Ha! Already not following his word....first he was moving to Oconee county, then he was going to nursing school....now running for sheriff! It is actually a shame, b/c now if a worthy or qualified republican candidate does run they may lose votes to un-informed voters who vote for him....this is exactly how Mike Smith is going to slither his way back into his comfy chair and keep Ogelthorpe law enforcement a joke! Not good. Nothing personal against Griffin, but once you meet him you will be able to tell, he is a man of words, not actions.

If Attaberry happened to be elected, Oglethorpe County would have to deal with the same crap just a different name as sheriff.

Um......yeah. This is a joke right? This guy is an idiot and a pathological liar. In charge of "speacial operations"? You work for Oconee County SO dumb ass!! "special operations" is two motor cycles and a canine unit fuck tard! I'm sure if you asked him though, he'd make it sound like he commanded a unit of a hundred men. This guy is a compleat moron and the biggest lying sack of shit you've ever seen. Scott Berry had better watch his political back in Oconee as well with this two faced snake working for him. He bashes Berry every chance he gets behind his back and then smiles in his face and has kissed ass for the rank that he has gotten in Oconee. Lmao, It blows my mind that this idiot had the balls to post this shit. I hate the way mike smith has done the Oglethorpe SO and would vote for most anyone else BUT this psyco. Lmao!!! I just can't get over this....

I have talked to Jimmy Fulcher and he said he would like to run and be the next sheriff of Oglethorpe County. Jimmy said he loves the people of Oglethorpe county and has almost 34 years in Lawenforcement.He did work over 5 years as chief investgator at the Sheriff's Office, He did recover a lot of stolen property.I know because some of that property was mine,a man went to jail.Has any other investgator done that in a past year. Jimmy said he would be truthful with the people and the sheriff's office employees , and let the deputies go to training so they could better do the job.What do you thank about Fulcher as your next Sheriff?

I ain't voting for him because you say you're from Salem, Alabama and everybody knows that Salem is in Georgia.

I know this guy from oconee. All I have to say is that whoever is going to back him financially is pissing in the wind. This guy is the typical "cop type" and talks a good game but does not relate well to the public because he is a HUGE LIAR! Attaberry is a complete waste of time and money. Other than Attaberry himself and the poor unfortunate misinformed individual(s) dupt into backing him, you find one person that has ANYTHING good to say about this guy and I'll kiss your a** on Main Street.

Yeah, I guess you will. But, we have to come all the way to Baton Rouge for this osculation. Furthermore, the typical "cop type" is a very good individual who protects and serves. This yahoo must not be typical.

Poor choice of words. I should say "stereo typical" cop type. In other words, he's not very people friendly, is very fake, lies, and acts and does his job in a very robotic robo cop kind of way.

I'm sorry, but some of the comments here are outragous! I live in the same neighborhood with the Attaberry family and while I have not yet made up my mind on who I will be supporting for Sheriff I am fond or Mr. Attaberry and his wife. He has always been courteous to me and helpful when I sought advice a year or so ago. I encourage everyone to please seek out the opprotunity to meet all our canidates before making an informed decision on who will earn your support. I wish there was a helpful forum where everyone could come and have clean and friendly discussions without people making such ugly comments about people. It almost makes me wonder if some of the opposing canidates just hide behind fake names and make ugly accusations. I have not yet spoken with Mr. Attaberry about his running for sheriff, but I look forward to meeting all canidates and having the opprotunity to vote for someone who will make a difference in the way our sheriff's office is perceived.

While I understand your position and good intentions, I'm sure by your statement alone that you don't truly know Attaberry. I don't know about these other people making these comments or person as you mentioned, but I have known Attaberry for years and if you were to ask anyone that's known him for any length of time and had some sort of relationship with him you would hear all of these things these people are saying. This man IS a pathological liar! He HAS in fact on several occasions bashed Scott berry horribly behind his back to me personally infront of other people. Now I'm no Scott berry fan myself but to speak of him in the way Attaberry has just to turn around and act as if he's his best friend to clime rank as he has is disgusting and speaks to his character. If you like this type of person, more power to you but I'm sure that many will not vote for this guy knowing how he is and the dirt that would come out.

Well, I will take a rain check on the butt kissin, but I dont have anything BAD to say about Attaberry. Known him for about 10 years I guess....if I lived in Oglethorpe county I would vote for him, no doubt about it. If I afford it, will give money to his campaign.
