I will be voting for Barry Faulk as our new Twiggs County Probate Judge. We need a change and after discussing my issues/concerns with him, I truly believe he is the man we need for that positive change. He has made it a point to visit all of my family members over the last few weeks. I haven't laid eyes on Fowler or Basley. At this point, if I did it wouldn't matter. My vote will be for Mr Faulk.

I will be voting for :
Darren Mitchum
Bubber Epps
--- let it be known, that one of the candidates that is running for sheriff.. NOT DARREN ...
has been going to the nursing home and filling out "absentee ballots" for the elderly...To steal votes.. this is illegal ... These elderly people do not know what they are signing. This is a cheap shot for votes... but, it runs in the family. His DAD did it too. Goes to show you.
I guess the candidate running is a chip off the
"OLD STONE" --- hahaha no :pun intended.

Ray Bennett has done nothing for Twiggs County unless you count being at the right place at the right time. Bennett can't even do his job without Glenn Barton to hold his hand. We need someone who can run the county without wasting money on a county administrator (or whatever barton's title is).

Ray Bennett also has a problem with women. Sever people around the county have observed Bennett talking down to and being ugly to women.

Twiggs Voter, you are an idiot. Take up your your obvious distaste with the person who rightfully deserves it - Glen Barton. Ray Bennett has brought more jobs and industry to this county that ANYONE. He works tirelessly to get your po-dunk county to a profitable spot versus having it being the laughingstock that the Stone's will keep it at.
Keep it up - and you will be in bed with the drug dealers too. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

I agree that the "STONES" have no place in any Twiggs County Office. They were thieves when doyle was in office.. and trust me -- greg is a CHIP off the old STONE. Darren is the BEST candidate for sherriff. He has made a great impact on this county. I guess that is why all the drug users and dealers like Greg, He is one of them.

THANK GOODNESS Ray Bennett won!!!!! Obviously whoever said he talks down to women does not know him very well. He has 3 beautiful daughters who are very successful and he spoils them rotten. Doesn't sound like a man up talks down to women.

Jeff Stone ran for his self benefit. I heard he wanted the county to pave a road to the land he bought next to Academy sports so he could move his machine shop business there. he got mad and let a few people talk him into running. One was the road supervisor, so that he would not have to work and could take his kids to school in the county truck and work on his hunting clubs. 2. G Stone was another so a STONE and STONE would run the county. 3. One stop man, who is never satisfied with anyone. 4. One of his neighbors that did not get a courthouse job. Folks the last time I counted there were 5 commissioners and it does not take but 3 to make a decision. So all must be satisfied with barton or he would be gone.

Getreal you are so right. 5 commissioners and all it takes to fire or hire is 3. so that tells me the other commissioners are happy with him.

Jeff Stone told everyone he wanted to work to make the schools better, how can he do that when he sends his son to Laurens county school. Have you ever seen him attend anything the county schools have or anything in the county. He was just blowing smoke.
