Scottie Mayfield, popular dairy spokesman who previously ran for Congress, on Monday morning endorsed Rep. Chuck Fleischmann for re-election.  

Mr. Mayfield, whose family owns Mayfield Dairy at Athens, Tn., said he had not planned to get involved in this campaign.  He said he decided to do so after he was told that another campaign was saying he was supporting it.  

Mr. Mayfield said, "I felt he was the best candidate for this district.  I was planning to vote for him.  I think he's done a really good job for this district."

Mr. Mayfield and Rep. Fleischmann appeared together at a press conference at the Doubletree Hotel on Chestnut Street.

He will be the honorary chairman for the Fleischmann campaign.  He said he does not expect to go on the campaign trail very often.  

Rep. Fleischmann called it "an honor" to get the endorsement.  

Weston Wamp, son of former 3rd District Congressman Zach Wamp, is again running against Rep. Fleischmann.

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response (2)

The Hamilton County Commission just grouped a bunch of departments together in an attempt to reign in the CVB. I haven't spoken to any commissioners, but I truly believe it was unknowingly. By mandating that all non profits that receive 25 percent of their revenue follow county procurement policies, they might as well have padlocked all local volunteer fire departments. We expect ...

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

I am constantly amazed by the many emails that I receive every day. Quite curiously, I get a heavier load than I would ever have thought because the big search engines on the Internet send my Chattanoogan.com stories far and wide. Even the local ones on the Chattanooga area bring comments and I am deeply flattered. I try to read them and lament I haven’t the time to respond the ... (click for more)
