Hampton Clerk

Newport News, VA

#1 May 26, 2012
If Bell is elected then that office will not have any experienced lawyers. Check out how many have left in the last few months. He is a mean individual; it is his way or no way. Clerks, lawyers and most judges do not like him. Hampton can do better, a lot than Mr. Bell

Bell is just one of Hampton's "good ole' boys" Look who is endorsing him.
Truth not a concern

Bell is only concerned with getting a conviction and heck with the truth. He is a fraud trying to present himself as a law and order prosecutor but he is a joke who should consider going back to Virginia Beach. Check out why he worked in Hampton for 12 years while living in Virginia Beach and why 1/3 of the attorneys in that office have left since he was put in charge. Everyone should give a lot of thouht to supporting him.

Read the article in the Daily Press about the number of attorneys who have left that office. As a former prosecutor I would leave that office before I would work for him. Linda Curtis supports him only because she believes he can get Rudy Langford to support her for a judgeship. Molly Ward does what she is told for political gain and this is a good example of her doing what is best for her and not the City of Hampton.

I rest my case.

Molly Ward is a political hack. She is out for Molly Ward and Molly Ward only. The damage she has done to Hampton is incalculable. Since only 17% of the eligible voters voted in the last City Council election, the only logical conclusion is that the people in Hampton want a venal government. If that is what they want, that is what they are going to get.
Bad Choice Anton Bell

Newport News, VA

Electing Anton Bell will be a big mistake for everyone involved. He is hardheaded and will not concede that he is ever wrong and if you disagree with him you are wrong period. It is his way or no way. Every single case that he has lost, he blames the police department for during a bad investigation. He will not admit or acknowledge that he is far from being the smartest person around.Some of the people who have left in the last few months have said privately that he is dangerous and should not be in charge. Wise up and listen to the people who have worked with him

Bell is a political pawn for Linda Curtis who wants to come back as a judge. 50% of the attorneys who were in that office a month ago have left that office. That in itself should be a wake up call for the voters. Even the people in that office cannot tolerate Bell. Do your research prior to voting and you will conclude that Bell is not suited to be in charge of that office; he is a fraud.

The last comment was unnecessary even if it were true; stick to the facts. Mr. Bell should not be elected as he will be nothing but a pawn for the mayor and her friends in city hall. while I just moved to Newport News I lived in hampton for years. we are sick of the mayor and her good old boy network. and bell will be one of them.

And we are also sick of the phrase "good ol boy network". I guess black people don't have inside networks either.... Oh wait there is a HUGE one in Hampton, it's called the veterans hospital.

There are others but it's unfair to say there is a black network in Hampton or the surrounding areas. That would be construed as "racial" whereas "the good ol boy network" is ok.

Racism is old no matter what color is causing it.

It's here: "Racism is old no matter what color is causing it."

The poster insinuated that white people use the "good ol boy network" to get what they want. But no one really bothers to state that the term itself is derogatory towards the white race.

On the other hand if a white person used that term in regards to black people, it suddenly becomes racism.

If bell is using a network then so be it, there is no need to turn the conversation into a race issue.

It's 2012 and I among others are sick of the race card.

That was my point and it still applies to this thread and original story, along with the poster.

Bell is a jackass no matter the color.

I don't see it as a racial issue but you're trying to make it one. A lot of the "good ole' boys", and "girls", that are supporting Bell are white. Bell's skin color isn't part of the equation. The very fact that Hampton's Cabal is supporting him makes him suspect, however.

I would also remind you that his opposition Dee Vantree-Keller is also black.

HPD is being kind when they say he is "biased." He is racist and we all have to watch it every day.

What a major mistake this year has been. Please people, do not vote for Anton Bell. Do not continue this mistake. He is hard headed and never admits to a mistake even when the facts are obvious. He is overly concerned with appearnces to the point of simply not doing his job.

Do not vote for Anton Bell.

I know a lot of people who work (or used to work) for Hampton, and I am always amazed at the unity of thought by everyone who has experienced Anton Bell's tyranny. Aside from a few puppets of his own, even people who have been loyal employees for years are completely fed up with his games--and it has been less than a year. It is clear that Anton is a racist who is unwilling to ever admit he has ever made a mistake, even if he has to run down innocent people in order to do it.

Once, I was passing by the court house and saw his campaign manager going in to the office--through the back door! Isn't that illegal? Anton Bell is a terrible virus and a blight on the city. He needs to be elected out at the first opportunity!

Soooo glad I'm not in that office any more. Anton likes to play games with people and I'm just glad don't have to take it any more.

And so are his puppets that he has put in place.
He and his minions have no concept of reality and they treat people like garbage. Bell is only concerned about the way things look, so he tries to put on this beautiful facade and he loves to hide behind his false Christianity. He needs to go back to the Bible to find out how to treat people. Little doe he know that the rest of the Hampton Administration think he is the biggest idiot in the the city--to include the City Manager and Mayor. No one on the Hampton city staff has ANYTHING positive to say about Anton Bell and the brainless, cruel and idiotic (and RACIST) people who work with him. He is a blight of cancer and an ugly virus unleashed on the city!
