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.

Roy Exum: We Want Our City Back

Late Saturday morning, there was a driving rain as I took my khakis to be hemmed by Bruce Baird, who owns a wonderful menswear store on Broad Street, and it was glaringly obvious that what the crazies among us have done with a looney bike-lane scheme is ridiculous. There are concrete barriers, reducing Broad Street to two lanes of traffic, which I believe will impede downtown businesses ... (click for more)
