Chattanooga Deserves Roger Tuder

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

As a pastor and a concerned citizen I understand the importance of character and integrity when it deals with business and the family. I have the wonderful privilege to pastor Roger's son and his family. Because of that close connection I know Roger to be a man who is active in church and supportive of his grandchildren. He is truly a fantastic role model.

In the years that I have known Roger and Sandra Tuder, they have shown themselves to be generous and kind. They are loving and attentive to the needs of others.

Sure, others have written about Roger's business success. That is quite an accomplishment. But to be a man of character in your family life and a success in business seems rare in our time.

Please vote for my friend, Roger Tuder. His heart is honest and his ways are pure. Chattanooga deserves this type of leadership.
