I would base my vote on results. Seems Mr. Vaughan has the best results lately. I know the other folks mentioned are doing their jobs well, But this guy stands out the most. Thanks

In reality, this may be true, but I think it would have to be Ronnie Lawson. He has the most experience in doing the job...But again, Roger Christian is not doing that bad of a job is he?

HOw true this is Possum. looks like you might be onto something here.....I agree he does have the knowledge, and has been in the office for a long time........But you know what, more than likely it will be someone who runs, that nobody knows that will win the voters of this county......WE shall see we still have a year to go

Possum, I too think your on to something. David would be a good canidate also. From what I know and have dealt with him he is knowledgable, helpful and does a great job, and have known him for years.
I also feel Ronnie would have and be doing a much better job than our present sheriff. I feel previous trooper in past that have been sheriff have not done near as good of job as a more local and qualified officer would have that moreso knows the local area, people, and office better. 1 more year and we will see.

Kevin Johnson is the only one on the poll I do not recall knowing, so therefore, I can not say he would or wouldn't make a good Sheriff. As for the other's, I feel any of them would do a fine job.

I'm surprised David Rogers wasn't on the poll. He would also make a fine sheriff.

I have nothing against Roger Christian-I think he is doing the best he knows how,and he is honest.But,I don't think he is a "people person" (i'm not either),and whether we will admit it or not,small town politics is mostly a popularity contest.David Rogers is charasmatic,qualified,and honest.It will be interesting in 2010.I hope I'm still around :)

They'd solve that fire problem at the jail if they'd be brave and bend some of the inmates over and use a flashlight, lol Or maybe check their pockets when they come in.

If Kevin Johnson get elected sheriff I'm moving to Haiti because it will be safer. No offense to Kevin. He's a neighbor and fine fellow, and his heart is in the right place. But, I don't think playing cop on the weekends with a constable badge qualifies you to be the chief law enforcement officer for the county. Ronnie or Roger will do just fine. Stacy is a good consolation prize, even though he's got a snowball's chance in you-know-where.

This area needs new blood. Someone who does not know or give a crap about who is related to who. There is far to much corruption in this area. If you do the crime you should do the time no matter who you are. If you are in law enforcement it is your job to uphold the law not pick and choose who the law applies to. So far what I have seen of law enforcement and citizens in this area they could be the poster children for the 7 deadly sins. I am sure there are some good law enforcement officers out there. Their job is made much more difficult to do the right thing by those who continue to abuse their position in law enforcement.

We need Warren Rimer back in this town. Just a few years ago he kept this town clean anyone here can speak for that.

I agree with you. I really had a lot of respect for him when I worked at the jail back in the early 90's under Sheriff Wayne Clevenger. Rimer was a good, honest, fair man, everyone's friend.

I think it would be great to have him back in office. Like you said he knows everyone. I think it would be good to get somebody back in office that can get results.

And if the man commited a crime, why should the sheriff try and get him out of it?? I am sure Ronnie himself wasn't trying to get the charges dropped. I think that if you do the crime, you do the time......In a position such as an elected official, he probably couldnt even help his own brother get off the charge.
I saw Warren saturday, he is doing pretty good these days I think.
But the election is still a year and a half away, so we might as well be happy with what we have for a little longer....Who knows what will happen in the upcoming year. I hope that it is a better one than this one has been!!
AS for the Sheriff's race in 2010, you have mentioned some very good people in the contention, but we will have to wait and see who qualifies and who dont.

Stacy Vaughan would be a great canidate for sheriff. he is a very close friend of mine and has great leadership. He would also keep roger christian on the force as a head cook in the jail.
