A while back, I was told by a current county commissioner that he had helped elect the Sheriff (Ledbetter) and the DA (Johnson) and that "I could kill someone in this county and still be home in time for my dinner" This was NOT a joke. I met the sheriff later that month and mentioned the persons name who told me that. The sheriff responded "he did alot to help get me elected so I can't really say anything about him".
We need someone outside the county (not Angel - he was hand picked by the commissioner who said he could commit murder and be home for dinner)who can be fair and does not OWE anyone anything. When we have commissioners who say things like this, it is time for change from the bottom to to the top.
Blessings to you all - please vote!

I am still planing on running for sheriff. I have 14 years in law-enforcement. This county needs some one from out side to clean it up. And that is what I plan to do.

Give me a name. No fair! I want to be sure I don't vote for anyone he/she recommends. I thought my family would be safe with Gibson. Obviously I was W R O N G!

I think you're on the wrong forum. This is the Morgan County Tennessee forum.

Well Bridges may be able to clean up the county (where ever its at) but he sure wont be any good at the cyber patrol unit :(

I think Ill run for sheriff. Start up the hillbilly swat team to take out meth houses. Nothing scarier that 20 rednecks with guns coming through your door.

Sad fact is that I really dont think we will ever see change here unless the people stand up together and speak out. Maybe we need to form a local guardian angels to take the towns back since the law enforcement cant. 4-50 slightly high country boys with ball bats and BAM you got a cleanup squad!

No I am on the right forum Wrong state. And Mr. Outdoorsman, I know I can clean up Morgan county. You first need to start with the Sheriff's dept. With the deputies that go off and play around and it takes 40min. to 1.5 hours to answere a call, something is wrong. When the offenders that get 4,5,6 and 8 cases of DWI's something is wrong. Either the Sheriff does not care or he is doing something wrong. The last thing you said, that is what I will try to do, try to get people to stand up together and fight crime not fight against each other.

lol sorry William I had to poke a lil fun. In all seriousness I really wish you were running for this county here in Tennessee. I like your views and ideas and perhaps this county could learn something from reading your posts. Good luck in the election, wish us the same because God knows we will need it.

That's fine, I did not take any offence. I am planning to run in the next election. I hope that I can reach a few readers out there to show them and let them know that there is a better way. I just don't know how the people of Morgan Co. can put up with your judicial system the way it is. And I have read your post MR. outdoorsman, and I wish we could do "some of the things you stated" LOL. But there has got to be a better way. And as I stated that there was no offence taken. And I hope that I did not offend you, Sorry if I did. Thanks William Bridges

No sir no offense in any way at all. Me being a southern born corn fed redneck (lol) sometimes my notions are a little beyond what can be legally allowed lol.

The problem in our county is that we are split three ways. Those who don't care, those who care but are afraid to speak up for fear of retaliation and those of us who care and speak out regardless.

I really hope to see more people realize that when united together there is not much they can do in form of retaliation because the consequences will be much greater. Just as an old saying, one man can not bear the weight of boulders but ten men can carry them away. STAND UNITED is the key.

That's right, and I agree with all you said. I too southern born. If we all stand up to those drug dealers and fifths there's not much they can do. Of course when I say stand up to them I mean legally. If we all pull together we can make a difference. When I come to Morgan Co. in march we need to sit down and talk some time. I would really like to get to know the people and problems of Morgan Co. Thanks Outdoorsman, William Bridges

William, I am a little confused at this point however. Are you speaking of coming to Morgan Co TN? and running ? I was thinking you had gotten the wrong state? Im confused now as to which state youre running in. If youre coming to TN to run and reside here rest assured I will vote for you.

Well Mr. Bridges it would be nice to see a fresh face on law enforcement. I am a webmaster so if you need help on your site let me know.

Here is your candidate boys. You said we need a new sheriff who isn't a local and who wont be partial to the good ol boys so remember that when you hit the polls.
