IT SEEMS TO ME TO MANY PEOPLE ARE ON HERE SLINGING MUD AND PUSHING FOR THEIR FAVORITE CANIDATE WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS AN HONEST BREAK DOWN OF THE CANIDATES REAL QUALIFICATIONS. I HAVE TALKED TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEPOLE ABOUT THIS ELECTION AND NO ONE SEEMS TO HAVE THE SAME STORY ABOUT ANYONE. WHAT MATTERS TO ME AS A CITIZEN OF HOWELL COUNTY IS 1 A STRONG LOVE OF FAIMLY/FRIENDS/NEIGHBORS/CHILD REN 2 A DESIRE TO SEE OUR CHILDREN BROUGHT UP IN A SAFE-PROGRESSIVE COUNTY 3 A COMMITMENT TO PUT A STOP TO THE RAMPANT DRUG (METH) AND THEFT PROBLEM WE FACE IN THIS COUNTY 4 A SHERIFF WITH HOME TOWN VALUES AND A LOVE FOR OUR WAY OF LIFE I THINK THESE VALUES WILL SERVE HOWELL COUNTY AND MY VOTE WILL GO TO THE PERSON I THINK BEST SHOWS THESE QUALITIES AS OF WHAT I KNOW RIGHT NOW THAT PUTS MY VOTE WITH RD BUT I WILL BE AT THE DEBATE WITH AN OPEN MIND

I was going to vote for Shannon but after reading all that imf has to say I think I will check out the other candidates
I would just like to say that so just because some one that is voting for a candidate says something bad or offensive about another dose not make the candidate a bad person. I am good friends with one of the candidates and have helped them in many of their campaign booths and we have had ppl that we dont even know say "Hey you got my vote" so dont let what people say about a candidate influance you. Pick your candidate and stick with him. If your want more info about one of them just go to google and type in "Candidates for Howell County Sheriff" and you will find their websites.

JUST DON'T VOTE FOR THOMPSON! Any of the other candidates would be a better choice. We need a sheriff that will actually work for the citizens of Howell County, not just draw a paycheck.
Well if you want a hard working sheriff then don't vote for Heddelsten either!!! I was at the fair in West Plains on friday night and while all the other candidates were out there untill it closed at midnight, Heddelsten packed up and left at like 10. If he cant even stay untill the fair is over to get more votes then what happens if he gets in there and gets a call at 3 in the morning after a long day at work. He would do himself some good to change his slogan to "9 to 5 sheriff". at least the public will know the truth before they make the mistake of electing him

This is fact. Check for yourself, just call KKDY and ask which candidates will be present.
As far as "Why?". Not sure on Reid.. he can bullshit a bullshitter.. Shannon, just doesn't have a clue! But, says he's not a public speaker.

I would think that not attending this debate would be like shooting themselves in the foot. Maybe they are confident enough to think they have it won already. I don't think that is the case for sure. I'm anxious to hear what all of them have to say and I don't think anyone expects them to be perfect public speakers.
