I read on another thread about cronyism. I consulted wiki for a definition. Cronyism: "Cronyism is partiality to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications. Hence, cronyism is contrary in practice and principle to meritocracy.

Cronyism exists when the appointer and the beneficiary are in social contact; often, the appointer is inadequate to hold his or her own job or position of authority, and for this reason the appointer appoints individuals who will not try to weaken him or her, or express views contrary to those of the appointer. Politically, "cronyism" is derogatorily used."

I then consulted Wiki on Nepotism. "Nepotism is favoritism granted to relatives regardless of merit.[1] The word nepotism is from the Latin word nepos, nepotis (m. "nephew"), from which modern Romanian nepot and Italian nipote, "nephew" or "grandchild" are also descended."

Sound familiar?

Sounds like the Smith Gang to me. They must really be getting desperate to put up those signs against Steverson.

Steverson is the man! Don't pay attention to those
signs...put there by the Myers and J. Dopson (who runs the club in Jax). They are scared and are resorting to extreme measures with those signs.

Why was the County meeting on the 19th canceled? I had an agreement with a local television station to
video the coverage. I smell Johnny poo in this cancellation.

Well, that speaks volumes to me. Smells like "other-poo" to me.

The others just knew that it would descend into a name calling mud slinging three ring circus. You should know by now there cannot be a dignified gathering of adults with differing opinions in Telfair county.

Especially with the SMITH GANG involved. Wise move by our new Sheriff not to be involved.

Putting those pink Citizens against signs was the stupidest political move I've seen in Telfair. I talked to a lot of people who said they where changing their vote to another candidate. A lot of those signs have already been picked up by citizens.
Elections just a few days away.

When candidates lie about something as simple as when they were notified about a forum I wonder how many other lies this candidate may tell. I mean according to the people hosting the event they mailed out letters on the same day. The people holding the event obviously wanted to hold the event or they would not have put it in the paper. So I guess what I'm saying is sounds like the candidate we are talking about just didn't send his letter back in time on purpose because he was scared to be in public and not able to read a scripted answer. Or maybe it's because he really is not the law enforcement expert he claims to be and knows when asked a real question about real problems he could not answer them. Come on people look through the smoke screen, dig deep inside yourself, think about it, and you will know what I have said is the truth. I'm not trying to stir crap here, if you vote for this candidate that we are talking about that's your right and anyone can and should respect that. I just REALLY want everyone to make a good educated decision on the 31st and not just vote for someone because they talk a good game.

Had there been a public forum, the Sheriff would have shown up just
long enough to be dispatched to an "Emergency" and save face.
