Scottie Mayfield Has Better Experience Than Any Other Candidate

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I believe Scottie Mayfield is the absolute best candidate to be the Congressman in the Third District of Tennessee. It isn't even comparable to stand him up against the other candidates. 

We really have someone who knows how to lead and create jobs. While he was at Mayfield Dairy, he didn't just "inherit" his position. He rose from the very bottom all the way to president. He also created jobs while he was the president, nearly triple as many as when he left to run for Congress.

Here is a man who has no other reason to run for Congress but to serve those in East Tennessee. It is very clear that our current member of Congress, who is a lawyer, wants to be a politician. He has voted "no" on everything. He has no vision and calls his previous law firm a "small business." That is exactly what I would expect a politician to say. Weston is a good guy, but he just doesn't have the experience. 

Scottie Mayfield has that experience and he also has a proven record. He is a family man who understands traditional values and wants to protect those. He is a preacher at his church and has been married to his wife Lisa for many years. He is a man of great character and great integrity.

Help me say no to "politicians" and yes to a man that has 40 years of business experience and a proven record of creating jobs. Vote Scottie Mayfield Aug. 2.

Attorney Says Lacie Stone, Advisor To Mayor Berke, Is Victim, Not Instigator

The attorney for advisor to Mayor Andy Berke Lacie Stone said she has been thrust into the spotlight, but said she is "the victim of an unprovoked attack" by her husband, Bobby Stone. Attorney John Cavett said it is ridiculous "to suggest that she was the perpetrator." Mr. Stone is facing charges of domestic assault and vandalism. Attorney Cavett said, "It is unfortunate ...
