Katherine Benefield, candidate for the Hamilton County School Board, District 1, is hosting a “God Bless America” Rally on July 15 at the Soddy Daisy Veterans’ Park, 9000 block of Dayton Pike. The event is free.
Her co-hosts are County Assessor Candidate Jelena Butler and State Senate District 10 candidate Andrae McGary.

House District 27 Frank Eaton, House District 30 candidate Sandy Smith, Tn. Congressional District 3 candidate Mary Headrick and Congressional District 3 candidate Bill Taylor.
