I don't see anything Grice has done since he has been in office, Don't think he is the best choice for Davidson County

Hege has jumped on the illegal band wagon for attention. His ego won't let an opportunity pass without some way to get in the news. He is a felon and always will be. He has not proven any change to a better person except in interviews.
He is known as the most corrupt sheriff in N. C. He wants that big pension and tv time. We need and deserve better than him.

Hege on May 5: "We wuz robbed!" His bodyguard will be making the long trip back to Rhode Island. Bye, and don't come back no more.

Hege for sheriff...what a joke & that is what Davidson County will be known as if he is elected to be sheriff again. Everyone should be able to see right though this guy and know that he is going to be the attention grabbing, camera hog that he was the first time around. I think he said it best when he made statements about "No second chances", what makes him so special to his own polices. It still just puzzles me how he can legally run for office. Shows just how messed up the system really is.

I hear ya, Bubber. Hege ain't no paper pusher. He's a crime fighter. In addition to that he's a lifelong CRIMINAL. And criminals get busted and do time, unless they are a cowardly POS and cop a plea.

"There's no riding the fence with Hege. You either love him or you don't." said former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege.
If Hege is being quoted correctly, why is he talking about himself in the third party? It's almost as if he is detaching his personal self from his candidate self!?
