Coptix Employees Back Ann Coulter

Friday, April 8, 2005

It is with a great deal of pleasure
that our company, Coptix, Inc., has come out in unanimous support of Ann Coulter for mayor.

As natives and residents of the historic St. Elmo neighborhood in
Chattanooga, we believe that Mrs. Coulter’s "Healthy Neighbors, Healthy
Neighborhoods" initiative will best support the mission and values of
our fair community for the coming four years. As members of Chattanooga’s young and thriving technology and entrepreneurial community, we believe that Mrs. Coulter is the candidate best positioned to support small business and high tech jobs in the area.

Our employees are a motley bunch: highly talented individuals whose
faiths, genders, experience and cultural commitments diverge and
intersect in a way that helps to make us uniquely competent of serve
customers needing custom software and web-based solutions. The fact that we are united on a political choice is remarkable, and speaks well for the remarkable Mrs. Coulter.

See you at the polls on Tuesday.
