Jerry Mitchell Is Our Choice

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Jerry Mitchell is our choice for Chattanooga City Council District 2. Our representative on the City Council should be honest, transparent and intelligent.  We both live in District 2 and our family has known Jerry since childhood and we fully trust him to represent us well.  

Jerry Mitchell has a perfect mix of both private and public sector experience. We have no reservations trusting Jerry to manage our city’s budget wisely and make fiscally sound investments for our community. Jerry has always looked to improve the quality of life for Chattanoogans and his career and service show it.

Jerry and his wife Carla are assets to this community and we hope you will join us in supporting Jerry Mitchell for City Council. Please go early vote before Feb. 28 or on election day, March 5.
