Is Gene or isn't he

Blogger Comments:  From the looks of things some of the folks in Lawrence County are not happy with their sheriff.  We received this information from Lawrence County contacts.  Take care of the home base first Gene.  You may have let one of your local politicians down just when he needed you most. 

Only democrat in the picture and only democratic candidate to attend the $250.00 per plate fundraiser. 



Gene is under heavy criticism after attending a Republican fundraiser Thursday night for SOS John Merrill at $250.00 per plate, he and Tez both went. At the same time Mr. Kenneth Brackins a Democrat running for state rep. district 7 was having a $25 per plate fundraiser.  Gene stayed at the Republican fundraiser and did not get to the democratic party fundraiser till it was almost over and most were gone, he did not eat at Mr. Brackins gathering. The democratic party is very upset that he choose the Republicans over Democrats and he is a democratic nominee. Also considering his issues with minority employment etc. Mr. Brackins is a minority. Gene also did not attend the democratic party kick off before the June primary when former Gov. Don Siegleman and his son who is running for Attorney General was here, but they are Democrats. 


From Gene facebook page:
I wrote this after carefully considering and listening to the buildup of rumors that are rumbling. It is sad to live in such a glass house with so many people with their pockets filled with rocks...ready to hurl them in a flurry. I am reminded of one of my Papa's teachings. He always said, "If you think your neighbor's laundry is dingy hanging on the line, wash your windows and look again." The young folks will not understand this teaching but us older ones will. Perhaps you can teach your children today.....Good day and God bless. Tez  


From Montez facebook page:
The ugly political year is upon us. This is the year that turns friends into enemies, family into foe and a good name sometimes must be defended. I hate it. We have two strong political parties in Lawrence County as it should be. Good people in both parties. Our founding fathers had the foresight to know we needed this form of government. Some people argue that we should all be one...well I agree to a point...we should all be AMERICANS. Do what is RIGHT. As a sitting Sheriff of this county for the last 11 years my husband has been a Sheriff to all the people. He doesn't ask you what party you are affiliated with or if you voted for him when you call for help. He is duty bound to serve all the people of Lawrence County. We have taken some fire for representing Lawrence County this week when our Secretary of State John Merrill came into town. John and his wife are personal friends of ours. It matters not what ticket he runs on, we are still friends. We do not endorse his candidacy nor donate to. When other elected State officials have come to our county we have welcomed them as well and we are always ready to show our County off. Just because this is an election year people get ugly and hurtful. We will continue to hold ourselves as professionals and try to dignify the position we hold. Gene Mitchell ..A Sheriff for all the people. God bless us all my friends.

  1. Gene, no one is throwing rocks at your glass house. You keep trying to blame others for your faults. It is not dirty politics to question your effectiveness as sheriff or to question you to explain the discrepiencies in previous comments YOU made not us. For example I will not keep jail food money, I will only serve one term and I will not hire my brothers. Asking you to explain these lies is not mud slinging or dirty politics, it's someone trying to hold you accountable.

    1. Hold him accountable? Have you ever tried to hold a slime snake, you can't hold that silver tongue devil.

  2. Do what is right, I believe that is from your leviticus group Eugene. Why don't you quit being a cry baby, with all this drama trying to divide this county. You are the one with your Facebook posts that is trying to paint a negative picture to create division and make anyone who dares criticize you the villain. Well I'm going to enlighten you, the reason all of your posts are negative and deviceve is because you have no vision for the sheriff's office. You have no programs to discuss and a department from an administrative stand point that is in shambles. So that leave you no choice but to go negative.

  3. As for the REPUBLICAN fundraiser, there you go again!!! You and you only make a decision to go to a republican fundraiser instead of a democratic fundraiser and it's our fault. It becomes public, the Democrats and minority community is furious that you choose a white Montgomery REPUBLICAN over Mr. Brackins and you blame us as if we did something wrong. You say things and do things that blow up on you and you try and deflect it to your opponents. Everything on this blog is your fault. Your words and your actions. Don't make promises you don't intend to keep, don't go to republican fundraisers while neglecting the Democrats and you might have these issues.

    1. As for not giving any money, well no one knows who gave who what. But it's not about the money a fundraiser is a fundraiser, by your presence as the only democrat or elected democrat it is interpreted that you are endorsing the REPUBLICAN. You are the democratic nominee and attending public republican fundraisers is a slap in the face to the Democrats which I think you are intentionally taking for granted. I would encourage the Democrats and Mr brackins supporters to take a long hard look at the candidate who spun them to go spend the evening with a house full of republicans instead of the Democrats at Mr brackins event. So sad!

  4. After Max beats gene I guess he can go be John Merill chief of security, get to work with Jason again. Gene can make sure john merill is secure and Jason can write about it. Gene can be back in republican halls of power again.

  5. What the minority communities need to look into is how the minority employees have been treated. Time for a change!

  6. Why do you shy away from all activities that involve minorities, I understand being friends with someone but it was not an official visit was it 6pm-8pm? You had to make a very simple choice, do I support mr brackins and the democratic party or do I support a republican montgomery politician? You choose to support the REPUBLICAN party and turn your back on mr brackins, the democratic party and the minority communities? But at 2 minority employees and 4% minority hiring within the department and no improvement over 12 years who thought you would do any different, certainly not me, you did exactly what I would have expected you to do but I know you.

  9. No one held a gun to your head and made you you go, it was YOUR CHOICE! Don't blame others for how you treated mr brackins or the democrats.

  10. Is this a white black issue? It appears so but not in the context you would think, if anything roles reversed from what one would think, first Max did not WASTE $500 at this fundraiser, guess because he doesn't have jail food money to spend on a campaign, he is having to run a tight budget and not waste money. Continued...

  11. Is this a white / black issue con't: max did not go to the $500 fundraiser and he has spent more time in the minority communities in the last six months than gene mitchell has in last 12 years. Also gene choose to skip the democratic fundraiser which was attended by about 70% minorities or local black residents, instead he choose to attend an all white that's right 100% white republican fundraiser, so you tell me is this a white / black issue? Gene choose to sit down and eat with all white attendees and not local democrats or minorities. Why?

  12. From Montez page: showing off or representing our county? So this had to be done at a $250 per plate republican fundraiser? This could not have been done earlier when SOS Merrill was at the courthouse to meet with judge praytor. Judge praytor a democrat represented and showed off our county superbly in a professional manner at the courthouse during normal business hours, not at a rebulican political fund raiser at 8 pm. You using that silver tongue again leaving out a lot of facts gene mitchell. You need to take a lesson from Judge Mike Praytor a real PROFESSIONAL!!!

    1. There's a difference in being a professional like judge praytor and gene mitchell a political opportunist! Who is not about core values and principles but about votes and votes only.

  15. Tez doing her best Tammy wynett impersonation or hillary Clinton, naw not hillary she is a democrat and they did not support her in 2016. "STAND BY MY MAN"! "We going to hold on"...

    ReplyDelete
  16. You know I had a gut feeling about all this in 2016, if any remembers Tez facebook posts etc during the election she posted stuff that put Hillary in a negative light, I mean she dogged hillary out, of course Harvey Eugene of Leviticus group didn't say a word. Tez job was to deliver the secret message without involving gene.

  17. I think it is time an outside law enforcement with no connections to gene mitchell who can do a thorough investigation into the finances bid procedures and more. I would guess FBI.

  18. The road deputies are the ones suffering right now, running from call to call while 70% percent of sheriff's office works day shift with no defined duties or responsibilities such as sheriffs brother chief deputy kenneth mitchell. Who plays solitaire all dày, the other brother sleeps at the courthouse, poor direction, accountability, and leadership.
