I’m a student at UTC and have had the privilege and honor of having Dr. Wilson, not only as a teacher, but also as an academic advisor at the University. I honestly believe he is the most qualified candidate in the race for Hamilton County mayor. He has worked at the University for 41 years, was head of the Election Commission for eight years, and has worked as a contractor.
Like the rest of the country, Hamilton County has a spending problem that needs to be addressed.
Dr. Wilson’s plan to cut duplicated services will save hard-working taxpayers money and prevent future tax increases.
Dr. Wilson stated in an earlier debate that he would refuse to accept a pay raise if offered, and then told the story of how he actually lived by example and refused a pay raise when he worked for the Election Commission. Dr. Wilson is an honest man and practices what he preaches. Having the county’s best interests at heart, and with his fiscally conservative attitude, he would represent us well. Instead of electing someone just looking for a check, we need to elect somebody that will look out for our future, someone like Dr. Richard Wilson.
