Just wondering

Can anyone confirm or add anything to what I've heard about that Attaberry guy running for Sheriff? I heard he filed bankruptcy like two years ago? I've also heard from 4 different people that he's offered them jobs "when he gets elected" at between $18 to $20 per hour. Also been told that he's made several arrogant statements about being a "shoo in" and that not even Sid Stephens would be able to beat him. Anyone else heard any of this? How can someone this irresponsible with their own finances with plans to already jerk the Sheriff's Office budget up to something more on par with a metro Atlanta county than a rural county of 15-20,000 people plan to pay for all of this foolishness?

I have heard about the bankruptcy thing. Doesn't seem like he's well liked by a lot of people based on the stuff I've heard about him. The main thing I hear about him is that he's a huge liar.

I learned a long time ago you can't believe crap you hear in this county so you'll need to make up your mind based on other things, not hearsay.

Sid is not paralyzed ! when any of you see him you will see for yourself. i am not even sure what his disablilty was but its obvious you cant see it. if i was a betting person i would say mike was more of a disability than Sid is any day of the year ! if only we could compare medical and medicine costs !

Anyone who is stupid enough to get their information off this website obviously isn't smart enough to be voting anyway. Quit being stupid people! As long as Mike Smith and his bunch of ill equiped idiots are out of office come November I don't care if Sid is paralyzed or if Attaberry is on welfare.

I wish I could turn back the clock and have Ray Sanders back in office ! Things were much better, the S.O. didn't have bad publicity, and crime was down. That's what we need to get back to.

For all the Mike supporters out there...You keep electing this man then you want to talk about Attaberry's supposedly offering people jobs. Lets have a history lesson. Shalon Holmes Huff---Campaign Manager now a Captain with the department. Jessica Wray and Jonette Varner---Campaign committee people who both worked cushion jobs after getting Mike elected until Mike just couldn't keep their stupid acts under wraps. I love how you all get on this website and talk dirty under fake names. I don't think its Attaberry or Stephens supporters either. "We LIKE MIKE" needs to run a clean campaign, but then again they don't have anything postive to point out about their canidate so lets just make up stuff about the other two.

i have told folks from years back that mike is a snake in the grass and how he rolls when it comes to his campaign ! it goes all the way back to the years when daddy ran against his daddy. you wouldnt believe all the sneaky little tricks they pulled. we gave him the benefit of doubt after he grew up, worked a while on law enforcement. we even supported him when he ran te first time, just to find out from day one that he walked into the office that his low sneaky background had never changed ! this election is gonna be a doozy since he has more than one running against him. gonna keep him and his campaign crew working hard ( for a change )
