Sheriff Midgett shows up only at election time and only if someone is challenging him. Where has he been for the past 8 years? Certainly not out in the county with the citizens.
Doughtie coaches kids sports, is active in the community and still has time to work as an investigator. Doughtie is well respected in the law enforcement community.
As for real world, Midgett hasn’t seen the “real” world in almost 30 years, I would bet the man could not identify the working end of a pair of handcuffs. I mean that with ABSOLUTELY no disrespect to Sheriff Midgett, he has been managing for 30 some years, and not done any “real” police work. By his own admission, he is a “manager”. However, this county needs a LEADER, not just a manager. All of the committees he is a part of are excellent. But, committees alone do not solve problems, you must have boots on the ground to solve problems. And you MUST support those boots on the ground.
Where has the enforcement of the prescription drug abuse gone? A few years ago, there was active enforcement. Now, I believe the policy of the supervisor of investigation is that prescription drug abuse is “not a real crime”. So unless it is heroin, cocaine or marijuana, it is of no consequence. That seems contrary to what Sheriff Midgett continues to say.
Doughtie is a much better choice for Sheriff of Dare County!!
Cut and paste from the Tea Party Handbook, Thought you could come up with something real but I guess not. You just keep riding around all day taking down signs with Doug and you both will be just fine.

F the silly Tea Party. All Dems can do is say the words Tea Party. Who gives a rats ass what party anyone is in in a local election. They could be in the Nazi party for all I care, I look at the issues and what they have done and what they can do not what stupid party they are in. Dems need not be too damn proud let me tell you, but that is state and federal not local. When a dog catcher runs I don't care what party they are in nor do I care about sheriff or commissioner or town clerk. Issues, views, experience, track record these I care about locally not what stupid party.

Scott, this is not Mayberry. You NEED a Sheriff that is a manager. However, he does not micro-manage because he doesn't have to. He has an excellent staff (which is excellently trained and managed) that can take good care of Dare County as it has been doing for the past 8 years. It seems that his opponent's supporters can't think of anything to say that is wrong with the Sheriff's Office so they dream up all these wishy washy observations that are so unrealistic and very untrue.

Aka Mr. or Mrs. "Scott",
You obviously understood wrong. I know, lets educate you some concerning your foolish statement about the prescription drug comment. Read the October 19th, 2010 (Tuesday) addition of the Coastland Times and starting on the front page read the "Dare CASA panel reviews progress on project to combat prescription drug abuse" article. You'll certainly see that Sheriff Midgett not only is deeply involved in this joint project in combating prescription drugs but also is among the panel of speakers.

Then take notice on page 5A, you'll see that Dare CASA then presented Sheriff Midgett with the "Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year" Award.

Then go to the Sheriff's Office and ask Sheriff Midgett himself to show you their statistics, arrest, seizures etc., on ALL illegal controlled substances, you may be enlightened.

Be certain that Sheriff Midgett's "policy" concerning combating all illegal and abused drugs in our community is of HIGH priority.

Aka Mr. or Mrs. "Scott" or whoever you really are...you almost sound like a disgruntled employee with thinking you have something to gain by your comments?!

Sheriff Rodney Midgett has served our community very well and will continue to serve admirably over the next four years as Sheriff of Dare County.
