Certain pundits want Andy Berke to offer details of the immediate actions he will take if elected mayor of Chattanooga.
We find that curious. Does Chattanooga really want a mayor who professes to have all the answers and promises to make swift changes upon taking office? Or does Chattanooga want a mayor who seeks citizen input before he begins his efforts to “Renew Chattanooga?“ Does Chattanooga want a mayor with a personal agenda or one with a community vision?
Andy is smart and yes, he is driven. But he understands the importance and power of public opinion. In fact, in his mayoral campaign, Andy is using a variety of avenues to listen to and learn from citizens. These neighborhood meetings and canvasses, phone calls, and open forums are educating Andy and giving him tools to be a smarter, stronger leader.
We do not live in Chattanooga, but we have a keen interest in the upcoming election since our personal and economic well-being is dependent upon countless public and private services inside the city limits. We encourage our friends and colleagues who live in Chattanooga to vote for Andy Berke.
