Joe Manuel Is The Clear Choice For Chancellor - And Response

Friday, April 11, 2014

Joe Manuel is the clear choice for chancellor. 

As past chairman of the Hamilton County Republican Party, I came to know Joe Manuel well because he served as the party's legal counsel.  I know him to be a loyal Republican and his roots run deep in our local party. 

Joe's advice and calm demeanor were invaluable to me.  He guided our County Executive Committee through a significant revision of our local party bylaws working closely with Bobby Wood, Valerie Copeland Rutledge and Jack McGill. 

The better I came to know Joe, the more impressed I was with him as a person and as a skilled lawyer.  Joe's career accomplishments are impressive and clearly make him most qualified candidate to become our next chancellor. 

I am voting for Joe Manuel and I urge you to join me in voting for Joe. 

Marty Von Schaaf 
Immediate Past Chairman
Hamilton County Republican Party

Dear Fellow Voters,

Joe Manuel is by far the best choice for chancellor. We say this without reservation, and based on years observing his character in both personal and professional situations. 

Joe has distinguished himself in the practice of law, as a mediator and an arbitrator. And, his accomplishments were recognized by the Judicial Nomination Commission in 2010, when it recommended Joe as one of three who were qualified to serve as chancellor.  

Joe also possesses the proper temperament to be chancellor.  He is able to remove himself from the emotion of the situation and apply the law to guide him to the most appropriate outcome. We are confident that he will wisely handle each case that comes before him, and that he will faithfully administer justice in Chancery Court.   

We are proud to call Joe our friend, and we know that he will serve our community well. Please join us in voting for Joe Manuel for chancellor. 

Jeff and Ansley Davis
