can say is he's human he doesn't make any more mistakes than anyone else does. In fact there was an incident where he showed mercy and judgement to me when we worked together. He was my boss he has my vote for sure
Prediction

Republican side - Dwight Tosh and Paul Culbreath

Tosh wins in a landslide. Culbreath has no business running and just like the Presidential nomination for the republican party, we really don't have a good choice here.

Democrat side - Larry Kelly, Marty Boyd and John Shipman

Kelly has a little more business running that Culbreath and either would be a joke. Shipman, well everyone knows Shipman and he really needs to back out. Boyd wins this one easily.

Sheriff Race - Dwight Tosh and Marty Boyd

Tosh is retired from State Police but even his own family questions him running for this position. Boyd is the only candidate that truly knows what is involved with running the Sheriffs Department and should win this race. I have 1st hand knowledge of all candidates with the exception of Tosh and I feel his age is above what we need as a Sheriff for Craighead County.

Prediction: Marty Boyd will be Sheriff of Craighead County and anything else would be a huge mistake.

Tosh and Boyd in the Nov. vote. Tosh has more expreience running a Law Enforcement Dept.,Boyd is only a gopher for Jack and Rick , he cannot lead the Sheriff's Office.

Someone needs to look back at jail administrators and see that until this one there was not a turn over rate as high as there are now.

I agree! Good God old man retire already & put us all out of our suffering. I guess he is kissing every butt around to keep his job. His son WILL need to use his position AGAIN to screw over law abiding people & blame his actions on a child. That's SO low!!!
