WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– A campaign flier for a New Hanover County Sheriff candidate is raising some eyebrows.

Ed McMahon’s campaign office stated he graduated from Hoggard High School in 1987. Problem is, McMahon graduated from high school in Massachusetts.

He says that he proofread the document and tried to correct it, calling this all an honest mistake.

“It’s incorrect and I apologize for that. When I checked everything and proofed it, it was correct. My wife was born and raised here, and I was not, and I’ve never, ever indicated I was,” stated McMahon.

McMahon said today was the first time he had seen the fliers since sending in his corrections.

Election Day is one week from today.

I see the Whispering Committee has, once again, reared it’s ugly head. Six years ago, we were “hearing this” and “hearing that”, about the WPD. Now, I guess, all the rumors are being aimed at Sheriff McMahon.

How dare the Sheriff try to keep the overtime budget down. In order to save tax dollars.

I’ll complain about something as stupid as this too! How much will you pay me? I’ll do it all night long! This is important stuff! Who’d you learn this petty stuff from – Obama? Clinton?

You’re just sad and pathetic. You exemplify what is wrong with society. You’re not trying to make New Hanover better, you just want to stick your fingers back in because you can’t control McMahon. So you run your mouth, make accusations, and offer NOTHING to the community. I can’t believe this is actually news. Something as completely stupid as this.

Some of you are unbelievable. Either you are Ed’s buddies or kool aid drinkers, the issue is not what school he went to. The issue is that the chief law enforcement officer in the county has been caught in a lie. This wasn’t a typo. This is an entire line that he wrote in there, knowing it was false. Many people in this county don’t know where he is from so many of them would see Hoggard High School on it and assume he was from here. It was a calculated gamble that could gain votes. He also says on the mailer that he “has deputies in elementary schools”. Well, by his definition there have been deputies in them under the last three sheriffs. There are 25 elementary schools and 2 preschools in this county covered by 3 deputies. These 3 deputies are also designated as Dare and Great instructors. So not only are they trying to cover 27 schools they also have to teach classes. More smoke and mirrors. He finally admitted to the Port City Daily that he did not have SRO’s in every school, yet he is satisfied that all the kids are safe and secure. As a parent, that is not acceptable. You need to wake up and start thinking for yourselves. Stop bashing the other candidates and look at the facts for yourself. If you vote for McMahon you will get exactly what you deserve. I just hope no one gets hurt.
