In Support Of Chris Harvey

Saturday, March 1, 2014
Recently, I had the pleasure of reinventing myself with the help of my new friend, country music star Dierks Bentley and the crew of Good Morning America. It was a dream to sing our National Anthem again and honor those that have defended our freedom. I want to thank everyone that made that possible.

As you may know, I'm a retired deputy with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. I've served our community through many years with blood, sweat and tears. Through those years I've had the privilege to serve beside the brave men and women of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. One of those deputy's has advanced himself through the ranks and is now seeking to lead the Sheriff's Office. 

Chris Harvey is the only candidate for Sheriff that has served throughout the ranks and many divisions of the Sheriff's Office. Chris Harvey is the only candidate that has patrolled our streets, arrested criminals as well as strived to protect our schools and keep our community safe. He will minimize the overreach of government as Mr. Harvey is the only candidate that opposes traffic cameras and strongly supports the Constitution.

I'm confident Chris Harvey will be a fantastic administrator for the the Sheriff's Office. He will return the Sheriff's Office to balanced budgets, community involvement and stronger partnerships with surrounding law enforcement agencies as well as municipal governments.

I've reinvented myself. The leadership of the Sheriff's Office needs to do the same. Chris Harvey is the right leader and candidate to be Sheriff.

Please, join me and vote for Chris Harvey in the Republican Primary on May 6th or during Early Voting April 16th through May1st.

Another Shield Has Fallen

Grief may cause the ranks of blue To bite their trembling lip Allow firm gaze to Keep their tears at bay White gloved hands, folded flag Badges striped with black A last Radio call Fades away A haunting wail of bagpipe Drones Amazing Grace A three shot volley echoes thru the stones Our Lord has called another hero home A rose was placed upon a grave ...

Roy Exum: Already, 248 Mass Shootings

There is not a word – not one – that I can use to respond to Dr. Loretta P. Prater, whose letter in Chattanoogan.com just condemned the idea that proposed volunteers in the Chattanooga Police Department be armed. Dr. Pater signed her letter, “Mother of Homicide Victim Leslie Vaughn Prater” and I’ve no doubt there is nothing in this world that will assuage the lifelong horror she ... (click for more)
