Why does it matter? That has nothing to do with this election. I personally think somebody is going to great lengths to dirty someone's reputation because they are a threat to them. Shame on you.

Gamble did not do well tonight. Crews did well. Turner did very well. The others did so so. Gamble lost it with me when he went off on a tangent about cleaning up the streets in order to help with selling houses.

In spite of, Gamble is the best choice. I know that has never mattered in elections here. If a person is knowledgeable and intelligent but void of Kow Klub endorsement you people are against them.

I was talking to my neighbor after the forum and she made a interesting statement.

"This place is full of racist, bigots and people void of intelligence. I've been in St. Mary's for 12 years and it's the same pattern every election."

Gibbs had better answers than Gamble. Race has nothing to do with my statements. By far Sweatt is the most qualified on paper, not Gamble. In my opinion Gamble, based on last night is near or at the bottom.

True, but the current list is incomplete without the addition of Tea Party nut cases and leftist radicals.

The reaction from the audience. He was the best speaker, and the people liked what he said. However speaking in front of people is what he does. Some of the others got flustered.

I agree that Turner did very well, followed very closely by Shavon Gibbs. Turner was knowledgeable and professional. Shavon was as well but obviously was not as comfortable speaking before a large group. Sweat looked like a line cook in a Bar-B-Q place and answered every question with "I've been doing it 9 years", if that's the level of respect he gives concerned citizens then I certainly don't want him as a Judge. Debbie Middleton acted as though the forum was a waste of her time and said there are no problems at the Probate Court except they need to hire more staff because of gun permits, and we really don't need to worry about any fraud 'cause Glenda Fodrell has it under control. Rich Gamble may be a great guy and I certainly appreciate his service but he did a deplorable job at the forum. He seemed confused by several of the questions, babbled on about "Litter is my thing" and said he would stop fraud in the probate office by getting the staff to like him. Allison Crews did o.k., talked up her years in the court house but I don't think experience as a clerk will give her the qualifications to clean up and run the probate office.
Turner and Gibbs top my list.

I went to the forum last night as an undecided voter. Not knowing any of the candidates personally it was very interesting, Mr. Turner acted as if he was on a podium preaching at times I felt the need to look for my Bible, he is a very fast talker but really doesn't say anything when he is done. Ms. Gibbs spoke very well, she gave good answers based on the questions asked and stayed on point. Mr Sweat almost seemed the forum was beneath him and slubberd through his questions I really thought he would carry a strong presence being an attorney but was disappointed in his showing. Ms. Middleton spoke of her families strong "camden county" background and that probate court was now running fine under the direction of the new hire that used to run a bank that now has everything running smoothly, other than working 9-5 at the courthouse nothing really stood out with me that she said. Mr Gamble, oh my he has definately mastered the art of public speaking but I am not one of his high school classes, he spoke very highly of himself constantly and then got stuck on using litter control as a way to boost the housing market he lost me early on. Ms. Crews gave good answers I liked that she had done her homework and stays up on upcoming legistalive changes. I really feel after sitting through the entire debate that Crews will be my Candidate of Choice.

Thanks or very well done comments.
I'l try to be at the next one.
I have a vison of a probate court session breaking into a flash church service with swaying gospelel singers in gold lame gowns presided over by the Reverend Judge Turner. About 5 minutes into the servive, Rev. Judge Turner bangs the gavel and proclaims "Live, from Woodbine, it's the Probate Believers'Jubilee, starring Rev/Judge Martin with Sister Mary Ann on the organ! We are gathered here today, Brothers and Sisters, to dispense some mighty justice for the Lord! Can I have an Amen?"

"Allison Crews did o.k., talked up her years in the court house but I don't think experience as a clerk will give her the qualifications to clean up and run the probate office.

But Turner's experience as a radio evangelist, air conditioning contractor, and recoverung alcoholic struck you as ample qualification.

Could you expand on that? I'm a bit puzzled by the logic.

While experientially, air conditioning contractor may be a step up from wrecker driver, I'll grant you, but is that it?

As an unrecovered dicquewad, how can you go out on a limb for Turner and Gibbs? Your handlers have different ideas.
Oh, you had two spelling errors.

It seems fairly clear that there is nothing I or anyone else could say to change your opinion of Mr. Turner, nor would I try. You appear to have a vehement dislike for the fact that he is a Christian. I am a Christian myself so that is a point in his favor in my book. "recovering alcoholic"? I haven't heard anything about it and if he is recovered, that too is a point in his favor.
Turner has by far the most extensive management experience, 30 years with 30+ employees and now manages a mid-size business. Shavon manages only herself in St. Marys, and prior to that was military enlisted. Beau said he has had up to 5 employees. Debbie is self employed. Rich manages high school kids and Allison has never been management, and frankly I have to wonder why her own boss has promoted people around her-maybe she's a great clerk but not management material?
In my opinion Mr. Turner and Ms. Gibbs gave the most knowledgeable responses when asked about improving the office. The difference is that Mr. Turner has already successfully used the management skills all the candidates agree are needed (except Debbie), Ms. Gibbs has not.

Sweatt has experience as a traffic judge, not Probate. While our Probate court handles traffic tickets it also handles probate cases and DNR violations, which Beau has no more experience with than any other candidate. He might have had an edge because he is an attorney but after his showing last night he lost any confidence I may have had in his law degree. There hasn't been a lawyer in the Probate court in its history in Camden and it hasn't been a problem. On the other hand, Amanda Williams proved that just because someone has a law degree doesn't make them any more trustworthy. Beau thinks he should be elected because he's a lawyer, I'd rather elect someone who can make our probate court run efficiently.
Turner and Gibbs still top my list.

Wow! you know what Beau thinks. What about now? Maybe you should run with powers like that. Im sure Turner and Gibbs are good people, but dont try and put blue collar vs white collar. Beau is as down to earth as any of the canidates. Just has more experience in law than the rest of them

So, following your logic, if he were also a former homosexual, transvestite, crack and meth head, and child molester, but "saved", that would make him utterly undefeatable in your book, right?

So, if you are ever in his court in the docket, you figure a little sub rosa "Praise the Lord" muttered Martins way will serve you well, eh? Yes, regrettably, you are probably right.

I guess we poor, non-Bible-thumbibg heathens would just be shoit out of luck in Reveerand /Judge Turners court but then, that is an EXTREME plus is your book, isn't it, you ignorant, civically irrespsonsible, bigot Christian ass!

It is not the responsibility of the damned probate judge to "manage the court," you silly shit. We are not looking for a
who knows a compressor from an evaporator, a P&L from a balance sheet, how to make up a payroll, or order the damned office supplies.

But then, come clean. You don't give a shit about anything but his being a local, White G.O.B. with the Bill Smith seal of approval, a fellow Christian bigot, and someone who knows you and will give you the preferential treatment all of you damned xenophobic tribals view as your friggin birthright.

Are you in his church, listen to his "testimony" on that "Litehouse" (spelling intentional) radio station run by those two Hafer nuts, or both?

Why, hell, Brother, you could probably get Reverend Judge Martin to act as an agent of the Almighty by furthering your desire to smite your enemies should they fall into his hands.
