Too bad you don't know anything about Lancaster. Sheriff Tate was doing an awesome job.

Might follow the link below. A lot of reading, but I pasted some of the wording below the link. Remember, the Sheriff is basically a CEO and in charge of a lot of our tax dollars. I have more I can share, but first, what are your complaints about Tate?

http://m.topix.com/forum/county/bartow-ga/T5I...

The Check register for the K-9 Unit had several discrepancies that contradicted the register Summary. Exhibits are hereto attached.
C. Former Bartow Officer Lancaster was able to write out checks off the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office paid to the order of Lt. Billy Lancaster. Exhibits attached.

I think Kiowa county made a big mistake by not re-electing Russ!

Agreed. Not sure what was said by the opponent to persuade voters the other way. Guess they forgot how many years of service Russ has already given us already. Lancaster, being new to the area, could say anything he wants. No one actually knows his background except for what he told them.

He was taking care of business...taking care of the employees. Taking drugs off the street. Moving forward...working on a new location for a jail...etc. Do I need to keep going? Should I make a list? Is there something you wanted to see happen? What exactly are your expectations? You say "change is good." Guessing you voted for Obama too. That's working out! His original campaign was based one "change" and we can see where that had taken us so far!

Sorry that seems more like an attack. I don't care who you voted for president. Just can't believe Obama campaigns and promises the people "change" as if any change is good change. I got the same impression from Lancaster. He wants to bring change, but never heard anything he wanted to change. Besides, hard to want things to change that seem to be in good working order.

Beg to differ with you! I voted for the man 4 years ago and like many others never saw him again in our town/community until it was time to campaign again 4 years later.Then I had to look twice to know who the man was. We still have drugs on the streets.How was he taking care of business? Explain?

You are always going to have drugs on the streets. However, Russ, along with other agencies made several drug busts within the county including the Snyder police chief. Also might see the following link.

http://m.newsok.com/tip-leads-to-kiowa-county...

Not sure what town you are from, but sounds like Snyder. A lot of complainers there. Snyder even has its own local law enforcement. Seems you wouldn't need the Sheriff's department as your main law enforcement agency, but guess they aren't taking care of Snyder like they should.

The Sheriff's dept only had one deputy when he won 4 years ago and we have 4 times that now.

"Taking care of business" means the things mentioned above. Including sufficiently managing the budget. Purchasing equipment for the deputies...as well as employing more deputies. Purchasing vehicles for them, maintaining a jail, working on a new jail...etc. Maybe you didn't see him because you weren't at the same place he was when he was in the area? Maybe you have a job and he didn't stop in you place of work? Maybe he was working on other things at the time. Hard to be everywhere at once. Hard to be out in the public view and improve what he had when he took office 4 yrs ago.

It seems I know more about this topic than you at this point. Maybe you shouldn't hinge your opinion on actually seeing the man. Did you ever need the Sheriff's department and they were not there for you? Do you have some sort of proof they were not doing there jobs? Did you ever see a Sheriff's deputy in your area? That's who you should have seen.

I think I have explained enough. I could keep going, but I have stated enough truths and you have provided nothing except "I never saw him again until it was time to campaign." As if you we're constantly in need of help and no one was there to help you. I am yet to understand your expectations!!! Seems as though you may be a little hard to please.

Seems you have nothing valuable to add to this conversation. I ask you about your complaints several days ago with no reply. You appear to have nothing concrete against the current sheriff. What about the link I provided you about Lancaster? No response there? Seems like an extremely trustworthy guy. Sure hope I don't have to depend on him for help!

Judging by your response,it must be Tate himself! Or at least someone who sure likes to toot his horn! Cked out the marijuana link. Good article.And that was alot of drugs taken off of the market. Sore arms and all but no arrests? 1750 plants from the prior year and it was allowed to grow another 7700 plants the following year? Why? Why were there no arrests made either year? No excuse!
Why is there never any crimes solved? Arrests made? And convictions with people going to jail? How many years since a jury trial? Hard to please? Give me a break! Is it too much to ask of your Sheriff to investigate crimes, solve them and to return your stolen items? Why was there only 1 deputy when he took office?
The budget? May be wrong, but seems like I remember reading in the paper in one of the postings of the commissioners meetings that Mr. tate got mad over some furniture and a stainless steel toliet (which cost a lot of $$$) because he was out of $$$ and they would not fund him anymore? Did he over spend on his projects of more deputies, deputies supplies, vehicles, maintaining a jail and working on a new jail?
No arrests, crimes unsolved, never seeing the guy, stolen items never recovered, Again,tell me something that the man did all by himself...Just saying.......

It you had read the articles you would have known it was on BIA Land, whole knew set of laws for that one! Yes, the federal laws take over at that point! Of course you wouldn't know anything about that!
Really, no crimes solved you have no idea what your talking about! Arrest made and convictions there were plenty!! No jury trials, you don't know how the system works. Attorneys and DA's always try to get a plea deal because of the cost to the system.
Again you don't know the state mandates! What kind of toliet you put in the jail is mandated by the state and it cost lots of money!
Going from 1 deputy to 4 deputies was an increase of three! New vehicles, I think they purchased two or three of those too.
Maintaining all county buildings is the commissioners job! But I forget, you don't even know that!
You people have alot to learn!! And learn it you will!

Read the article from Georgia "BIG WHOOP" about him having a kennel in his yard and as for writing himself checks I find that to be BS. I have one question for you? Have you taken the time to even meet Lancaster or are you already bashing him without knowing him?
