Come on people........The 2012 Primary Election is (7&1/2) seven and a half months away. Lets get it started, who are we voting for? There are several very important offices up for grabs.Not only on the national scale. We need to start discussing the "BEST" canidates for the positions. Sheriff is a BIG ONE...The next Sheriff will set the stage for law enforcement for years to come...Magistrate is another.....Lets start filling up the "Think Tank"......We the People.....for the People......by the People....Lets take back Doddridge County.

I think he is his own person and will not be manipulated by jerks who lead the party, pretending to be true republicans. Rumor has it that Turner is putty in the hands of Adams and Swann, so that alone will keep me from voting for Mr. Turner. You are known by the company you keep.

GARTH W. BECK FOR PROSECUTING ATTORNEY!! has the experience and Will Prosecute the Crime. Brooke campaigned to be "Tough on Crime"! NOT ONE TRIAL IN 4 YEARS! So just where did all that crime go? All the counties around us have trials. And the number of abused children cases is a disgrace to this county. If the last 4 years is what she considers "tough" I would really not want to read all those plea bargain agreements she enters into or better yet dismisses. Check it all out info is public knowledge and obtained at the court house. And just what is up with going through 3 assistant prosecutors? What I hear she never really had the experience. But Doddridge County voted her in because everyone knows her dad Andy Knight. When you vote in the next election try voting for someone who can do the job! Just because the family's name is well known, does not mean they will do the job.

I heard that Stan Webb was running for county commissioner. Also, heard that one of our newest board memebers does not even have his own daughter attend Doddridge County schools? I heard she goes to Bridgeport H.S. What does that say about the newest board member? He will never get my vote again. However, I think he still have some time left before he has to run again. Still I have a problem with that. I did not think that Jerry Turner was running for Sheriff. I heard that one of the deputies was running. However, this is Doddridge County and it is nothing but a big rumor mill so who knows the truth anyway?

You know, politics is an ugly business. And so many times we hear the term "negative campaigning" when a candidate is called to task and their record exposed while they are trying to defend their desire to be given a second term. Why is that???

It ISN'T "negative campaigning" at all....it is simply exposing their record in office in order for us to make a more informed "performance evaluation" on an employee.(i.e., the elected official is the employee ....being evaluated by the voter--the employer) So heck....what is wrong with exposing their records in office?

Have there been any trials in the last two years? How many dismissed or pled out instead? What is Brooke's tract record as our county's “tough on crime” prosecuting attorney? And how has Jerry Evans voted on the issues these past 6 years……does he seem knowledgeable, attentive and competent at the meetings? Or clueless and snoozing through many a meeting?

I say every stupid comment or quote made by a commissioner during a commission meeting NEEDS to be public knowledge, as well as how that commissioner voted on issues NEEDS to be public knowledge, as well as the trial and conviction record (if any) of our prosecutor NEEDS to be public knowledge.

Yes, Yes, I know...it already is public info. To those who have or want to take time to go to the court house and dig it up. But the candidates and campaigns who run against these incumbents should be utilizing this info to EXPOSE/INFORM the voters of the “track record”(job performance) of these people who have disappointed us in office, yet dare seek another term.

And if THAT is considered "negative campaigning" ..then so be it!!!

And if any of you pull that lever WITHOUT knowing the track record of the person already in the job (who is seeking reelection) or not know the qualifications, position on issues, and/or agendas of those who seek to take their job from them, then shame on you!

You'll get what you blindly endorse and tolerate. And that won't be much. Just look at the shambles the county is in and then vote to do better.

Do agree, QO, everything as need should be brought to the open. Not allow issues hidden as some politicians have.

Make each move show accountability. I do realize in the past this has not been done. But it is time and with the backers of the cc and aa involved; Well, take it for what it is and has been.

Jerry is next in line for his term to be completed and in my opinion he needs to go. No more sleeping at the helm.... Yes, I did say sleeping; he has been seen numerous times nodding off during cc meetings. And, we pay a salary for that!!!

Whomever wins the next term, I do hope will be more knowledgeable and have AND use common sense. In my opinion, little has been shown over the past few years. Only deceit and vengence prevailed.

I also heard Jack Adams spoke out in the CC meeting yesterday. Does the rule of (no public comment) stand for only a certain few? Seems this could be an issue of discrimination....

These are only my opinions..

A Board of Ed member that sends their child to another county to school! That's terrible! Is that really true? People in the county need to know it if it is.
As far as Brook Knight, I always wondered why she wouldn't consider letting Garth Beck stay on as her assistant, I heard he did an excellent job for Lu Sammons.

LOLOOLOLOLO -- Brook KNight whose fatehr is Andy Knight the brother to Pam Knight Underwood -- Carson's 1st wife -- Does anyone have a clue now?????

You ask for common sense -- I would just be satisfied if the one commissioner would stay awake!!! Is that too much to ask?????

(But I guess that is wht JAck A sets on the front seat at the meetings -- so he can speak up (out of turn) and wake Jerry up!

maybe we should be wishing the other two commissioners snooze during meetings also. that way, with all 3 asleep they can't screw things up anymore.

Good ones, GOP Watchdog and guitar man.

Best thing to do, in my opinion, is to keep Jack A and his cronies out of everything.

Does a left-hand thread sound feasible?

To Dodridge County Citizen, Brooke did not keep Garth on because Garth is a threat to her. He worked in that office for more than two years and under the direction of Lu Sammons one of the States' best Prosecuting attorneys. And as you can see there have not been any trials since Lu left office. Garth assisted in one of this County's hardest trials and that was the Keigley murder trial. I think that for her to keep him on and have to ask him how to proceed with prosecution would be a huge blow to her ego. I just dont understand the reasoning for no trials in 3 years, and the decrease in crime prosecuted. Another thing to look at is how many cases have been dismissed? and Just what kind of Pleas have been accepted? why are the Child Abusers still abusing children? and these cases have decreased while surrounding counties have increased. Chances are we are paying a prosecutor to be a social butterfly and talk about the price, next to the Judge, that position is the highest paid in the County. Quiet Observer, you are right on, it is not negative campaigning, but making the people we put into office ACCOUNTABLE. Can't change her track record now but we can sure put an end to this in the future. Maybe if we have someone in there to prosecute the crime, less criminals would move into Doddridge County. Between the Sheriff (her Uncle) and the Prosecutor (Social Butterfly) this County has become a Criminal playground.

Sound advice!!!! In my opinion, any candidate that the Doddridge county republican executive committee leadership is promoting, is most likely a candidate that does not possess accountability and fiscal responsibility, but rather, may well be a candidate that is subservient to a bunch of idiots who assume themselves to have political "clout." (They only have as much political "clout" as you allow them to have!)

No indeed, just knowing that a candidate is "in bed," so to speak, with the likes of Adams and Swann,(meaning being touted by them) would be enough to raise my eyebrows and keep me from voting for that candidate! I heard rumor that a candidate for sheriff told them "no thank you" when they approached him early on. As far as I am concerned, that incident spoke VOLUMES to me that the said candidate cannot be manipulated by the cronies you speak of!

Voters, keep your eyes and ears open!!!! Any candidate that seems to be linked to those two so-called republican "party leaders" is a candidate that you should think twice about voting for. The Doddridge Co. Republican Party in this county is a joke. Their endorsement of any candidate running for office should send up a red flag to all the voters.

Just remember, they brought you the likes of the now ousted Ms. A, Jerry, and Shirley...and look at what we've gotten under their leadership. We're broke, and with little to show for the highest tax rate in this area of WV.

And the job performance records of those incumbents who seek reelection will be brought out in the open for all to see. Not negative campaigning.... just enlightened voting!!!! Something Doddridge Co. has never seen before. But let’s make that change!

OK folks, the levy vote is behind us now. Now it's time to roll up our sleeves and start working on the May 2012 primary. Heard someone say this evening that Jerry is planning to run for commission again and also they said that Melissa Hinterer will be running also. Just what I heard, can't confirm.... but how do you like them apples so far?

No disrespect to him but he does not a have background in Criminal Justice. Going to college for classes in criminal justice in no way gives you a background in Law Enforcement. The problem in this county has been having sheriff after sheriff that has never been a professionaly trained officer. This election will set the precedent for law enforcement in our county for the next several years. This is the very reason they are trying to change the laws and requirements for all canidates to be WV certified officers. This only makes sense.

I heard that mickey mouse and Donald duck were running for county commissioners. IMO they would do more for this county then Evans, Shirley, and Williams have.

We need people at the top that are for the people, by the people. Not for themselves. Not only in doddridge county but in the state and in the federal government. Someone that does not have a hidden agenda and will not play puppet to others. We need someone that will listen to the people of the county, state, and federal government.

IMO mickey mouse fits that description. As does Donald duck..
