Margaret has done a good job! I am voting for Margaret. Jessica Roberts hasnt even advertised what she is going to do for this county. Just advertises about her and her family?
And......you can't read either can you! You don't have a family that backs you either......no I am not her family, but when dead beat parents names come out in the papers (of which Matney doesn't want to do) that's when those slobs will pay up!

Fact: Jessica works for the Commonwealth's Attorney--an office controlled for many years by Kenton Smith.
Fact: Kenton Smith has no control over district court as long as Margaret is in office.
Fact: Kenton Smith has a slate of candidates who worked for him: Jessica Roberts, Susan Streible, Shan Embry, and Steve Crebessa.
Fact: If Kenton Smith's candidates win, he will also control district court.
Fact: Jessica has no experience outside of the Commonwealth's Attorney office.
Fact: Jessica has never supervised employees.
Fact: Jessica has never managed a budget.
Fact: Jessica has not attended a single fiscal court meeting, except for a brief appearance on behalf of the Arts Council.
Fact: Jessica claims the current county attorney is not doing her job to collect child support.
Fact: The current county attorney has won awards for child support collection, which is a first for Meade County.
Fact: When faced with the facts, Jessica's people have nothing left but personal attacks.
Fact is nobody knew Margaret before she got in office. She just ran at the right time. She had to keep the office staff because she didn't know anybody else. How do you know that Matney had experience managing employees or budget. Maybe she is flying by seat of her pants.

I went to school with Jessica Roberts, not impressed. Haven't really heard anything about what she plans to do when she get's into office. All anyone can say about her is doesn't her family own Robert's Family Farm?
I have had to deal with the current county attorney Margaret Matney and I am very pleased with the work she has done. She is very fair and know's what needs to be done.
I think for a public office of this nature the county needs someone who isn't from here. That way it won't feel like a high school function everytime you have a problem.
Margaret doesn't care who you are or what your last name is she treats everyone fairly. At the end of the day she knows at the start you put your pants on the same way she did.

Deano Lady,

The reason is that Margaret finds them and brings them to court and Susan Strieble lets them out like she did for that one lady. Margaret finally found him after months of not paying child support, he went to jail and Susan Strieble (your Commonweath Atty) let him out. Now he has skipped out and he is nowhere to be found. People, Check out who you are voting for......Do research on what they have done since been in office. Don't go by hearsay, Some of the candidates have put facts in the paper that I have checked out like what Butch put in there about the drug busts are true. What Haynes put about the deaths in the jail are true. What Margaret put about the award for Child Support is true. Check the facts yourself.

The worst thing Margaret ever did was to hire Martin as an investigator. That silly goose could not investigate his way out of a McDonald's sack. He's just plain creepy! Other than that I have no real complaint about her. Door is always open to me. Unless she is in court. And no, I am not a Republican.

If she is "flying by the seat of her pants" she has done a good job of it. Unlike Darren who was a joke and has no business as a court judge. I had planned to vote against Shan until Darren ran against her. Now she has my vote just to keep his silly ass out.

Ya know who cares what you think! I have lived here all my live and what Deano said is true! You are "new to the area" you do what you want to do.....we'll see what Tuesday brings! Don't care what Butch and Margaret have to say, she and her staff don't know what's going on! I personally know! You can go back to where you came from! To many "out of towners" moving into the area anyhow, bringing their rif-raf with them!

Well my run in with Margaret was her sitting on the bench complaining that she had gotten a bad haircut the day before and what was she going to do until it grew out. She didn't care about my case or the injustice that I had been handed. She talked about her hair for 30 minutes and continued my case because the sheriff's office had dropped the ball on issuing a subpoena (even after I had called their office repeatedly to ask about the subpoena). I was told that it was too bad as I walked out the door with Margaret still carrying on about her hair. I believe these 2 are in bed together (and yes that is probably literal). We all know Butch is quiet the ladies man or so he thinks. If women go to bed for you in exchange for a favor, chances are they probably don't really dig you that much. Just saying

Roberts is a family person who is committed to the county. She will be fair and I guarantee that she won't bitch about her current hair cut and she won't let the sheriff's office operate as it has in the past (if Butch happens to win).

I have nothing to gain from this election other than the hope that the next person in office will care about my problem when I come to them and that they will be prepared as they have been paid by the county to do.

I really don't give a flying crap if you are a democrat or republican or if you are a blue smurf but when hold a public office then you have a duty to look out for the best interest of all the citizens. Matney and Kerrick have failed miserably and I can't wait until they both are LONG GONE

There's only so much that can be done to "make" the deadbeat parents pay. Sounds like you should have found someone a little more responsible to father your children. That's not Margaret's fault.

Jessica Roberts is a snob who can't even show enough enthusiasm about her candidacy to talk to people without reading the notes Kenton and Susan prepared for her. Her statistics are a joke and show that Margaret is not only doing the job, but doing it well. Wonder why only 60 felony child support cases went on to the circuit court? Maybe because Margaret gets people to pay their support. She's won an award for it. The same child support workers who were working for Darren are performing exceptionally well under Margaret. If Jessica wins, they'll be out of a job.
Here's a funny story about a felony child support case. Well, I guess it isn't so funny for the kids who aren't getting any support, but it definitely highlights the problem with Jessica's claims. So Margaret manages to get a guy arrested who's been running from a warrant for not paying his support. He's already got one prior felony child support conviction and one misdemeanor child support conviction. Margaret keeps him in jail and sends a new felony child support case up to circuit court to be prosecuted by the commonwealth attorney's office--the same office that has trained Jessica Roberts. Now this guy owes something like 10k or 15k in child support. He gets indicted. Then POOF! The commonwealth attorney's office--the same office that gave Jessica Roberts her "extensive experience in prosecution"--gives him probation and lets him out of jail. Guess what? The guy is on the run and has not paid a single penny of his child support.
The judge issues probation...not the CA
