We have two real candidates to be our next mayor in Chattanooga. One is heavily funded, old school politics, and refuses to tell anyone what he plans to do or where he stands on any issue. That would be Andy Berke. He says he wants to reduce crime, support education and move the city forward. Great. That is what everyone is for.
Why won't Andy Berke tell us exactly what he plans to do. He says what he does will be based on goals. But, he will not tell us what his goals are. Why not? It has to be one of two reasons: He knows you will not vote for him if you know what he is going to do or he has absolutely no clue what to do. Either way that is scary.
The other candidate is Guy Satterfield. He has no funding but is walking the streets door to door to get his message out. Andy Berke has a door to door campaign but you are more likely to see one of his people than to see him.
You can search and research all you want but you will not be able to figure out where Andy Berke stands. You can research and determine that Andy Berke has spent a lot of time raising a lot of money. Which one are you going to vote for?
