Ron Parson Is Dedicated To Bettering His Community - And Response

Monday, March 17, 2014

Ron Parson has spent his life dedicated to the betterment of his community and ensuring the citizenship of Chattanooga and Hamilton County have the means to provide for themselves and their families.  

Ron Parson worked tirelessly this past holiday season, making sure in-need families had gifts for their children. Ron's participation in Shop With A Cop and The Santa Train are an example of his commitment to those in need.  

Rarely will Ron openly admit his involvement in such events, even to his friends, as he does not seek recognition, for it is his own sense of community pride and his love for this great county that drives him. Ron does not often pose for photos or statements at these events, often avoiding the media entirely so he can focus on what really matters: providing the citizens of this great county with the resources they need, when they need them.  

Ron Parson will bring this sense of community pride and civic leadership to the office of circuit court clerk, and that is why he deserves your vote in the upcoming election.

Hamilton County Government needs honest and fair leadership.  Ron Parson has a history of making false and misleading statements. He was  demoted in the Sheriff's Office from chief of patrol to captain of the Court Division. He had a subordinate do his online college assignments and gave his password to that person.

We need to change how we elect our officials, le'ts elect in someone with integrity and not Ron Parson.

As for his charitable work, it seems to me as just for publicity and to cover up his guilt for his transgressions.

My Trust Is In Temple, Pierce And Causer

My daughter used to jokingly say, “Don't just do something!... Stand there!” Lately I feel I'm just standing there, reading relentless newsprint against two decent Red Bank commissioners up for re-election Nov. 4. We are tired of psycho-babble from campaign cheerleaders who orchestrated a “forum” (pep rally for their team – Roberts and Co.). Shame shame, Causer, Pierce and Temple ... (click for more)
