I believe that Slater lost big time last election and I have not seen him or really heard him speak out on issues like the 2nd. amendment. You are correct that Adams has only been in the schools. The only one who stood up for our 2nd. amendment rights is Sutton. But I have too disagree with you on Sutton and workers compensation. I would not spread that he is committing any crime with out substantial evidence. Why would he jeopardize his campaign for a few dollars after all the time he has spent. I'm sure the county is keeping a close watch on those cases.
We will see.
Unfortunately, he is correct in saying that Sutton did commit fraud claiming to be injured or sick but out chasing pigs. It is a true statement ask any deputy.

Im leaning toward Bilton Morgan. Slater is a nice guy but he has never been a supervisor.

<quoted text>Dear Inside the paint,Have you been "Huffing" Your paint?If Deputy Adams is so tight with Sheriff Janney as you claim then why hasn't he been pushed up the ladder?Talk about smoke and mirrors!The Sheriff position is an elected post,not something you get "picked" for as you claim.You file, you run,you get elected by the people.Oh by the way,my money says Scotty Adams would SMOKE you with a baseball.
Hey Stupid do your homework. he was never promoted because he is an idiot. Why is it that other came along and got promoted but he couldn't. It's because he is nothing spectacular. Get in the game and watch. Barry is pushing him like the kids in rising sun high school are pushing dope. Scotty couldn't find the plate. Learn politics and you will see the game from the good seats

Hey Inside(your own little bubble),If you work in law enforcement and refer to your colleages as idiots you should be fired!Desparaging someone you might have to count on in life or death is foolish.There is a reason why cops almost never throw each other under a bus.Nothing spectacular?Sounds like you are your own hero.Your foot is in your mouth and I hope Scotty or Barry puts their foot up your ass.

I was at Northeast Xmas parade and noticed that Adams had a large campaign sign up. I believe he is in violation of election rules. Cause you can only put up signs a certIan number of days before voting and must be taken down within time frame. So my question is if he can't obey or understand a simple rule like this how can be be Sheriff.

A quick search of the web shows it's legal as it's a 1st Amendment issue if its on private property. Many signs up in Harford County already and I've seen some other candidates signs up here in Cecil already.

It will come down to the primary in Sep. between Adams and Sutton. Sutton has the name recog.and the FOP and Adams has the backing of Janney and the schools. Should be an interesting race.

I have never received a speeding ticket in the state of Maryland, why do you keep trying to defend a criminal. Call a spade a spade! Sutton is a criminal, he should switch back to democrat would get a lot more support from his fellow law breakers and sympathizers of criminals.

Put a foot in my ass? Highly unlikely. Has Barry publicly endorsed Scotty? He won't because he doesn't want his name involved. Scotty would lose votes! You my friend don't understand or have integrity. A stand up guy wouldn't be afraid to point out his colleagues deficiencies so the can grow. Wake up minor leaguer. Morgan will whip their asses

Dear Paint Breath,How can somebody who knows it all be so clueless?You mean to tell me an endorsement from the two term Sheriff,which a county poll indicated is the most popular elected public official would cost a candidate votes?You've got to be on the baggie!Calling a colleague an idiot somehow gives you integrity!Wow!It has been said it is better to be thought as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.So keep talking fool.

Scotty Adams made a good choice with naming Widdos as his Chief Deputy but I truly believe that Adams should back and endorse Widdos to run for State Attorney
This county needs a change now
It's time to restore the residents faith in the State Attorneys Office
Widdos with his knowledge and integrity would be such a great change for the greater good and won't let money and pressure change the way that laws are written

What are you talking about???? Widdoes is a TOP COP... The BEST in the county and top 5 in the state! You can't re-write laws in a career. Let's focus on getting the law enforcement on board and then pushing the SA to keep the creeps behind bars.

You must not have understood what my post was
I'm saying a man like Widdoes who actually has integrity would make such a difference in the way that the cases are prosecuted in Cecil County
He would not stand behind these back door deals that Rollins is allowing to go on

As I understand it, Chris Sutton has made 0 (ZERO) arrests in 2013 and has not made a drug arrest in over 18 months. I do not think he takes the job seriously enough to be our Sheriff. If he was doing his job, I'm sure he could have found someone to arrest. Also, Sutton has had 3 internal investigations in the past year resulting in disciplinary actions. This does not sound like a guy who deserves to be Sheriff.

There are two sides to every investigation.Is he being targeted?Also can't remember last time I saw Sutton on the road.Not all police officers"walk the beat".Some are supervisors etc.Will this county be in"trouble"if Sutton is our sheriff?I doubt it,He has been at this law enforcement thing for a long time.Will he be the best manager of the sheriff's dept.?That's up to we the voters.To make an intelligent choice you should go to the forum at the county administration bldg.tomorrow night(thursday)@7pm.You will be able to hear the sheriff candidates debate for yourself and even ask questions.Go to the
Republican club of Cecil County website for more info.They are whose sponsoring the debate.

Would like for Sutton to answer a few questions: I have heard that Sutton is lazy. How many arrests has he had in the past 24 months? Also, he was served a peace order by a woman in Elkton. WTH was that about? Running for sheriff and being served a peace order?

I was in court that day and the judge found the peace order unfounded . It was someone by a witness statement that had an axe too grind . No one can be lazy running for office. If Sutton had skeletons in his closet I'm sure Janney would have brought them too light.
