I have seen many people campaign over the years but there are two individuals that really stand out and it looks like they both are running against someone! I canít wait to see them out this year.

Pat Grindstaff is Jerry Grindstaff's X. She is a very good person and stood by Jerry during his disgruntled life style for many years.She is a hard worker and well thought of in our Co. Course I really can't vision anyone replacing Carolyn H.>has a heart of gold and people love her.

Anyone would be better than Carolyn. She abuses her power too much! I personally am glad to see someone run against her!

Carolyn is very kind to people who are in trouble and the families of those people. Kindness carries bunches of weight in that particular office. Everyone in those positions are accused of "abusing power" ya just can't win when people as you seem to be-critical of power. I am sure if you were in that office you'd be accused as well.

If she likes you she has been known not to send your information into the state to suspend or revoke your license. Would take certain names off the court report so they wouldn't been seen in the paper. Cusses her workers. In the public eye she is great. Behind the scenes she is different.

I will tell you one thing, I have seen Carolyn be kind and friendly to EVERYONE weather she likes them or not, she treated the welfare people in court just as good as she did the people working in the courthouse. She is a kind and sweet and big hearted person. I truely think she cares about the way peoples lives are. If Jesus ran against her, she would still win!!! So bring it on to whomever, my vote, my opinion, my choice.... Carolyn!!!! And I have NEVER heard her cuss her employees nor have I ever heard her say a cross word about them, or anyone else for that matter. Bliss and Carolyn are good people, they have a job to do reguardless, and that is that!!!

If I were in that office I would treat everyone the same. Not throw things out of court just because people do special favors for me. She is nice to me also however I know several people who have gotten their cases thrown out because she liked them or they did something for her and then I have also known people who have pissed her off personally and then she has used it against them in the courtroom. So do not tell me that I am being critical of her because I have seen it first hand! I believe in fairness and that is what is wrong with all of politics. You should not let your personal life sway your professional decisions.

If you dont piss her off personally then you might get by with murder and if you do piss her off then you might get accused of murder. She uses her personal vendettas to get back at people in the courtroom. I just think officials should be fair especially in this day and time when everything political is so corrupt.

Could possibly be that the people that Carolyn might not have too much patience with are the people that talk about her and her family after needing favors from her. I do not care who is in office-they have feelings too and if you are in a position to make such people pay, it would be difficult not to use that power,whether it is you or me or whoever, we might want to get even in a round about way.There is always a way for people to get their point across isn't there.

These are extraordinarily serious accusations. If they're true and are brought to the agencies responsible for court clerks' conduct, would she not be removed from office, prosecuted and jailed?

Over and above the official penalties for such misconduct, there's an election coming up. If these accusations are true, we voters are entitled to know about them. Can you back them up with names, dates, docket numbers, etc.?

By the way, I don't think the court clerk has the ability to throw cases out. Only judges can do that.

I believe absolutely nothing the "truth hurts" crew are posting in regards to Carolyn. Seems like nonsense from a disgruntled former worker or the family of some criminal that couldn't get away with their crimes.

As far as Pat running against Carolyn? Dare I say, LOL? The vote count will probably be somewhere in the 10-1 range. Complete massacre.

Even though Pat Grindstaff doesn't stand much of a chance, it is always good to have at least one competitor in an election. I think that helps keep everyone on their toes.
