I am from Nicholas County and I think that Bob Vaughan is the best pick for Nicholas County. He knows how to treat people and I think he will get things in order. He surely don't set back on his behind and expect others to do his job. He is a very hard worker and is a retired state policeman. I would vote 10 times over for that MAN instead of these BOYS we have in office now.

you think Nicholas county is bad that daniel dotson was prosecutor for braxton county, and we have a magistrate whos last name is cruikshanks who is running for magistrate and she was charged with helping her som intimidate a states witness or some such stuff and she has a hearing coming up so you tell me how she's allowed to run again? braxton county is one of the most crooked counties in the state.it's where drug dealers get no time for snitching, where sex offenders can be on probation and sell drugs,do what they want and have sex with underage girls and not get no time for that, and where if you know the right person you can get out of prison/ jail and get all charges dropped no matter what your crime is. people get 4th and 5th dui's and they dont even lose their license and if they do they contimue to drive,get arrested and let go again.

Gary Jarrell is a good man. All of you on here that are disrespecting him are disrespecting all of Nicholas County. He should be Circuit Clerk!

That is funny!!! how is it disrespecting him and how does that affect Nicholas County? He may be a good man, but he needs to get his office in line and maybe actually do something to earn his paycheck rather than sit in the courtroom all day or run the halls.

I don't think anyone is discrediting Gary as being a good man, but have you been to any of the meet the candidates meetings? He talks about his family tree and his "family" being Circuit Clerks and he just wants to follow in their footsteps. He don't know how that office is run, it has went to h*** in a hand basket since he took over. As Tammy said, if you are in the courtroom, Gary is sitting there, there is nothing hard about that, just sit and reach things to the Judge, if court is not in session, you can find him running around the hallways instead of being in the office. I believe the Circuit Clerk should actually work and be in the office with their employees like Ms. Gower did. I say just give it to someone that can actually do the job and keep it running smoothly. Thank goodness May 13th is just around the corner!

Can some give me the pro's/Con's for Gary Jarrell vs. Debbie Facemire? I'm still undecided about who to vote for.

I think we should let experience speak for itself Debbie has worked there during 2 circuit clerks terms. She is more knowledgable about running the office than Gary Jarrell. She actually works and knows what is going on, not running up and down the halls.

It sounds as though someone is very negative because that can't find any thing good to say about Gary's opposing candidate. Those running for office or their supporters should run their own campaign. A candidate can "catch more bees with honey then with vinegar"

Not that I will be voting because I am not currently a resident so doesn't matter to me but since we are airing Summersville's "dirty laundry".My family is still living in Summersville and I lived 20 years there. I know Gary Jarrel and I know Judge Johnson, Gary's appointment to this office was a "favor" because of who his father is, this is typical of Summersville this is why I left and it needs to stop. I hope both Gary's and all of their inside ring of dirty politicians lose this election for Nicholas County's sake.

Judge Johnson is does not have the authority to appoint someone to replace him. It will be the Governor who does that.

I think Nicholas County needs a change and election is coming up. When the Magistrate Court Clerk retired, Judge Johnson appointed to fill the vacancy. 2 from the office applied, he said he had to go with the one with more experience. Then when the Circuit Clerk retired, 2 from the office applied and one had 18 years experience, the other had 9.... guess which one was appointed? the one with 9 years! Also, a month or so ago, the Nicholas Chronicle printed a picture of Sheriff Bennett signing a declaration supporting our troops..... however, he has told numerous people that he would NEVER hire someone in the military ever again. Hummm.. must be election year! And did your realize that in 2 years Judge Johnson will retire and he has stated that Greg Tucker shall be appointed. Now Larry Tucker is running for County Commission, but if he should win, can a convicted felon actually hold office or will that spot be filled by appointing someone else of their chosing? Possibly a LeRose?

The election is over and all of this information is a little stale. Don't you think it's time to take this off the web site?
