He can run all day long and he is finished. The people of Caldwell are done with him. He has run the CCSD into the ground. No one has any respect for the department. He has turned CCSD into a joke. What a waste of money. You couldn't even pay me to vote for him. Hope you have a back up plan Alan. I am voting for whoever runs against him. We need to take our county back.

WASHINGTON — Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun club suddenly isn’t such a hot ticket.

His gun-control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns has lost more than 50 of its original mayoral members in the last few months, as disenchanted mayors quit the coalition or leave office.

Bloomberg, who pumped millions of dollars of his personal fortune into the group to make it one of the loudest voices in the gun-control debate, now is struggling to replace ex-members.

“The original focus, I thought, was going to be ... on better enforcement of our existing laws, and if anything, we have talked about not getting involved with things like banning assault weapons and banning magazine clips,” former member Rockford (Ill.) Mayor Lawrence Morrissey told BuzzFeed, which first reported the dwindling membership.

I doubt he has promised anyone jobs but I am sure he has people in mind he would like to bring or bring back. With Lance you will have to earn your keep and prove you are the right person for the job based, promotions would be based on performance and merit not how good friends you are with him. I think he knows its not fiscally responsible to clean house and there are still some good ones there but I am sure some will have to go and some very much need to go.

I hope that's the way he does it but I bet he's got some of his own click in mind . I do think he'll keep good ones that's there now but I think he'll put his guys in the bigger jobs. That's how politics work,

Well you are right that's how it usually works but I just dont see it happening here at least not on a big scale for a few reasons. The big one is that's what got CCSO in the shape its in now and Lance is well aware of that. Lance is a very different sort of individual and a politician he is not at least not in the traditional sense we see politicians today, crooked, double talking, self serving and so on. The other reason is he has been at the SHP for several years now and its doubtful many Patrolmen would give up the pay and benefits they worked so hard to get just to follow him to CCSO.

I am sure he is looking over people he could recruit to fill the positions but I would bet anything he will not just go off of friendship when it comes to hiring and promoting. Who ever he picks may be friends but they will be the right person for the job first and foremost. I think he wants to surround himself with a mix of experience and bright young people, outside the box thinking with fresh new ideas along with proven old school standards, just basically a mix of ideas and viewpoints to help best serve the people of the county from all walks of life.

His slogan is a New Beginning so it wouldn't do well for him to hire the same ole same ole that we've seen become complacent and just there for a paycheck.

Well you all can say whatever you want but last Saturday evening right before dark I like a fool ran out of gas at the intersection of SW blvd and Connely Springs road. A deputy pulled in behind me and I just knew he was going to tell me to get my truck out of the road. Instead he told me that he had called LPD to block the intersection and that he was going to push me to the gas house. I thought to myself I guess he wants to use that big brush bumper but when the LPD got there they both pushed my truck by hand to the station. There are some good officers left I don't care what any of you say.

I think several other people pointed out that many out there are still good officers but I am willing to bet almost any amount of money they will not be voting for their boss either. I caution you on just going off this one isolated incident as being a reflection of the administration. It was a common theme in the last election for Jones to demand of anyone driving a marked vehicle to stop and render assistance to stranded motorists during the year leading up to the election, its a PR stunt among others he uses. Not to say that officer wouldn't had stopped anyways but I do know for a fact he mandated that during meetings and clearly pointed out why he wanted officers to assist motorists when they wouldn't otherwise. Why shouldn't this be done all the time if they really care?

Some things to watch for in the coming year is seeing deputies assisting stranded motorists even in the city, officers being reluctant in giving tickets, not stopping anyone with a Jones for Sheriff sticker on their car, officers going out of their way to be polite and helpful when they would normally be short and just tell you to get a warrant, officers showing favoritism to people with Jones signs in their yard yet ignoring those with the oppositions signs in their yard, seeing a marked increase in patrols especially in Republican held areas of the county, Jones actually in his office when you call or go out there.

I am pretty sure by now Lance Wilson knows who the good officers are and he surely knows who has to put up a good front to keep their jobs. I would be sure that several of those officers have made contact with him to let him know their intentions. Jones tries to threaten them on a daily basis but it only serves to strengthen their resolve to see him go.

Publicity stunt my A double S!!!
The other officer pushing was a Lenoir Policeman and he don't work for Jones or the County. Geeze get your head out your of your ass and take a breath of fresh air every now and then. Everything in this wide world isn't about a damn Sheriff election. There are genuinely good people in law enforcement. I don't care what you think!!!

Maybe if you took the time to actually read what I typed you would have seen where I stated that it very well could have been just a good officer doing what he should do. As for LPD pushing that's no surprise as they will usually do stuff like that, Lenoir has a policy of doing whatever is needed to provide public service and he/she would have been in trouble had they not helped. You can say what you want but unless you work there I doubt you have a good understanding on the subject. Your world may not revolve around a Sheriff election but then again you dont depend on it to feed your family. If you set in the meetings and heard it come down first hand then you would know. Believe what you want but remember you are not voting for the person who helped push your car out of the road. Have a nice day.

<quoted text>He didn't though that's just it. He (Jones) pulled every string he had to protect Day in return for Days loyal continued service in the Republican Party inner circle, Day is still Chairman for some odd reason. If all goes well now that charges have been dropped Day will return back to CCSO after the election along with several other disgraced former Deputies. Of course the DA went along with not charging Day, Jones controls the party via Day and several other CCSO Deputies on the committee plus the DA will need Jones if his naughty behavior becomes public. It's all one big circle (jerk) for lack of a better term.
Jack Day is not the chairman of the Republican PARTY, Sam Yearick is the Chair and was voted in 3/13 to serve his 2nd term of the party. Please check your facts before you print them .

Im pretty sure they were talking about the Republican mens executive committee which he is chairman of. Most everyone knew that so I don't know why you couldn't keep up with the story. Not that it matters as no one gives a rats butt what they say but its just the principle of it I guess. Its rather obvious Jones is using his influence on the executive committee to get his way despite what anyone else wants.

Jack Day is not the Chair of the Republican Men's Club either he resigned in April of this yr. Someone should get the facts straight before they post BS.

Jones has given a good reference for Jack Day so he would go away and keep his mouth closed, just like he has arranged through a good friend to recommend Longo for employment in Chapel Hill......my goodness, Jones must have given Amy and Jeff references to get them jobs out of town as well, wonder if jones hush favors will keep a lid on things until after the election? I bet not!

This TRUTH impostor is no more of a Republican than the life long Democrat Alan Jones is. I keep wondering how this little fact keeps escaping so called Republicans of this county.
