Priscilla Simmons Has A Proven Work Ethic - And Response

Monday, February 18, 2013

As Americans we are blessed with the privilege of being able to elect our law makers and leaders.  Unfortunately our options for candidates is often disappointing.  The candidates do not have the experience, morals or ethics that we desire for our community, state or country.   

I hope that the citizens of Chattanooga living in District 2 know that they can cast their vote for a candidate for City Council in the next election that they can be very proud to have represent them.  Priscilla Simmons has the experience to fill the position of City Council person.  She has 38 years of service with the city of Chattanooga in the finance department.  She is aware of what it takes to operate a city.  She has first hand knowledge of how to prepare a city budget and other functions required for the day to day operation that keep our city government moving.    

She has a proven work ethic, and the energy and desire to do a good job.  She has a strong sense of pride in her district and the morals and determination that the citizens of Chattanooga deserve to have in their leaders.  She will be dedicated to  the citizens of her district and will represent them with integrity.

I've known Priscilla Simmons for many years.  I retired from the city after 30 years of service in the data processing division.  During that time period, I had the need to interact with the accounting department on many occasions. Anytime I needed information, I could always depend on Priscilla for timely, accurate information.   

In my mind, she was the ideal city employee.  She was always courteous, professional, and knowledgeable.  

If anybody knows the financial workings of the city of Chattanooga, Priscilla does.  I think she would do a great job for the citizens.

Policeman: Modern Day "Boogie Man"

As a child I was under the impression that a ghastly, grotesque creature had taken up residence in my bedroom closet, the proverbial “Boogie Man” I suppose.  This is not an uncommon thing among children and most likely to some fault of my own as I subjected myself to some pretty iconic 1980’s horror flicks. There were other kids in the neighborhood that not only claimed to ... (click for more)

Alcoa Run Game Has Notre Dame's Attention In 3A Semis

Notre Dame defensive lineman Robert Murphy has a good handle on what defending Class 3A champion Alcoa is likely to do against the Irish in Friday night’s semifinal playoff game at Finley Stadium. Game time is 7 p.m. “We know their running game is very powerful,” Murphy said. “They like to pound the ball and run it down your throat.” That’s exactly what the top-ranked ... (click for more)

UTC Men Defeat Coastal Carolina,78-67

UTC’s Ronrico White is use to pre-game shoot arounds, but Wednesday’s “almost midnight madness practice” 14 hours prior to tipoff against Coastal Carolina was out of the ordinary but highly effective. “My shooting touch was off (2 for 14 in the last three games) so Coach Wes Long called a shoot around for late last night and we made some adjustments in my technique and it paid ...
