Today has been an interesting day. I had posted on Kelvin Williams Facebook page five questions for him to answer. Those questions were quickly removed. Why did he remove them? Because he did not want to answer them. How come? Because he does not want to answer tough questions. Since that removal, I was personally attacked by one of his “narcotics” investigators (See the images gallery below). This person wrote a lengthy summary of personal attacks and attempted to scare me with an “attorney” and then ended it with calling me a “coward.” This is a representative of Sheriff Kelvin Williams. Apparently, Kelvin wants to dodge the questions and not answer up to important ones. After I reminded this first investigator of the First Amendment allowing me to ask questions of any political figure, he quickly turned it into “I was simply introducing myself.” I’m sure Sheriff Williams taught him well.
The other two deputies decided to get involved and play the scare tactics as well. The Captain of the SWAT team himself, the SWAT Team that does not exist in Bolivar County, who refused to answer the questions himself about this matter, then dodges the other question I posed to him regarding a personal posting on his Facebook page that truly is an abhorrent image. He quickly took down all his responses, including all the other investigators and deputies on the Facebook page and yet I copied all their responses. You be the judge of this. And, this person also changed his Facebook avatar to something else in an attempt to change his identity and inform everyone of his “passion” for Sheriff Williams. Now, he is taking a break until after the election. Here are the persons responsible below in the images from the Facebook postings they put on my Facebook page and then removed them quickly. It would seem that Bolivar County Investigators play more online than they do investigating crimes in our county. They also make sick remarks and attack citizens who ask questions. Kelvin Williams has more to answer to than any other candidate because he is the sheriff and needs to answer up to them. We have witnessed today these deputies attack in the name of Kelvin Williams and will apparently continue to do so. Transparency is not in this office and clearly these questions I have asked are good ones, respectful ones, and very important ones. They have all been met with violent responses that were meant to attempt to scare me with their positions. Why does Kelvin Williams run from them and use his deputies to respond to anyone who asks tough questions? What else would these peace officers be capable of doing? You be the judge.
We have the opportunity to make a difference on Tuesday. We have the opportunity to vote for someone with experience and true leadership. Let’s not vote for someone with no experience; no plan; and no vision for Bolivar County. Kelvin Williams has no plan; no website; no plan of action; and no information about his next four years. Why vote for another four years to correct the last four years. There are people who are high in the community and are supporting Kelvin Williams because their children are causing trouble and are able to get out of trouble by not being arrested. This is not right because what about everyone else in the county? Favoritism should not cloud the judgement of the law. Picking and choosing who to arrest and who not to arrest based upon their affiliation with the Sheriff is a tragedy. This needs to end.
We now have a fantastic opportunity to have a new sheriff in office that will uphold the law; bring into the office a wealth of training and experience; executive leadership; morals; honesty; and a willingness to get things done for the better of our county. This person is Chief Anthony Gibson. He has a website, and on this website he has his plan spelled out and has never changed it. It is a road map for a better Bolivar County Sheriff’s Office. Please do not allow for your vote to not count by not voting on Tuesday. Your vote for Anthony Gibson will be a better vote; and a vote for change. Let’s make sure we have a new sheriff-elect after Tuesday, November 3rd.
The Election is two weeks away. This is a very important election and we must not let this opportunity pass us by to elect the best candidate for Sheriff of Bolivar County.
Every citizen can vote for any candidate of their choice. You do not have to vote for your party. You can vote for anyone. If you are a Democrat, you can vote for a Republican, Independent, or a Democrat. If you are a Republican, you can vote for a Democrat, Independent, or a Republican.
The point here is this; it does not matter what party you belong to; what matters is who YOU decide to vote for. Vote the person; not the party. Vote your choice this November 3rd.
