Sheriff Parker is experienced and passionate. He has served the community well and increased the number of Deputies. His re-election is in the best interest of the citizens as he will continue to improve upon the department and it's service.

Sheriff Parker is the only logical choice. It is my understanding he has been a officer for most of his adult life. I have asked several people about the qualifications of his opponent and come up with nothing more than he was a jailor at one point and time. I believe it takes more than a jailor to keep me and my children safe.

Sheriff Parker refused to run a background check on my husband and me for our adoption, which was required. We had to ask the sheriff of Mt. Vernon to do this for us, and we have been residents of Washington County since 1997.

If I was Sheriff I would not have ran that background check either

Harry Berger knew EXACTLY what he was getting into during the last election, and Harry Berger was 'robbed' of last time was the humiliation of getting defeated. I wonder if Harry ever really sat down and pondered why the last election went the way it did....was it because maybe some of the 'democrats' did not want someone as un-qualifed as Harry on the ticket? Let's get a reality check here...

I am voting for Charlie Parker. Why?? Because I feel safer at night knowing that we have someone in charge of our police force that KNOWS what he is doing. Also, I want to have peace of mind knowing the if something happended to me or my family - there is going to be someone there that has many, many years of experience in the law enforcement field to take care of me. Thank you Charlie for running again, and keeping Washington County safe.

I assure you this is coming from a person with personal knowledge of the Sheriff's Department's daily operations......If anybody in this county truly believes that Berger will make a better Sheriff, then they have lost their mind. Sheriff Parker is available 24/7 to his deputies, and he will provide them with the right answer everytime. Berger is not even a State certified police officer. You can't run for State's Attorney if you are not a Lawyer, why can you run for Sheriff if you are not a certified cop. Now people of the Washington County Community, educate yourselves before you make an opinion. I don't mean listen to hearsay then educate yourself, I mean truly educate yourself, as in walk in to the Sheriff's Dept. and talk to Sheriff Parker or a deputy. The Deputy that is unhappy with Sheriff Parker, is only unhappy because he is not allowed to sit on his butt, wasting tax payer's money with a dog that is unused, and go around treating citizens of this county like crap (we all know what deputy is being refered to here). Now to give you all a little bit of knowledge before you vote, Parker will be able to answer deputies questions in their time of uncertainty, Berger will be asking the deputies how to do the job. When I tell you this is coming from personal knowledge that is because it is a Washington County Deputy that is typing this now. I hope that the citizens of our county can come together for the greater good of their families and friend in the county.

Very well said!! I hope that voters will read this and hope that they will not buy into the lies that the 'Berger Crew' is spreading!

The only reason that I could think of for a person not to vote for Parker is someone who is upset with the sheriffs department because they have violated the law. Then they have a reason to vote for Berger - because they will be able to violate the law all they want because they know that they will be able to get away with it!

voting for experience, integerity, and common sense. Charlie is one of the last honest people left in politics, and we should not waste this chance to do what is right for us, our county, and our children's safety!!

Charlie is a womanizer. plus he spends 90% of his time playing footsies in the states attorneys office with his girlfriend. Charlie is anti union and harasses his dispatchers so much they are to affraid to be the union steward for fear they will lose their jobs. He hires unexperienced women to dispatch because he thinks he will get lucky with them. they end up costing the county more money to go to school for dispatching and then they dont work out. call and ask how many dispatchers he has went threw in the last 4 years.

the person that worte the above is probebly the sheriff's girlfriend. or the deputy can say his name... Sheriff Parker is not readily available 24/7 he rarely answers his phone as he is always at his girlfriends. Sheriff Parker also allows his deputies, jail officers and dispatchers sleep on the day and the night shift back in dispatch. I have witnessed this happen as I worked there and took pictures of this when it happened. even nashville officers were caught sleeping in dispatch. I could even give names. Sheriff parker is lazy and only wants to be in the newspaper when there is a story or his pictues to be posted for publicity. Sheriff parker has been questioned on the money he brings in for federal inmates not adding up as well as the well known fact that he screwed up the investigation with the pharmacy robery.

you obviously are not well informed. A jailer is not a police officer. not even close.

During the last election, Harry was only a write in and he still almost won. Sheriff parker and the old sheriff foster worked out a scam to make sure they were the only two on the ballets and then foster dropped out. Let this one be fair.
And FYI, jail officers are certified and well knowing of the law. sometimes more so then the Nashville police. Nashville police have brought in people to the jail without searching them first and some of them had weapons on them... causing danger to the dispatchers and jail officers. Most all of the Sheriff's deputies were not certified when they were hired. Sheriff Parker hired them first and then sent them to school on the tax payers dime.
