In yesterdays paper, no one was listed as running against the current sheriff. Was that just an error on the newspaper's part, or did Mr Taylor back out ? I have been reading all your posts here with interest, because we're new here and don't know about any of the politicians locally.

The helicopters were obtained through a federal surplus program and are funded by the drug fund, which gets its money from drug-related arrests and seizures. When used appropriately, the helicopters cost the citizens of Warren County virtually nothing.

Well I just can't take the lies that the Danice Taylor people are saying now about our Sheriff.... Number one Danice Taylor is and will always be an idiot... He was the absolute worst employee the dept. had but the sheriff propped him up because he felt sorry for him. Talk about being lazy... I live in Irving College and know that no one likes Danice here. As far as nepotism goes he hired those family members Which stand at 2 now before the law was passed.... Danice is incompetent and could in no way be the sheriff in this county... I know that the current sheriff will win by a landslide once again... Danice will have to eat a little humble pie when it is all said and done... So enjoy this time while you can cause it will soon be at an end... Jackie Matheny stands for everything that is right and good in this county and Danice is a blithering idiot.... Like I said I know because I've worked with both of them...I can't wait for the debates so everyone can see how stupid Danice really is... Should be fun hope you guys are there...

We will definitely be there! Landslide or no landslide, it is about time Danice ran for sheriff. He doesn't tell people what they want to hear then run and talk about them like dogs behind their back. He has always been one to tell it like it is and if you don't like it then well at least it was the truth. He doesn't hold back when it comes to something he believes in. I have never seen anyone love their job more than he does. Saying he is an idiot...wow, something he did must have hit a nerve. Oh, I guess he is just running against your "brother" and that upsets you. He has practically ran that sheriff's dept for years and never tried to take the limelight. Always did everything to make the sheriff look good. That was his job. Now he has a chance to do for the community and do things right. Jackie must not have felt to sorry for him to have made him his chief deputy. He wanted someone that he knew would work their tail off and make him look good. He did just that! It doesn't matter who wins. Warren County needs to sit back and think about the future it wants to have.

Good of you to inquire about sheriff's race. Danice Taylor is running for sheriff. He didn't back out. Please don't take everything you read badly. The info about his brother-in-law was not something he was in on. He will talk open and honestly about the whole situation. Every person has someone in their family who screws up or does something wrong. Why should he have bad things said about him that he had nothing to do with and had no control over? Danice is a good honest man and one of the hardest workers i've ever known in my life. No one person could have loved their job or their deputies more than he did. He was always there for them no matter what. And they know that. One "ex employee" is no longer there but loved him when he was there. After quitting his job there still came in to see Danice on his days off. You couldn't ask more a more dedicated man and he would make a great sheriff. He knows the law and knows the county.

I guess, if Taylor gets in, then his relative, "Miller" which was busted with 50lbs of marijuana won't have anything at all to worry about..
Like Danice didn't know.. Good Grieve Folks
he didn't know. and miller is in the feds hands now. he served his time for what he did and is on probation. taylor wouldn't have a thing to do with it if he did get sheriff. good grieve....seems like it wouldn't take much to figure that one out. give the guy a chance and why look down on him for it? after all, have you seen how against marijuana he is? do you ever read the paper and see how many plants he has taken out or warren county through use of the helicopter that he obtained without "NO" help from the current sheriff. WOW!! wouldn't it be pretty dumb of him to preach against it then endorse it for miller? he stands against it and always will.

Go to www.danicetaylor.com it should explain alot. And what the people are saying that happened at the Sheriffs Department was witnessed and true im sorry to say but it was policy violations not illegal activity. Still no one person should be above county wide policy that should hold true for everyone. Look at all the tax money that has been wasted

Has everyone forgot the lawsuit a lady won against Matheny she was a employee that told she would not vote for him. He demoted her then fired her when the case went to court he lost had to pay 15K and our county 50K. If you dont recall it google jackie matheny lawsuit and read. He may be alot of things but snowwhite and honest are not two of them.

that is how this town is we call it the southern slander they only report for their side did u see the wed front page they did Vernice Dunlap just as bad by quoting plenty of bull from Levie Glenn but only printing two points from his interview. By the way we need a change at both the Sheriff Dept and Road Dept. The past two or three years ony prove if you leave any good person in office long enough they become corrupt.

Is it just me, or is blaming the candidate for the sins of his relatives kind of out there ? I can't really see that what his family does matters a whole lot, unless somehow it ties back to him.

Also is "double dipping " (two jobs within the county ) against the law here ?

I really want to do the right thing when I vote and take it very seriously, but being new here I don't know for sure who is the best candidate for different jobs. I think voting out the incumbents is the best way for me to go.

I also didn't realize that the newspaper is politically slanted, but it should come as no surprise .... most are.

I followed the above link to Danice Taylors website and see that he is interested also in spending lots of money and increasing the aviation fleet...or does he mean increasing the usage.? So monetarily, where will the difference be between the two candidates ? Doesn't seem like much, so I can't use that as a marker. I am however concerned about the nepotism and Mr Matheny's attitude that he can do whatever he chooses as long as he is Sheriff. So, that will go on the "con" side of my list. So far though, the sides are pretty even.

I too have read it, and I interpet that to mean that he wants to expand their use, not the size of the fleet. The helicopters are funded by money from seizures and were given to the county by the feds so they don't really cost much at all, if anything. Danice was the biggest part of getting that done. He operated them cheaply for over ten years so I'm sure he can do it again. And wayne is right about the civil rights lawsuit where a federal jury found that the sheriff persecuted an employee for her political beliefs. I'm sorry, I thought this was America. There's another lawsuit going on right now for the wrongful death of an inmate too. And as for the nepotism, Jackie makes no attempt to hide that. It's common knowledge that several family members currently do work there or have in the past. There's also an investigator who is directly supervised by his own dad.

I read in todays paper that Danice Taylor found out he doesn't qualify to be on the ballot because he doesn't have a POST certificate. ( Police Officers Standards in Training ) I have to agree with his statement that it's awfully coincidental that he finds this out AFTER the closing date for filing to run for office. Smacks of underhanded actions if you ask me.
