See what others have to say about John Cassell for Sheriff.
We have never messed with voting for anything. Everyone always says the same old song & dance. So to us, it’s always been whoever gets it, gets it and unless you are concerned about safety in schools and are interested in doing something about autism awareness, I’m really not interested.
A friend of ours has been raving about John Cassell and recently introduced him to us. John surprised me. He really wants to make a change and he isn’t just saying things to win people over.
His priorities include helping people with addictions, safety in the schools, and autism awareness.
John Cassell is the one that pushed and demanded to know why Henry County didn’t have the life-saving antidote for overdosing while Perry said they didn’t know how to carry it. Now it’s in place because John pushed for it and he isn’t even Sheriff yet!
Open your eyes and hearts! Vote John Cassell for Sheriff.
After listening to the interview on Star News, John Cassell you have hit the nail on the head! Everything you have talked about is correct! The People of Henry County know this so this is the time to make that change! Everything that happens in Henry County you better believe there is a reason for it and for it to benefit certain people! It is time for the Good Ole’ Boy’s Network to disburse! We need a trustworthy sheriff and department!
Please stay true to yourself and you will win! Everyone in Henry County knows we need this and it has been a long time coming!
Henry County citizens, we can make this happen and make our community a better place to live and one to be proud of!
Please remember to vote November 5th for John Cassell!
To the Great Citizens of Henry County:
I would like to take this opportunity to endorse John Cassell for Sheriff of Henry County. I spent more than 25+ years working at the Henry County Sheriff’s Office. I retired as a Sergeant with many job responsibilities.
I had the privilege of getting to know John when he worked at Memorial Hospital as a Security Officer years ago. He impressed me, then, as one of the most professional and caring Security Officers I had ever met. John and I quickly became friends and have remained friends to this day. I think what impressed me most about John was that he treated everyone with respect. Even those that gave us a rough time in the ER. He never lost his cool.
Later on, John became a law enforcement officer. That was when he showed what he was really made of. He constantly trained to make himself better. He respected his fellow officers and was always willing to go above and beyond. And he started using that training to teach others. He is one of the best Self-Defense Instructors around. He constantly volunteered his personal time to teach self-defense courses to fellow officers, as well as, the citizens of Henry County. He developed and instructed one of the best women’s self-defense classes ever taught. Just ask any of his students.
At times, I was John’s supervisor, when his regular supervisor was off. He respected me and never complained about an assignment. I was also a Tactical Team supervisor and had the privilege of working with John on a lot of tactical situations. With John there, you knew he had your back regardless of what might happen. There again, his personal training was priceless.
Few people know that John was selected and cleared through a top-secret security clearance to work overseas (Afghanistan) as a State Department Contractor as a Designated Defensive Marksman (aka. Sniper) and as a Protective Security Specialist assigned to an Emergency Response Team. He left his family and put his life on the line to do this not only because of his dedication to his career choice but to help make an impact on a war’s outcome. That experience cannot be duplicated.
I would ask the Citizens of Henry County to compare this to exactly what Sheriff Perry truly brings to the table. Lane is a nice man. He’s never served our Great Country in the Armed Forces. He became Sheriff by happenstance. He was next in line when everything at the Sheriff’s Office was turned upside down in 2006. He was later elected Sheriff in a Special Election. I have to say that when Lane was questioned about certain comments and acts that he said and did and that he bragged about in the past before he became Sheriff , he falsely denied those comments and actions. I don’t say this lightly because I personally heard him admit and brag about these things. One thing he was very proud of was how many cats he had shot and disposed of. Lane attended Sniper School in Texas and upon his return, he would brag about his expertise in shooting cats that got on his cars. Please, don’t take my word for this, ask others that worked with him. He will probably say I am a disgruntled employee. But the truth is Lane worked for me in Investigation, I never worked for him as a Sheriff. I left in good standing before that. Lane was raised to Captain, which placed him next in line when the Sheriff and Major James Keaton we’re arrested. Lane became Captain when then Major Kimmy Nester had his downfall from grace due to a hidden tryst. If you will remember he was being groomed for the Sheriff’s job. Everyone thought he was the one. But …… Lane has made the comment that he will become a Preacher when he retires. I’m not sure if the Good Lord wants a hypocrite to preach his word. Again , please investigate this for yourselves. The Citizens of Henry County have been deceived long enough.
Please bring honor and true integrity back to the Sheriff’s Office, as it had under Sheriff James Rodgers, vote John Cassell a true and trusted man for Sheriff of Henry County!
I’ve only known/worked with you for a few short months. If there is anyone else in this race for Sheriff, that has more morals or character than you, then I’d like to meet that person. You are “Top Notch.” I only wished you were running for Sheriff in Franklin County..we need a law enforcement officer here instead of a politician. Best of luck to you Sir.I know you are the best man for this job. You actually care about the people of Martinsville and Henry County. I have all my friends voting for you and I know you got this. It’s time for a real change!

Is Henry County looking for a politician to be a sheriff or are they looking for a sheriff that is more concerned about making Henry County a better place and safer place to live and raise a family? Henry County is overdue a sheriff that cares more about the people and the county than about making himself look good. John Cassell is that man!! He is a fair man who cares about the people in and around the county and about making it a safe place for our kids and grandkids to grow up and a safe place for us to live. John, I wholeheartedly believe in you …for 12 years Henry County has had a politician posing as a sheriff … I for one believe it’s time to put a real sheriff in office …it’s time for a change !!!
John Cassell for Sheriff 2019
Hello everyone, I am here to show my support and endorse John Cassell for Sheriff. I am not here to tell you things good or bad, all I ask is that if you have questions or concerns do not be afraid to ask questions or voice your concerns. I will be glad to speak to anyone and I know John would be glad to address any concerns as well. It’s time for a change, and if you would like to make Henry County a better place to live then vote John Cassell for Sheriff.
“Progress is impossible without change.”
John is centered on so many critical issues in our community and surrounding neighbors in Martinsville. He has sound, common sense ideas to upgrade school safety and to address the opioid crisis we are facing. I strongly endorse John for Sheriff and invite you to get to know him and you will
I first had the privilege of meeting Mr. Cassell when he joined our team in Kabul, Afghanistan working as a security contractor for the Department of State. If I lived in Henry County, I would certainly vote for John Cassell to be my county’s sheriff. He has shown to be a man of integrity, immense patience, and trustworthiness. He has exemplified to me all the attributes that someone holding an office should have. He is loving, caring, sympathetic, kind, firm, and fair. He can be stern when the situation or circumstance calls for that kind of approach. Mr. Cassell operated on our Emergency Reaction Team as a Designated Defensive Marksman, I trust this man with my life and have already done so. Mr. Cassell brought an extensive knowledge of Law Enforcement that aided in our security operations. I know Mr. Cassell to be a dedicated husband and father. I have nothing but respect for this man of honor. I believe Henry county would be lucky and privileged to have a man of this caliber be their Sheriff.
Henry County is needing a change, we need a new set of eyes on this area. John has lived here most of his life with his military & years of law enforcement training I have no doubt he can lead a team to take us to the next level. We
Long overdue for a change and you’re just the man that can make that happen!
Look out Henry County, come 2019 there’s going to be a new sheriff in town.
