01:07:38 what happened? Was there an "accident"? When was the last time Cherokee County called Gilmer for support/help? The issue here boils down to one thing. Our sheriff is not a law enforcement officer, he is a politician. Toot Toot Toot on his horn for "all that he has done", yet most are state mandated, state funded, or had little to do with him. Smoke and mirrors, a true politician. This interview makes me want to join the Tea Party, it is a perfect marketing tool for them.

As Leon Davenport's campaign "manager," It would be expected that you didn't like Sheriff Nicholson's interview. But, to ease your mind, GCSO SWAT team was sent to Cherokee at their request on 10-2-2011 to assist them in searching for individuals who had attempted to ambush and shoot a State Trooper. Just as the Sheriff said in his interview, he doesn't make statements he can't prove. The other candidates should try this. As far as "state funded" ANYTHING...your candidate should be informed that the state isn't funding much of anything anymore. Services that the state used to provide are now being cut and the counties are being charged for them.
