IBPO Endorses Joe Manuel For Chancellor Of Hamilton County

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

The International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local #673 announced its endorsement for Joe Manuel for chancellor.  The announcement comes just days after an endorsement from several former Hamilton County GOP chairpersons, urging friends and fellow Republicans to vote for Mr. Manuel in the upcoming county primary election.

The IBPO represents area law enforcement officers.  Members of the organization are active within Hamilton County, and believe that helping those in need is the first step in making this community a better and safer place for citizens.

“I am thankful and privileged to have the support of the IBPO,” said Mr. Manuel.  “Receiving an endorsement from such a fantastic group of individuals, who truly care about Hamilton County and the people who live here, is a huge honor.”

Attorney Manuel is a seasoned trial lawyer who has tried complex civil cases in many capacities in Hamilton County.  His experiences as a trial lawyer, mediator and arbitrator have carved a path for his campaign to serve as chancellor. Additionally, he has served the Chattanooga Bar Association as a member of the Board of Governors and currently serves as treasurer. He has dedicated many years of services to the GOP.

Early voting for the Hamilton County Primary is April 16 – May 1. The Hamilton County Primary will take place on May 6.
