Bill Breneman For East Ridge City Council

Thursday, October 7, 2010

In considering candidates for the East Ridge City Council, I would like to suggest that you vote for Bill Breneman. I consider him to be a “New Pioneer for East Ridge” in that he is a forward thinker capable of solving the problems of the past with an innovative eye toward the future.

It’s not enough to be reactive in today’s economy. We need councilmen who will be selflessly loyal, savvy, and proactive in running our city. I believe that Bill Breneman, an “idea man” with a deep love for his chosen hometown, is such a person. His slogan, "Our City, Our Home - Let's Make it Better" says much about the kind of man he is. Mr. Breneman has the imaginative vision, leadership skills, and experience to guide East Ridge and her citizens into a bright future.

Let's band together in making East Ridge a much better place in which to live, work, and play by giving Bill Breneman our collective vote of confidence on November 2nd.

Hillary Or Trump?

I do not accept simply asking myself which candidate would be best for me and my family when deciding which one I will vote for.  That is because I do not believe 100 percent of what either of them says.  Instead, I ask how each will go about setting policies, reaching goals and making decisions.  Hillary has made it clear that only she has the knowledge and experience ...
