District 8 Needs Moses Freeman - And Response

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I moved downtown 10 years ago, as part of the live where you work program, which was started to revitalize the MLK area. Moses Freeman was instrumental in the planning, support, and implementation of bringing our neighborhood back to vibrancy.  

He is a past president of our neighbor association and an integral part of our neighborhood and district. Moses is a fair and open-minded person who will work to keep District 8 moving forward.  

We need someone on the Chattanooga City Council who will listen to the people in District 8 and respect the stances taken by the neighborhood associations. We do not need a combative representative who tells different people different things, according to what he thinks they want to hear, and does not follow through on empty promises. Moses Freeman knows how to listen to different sides of an issue and weigh the balance to reflect what is best for District 8.  

I am voting early next Wednesday, Feb. 13, for Moses Freeman. I encourage everyone in District 8 to come out and vote for Moses Freeman, a man is who sensitive, responsive, and proven.

Mrs. Webb, I have been guilty of many things in my life, but telling people what they want to hear is not one of them. My enemies remind me of this daily.

I am puzzled as to why this tattered flag is flying at a VFW post of all places.  My dad was at Pearl Harbor when the signing to end the war took place on the Missouri.  My mom was also there and worked as a secretary to Admiral Nimitz.  My ...
