Pam McNutt Fleenor, candidate for the Republican nomination for Chancellor, Part 1, in Hamilton County has received the endorsement of Claude Ramsey. Mr. Ramsey served as former Hamilton County mayor and, most recently, the deputy governor for the Haslam administration.
"I have known Pam as she grew up in the Harrison Community, at Central High School and at Bayside Baptist Church," said Mr. Ramsey. "Pam's incredible work ethic, her reputation of integrity, and her community service have prepared her to serve as a great judge."
Ms. Fleenor is a Chattanooga native with broad legal experience, including banking compliance, contract disputes, and real estate cases. Ms. Fleenor most recently served as a Chancery Court-appointed guardian in cases involving the most vulnerable members of our community: those facing dementia, the mentally ill, and victimized children.
Mr. Ramsey endorsed Ms. Fleenor, saying "I wholeheartedly endorse Pam and know she will preside with fairness and honesty as chancellor."
Ms. Fleenor practices law with Duncan, Hatcher, Hixson & Fleenor, P.C. She earned her law degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law after graduating with her undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
"I am deeply grateful for Claude Ramsey's support, who is not only recognized as a Republican leader, but as a tremendous public servant," Ms. Fleenor said.
Ms. Fleenor and her husband Phillip have been married for 23 years. They have two children, Griff, who attends Hampden-Sydney College, and Michelle, a senior at GPS, who will be heading to Washington & Lee University in the fall.
Ms. Fleenor will be speaking Monday at noon to the Hamilton County Pachyderm Club. The Republican organization meets at the Hamilton County Republican headquarters at 1428 Chestnut Street across from T-Bones Restaurant.
Early voting for the Hamilton County Chancellor, Part 1, begins April 16 with election day on May 6.
