The fight is on! 3 candidates will battle it out in a Jacksonville Chambers of Commerce forum set for Wednesday, April 11 in downtown Jacksonville.

(R) Incumbent Hans Miller, (R) Candidate Boyd Brown and (R) Candidate Walter Scott all will come face-to-face Wednesday in front of the city of Jacksonville to give the (community) a more in-depth look at the candidates.

Republican Sheriff Candidate, Walter Scott

We have not heard much from candidate Walter Scott. We wouldn’t know if he’s dead or alive because he’s been so quiet. Don’t know how he think’s he’ll be able to get (A) vote in May.

Incumbent Republican Sheriff Hans Miller

When you’re in the voting booth this May, remember Mariah Woods. The 3-year-old that was taken from her home and murdered and how Sheriff Hans Miller refused to thoroughly investigate her mother’s role in her death to the point that no evidence was presented to the District Attorney to charge, Kristy Kay Hunter.

One of Jacksonville’s most respected Civic Leaders, Al Burgess took to his Facebook earlier last week and denounced his vote for Hans Miller this election in May.


Republican Sheriff Candidate, Boyd Brown

Many in Onslow County have voiced that Boyd Brown is the man for the job. May 8, will tell who is the most qualified candidate when the citizens of Onslow County cast their vote.

The Jacksonville Onslow Chambers of Commerce is not a political organization and does not promote any specific candidate, according to President Laurette Leagon. The questions the candidates will be asked are prepared by the chamber members and the public. The candidates do not know the questions beforehand, according to Leagon.

People that are attending the forum have an oppurtunity to write questions down to give to the moderator but there’s no guarantee that the question will be asked.

Each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer each question asked of them and two minutes for closing remarks.

The forum for the Onslow County sheriff candidatesHans Miller, Boyd Brown, and Walter Scottwill be held at 5:30 p.m. April 11 at Jacksonville City Hall, located at 815 New Bridge St.

Anyone who would like to submit a question for the forum is asked to email their question to before the close of business on Tuesday.
