Re-Elect Bill Wallace - And Response

Monday, October 15, 2012

We are writing in support of our friend, Bill Wallace for re-election to the Signal Mountain Town Council. We have known Bill since Paul served with him on the MACC Board when Bill was chairman.  

Bill and his wife, Cissy are faithful and active members of our church, St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church.  Bill’s professional background in communications and business as a television news director has prepared him well for the Council.

For the past two years Bill has served our town as an independent voice, listening to all of our town’s citizens and voting his conscience. He supports what is best for all the citizens of Signal Mountain. He opposed last year’s unnecessary property tax increase. He supports keeping Signal Mountain’s Parks in the hands of the citizens of Signal Mountain. He has increased availability of financial information on the town’s website so citizens can be better informed. He opposed a pay raise for the town manager which was out of proportion to the rest of the town employees pay raises.  

His philosophy is politically and fiscally conservative, but he believes in good government and knows that the citizens of our town support high quality, efficient services. His knowledge of our town is impressive.  

We urge all citizens to vote for Bill Wallace for re-election to the Town Council.

Paul and Snoda Hendricks

We urge everyone to re-elect Bill Wallace to the Signal Mountain Town Council. Bill’s love of our community should be obvious to everyone who knows him. He is a sane voice on the Town Council who votes for what he feels is best for our community and not what other council members want for their own agenda.  

Bill and his wife, Cissy, have lived on Signal Mountain for 28 years and been active in the business life of the community having achieved national recognition for their professionalism.  Bill is an active volunteer in both the community as well as his church. 

Signal Mountain needs Bill Wallace on the Town Council. Actually, the town needs several Council members like Bill Wallace.

Senator David Perdue: I Have Heard Every Excuse Under The Sun

Here we go again. For the 19th consecutive year, Washington has not funded the federal government on time. As the current continuing resolution is expiring in the midnight hour, Congress is once again trying to pass a temporary fix three months after the beginning of the current fiscal year. This is ridiculous. In fact, Congress has only completed the full budget process four ... (click for more)

Silence From Rhonda Thurman

I find it deplorable that Rhonda Thurman is, once again, voicing her opinions so quickly and so vehemently.  She seems to be the one school board member that wants media and/or press coverage every time the opportunity avails itself.  However, when it comes to responding to personal emails sent directly to her…she zips her lips. I, as all of the citizens of Hamilton ... (click for more)
