Anyone but that lying crooked snake Julie Holmes. Apple did not fall far from the tree with her. She needs to get a law degree and follow in daddy's shoes.

Listened to Chrissy Hammomd and liked her thaughts, attitude and definately does not seem as one of the good ole boys. Never can be sure of that. She has done some homework already, has ideas to follow up on, and most of all most pleasent to talk to. Never heard a negative word on another candidate, never a stab at a remark or issue of another candidate. Just desire to do a good job for the county residents.
Have really grown tried of some others I's and My's and no one should consider anyone else. Looks like she will be a very good addition to a new roster of county leaders.
Some of the others really have a lot of county baggage attached. New year to begin a new set of officials that do not have years of favors to repay to another.

Like Hammond
Ya I like Her husband. She is a Harrell! Just another family name in P Town. She is absolutely delusional !!! No real experience. Always quits and does not think clearly!
Wow really. Even after you spoke to her? I wonder which personality you got. I heard she has a few!

Wilkinson gets my vote. Need new blood, new ideas, not same ole, same ole or someone only looking to use government employees to subsidize local business owners or plow the road for other political endeavors.

Myers is the only way to go. Her husband my be mayor and many think she is only in it for the powertrip - but she is the real deal. She truely loves Putnam County and has done a ton behind the scene that never gets attention. She'll make a great Tax Collector.

Myers being the way to go??? C'mon!!! I know many people that has called on this dip for IMPORTANT things and she NEVER had the time to get back to them! It wasn't their first choice to contact but they were referred to her! Now she might call yo at election timebut in between the races,don't look for her to!! All Myers knows is how to make the donuts and coffee and then sit down and eat them!!!!

Your wrong ! Your vote is your vote - but when it counted Linda Owens and now Linda Myers has been in Putnam Counties corner. There is no perfect candidate. And I agree sometimes County Commissioners have allowed phone calls to go unreturned and maybe just maybe they did not return a call because they knew there was nothing they could do to fix the issue at hand. Putnam County residents myself included sometimes does not like the answer "No".

It's your vote - make it count. Just don't trash talk the candiates. Use facts -- not pointless people have said to me comments.

What are you NUTS. If not Linda then it will be Brad the run at the mouth. This county has had enough of BRAD. There are Ethics charges already in the works for the lies he has already given. Not to mention the diservice to the citizens of this county.
The underhanded mess with G.P. should have been enough to take
him out but G.P. did that first. Then Brad lied again in his heartfelt news-rag article saying he resigned. The truth could knock him over and he would not conceed that he is a lier.
There are two choices for tax collector and Brad is the last person that this county can afford. Apples for Apples, Myers is the only chance this county has to survive.
One good thing is that many many citizens in this county have learned how to go after public records and how to check on what is going on in many of the countys offices.
Protect what little we now have and Vote for Linda.
Brad be gone for ever!

Yes, the charges for ethics are on file. The hearing date was set for the end of Sept and has now been post-poned until the end of Nov, right until after the election. Isn't it odd that that will be after the election and if by some really far out chance this county is crazy enough to elect Brad as Tax Collector, that the only way to remove him is by decision of the Gov. of Fl.
He has already failed to report proper figures on required county financial forms, and as Tax Collector has no one to check his spending of the T. Colls. budget funds. Now that should be RED FLAG enough to make this county stand and take notice.
