Not a big secret, a lot of us know. This person just has some things to stuff cleared with his employer first and then he will make it official. He is a great person and very qualified with very high morals and integrity. Just hang in there hopefully wont be much longer and I am sure someone will probably comment on it eventually with his name.

Yes I agree with (Not a secret) the person that will be running in the 2014 election is not only a current outstanding and well liked LEO but he actually has Morals, Ethics, Integrity, and has no skeleton's in the closet. The debates between the two Sheriff candidates should be very interesting.

May the best Candidate win / Remember to vote in the primary in May of 2014

The upcoming Sheriff candidate will clean up the corruption at the Sheriff's Office. No more sex scandals, swinging, adultery or embezzlement. This candidate is well respected in the county, involved in the ministry and a leader in the state's largest law enforcement agency. Caldwell County will finally get what it deserves.

Could not agree more with you last four posters. He is everything said here and more. He is the best candidate we have ever had in this county and we need him out there.

One thing not only Jones but many other small town politicians fail to remember, is you can only disappoint, disrespect and isolate so many people before you damage your voter base. People are wising up to those election year showcase appearances politicians so commonly use hoping to erase our memory of the 3 years they ignored our needs and disregarded our interest. Based on this election becoming such an issue 15 months out is a huge reflection of the publics opinion of what is really happening in this county. Dissatisfaction is in the air, calls for change ring out and people want trust restored.

Yeah dissatisfaction is putting it mildly. There are many higher ups in the county that are done with Jones. It will be a show at the Sheriffs Office for sure this time around. Last time with Brackett was nothing compared to this go around. This new candidate has all his ducks in a row and won't go away as easy. He is here to stay and get rid of the corruption that has plagued this county for too long. No more embezzlements swept under the rug, no more deputies knocking down doors and seizing people's guns for no reason, no more sex parties, no more intimidation from higher ups, no more good officers forced to resign because you don't put a sign in your yard. No More Jones!!!!!!!!

More and more Republicans are distancing themselves from Alan Jones. He has proven that he was not what he promised and the bad decisions he makes has caused most in the party to rethink their support. Ben Griffin will run and the main party will also run someone other than Jones. We are looking at a three way primary for the Republicans and I can guarantee that Jones will not get the party's endorsement this time.
Soon there will be another Sheriff and it won't be jones!
Maybe I'm missing something, but since when does the political party of the Sheriff make a difference? I fail to see how a national or state party platform (Republican, Democrat, whatever)influences a position that is focused on law enforcement. The sheriff doesn't make laws, doesn't finalize a budget, doesn't create public policy, so why does party matter? Sure, they (the sheriff) have a lot of power but it is not because of a political party. I try to learn the most I can about the man or woman running for local office and could care less about the party affiliation. The inter-party bickering and mudslinging between parties only serves to keep the best, most qualified candidates on the sidelines because they don't want to put if with the pre-election BS. My two cents...

Very good recent comments. Many respected and qualified candidates do not stand because of the politcal party realm. I am hearing about one in the county who will be running for sheriff and he will do great from what I understand but what about other elected offices. It is time we clean house of politicians and get some things done in our county so we can move forward.

The voters political affiliation is of major importance as the candidate opposing Jones will run as a republican as well. This means the election will basically be decided in the May 2014 republican primaries, which in republican primary elections only voters of the republican party or registered independents are allowed to vote. The sheriffs election will basically be decided at this point so it is critical anyone that opposes Jones as sheriff next term must be registered as a republican or independent in order for the vote to count. Crossover voting is allowed in the Nov general elections only.

Well said really. The momentum is really building and its important that we have a huge turnout in the primaries. Lance is a true law enforcement officer and not a politician and with being said he will be reaching to people from all walks of life and political affiliation. Republicans to Democrats is important that we all work together even if you have to change your affiliation just so you can vote, its rather easy and only takes a few minutes.

The damage was done by Jones himself 2 years ago that made some higher ups become concerned. "Whatever is done in the dark shall come into the light".

See what happened to the Sheriff in SC? Now when can we see the same happen here in Clownwell County?

Praise The Lord !!! People of this county, ALL PARTIES, are more than ready for the embarassment to go away. Long overdue. Even if Jones prevented a Nuclear attack it wouldn't help. People are fed up. Can we afford MORE lawsuits and being the laughing stock of this State? No!!!!!!! Tired is just that, TIRED. TIME TO MOVE ON JONES. Btw, visiting every church on Sunday won't help either. We'be worked months ago on getting the dirty laundry out there throughout this county. I will just sit back and keep feeding you the rope. If I were you, I'd spare my children the embarassment but it will never happen. I forget who I'm talking to, its all about you. I myself am ecstatic about having real law enforcement in this county again.

Voters of caldwell county, I am your sheriff and I have done a damn fine job, you better vote for me or I'll fire everyone at the department and run it myself, my employees support me and give me money, they put out my signs and most are to stupid or scared to do anything else cause they are scared of me. I am starting to make my rounds with the good Christian David Anderson, and if David supports me, God supports me, so don't vote against God or you will go to hell. So come on down to Johnny Wilson's farm for some pancakes and fellowship this Saturday......see you there, oh yeah, sign the attendance sheet so I know who to promote......hahaha.
