If you guys want a good,honest,laid back,unmeddlesome Sheriff who will put drug dealers and criminals in prison in Mitchell County then you should vote for Shane Vance. Vance was brought up under Ken Fox's guidance and has been molded by Fox to be the next Sheriff. Vance will inheret the current Sheriff's Office and will act almost identical to Sheriff Fox.Vance will be a thorn in the side for drug dealers and criminals , but it will be done in a reasonable fashion and with integrity . Shane Vance treats the rich the same as the poor,and everyone in between.Vance will keep most all Officer's, including Donald Street ,employed . Vance is the only logical choice in my eyes .

Donald cant even write a search warrant, has never worked drugs, picked up a check case here and there. The guys that work with him can't stand him. Did you ever think that maybe good officers left Mitchell because of him? Look how many has came and went to be successful in other places. Donald is a nice guy but he is no Sheriff, If your own Deputies do not respect him now, what makes him think they will respect him as Sheriff? 28 years of doing the same thing every day.. Man that is experience. Ranking Officials do nothing but feel comfortable to do nothing. They are burnt out and have no fire left. Go ahead and vote for him if you want to see the same ol thing. Give me someone who wants to change the good ol boy ways and ruffle the right feathers. Get caught up with the times.

Would you agree that America is consistently making worse decisions and choices for public officials recently ? Did we not just vote a man into the President's Office that may not even be an American Citizen ? This world is changing rapidly for the worst and believe it or not , a Sheriff is one of the most powerful people in our system .I would like to ask all voters to do some research before you make up your mind who you are going to vote for on Election Day . The information you need is mostly public record and can be found at The Clerk of Court's Office or online at N.C Court System .If you choose online just go to home page,then Court Calendars ,then to Officer Court Appearance Query , and search each candidate in the county and agency ( Sheriff , Police , etc) they are currently working. Look and see what type and how many criminal cases the candidate's have in court. The online system will only give you current court dates for Officers so I would also say go to the Clerk's Office and look for cases in years and months past. Check the candidate's conviction rate. Also ask your local D.A or Judges(these are people you elected also) not their opinion, but rather which candidate's bring good,legitimate cases to court ,or how often do you see the candidate ? Look in the Clerk's records and find out if the candidate has written a search warrant .We all will have to accept the fact that we are living in a world where things have changed from simple to complicated , internet crimes are a big problem . Prescription pills are a big problem . Is the candidate smart enough to write a search warrant for someone's medical records or their computer ? That's what you gotta do these days folks . It's not Andy Griffith days anymore ( I wish it were ).Also check the Federal Court System and see if the candidate has ever been capable of getting a Federal case adopted ( we all have seen that this is the best way to get a career criminal real prison time ).This world is bad . I know a place 30 minutes from here in Tennessee that recently closed a public park because children were stepping on needles ! No joke people . Our local Sheriff is our best defense against the criminal activity that is either already here or coming soon . I know all of the candidates are really good people and are "Good Ole Boys" , but we need the man who can do the job and we might have to hurt some of the candidate's feelings on election day . We gotta get the man that knows how to do the job the best. I think all of the candidates will wave at you and be nice to you , but we gotta look deeper than that.I challenge each of you to please do some research and don't just vote for a recognizable name or because they asked you to vote for them .We need this information as voters and we as good citizens need to take control back out of the hands of crooked politicians .

Deputies that need to go? Is Donald not the Chief Deputy, Can he not fire them if they are not doing anything? My point exactly, He cant manage them now so why would it be different later? The man has no clue about what is going on. Why is it that the Sheriff will not support his Chief Deputy for Sheriff? I know, because Ken is a good man and he knows Donald is no Sheriff. Donald is a road deputy at best. Jailer to road to Chief Deputy just because of seniority not job performance.I know only a few people read this but come on use common sense. He has been in control of the department already, time for a change.

For those who don't know, Mitchell Co. is a little behind in the times, and that's what makes it special. And Donald Street is concerned with the people in the county. Unbeknownst to most, a little more than 2 yrs ago, he was able to accomplish something that "professional detectives" had failed at, all to help a Bakersville family. He is very capable not only in being a professional, but serving the good of the people in the co.
