    Bill Fletcher seems to know allot of the who's who of Walton County...including Bill Eddins Jr. (School board) Rhonda Skipper, Danny Glidewell. Don Gaetz, Cindy Meadows, Sheriff Adkinson, Kim Kirby (School Board) Suzanne Harris, Robert Nelson (Ugh!) Andrew Campanella, Trey Nick (Nicks Seafood) Cory Godwin.

    I'm sure there are also others people will recognize that aren't familiar to me. Bill Fletcher did share a photo of Melanie Nipper on his page so I think it's safe to assume they support one another.

    It appears Mike Huckabee and his wife want Imfield off the BCC supporting Melanie Nipper. And here is a name I haven't seen or heard of or from in eons...Herman Walker (Ex-BCC)

    This campaign is getting weirder by the minute.
    Who will surface from the past next?

    As far as "Our Generation," Bill Fletcher, if you could share where you sent your photos and bio information that might help us figure out who these people are and what their agenda is for Walton County.

    Well if you knew nothing about it Bill let me give you some insight into the "gift" you received. That mailer on your behalf probably cost about $15,000. It appears it was mailed to all Walton County Property Owners ( about 50,000 pieces) not just "Voters". I received a call from some part-time residents that live on my street today. They are not registered voters in Walton County. They are registered to vote in Ga.. I then called 2 other out of town property owners in Alabama & Tennessee and they got the two mailers as well

    Someone likes you !!!! Not sure who that might be.

    In 2008 I founded Huck PAC to promote conservative principles and help elect conservative candidates at every level of government. I believe that America is at a crossroads, and the choices we make in the coming years will determine the future of our country for generations.— Mike Huckabee

    Wonder why he stayed out of the D5 race? Or has he?
    Bob Hudson, I see you did mailer preparation for Mr Fletcher.
    Also I did not get anything from Nipper or Fletcher.
    Anyone know who Mr Huckabee is supporting in the District 1 US Congress race?

    He means Christian principles. This is the guy deathly afraid of Sharia law.

    I want to know the real agenda behind this campaign. If we are supporting Christian principles, wouldn't John Dixon, a Christian Minister have been the obvious choice? Are we saying that Mr.'s Chapman, Kramer and Imfeld are not Christians or do not support Christian principles? Why no endorsement in District 5? Are we saying both support Christian principles or neither? Or is there another issue that is being promoted here that is not apparent by the mailers? Also, every organization that ever endorsed me or considered it wanted a meeting and a discussion of the issues. Did this happen and were all the candidates considered? If there were discussions of issues, what were those issues? $30,000 in expenditures is a lot of money to spend and I want to know what is going on and who is behind it.

    No I didn't prepare a mailer for him I removed a background from a picture for him.

    Perhaps these two candidates know about the corrupt practices in Walton and maybe they'll join together and do something about it.

    Religion and politics makes for strange bedfellows. I don't care what religion you are it has no place in politics.

    I think there is another agenda being promoted here.
