Queen Needs No Padding
There are many factors that place Billy Queen apart from all the other GOP candidates for sheriff of Guilford County, but the one that matters most to me is – he doesn’t have to pad his resume.
Billy has worked at all levels of law enforcement, including management positions, from local to federal. He is an internationally recognized expert on criminal gangs, he is a sought after speaker at law enforcement seminars and conferences, and he is a published author of non-fiction books on law enforcement.
Everyone else is attempting to justify their candidacy by claiming that mid-level management positions, or stagnated careers, provide the broad experience that is needed to return the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department to a first-rate level. We need a department we can be proud of, and which will provide the level of protection and experience that county residents deserve.
The only person on the May 17, 2022 GOP primary ballot who can honestly say they possess the qualifications to do the job is Billy Queen. He gets my vote.
Absolutely correct, Mam. He has my vote and I hope a lot more votes from Guilford County voters. And he is a first class gentleman to boot!
Vote Billy Queen for Sheriff. Maybe danny rogers can get hired as the new city Police. We’ve had 5 black chiefs only Brian James is the only one worth mentioning Hire Rogers we can and him to the list of losers
Has Queen ever been in charge of Courthouse security? No
Has Queen ever run a jail or Detention Center? No
Has Queen ever supervised Civil Processes that Sheriff’s deal with? No
He’s been a city cop, a fed ATF agent, but has he ever been a Deputy Sheriff? No
My goodness then, who has? Randy Powers, he has been in law enforcement 50 years Darlene.
He was former Chief Deputy, the number 2 man, in the Office in the former administration.
Ask Randy Powers if he ever left his gun in a restaurant restroom. Ask him if he ever forgot where he parked his Sheriff’s vehicle after a meeting near the Sheriff’s office that he drove too and walked back to the office. Ask Randy Powers about filing for Bankruptcy. Do you want that person to manage over a $70 million budget? The position of the Sheriff is like a CEO (almost 700 employees) Billy Queen helped develop and oversaw the computer system that affected 1200 ATF Agents and over 500 civilian staff all across the United States. He can manage a large Agency. Randy Powers can not. Ask BJ Barnes and others who worked at the Sheriff’s office why he lost the last election. That’s right, Randy Powers was the #2 man and he didn’t do his job. Ask Randy Powers how many Sheriff’s forums he has attended this past year. Do your homework, before you make statements.
Billy Queen gets my vote too. He brings in outside experience on a higher level, than the others who worked in the Department, who never made it the “Elite Agency” in North Carolina as it is the 3rd largest populated County in the state. Crime is rampant, there are almost 100 vacancies, Detention officers are getting seriously injured and nothing is being done to correct the problems. BILLY QUEEN will make a difference. Get out and vote, starting next Thursday, April 28th.
I apologize, but are we looking to replace an IT person or a Sheriff. You spoke about padding… what you’re painting is not even “padding”, I call it “off the rails”. I think the voters can see through this garbage you’re pushing.
I’m afraid that I have very little confidence in the voting aptitude of the average Greensboro voter. The one shot voting that put the self-perceived cowboy in the position was a big clue. No one does due diligence and the mess in which Greensboro finds itself is just a microcosm of how this country has been degraded. Never, ever, overestimate the intelligence of the average Greensboro, or American, voter.
