Failed us all is a broad statement. He hasn't failed us all. The criminal element is thriving under Layel's administration.

We the tax payers are the ones he has failed. We watch as our neighbors are robbed nightly and sometimes in broad daylight. Their belongings are not recovered, they do not receive restitution and justice is not served. We watch as more and more young people become addicted to drugs and turn to selling drugs or robbing us to support their habits. We watch as innocent lives are taken and others are changed forever. We watch as people say they have tried to get ahold of our sheriff with no results. We watch as people say they have called the police and no one showed up. We watch as the television news exposes his lies to us. We are watching when he doesn't show up to court or to major crime scenes within our county.

The main reason Scott Layel should not be re-elected to office is because we, the tax payers, deserve better. I would like to think that the people of Grainger County are smart enough to kick the garbage to the curb. If something is not working, you either fix it or get rid of it. He has had a long time to fix it, and has not. So, it is time we replace him.

I stand corrected, you are absolutely correct in your comment. I am so upset with him and what he has not done. He pulled the wool over my head and that upsets me dearly. I have been reading about that Hanna from Bean Station, he sounds so intelligent and he sounds like he will do us all some good. What a mess he will have if he gets elected. We need to pray.

I can't tell you why he won't be reelected, but I can tell you why he'll not get my vote. He has done a very poor job tackling the war on drugs. He makes a "big bust" ever once in awhile and makes sure he's on scene before the press takes pictures, and thats about it.
You spoke of young people, I'm one of em'. I'm a 22 year old OIF veteran, legally armed citizen, and registered voter. And I'm sick and tired of the damn dealers and junkies in my area. I've been to the police 3 times with names and the best times to catch them, and absolutely nothing has been done about it. That, my friend, is why I will not vote for Scott. Jim Hannan seems to have a solid plan for eliminating this problem, that's who will probably get my vote.

Hoot, you certainly nailed that. I really enjoyed your comment. I agree with you, I have been reading about Hannan and his plans, he has got it together. He got my vote to !!

I'm guessing he won't be re-elected due to lack of votes....now that's just a guess, lol.

As for Hannan, you make comments he is 'very intelligent' but can't type a coherent sentence. Due to the fact that criminal prosecution and law in general, is very dependent on accurate wording/statements, I would say he's in trouble in that department.

Casper will not be re-elected because he will not be able to beat Jim Hannan. He won't be able to beat him because Jim has the better plan for taking back our county, he has better experience in dealing with hard-core, entrenched criminal activity, and he will get tough on crime.
There will be no Holiday Inn in the Justice Center while Hannan is in office, but there will be integrity and honesty in the sheriff's office. There will also be openness in dealing with the public.
Some have stated that he can't seem to type a coherent sentence, and, I'll admit, he makes a lot of typos, but wait until you see his hands....they're HUGE! That might be why he can't seem to fit his fingers to the keyboard, but I am not certain. They can certainly fit a gun trigger, and he will take aim at crooks. That's why I support him. We need the criminal activity and the nepotism stopped in this county.
There have always been way too many back-hall deals and favors in the court house, and it needs to stop. Big Jim Hannan will stop that, I can tell you.
He's a great man, and I can't wait until he takes the sheriff's office and airs the place out. A new broom sweeps clean.
