Good Work? what are you drinking?
He has done nothing more or less than any other who held the office. He is just a media hound.
If he were doing a Good Job then you wouldn't hear any thing in news about crime or drugs. If he gets elected again it will be the same ole same ole and they will not be a single dent in the drug problem in Laurel County or Crime.

I just want to say I don't think he is doing a bad job. However I wish that all of these people that are saying he is doing so much better than anyone else has would show me some statistics saying so because I'm not buying it.

I agree we need to see statistics on just how this Sheriff has performed. We also need to see the arrest and the conviction rate. If the arrest rate is higher than convictions then their is a problem. If the conviction rate is on par with arrests then I would say good job.

We need to not only see statistics since he has been in office but we also need to see statistics of at least the last two or three Sheriff's and see how they compare.

Also people want to blame the judges and prosecutors for not being able to get convictions. I believe a lot of it is that the sheriffs office wants the publicity so much that they rush to do as many cases as possible. Then they don't get sufficient evidence to hold these people on so judges and prosecutors can't get a conviction. Which makes the judges and prosecutors look bad but it doesn't hurt root because he's still making arrest even if sometimes they are sloppy ones

One last point I'd like to make about sheriff root and his love of publicity. I am no angel I am a recovering drug user myself been clean for 2 years. On occasion I run into someone I used to run with and was told that the buy that he arrested someone on in the whole July 4 roundup was made back in January. Why wait 7 months to arrest them. The only reason I can see is to get more publicity for the round up. A lot of lives could have been changed for the better if he hasn't have continued to let this person sale for another 6 months getting more and more people hooked. Rant over.. 6 months would've made a big difference in my situation back when I was using.

John Root has done a fantastic job and he continues to do a great job. If you want facts or statistics, read your paper or better yet
Visit the jails. I give you one better than that, and it will be much easier for you, they post a lot of their arrest on Facebook! He's done an excellent job for this county! He is the ONLY sheriff who did anything where I live, and we thank him for it! His office is not under investigation like past sheriff's. There is no budget issues, like with past sheriffs. He's not laying off employees like past sheriff's. Actually, the sheriffs office just hired another employee a day or so ago! This man and his staff has done good for this county! And the hard working and honest people know it! If John and his staff continues doing what they have done in the past and he wants to continue his position as sheriff of Laurel County, than he has my vote, my families vote and my communities vote!!!!!

John Root has my vote. Sheriff Yaden was a joke! Never did anything. Couldn't even manage the office he worked or the budget for it. He laid off more people than worked for him. John and his officers cleaned up the drug heads where I live. I will vote for him.

If you want the drugs, and meth and meth labs going full speed in this county than don't vote for John!
But if you want this county to continue being cleaned up by a honest and caring sheriff and his officers, than you will vote for John Root!!

The papers only have more stories in them because john notify them every time he does the slightest thing. The jails are crowded because we have taken a lot of inmates from other counties. As far as fb goes he is the first sheriff to have a page because that is how much he enjoys publicity. The fb page is full of errors all the time and often drags peoples names through the mud without any actual evidence
