Although I am voting for Tom Worthan because I know what he has done and will do here, I recently met Romona Jackson Jones. She is quite a sophisticated lady and very bright and personable.
If Tom weren't running, I would definitely vote for her because she has excellent credentials and a stellar attitude.

I have met Romona and she is the better candidate. She has a proven track record with managing budgets. She has also controlled mass disasters including hurricanes, earthqaukes and the shooting at Columbine high school in CO. I gained this knowledge of her only by speaking with her for a moment. I know Tom has run Douglas County for for sometime, but old is not always good! I am voting for Romoma Jackson Jones!!

I grew up in Douglas Co,Douglas Co is no longer a place where color is the main factor in making a decision about who's the best person for the job.
Tom and Ms Jones are both good people.We are bless
to have them both in this race.I am White.I have done my homework on both people running.Ms Jones has the experience in budget mangement.Ms jones has mangaged 10k people/ dealt with compliance issues on the state and federal level.she is better equipped to handel our changing econmy and demographics.I thank you Mr WORTHAN FOR YOUR SERVICE but your time has passed.You lead us with the best of your resources and skill.
But our county needs new ideas and new methods.

You are so correct about TW he sure does know how to spend your money.
I can't wait until he goes for another millage rate increase so he can keep spending on new parks,foot paths, guard rails,$114 mil. jail & on & on.

You are so right we need more of his bs.
