Wow, I love all the humor I have read in these blogs. I am sure some of them have come from certain people who are just not happy that I am running for sheriff because I stand for change. As far as the distasteful comments, they dont bother ive worked in this profession for 13 years where plenty of people have called me names. No matter what you do in life someone is not going to like it. What I find most humerous is that people who want to spread trash talk about each of the candidates hide behind a false name. This speaks a lot about the type of person they are. I want to thank all the people who are supporting me and I promise to do the best I can with the abilities God has given me. As far as the pole on this web site Im doing good even though it is not accurate.
Everyone have a great day.
Yours, Armando Fontes

I just want to say I know Armondo personally and he is a wonderful person. Those are the kind that need to be running our town. He has true values and is honest. How many of those do we have around here? Not very many. I like all the candidates and have nothing against them. I think Armondo is a person who will fight for what is right and not just what his wife, or cousins brother, or papaws neighbor tells him he has to do. That is the difference. Many are swayed by loved ones and end up biased and taking the wrong side. HE is a man that will go to the man upstairs for his decisions. Wow, there are actually some of those out there. Thanks Armondo. Win or lose, you are a true man of your word.

Sgt Fontes, You are right, this poll is not accurate. Everyone is reading and writing about all the postive things you are doing for our County, most don't realize your after duty volenteer work i.e. KCCB,RID. I'm not knocking the other candidates,We are not living in the past, if they were not good people I don't think they would be running.This County needs you most,alot of people ask you to be our Sheriff.Most of the distasteful comments are from the ones who are worried that they will have to crawl back under a rock if you are elected our new Sheriff

I will post my one and only comment here. I cant and wont say anything about any one on here but I will speak positive about Armondo. I am a worker at Edgemont School and I cannot tell you how good of a man he is. He really loves Cocke COunty and our kids. He is an honest man with a big heart with vision. He is a true patriot and loves his country too. I cannot speak enough about him/ I hope he rises above all the politics and wins this election. He is a true man and we all know that! That is the great thing is his ACTIONS speak louder than his words. ps- as far as illegals, he would go by what is right. I mean and think about it, if I was in mexico and living in poverty and could cross to make more money for my loved ones... you think i wouldnt.... We dont have any idea how someones feeling until we stepin their shoes... that is the problem with everyone including me... we are human.... we forget to venture out of our shoes and explore...that is where true understanding will come.

I totally agree with Log Home Guy, Grassy Fork Mom,Hurley, and ping pong . Fontes is a good man. He is not perfect, but neither are any of us. He really does care. He works hard and has put up with a lot at work. Especially from those officers who affraid he will be elected. Why? Because they will have to oget off their lazy butts and start working. You have my families support here in Del Rio Fontes and thanks for making a hugh impression in my childs life. For those of you who like to talk bad about Fontes, why dont you look at your own hiprocoracy, sins, adultry, foul mouths, and pathetic lives. You will give an account.
happy days

billyb... u must be on something. I mean u r crazy to think that. Armondo is the hardest worker I know. Heaven forbid we get a good, moral God fearing person in there. He is the best choice without a doubt.

This site must be a joke. So many people have voted up there for armondo and that counter does not show his points. I know this cause we did this from 3 different computers. What in the world.

Boy reading all of these blogs leads me to believe one thing. There sure are a lot of ignorant people on this web site. You morons want to throw out bashes against good officers and you make up lies about them. I know Armando and he is a great guy who actually cares. My husband and I are going to support him. Mabie he can straighten out that crooked Richard Caldwell and keep Joey Owings from hanging out at the bars whil he is supposto be working. These two officers are a total disgrace to the uniform and that is sad.

He does't need a comment of support from someone who writes like they are some kind of a gangbanger.He is not from your neck of the woods. maybe you'er only writing like this to try and hurt him.

BY GROWING UP WITH ALL THESE CANDIDATES ,BESIDES MR FONTES THEY ALL TAKE CARE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND TRUELY SHOW FAVORTISM . MR FONTES IS THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS MENTIONED WHAT GOES ON WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT . IN FACT IF EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW THE REAL TRUTH THEY COULD ALL DO SOME PRISON TIME . MY VOTE IS FOR MR FONTES WHO OBEY'S THE LAW NOT SHOWING FAVORTISM OR DISCRIMNATION . THE WAY OUR FOUR FATHERS PASS THE LAWS . IT IS SUSPOSED TO BE THE MOST FAIR SYSTEM WE HAVE .

i think the night sheriff should become the day and night sheriff. he has training in arson, has experience in bad situations, and is a expert in domestic violence.
