I urge your support for Joe Manuel for Chancellor in the Republican primary. Joe has the experience, brainpower, and courage to make the difficult decisions that face the judges of our Chancery Court, and he has long been active in the Hamilton County Republican Party.
But despite having served in important leadership positions and other volunteer roles for the Republican Party over the years, Joe is not a politician. He is a lawyer, and has been a very good one for 35 years. During that time, Joe has handled every type of case that a Chancellor is likely to be called upon to decide.
Despite his successes, he has no ego, and remains willing to help other lawyers work through legal issues to arrive at the correct result. Joe has owned and operated his own successful law firm for many years, which says something about his character and industriousness. As anyone who has “signed his paycheck on the front” can attest, striking out on one’s own and leaving behind the security of a firm requires a high level of courage and a willingness always to do right in order to do well. That’s why I support Joe Manuel for Chancellor.
