Gene why you so worried?
Because he knows he is fixing to get beat, he is a liberal yellow dog democrat. He can feel it slipping away from him. At 78 years old and after 12 years in office (even though he told everyone in 2006 he only wanted for one term) he knows he no longer has the support he once had. Maybe he needs to ride around in that county tahoe and hand out more t-shirts, he started you had to buy a thirty now I think he is giving them away. I bet he want be at rec center after he loses.
Lots of the sheriffs are dirty they just don’t want anybody to know about how they are skimming money as fast as sucking milk from a cows tit.
Gene done sucked the sheriffs office tit dry. How much money you say you took? He’s right up there with Morgan and Etowah sheriffs. More money they get the more they want.
Lawrence county has always had to be frugal with our money but if you go back and look since he came in the picture there has been nothing but turmoil with administrators and the money has sure enough been screwed up and the books so out of wack you can't even get a proper audit. Just think about it.
Something to think about, from 1986 till mid 2007 we had two county administrators. That's 2 in 21 years. Since gene came here and started basically running the county commission office we have had what is this our 6th or 7 administrator in 12 years. So 2 in 21 years and now 7 in 12 years, what's wrong with that picture. He is micro managing the commission office, the 7 don't even average 2 years per administrator. This is bigger than folks realize.
I guess this is some more of Gene Mitchells strong leadership he is trying to sell this election cycle. Sounds like to me he doesn't know what is going on, maybe it is time for someone new to have a chance. How the hell do you hire someone who has been involved with a crime with boys Gene? What the hell is going on up there,
Gene you got your chief deputy colonel kenneth mitchell (brother) making over $20 an hour and what the hell is he doing, why is he letting all this get by? Can you not get his ass off solitaire and get a little bit of work out of him for all that it is costing this county not counting the overtime and extra holiday overtime he is costing us. Gene have you lost control of the sheriff's office? Maybe at 78 you have served long enough and it is time for someone else to have an opportunity. I mean you did say you only wanted one term.
As much as sheriff and kenneth is on LETS it is surprising this sex offender got by them, guess he wasn't as a important of a serch as say A Gillespie , right SHERIFF? Been on that let's lately or do you just get someone else to do your dirty work for you?
Folks just hit the mother load: this sex offender who was called a sexual predator by law enforcement in another county was highly recommended for employment by non other than the chief deputy himself the high colonel kenneth mitchell, the sheriff's brother. They were going to church together in Cullman county, kenneth said at the time of his employment that this so called sexual preditor was a good boy and he ain't ever done nothing wrong. Oh my goodness, this stuff is off the chain. Reports are he liked little boys and kissing their feet.
Folks this person was hired by kenneth himself and he did not do any kind of background check, asked applicant why he left his job and applicant said they was picking on me and he said ok, did no follow up or background check, did not run him thru the law enforcement systems. This should be grounds for termination of the chief deputy brother or not.
Has kenneth mitchell ever done anything without screwing it up? This was a major screw up and sheriff done nothing just like he done nothing with his other brother when he was sound asleep in the middle of the day in the courthouse. No leadership at lcsd.
Yeah the only time he issues out punishment is when it is political. And he needs to do it to help himself politically.
Ole Deputy Toe Licker! Remember him!
This deputy toe licker they are talking about.
Reading the article and comments asking how this happens, it is when you do not post openings or applicant drives in a public manner. Job openings are not posted on department website, social media sites or in the local paper. Applicants are chosen after being referee by someone or has a relationship with an employee or something like that, nk one in the county other than a handful even know there is an opening to apply for. This leads to only certain ones even having an opportunity to apply which is why minorities basicly have no chance of gaining employment with this department.
Well I see OLD gene and his illegal reserve deputy who is in clear violation of APOSTC rules and regulations and puts the county in immense liability are now declaring sign wars, sign wars, sign wars! Someone is messing with the illegal signs that gene broke the law putting out on the right of way. Quit breaking the law SHERIFF and you want have this problem but we now it's not true just an Old campaign tactic when you got nothing else, go home!
What happened gene, you dig for two months and couldn't come up with anything negative and out of desperation you resorted to OLD tactic you have used in every campaign since 2006 and accuse your opponent of messing with your illegal signs you broke the law again putting on right of way?
Yeah I remember when he accused Bryan hill in 2006 of stealing thousands of signs and they were found in Forrest. More yellow dog democrat liberal fake news! He has accused keith Ligon of this for three elections, lol. So weak, he has no campaign, he's losing so he has to go negative and attack Max. All max is doing is working circles around him. Panic mode has kicked in.
Knew this was coming just didn't know when, happens every election, have to try and paint your opponent in a negative light because you have no vision or ideas. Tez told us in a facebook post about 6 months ago sign war coming. Funny how they can predict the future, not hard when you make it all up and do it every single election.
I messaged a friend who is a mitchell supporter after I seen the "signgate" post and asked why are they attacking max with this silly crap when they know it is a lie and he said well they attacking him on whistleblower I said but what on whistleblowerS true, it's what he said, it's his words.
The master minupulator is at it again! CaMera are set up and ready to go. I seen an ad from 2006 when GM accused Bryan hill of stealing and destroying over a thousand signs in one week, that's right folks over a thousand, that's a lot of signs Esp in a week, there was only one problem in the picture on his website and ad of the area where the signs were recovered there was only one sign in the picture, that's right thousands gone but only ONE in photo. Not a pile of signs, just one so based on that and how he has tried this tired OLD trick on every opponent he has faced I believe I'm going to have to call foul on #signgate and #signwar. Hehehehehe. Gene we know your tired on montgomery tricks now, that's why Max is going to beat you and in your heart you know it too. So get on Facebook and declare sign war on your illegal law breaking signs.
Because it was all a damn lie. Gene is lying like hell because he is getting his ass beat!
With the lawrence county sheriff's department becoming stagnant the way it has and gene mitchell has been there for 3 terms and he is in his late 70's, that would put over 80 if elected to another term. Isn't it time for some new ideas and new blood in the sheriff's dept. I mean 3 terms and 80 yrs I think is a little much.
