I am voting Borders, for several reasons. The top reason is the he cares for his deputies. He knows them by name without having to look at their nametags. Do you really think the others running would come out and play softball, like he did. Look at what he wears to work, not a suit and tie, but the same green uniforms everyone else wears. He shows that he is one of them, which makes him easier to talk to. He does not need to be the "corporation leader" like many need to be. He cares and that is the number one reason behind my vote.

i am told he was never a cop, granted a high ranking jailer, but not an admin guy with a education or background. the gov did do the right thing to permote from within under those tragic events with the sudden death of Daniels, but next election it is a new ball game. Borders would be smart not to seek election and take retirement. The dirt comes out when you run for elected office, and Borders has plenty all the way back to Osceola County Sheriff's Office. Yes, the Gov did the correct quick fix for short term, but, the job is for a real educated, qualified, tenuered leader, certainly not a jailer with friends in high offices. Just my opinion. Knup was a crook, everyone knew it, and do remember that he was the one that brought Borders to LCSO to that top spot.
Borders was a Deputy before he became a jailor. He ran the prison the way it should be run. All the employees under his guidance will tell you he is a good man. He is honest, straight forward, he does not use his position for his own good. Get out there and meet him you might find out what and who he is.

Dusty,
Have you ever heard the term "Rectum Cranial Inversion" this refers to a person who has their
head up their behind. Borders is the Sheriff because an idiot Governor urged by a person who at the time was thought to be the most likely person to be elected Governor of Florida, who reportedly has an alternative lifestyle, selected him to be the Sheriff of Lake County after the untimely death of Sheriff Daniels.
Every one who works for a Sheriff in a certified position can be referred too as a Deputy Sheriff.
Borders entire career until just a few months before Daniels death was in the jail. Osceola and Lake County. He is the least qualified person
to seek the office. Of course with 750 persons plus families running around the county making like they are supporting him, he has a big ego.
He is there because of happenstance..........
He is not qualified and probably could not run his
own household, if he had one!
Now, get off the couch and show us what kind of stupity you can really conger up! Decent folks in Lake County are not as stupid as you and yours would like to think. They know what's going on
and they're keeping notes and waiting for the election. I want to hear from you on August 27th 2008

Hey Ms Stone, don't you feel crowded out some time. We can't believe you're so stupid you don't know the reason your hubbie is so sore in the back
side is because he is spending so much time supporting Borders. AS usual you are the last to know. Tell him to keep holding his ankles
for ole borders. If borders were to win by some
miracle your husband might become a 4 stripe corporal. If not he'll be looking for a job.
10-4 on stuff it ole borders be stuffing it ever
chance he gets.

Actually I am not Ms. Stone. I am a really a wife of a deputy (a real Mrs.)

However, it nice to see such fine educated guys out there like you. Why is it when someone, like myself, comes on here to express her opinion, you have to throw mud on them with such disgust? Seriously, it is as if I am reading a post from a 5th grader.

I stand by my opinion of voting for Borders, if you chose not to do so, that is your opinion.

It's kind of funny that all the mudslinging is coming from one side of the track. It sounds to me like someone is running scared.

I have worked for the Sheriff's Office long enough, so that I have worked for both Mysinger as road Patrol Capt and Sheriff Borders. I can tell you, without hesitation, that Sheriff Borders is the man for the job. Mysinger will, "with all his wisdom" run the Sheriff's office into the ground. Mysinger's latest statement, that he holds the approval of 70% of the Sheriff's office, must be a typo.

Aside from that, do you have nothing better to say, then to drum up felonious propaganda about the Sheriff's lifestyle? Come on.

Im Sure that there is some kind of false hope with any canditate that is choosen. What counts is standing behind who will be elected as the New Sheriff. It takes knowledge, Know how and experience and the ability to be a good leader instead of a follower.
What Im reading and hearing is Sheriff Borders knows everyone's name & he has given pay raises across the board (I would be happy to work there to). You also like it that he puts the same color pants on that the whole department wears. What difference does that make? This is not a part of the voting issue.
For all those out there who have taken the time to write negative comments about Mysinger why don't you try to take some time and look at his Education, Criminal Law Experience, and serving his Country proudly. These are issues that are more important then slamming his hair.

I say we exhume the body of Sheriff McCall and just place him behind the sheriffs desk and let him intimidate people again.

McCall dead would make a better sheriff than this Borders dude that likes to play with little boys.

One thing about McCall, he was accused of a lot of things and never convicted of one of them. Only time will tell if the same goes for Borders. Keep your young boys away from this sucker, he's always looking for his next victim. I guess that's his form of intimidation. What goes around comes around.
