Way to go. Even though we do not live in towns county we have been reading the news papers, and internet and we are so proud of you for running a clean campaign. It makes me sick to read all the nonsense crap that people write on here and in the paper. Since We are good friends with you and hang out with yall it is kinda funny to read all the bogus stuff. You and your family are wonderful people and I think the people of towns county will be proud to have you as their sheriff. Good luck with the run off. god will guide you through all the way.. after it is all said and done we will have a cook out and a huge bonfire to celebrate. ill bring the m mellows. all the gang in gilmer/bville say. goood luck.

Tonight was a very good evening and Chris appreciates everyone's support, but he will be the first one to tell you that there is work to be done. Continue to spread the word and encourage friends and family to do the same. We can achieve the desired result if we continue to stay on point for the next 3 weeks.

Beautiful, re-Rooster. I love it!

My sincerest congratulations to Chris on this first step in victory. This is a night that should be enjoyed by Chris, his family, and his supporters. I wish I could have been there to celebrate as well!

Tomorrow, work begins on the next step. Those of us who have been following this since the beginning knew this was going to be the outcome, and have been preparing already.

As the results of yesterday's election becomes today's news, be it known that there will be no badgering, gloating or ridiculing of the other candidates' campaigns from the Clinton campaign. These four men felt they had something to offer and exercised their right by offering themselves as candidates. A heartfelt invitation is extended to the supporters of these men to join the crusade to rid TC of the shame, corruption and criminal activity and to help in bringing about pride, honor, dignity and respect to the Sheriff's OFFICE. By helping to do this, you will also be helping to restore the trust and confidence of the citizens of this county.
The choice is now clear as to the candidates. One wishes to return this county to the ways of the "good old days long past" and the other is focused on leading this county into the FUTURE. Chris seeks your advice, assistance and support as this county addresses challenges now facing us and of those quickly coming upon us. Chris Clinton has the ABILITIES TO LEAD us toward a bright and prosperous FUTURE. His opponent wishes to return this county to the past and for many of you now living in TC, you know how it really was in the past. Let each and everyone band together and LOOK TO THE FUTURE. VOTE FOR AND ELECT CHRIS CLINTON --- SHERIFF

A better quote that fits you lifetime is you got egg on your face. Do you wake up scrambled brained thinking about how your candidate got fried? Can I offer just a couple of eggs jokes to make you smile, or "crack up".I can make some good yolks about eggs.
Q. What did one egg candidate say to the other? A.Nothing egg candidates can't talk.
Q. Why did the egg candidate cross the road?
A. Never eggs can't walk.
Q. When did the egg Candidate get elected?
A. Never, he couldn't walk or talk and never showed, kuz he was too yellow.
Remember Lifetime dont get upset, just have fun. I am trying to leave something open so you can put a whooping on me. Give me a minute, no Sorry I dont have a watch or the time. Neither did you candidate. Chris has all the time, talent, energy and experience to bring Towns County out of the past bad History and to a bright Future. He doesnt throw eggs, or negativity. He has great hope and prayers. Please have fun posting and Chris for Sheriff.

I just came back in from a recon trip and as I sat reading these posts, it became quite apparent that there are no more than two ( 2 ) people on all these threads that are trying to convince themselves as well as others, what a fine, wonderful, upstanding, highly religious person the former sheriff is. I received a fax today with info that I would like to pass on to you. You will have to check the validity of this info as I have not had the time to personally check for myself. The info was about the sheriff's office from the 1970's until the present. There was a sheriff who was sent to prison for drug charges and who was his chief deputy? Who was appointed sheriff after the conviction? Who was beat for his actions and conduct while in office? The candidate who beat him just plead guilty to felony charges and is now awaiting his sentencing. Who in their right mind would want to return to the "good ole days when he was sheriff" knowing what really happened during his time in office.
The law-abiding citizens of TC now have the opportunity to elect an HONEST, CHRISTIAN, HUSBAND and FATHER that will restore PRIDE, HONOR, and DIGNITY to the SHERIFF's office. By doing this, the citizens will once again be able to hold their heads high and declare to the world, I AM FROM TOWNS COUNTY and I AM PROUD OF IT. VOTE CHRIS CLINTON -- FOR ALL OUR SAKES.

You post rumors without having time to check the validity???? I will tell you, This is nothing more than a rumor, or lie being started by a supporter for the other candidate. I LIVED HERE THEN - Yes, a former Sheriff was arrested in the 70's and

NO, Rudy Roach DID NOT WORK FOR TOWNS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPT WHILE THAT SHERIFF WAS IN OFFICE. He won the following election, and was elected as Sheriff.

To me this says a lot about this supporter for Clinton. He is posting what is nothing more than a lie in order to try to get votes for his candidate. This is not the way we should want a Sheriff to get into office.

Sniper, you should ask your candidate about this, his family lived here and knows who the Sherif was that was sent to prison, and knows who did and did not work for him. If Clinton is the man I think he is, and he is above lies, he will not want you to be spreading lies to get votes.

Yes, I did forget, he was appointed as Dover was for Eller this past summer, then he was elected. I was much younger then, and not so interested in politics. However, I do remember who the deputies were when the former Sheriff was arrested and Roach was not working in the county.

It has come to my attention after reading posts after the vote was tallied that the rr/gh camp have changed tactics. They had no problem before spreading lies and rumors about Clinton on all these forums and started several weeks ago. They had no foundation for the rumors they were spreading ranging from Clinton turning Hiawassee into a sanctuary city (LMAO), calling this Christain man a cult leader while making fun of his Christain beliefs, attacks on his children being homeschooled, attacks on his parents and wife, attacks on his morals and values, and about anything else you can think of or care to read back on. They even began trying to dig up his years in high school. They were quick to defend roach but still have never pointed out which flaws on him are rumors. Please tell me which are rumors on roach...all the wives, all the wrecks, the girlfriend, and the rest. It has become obvious that the rr camp do not like the numbers now. They had no problem attacking anything they could dream up before the vote and now, they want to play nice. I am sure the reason for this has nothing to do with the fact that the gossip they were spreading about Clinton was just that, gossip, and most of the questions and statements I've read on here about roach seem to be true. I guess if you have a closet full of skeletons it is best not to open your door. But did yall forget? Yall opened it weeks ago. CLINTON FOR SHERIFF

I have told before of much prayer that I have had with the only living God about Towns Co. and the S.O. election. What I did not tell is that I did not pray for a candidate but for the people of Towns Co.. I prayed for the future of T.C. and its residents and visitors. I also advised God that I was leaning towards C.C.{as if God didn't already know) but did not want that considered. What I wanted was as much safety, serenity & peace of mind as the S.O could bring into the community. I have faith in the great works so far and I pray that if C.C. is the right man to bring peace, justice, fairness, experience and the overall respectable performance of the S.O. to T.C., that God will continue to bless him with your vote. Please join me and many many more for that exciting day come Dec. 5 and vote CHRIS CLINTON FOR SHERIFF.
