Jack Benson is seeking re-election to City Council District 4. He has my vote for numerous reasons, but primarily for what he has done for Chattanooga's animals.
He spearheaded the move toward improving their lives by working long and hard with ex-Mayor Corker, Mayor Littlefield and a few in the private sector to help raise capital from donors and animal advocates all around our city.
His passion for our animals resulted in our state-of-the-art animal shelter, The McKamey Animal Center, located in the Hixson area. At a recent campaign event, Jack announced that he expects to have campaign funds left over after the election, and he pledged to the large crowd of supporters that he will donate every penny of it to The McKamey Animal Center.
As City Council District 4 representative, Jack hosts the popular "Bark in the Park" event held annually at Heritage Park in East Brainerd. This fun-filled day offers free admission, a rabies clinic, and a huge adoption fair eagerly attended by shelters and rescue organizations countywide and from surrounding counties as well. It is a wonderful opportunity for dog lovers, friends and families to gather together in the heart of a wonderful community, as well as provide a much-needed chance for homeless animals to make it to their "forever" homes.
Jack Benson has continuously represented District 4 with unparalleled wisdom and integrity. He has not only the best interests of all Chattanoogans at heart, but the canine and feline "citizens" as well. Please be sure to "Back Jack" once again in the District 4 election. Thank you.
