Cary Cooper has announced that he intends to run against our incumbent Sheriff, Tim Burkhalter. I don't believe that Cooper can win, or should win. Burkhalter has done an outstanding job of keeping the Sheriff's Office at or below budget, serving the Courts, running the jail and being totally active in the community.

Sheriff Tim Burkhalter is an outstanding public servant and deserves to remain our Sheriff

Oh how I love election time! People like jogg come out of the wood work because they probably were fired from the Sheriff's Office for being incompetant and still not got over it! Let the games begin!

jogg,

What has he "covered up"? You have an alias here, name it. Come on now, don't be bashful. A warrant is issued, he serves it. Papers need serving, he serves them. He makes sure the Courthouse stays secure. He does many many things for the kids and at-risk youth of this County. If the voters decide to consolidate, he will accept that and do that too. What is your problem with the Sheriff of Floyd County?

Source,

It appears you are correct Sir. Sheriff Tim Burkhalter and his Chief Deputy Tom Caldwell go out of their way on a daily basis to make sure that things run right, and smoothly. Sheriff Burkhalter has my vote.

Yes Burkhalter does all those things but the last time I checked that was his job. So kudos for him doing his job. There is no more political office in Floyd County than the sheriffs dept. There is one plus to the sheriffs department in Floyd County. if a person is a police officer in another department, say Floyd County police dept or Rome city police and you do something that results in your termination, the sheriffs dept will hire you. Happens all the time. Could all these positive posts be his underlings hoping for a promotion? Careful, that brown may not come off

Agreed, at least make your post understandable no matter what your stance is.

well Jogg,

you made a rather brash statement and now you want to run for cover. Not surprising.

Name something they have covered up? Just one thing? Not two, not three...just one. And be specific. Otherwise, just be happy you are out on bond.

I know the Sheriff, and I know his Chief Deputy. I don't work there, or want to work there. They are good people doing a good job and under a budget that has already been cut. I challenge anyone to go in there and get a bigger bang for the buck. Cooper is a good guy and a pretty fair policeman. He's Sgt material and that's what he is. He has nothing to run on but consolidation and that's not even an issue.

Maybe four or so years down the road he can run and maybe win. Not this time though. Tim Burkhalter has too many friends who know he does a good job.

PS to Cary. Run against Hulsey. You can whip him
