Political Season: Gerald Webb Opens Judge Campaign

Saturday, March 4, 2006

Gerald Webb Jr. kicked off his City Court Judge campaign on Thursday at the Bessie Smith Hall.

With a crowd of over 250 on hand, he talked about the need for his campaign to reflect the face of Chattanooga.

The candidate said, “There are Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and Independents here. Blacks, Whites, Indians, Hispanics, the young and seniors, men and women, white collar and blue collar workers, retirees and neighborhood activists are here, and that’s just the way this campaign should be.”

He also said that he planned to run "one of the most diverse, broad-based campaigns this city has ever seen." He said he will campaign over the entire city.

Mr. Webb said he "wants to diligently work in the neighborhoods and different communities to increase the standard of living by helping to ensure that people have safe and desirable neighborhoods in which to live."

His treasurer, Jimmy Anderson, said, “We are very pleased with the broad base of support shown in the crowd of people who were here on Thursday. Gerald has support over the entire city.”

Twenty candidates and elected officials from Chattanooga and Hamilton County also attended.

Gerald Webb Jr. is a native Chattanoogan and graduate of Chattanooga’s public schools. He graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Alabama.

He is married to Angela Saddler-Webb, a child abuse investigator, and they are the parents of two daughters with a son to be born this month. Mr. Webb is also a prosecutor in the Hamilton County District Attorney’s office.

The official campaign website is webbforjudge.com.
