I am new to this site, but I can see that a large number of people want Fox gone! I very much agree! The "good old boy click" needs to be done away with! Hawkins said on his radio add that if he is elected nobody will be fired, but maybe for the best interest of this county he will reconsider!

I don't know who won yet but I sure hope its Hawkins. Had a scary incident at my house on Monday and the Sherriffs dept. didn't bother to send a deputy to write down a report. I used to work for a Police Dept. (Dispatch) in another part of VA. They always sent an officer or deputy out, especially when you catch someone trying to steal a trailor redhanded on your property, and you are a young woman facing down two large men. They couldn't care less. Thanks for not caring Fox. From now on I will make sure I'm armed at all times.

I agree! Bobby I mean Sheriff Hawkins would never tolerate this. Watch and see! This county just elected a man that is honest and can't be bought. The other side can flap their lips all they want but just watch and see.

Winning an election on pitty votes and mis-informed statistics? I guess you have to do whatever it takes. Has it ever been a thought that over half the firings were job related? DUI related? Reckless driving related? Do your research. I do not know what will happen over the next 4 years but I do know we have lost a good, home grown man as our sheriff. Mr. Hawkins you have big shoes to fill. I hope you make wise decisions about who you make your head deputy and rethink the idea of hiring the 10 back. If you want to see your Department down and out, then hire them back.
A lot of the problems with the Sheriffs Dept lies in the hands of the board of supervisors. More money is needed for more positions to safely cover this big county, not a new Honest and Accountable sheriff like Mr. Hawkins lol. What a joke. In closing, people, if you see a deputy tell them they are appreciated. This vote has turned the department upside down.

Are YOU serious are you serious? Who said anything at any time about who was going to be his "head" deputy or hiring the 10 back? You listen to too many rumors and too much stirring up by James Snead on here. Perhaps the 10 do not want to come back; And what if they do? Since you don't have access to the personnel file I am sure you have no clue what their work record is like. Is that all you are concerned about? While there are significant issues with the BOS, don't blame them for funds mismanagement in the Sheriffs Department. Don't blame the BOS for half ass investigations; You appear to be a sore loser. Get over it. It is what it is and will be what it will be. All of the deputies are appreciated and where you get the idea that the department has been turned upside I am not sure. Of course the white shirts will tell you that, however I bet you have no clue how many of the current deputies voted for Hawkins, ha ha. People aren't stupid. They want honesty; they want integrity; and they want accountability. Move on. Concentrate your energies somewhere else.

Once again, I ask you to do your homework before you post a comment on here. I am not a fan of Snead either so I would not know of any rumor of his. He has enough to worry about right now other than spreading rumors. I do not need access to personnel folders its on the states court internet pages.
My friend this whole election was never about who was getting the job done. It was about the firing of 10 people,who may or may not needed to be fired. Sore loser? No. Mixed feelings about a guy who has no experience in leadership, supervising, and accounting for thers money? Yes
And I am guessing you went and watched the deputies votes.

Are you serious you are lying! I do have access to the personal files so I do know that you are lying. Many of us are happy that Danny did not win reelection. Unless you saw how he was behind closed doors then you do not know. You talk about filling big shoes, I never met anyone with more of a small man complex than Danny. We did the work and he took the credit. You should keep your uninformed comments to yourself. We have a new sheriff and we are very happy about that.

Alright people, stop now. The election is over. Bobby is Sheriff Elect. He will enter into that office on Jan 1, 2012 and we will show him the respect due his position. Our Sheriff's Office, yours and mine will remain the professional office it is and we will do what we can to make his transition as smooth as possible. To continue to trash Danny or Bobby is not helping anything and isn't going to change the outcome. So working together to keep this county great, should be the order of the day. Have a great day and God bless you all.

The 10 that were fired were fired for one reason and one reason only, Ex-Sheriff Danny Fox thought they supported Sheriff Hawkins - Wow that sounds good! If the 10 had been fired for neglect of duty, why wasn't Danny man enough to fire them when these "alleged" incidents happened? It was nothing but a vindictive action by a man who claims the Sheriff's Office is his family. I'm glad my family doesn't treat me like that. And then, there's James Snead who constantly stated that he did not feel sorry for the 10 or their families. He did not care if their children had food to eat or even Christmas and hoped they had learned to keep their mouths shut - Wow, really! I would say that is a really admirable thing for a person in administration to say. As a supervisor, he and Captain Baker should have kept their mouths shut. He also said that's what happens when you don't support your boss. Mr. Snead has told several he voted for Mr. Hawkins - so this in my opinion makes him a hypocrite. Everyone has continually bashed the Mecklenburg 10 for the last 4 years. You dish it out, but when the county makes the best decision it has made in years
(electing a new Sheriff) you suddenly have a problem with it. Like you told the Hawkins supporters 4 years ago - it's over, Fox lost, and the people have spoken. I hope Bobby will see thru the fake butt kissers in his Administration and make some changes. I don't know how he can keep the "white shirts" he has, especially after they discussed the firing of the 10, which in my opinion is a personnel matter. Confidentiality, trust, and integrity should be the main requirements for an Administration. Unfortunately, the Sheriff's Office has lacked that for the last several years.

Thank you to get your facts straight. You took the words out of my mouth. I know several of the 10 and they are good people that are from good families. I know two that are still police. For anyone to say that they are drunks with drinking and driving records is truly ignorant or just flat out lying. This election was about only one thing to me and that was justice. The 10 that were for Hawkins was not a bad thing. At least we know that 10 of them were thinking then what the majority of this county is thinking now. After all the election wasn't even close.

Part of the problem with the South Hill police is the mayor. Get rid of Horn and see good changes follow.

You are probably right.

I'm not "Dear Abby", it wasn't advice, just a suggestion. I hope you and your family have all God's blessings in the coming year.
