Since we all know the scandals and corruption surrounding Sheriff Jones, any business supporting Jones agrees with his unethical behavior and probably conducts business similar to the way the Sheriff runs his department. Don't take a chance on being cheated, say no to any business supporting Sheriff Jones.

Sounds good to me. I wont spend a dime ever at a business that supports a crook. I will start making notes every time I see a sign up at one. Funny thing is I dont see many but I did see one at Gamewell Drug a few days back.

They did but it looks like the Jones crew just moved it down a little ways actually on the gamewell park property. Its right behind the guard rail on the side of 18. I wonder if the Town of gamewell approves of that? I guess someone could just call the DOT since its too close to the road by the rules.

There's one at Clark Furniture too. Call them and tell them, especially the town of Gamewell. Encourage one another to do this, let them know they will lose business if they support someone like our sheriff.

Jones Education:
West Caldwell High School
Bachelorís degree in Criminal Justice from Appalachian State
Basic Law Enforcement Training Western Piedmont Community College
Masterís degree in Public Administration from Appalachian State
Duke University N.C. Sheriff's Leadership School
Federal Bureau of Investigation Quantico, Virginia

Versus Wilson
South Caldwell High School
Lenoir Police
Granite Falls Police
Deputy Sheriff

Lance Wilson is a nice guy but so was Barney Fife. I would want him as a friend but not as Sheriff. He is just not qualified for the job. As far as all the talk about scandals and corruption surrounding Sheriff Jones I have seen no proof of this, just talk from people who do not like him. As far as I know itís just people who were arrested by Jones that are venting some personal vendetta. There are only 10 to 20 people in the county that read the nonsense on topix so it will not have an effect on the election.

I personally think we should hire a sheriff not elect one.

So this is what America has come to? This is why Americans died fighting for our rights, so you can condemn someone for voting for someone you dislike? Do you have any idea how WRONG you are? I detest Jones.So I will vote against him.That's how this WORKS! You people are so damn wrong.Maybe you should get some torches and pitchforks and burn down whatever business that doesn't support your candidate.I don't think Wilson would agree.

What has Alan Jones' education done for you, me, and the citizens of our county? The crime rate has nearly doubled on his watch, and that's using his statistics that have been submitted by his office. I have to believe you'll be hearing more about the scandals and corruption coming soon. Being educated doesn't make you qualified or the best person for a job.

My question. Did this class benefit us? How? Plus how much did it cost taxpayers and how long was our sheriff absent from work with pay in order to take this class. In reality does it help jones more by padding his resume or did it help the citizens any. Crime stats don't show it's helped us

I guess you can't read a newspaper can you. The embezzlement scandal and the swingers club plus the officer trading favors with female house aresstes were in the paper but Jones simply managed to refuse details by calling it a personel matter. You can put the blinders on all you want but its right in the open. Its came from officers who were actually working there but its always so easy set and say "ah he is just pissed off". I don't see how people can be so blind or just flat out lie.

His education is of no concern to me. It's a sheriff not a damn doctor and I would much rather have someone with less education that is a good moral leader with practical street experinace than some out of touch desk jockey politician, which is all Jones is. Most of Jones time in law enforcement has been behind a desk and yet he still is a terrible manager. The way I see it we have nothing to lose and everything to gain by electing Wilson. As far as you saying you have seen no proof well just hang on and keep those eyes peeled, I suppose when its there though you will have another excuse.

You are right, and who the public decides to do business with, is their own business too. If you support someone who has little or no morals, then that tells us about you and your business. Vote for who you want, but when it comes to supporting someone publicly, you are who you surround yourself with. Food for thought.

Yes! I read the papers often and I searched the archives for stories. Not one of the things you charge Allen Jones with is there. Not one story says Jones did anything wrong. This garbage is just a bunch of ex-employees making up stuff.

You're wasting your breath Truth, just like the true Jones supporter, refusing to see facts, they think that if they keep shoving Jones in your face hard enought they can keep their job or favors with Jones. Get all of the while you can, come May, there will be a new Sheriff and those backstabbers and fence-riders can follow Jones to his hot dog stand.

I am no jones supporter at all.. My point was people claim not to know of these things but many of jones issues have been in the local paper. How do people choose to ignore the facts of jones confuses me I guess.
