I've had the privilege of being acquainted with Greg Vital for the past three years. As a former Collegedale resident andstudent at Southern Adventist University - I saw first-hand the deep personal interest Mr. Vital has for his community.
From mentoring individual students, to serving onnumerous boards and committees, to generously supporting Southern's Service Learning Initiative (a community service and career building program) Greg Vital has made a difference in the lives of young people.
But it's not just young people that Mr. Vital has impacted. He cares about community members of every age. His passion for ensuring that elderly community members have a high quality of life has driven him to develop some of the finest assisted living programs and senior care facilities in the nation.
Mr. Vital is an intelligent, energetic, and compassionate leader. I strongly support his decision to run for office and I hope that you will do the same.

It is with confidence I commend the character of Greg Vital. I thought it appropriate in light of recent press coverage to personally write about Southern Adventist University’s former star student and long-time supporter.
It is without the need for special recognition or publicity that Greg Vital has supported the university’s Service Learning Center which builds job skills and develops civic responsibility in students while helping Hamilton County.
Greg is a part of our family at Southern Adventist University and we are proud of him and thankful for his past and continued support of the university and our community.

I have known Greg Vital since 1976. He rented from me while attending Southern Missionary College (Southern AdventistUniversity). Greg was an outstanding young man who paid his rent on time and was always kind and courteous to us. I have watched him serve as a Collegedale City Commissioner and a business man committed to the area.
Years later my husband and I moved into Morning Pointe and recently into a cottage in Greenbriar Cove which Greg developed.
I am 90 years old now. I think Greg would make a wonderful state senator and fully endorse him in this venture.
