I am trying to decide who to vote for, for the dent county Sheriff, Who do you think would be the best candidate and why? I want someone who wil apply the law fairly to all and most of all uphold the Constitution, and our rights under it against all comers including the Feds if they were trying to violate our constitutional rights. So what do you think?

You want to know who to vote for; then choose Stallings. He has done a job well done the past 4 years. Bell use to be a cop before he decided he rather be a bondsmen and let criminals out of jail instead of protect the people. He also was named in the paper not long ago where he is actively working with a team of people to get doc Nash out of prison.(doc Nash is in prison for murder and was sentenced and found guilty by a jury of his peers) maybe its just me but I don't want a sheriff who likes to let people out of jail instead of in jail. Also IF bell was elected sheriff he would have 1 year to re complete the police academy from what I understand he forfeited his rights to be law enforcement when he became a bail bondsman! So technically he isn't even a law enforcement official

I've known Bell for many years. He always seems to be an upstanding man. Someone I can trust to make good and fair decisions. He has my vote.

Noone in their right mind would vote for Stallinger , he is the only sherrif we have ever had that has had a female prisoner get pregnate by a deputy ,while being locked up , he is the only one we ever had that has employed a KILLER to protect us ( Rice ), he is the only one to employ deputies that think they're above the law and can cruise town on a Ranger , drink and drive and have it all covered up . why would you vote for a loser like that ? I don't think he is the best choice . it's your vote , if you cast it for Stallinger it's a waisted vote !

She was not in jail when she got pregnant by Rice, they had an on and off affair, yes it was wrong, however Stallings fired him a long time ago and so he didn't have a killer "protecting " us. He was employed at prison Licking when that happened!! And as far as the deputy's go cant control what people do on their time off they were caught in the city so it would be the city officers job to do something about it and all stallings can do is fire them which is what happened!

Bell is just too stupid to do the job. He has a difficult time reading and writing.

Reminds me of Bob Wofford.

Looks like Bell is on here campaigning for himself . Just look @ the spelling and grammar of the self serving post above. Told you he is too stupid and poorly educated to run that office.

Doc Nash

He has had crimes committed in this area that he has solved and when Rice was shooting he was immediately on the job to get it taken care of. when there was a couple killed in rural Dent county, he immediately got the killer. He is a good sherriff.

Get the stories straight...the deputies solve the crimes and Rice was already known to be the shooter. Where did the sheriff come in as the person doing all the work?

You can't always tell how bright someone is by looking at them,take a look at their grades they have made.Why do you think he isn't "bright." I seen alot of cases he put together win in court.
Are u kidding

So you are saying he just looks stupid! Funny but wrong. He is just looking for a free ride like Bob Wofford and Clifford Jawin got.

The sherrif cant control what his deputys do on their own time,(days off). They shouldn't have been doing what they did in the first place but they did and lost their jobs for it too!! As far as being a good sherrif I believe he has done more in the last 4 yrs in office than the last sherrif did! If your a criminal then you need to be locked up, the law is the law any way you look at it. Put that in your pipe and smoke.
