20 Years As A Lawyer Has Prepared J.B. Bennett To Be A Judge - And Response

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I'm writing to express my support of J.B. Bennett for Circuit Court judge.  Recently, I had the opportunity to hear Mr. Bennett speak at a meeting.  His presentation was impressive.  

Having 20 years of experience with a major law firm uniquely qualifies him for this position.  

It will be a pleasure marking my ballot for Mr. Bennett as Circuit Court judge on election day.

When I think of a good person, J. B. Bennett comes to mind. His integrity sets the bar for others in the legal field to follow. A tireless public servant, J. B. Bennett has served our community through various civic clubs and organizations. I'm proudest of his service with the Children’s Advocacy Center assisting women and children that have been victims of abuse. Of course, each time I take my family to the Chickamauga Battlefield for a day of running, playing and hiking I can thank J. B. for his service with the Friends of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. 

When it comes to qualifications there's no question. J. B. Bennett has served as a trusted legal advisor to government officials, doctors and nurses, business leaders and private citizens. He knows the law. 

I look forward to seeing J. B.'s continued public service. He will make all Hamilton Countians proud.  J. B. Bennett will be a great Circuit Court judge.

I am concerned about a lack of propriety I have seen in Chris Howley, a candidate for Signal Mountain Town Council. When Mr. Howley first heard about the conservation easement agreement he posted on his FaceBook page a scathing letter he had sent the current council accusing them of having a "hidden agenda" and asking questions indicating a complete lack of knowledge about the ...

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)

Owls Beat McMinn, 30-12, To Complete Unbeaten Regular Season

Undefeated. Sounds nice, huh. After a sluggish first half that produced only three points on a Laszlo Toser field goa., third-ranked Ooltewah came to life in the third quarter, riddled McMinn County’s defense with three Kelvin Leon touchdown passes in the third quarter and went on to beat the Cherokees, 30-12, at James N. Monroe Stadium to secure the school’s third unbeaten ... (click for more)

Notre Dame Clobbers Grundy Co. For 7-AA Title

Notre Dame coach Charles Fant is always hoping that his Fighting Irish football team can get off to a fast start. He never thought it would be as quick as what he saw Thursday night at Jim Eberle Field. With a District 7-AA championship on the line on an evening when they honored all of the fall senior athletes, a football game turned into a track meet and eventually a victory ... (click for more)
