I hope and Pray that the citizens of Treutlen Co Don't vote for Tommy Corbin the so called christian. If what he has is Christianity I dont want any part of it. I have lived in Treutlen Co all my life and never have I seen such a corrupt sheriff's department as I have seen in this one. Tommy Corbin is not for the citizens of this county he is for what he can get out of it and who he can step on. He and his department has bullied their way to the run off.

At least I'm not going around to churches and trying to speak about The Lord and then going back and cursing out inmates as he has done. that not judging that is fact.

You must be one of the inmates that's been cursed at!!! Either that or your family/friends are jailbirds. How else would you know that to be a fact?

I am not one to judge but I do know that Tommy Corbin does not go to car races and get drunk nor does he go out partying and going to Kerrigans on a regular basis. I am not dissing anyone, only telling the facts. EVERYONE, please vote for Tommy Corbin on August 5 and for the November election. Thanks

lifelong residents remarks about bullying his way to the run-off is exactly right.a person should be able to run for office in America without fear of retaliation,i guess this does not apply to treutlen co.kight was retaliated against for running for sheriff.i guess "its just me" has never done any wrong,if so cast the first stone.if i am correct there was only one perfect person.i have talked to many people tommy's age that remember him drinking and doing other things that he locks people up for now.most of the time bullying goes along with wearing a badge,lets try a common citizen for sheriff.everybody wants to put wayne down bacause he got in trouble,but has everyone forgotten he devoted 20yrs of his life to us.now that he can't do anything for us we all of a sudden don't have any use for him,thats as cowardly as it gets.VOTE LANCE HOOKS SHERIFF!!!!!

i was not born and raised on treutlen but i have lived here for several years. during these years and especially the past 4 years i have gotten to know Sheriff Corbin and he is a man of his word. He has dedicated his time and energy into making treutlen co a safe place to live. Sheriff Corbin and his staff work hard to see that the citizens are taken care of. I do not know Lance Hooks so therefore I cannont say anything about him because i know only the rumors i have heard. All i do know is that Sheriff Corbin has proven that he wants to keep drugs and other crimes out of our county. he has the knowledge and the capability to do his job and so does his employees.

If they have commited a crime and are in jail, they deserve to be cursed like dogs.

Wayne and his 20 years of service do not have anything to do with his son-in-law who by the way has 0 years of law enforcement experience. We most certainly DO NOT need a common citizen for sheriff we need law enforcement experience and that person in Sheriff Tommy Corbin.

Yes, I also know this to be the absolute truth. Everyone needs to be at the Aug. commissioners' meeting, which will PROBABLY by Thursday, 8/7 (since Tues., 8/5 will be election day), to protest this frivolous spending of taxpayers' money.

I pay my fair share of taxes, and I also have a full-time job in Soperton. I just don't agree with how the commissioners are spending my tax dollars.
