Pam Fleenor Is Prepared To Serve As Chancellor - And Response

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Pam Fleenor has demonstrated in both her legal experience and in her campaign that she’s prepared to serve as chancellor, Part 1, of Hamilton County. 

Pam began her legal practice here in her hometown in 1986. Her experience in real estate, commercial and contractual cases fit the Chancery Court. But her work as a court-appointed guardian for seniors with dementia and with victimized children makes her the best candidate whose actual experience prepares her to serve effectively.

On the campaign trail, Pam has been very committed to uphold the strenuous judicial code that mandates a narrow use of politics-as-usual campaigning.  

Specifically, Tennessee’s Judicial Code notes: “Public confidence in the independence and impartiality of the judiciary is eroded if judges or judicial candidates are perceived to be subject to political influence…judges and judicial candidates must, to the greatest extent possible, be free and appear to be free from political influence and political pressure…”

Pam Fleenor is best prepared through her own legal experience and has demonstrated her ethics by strictly abiding to requirements to serve as judge, not just a politician. 

Join us in voting for our friend, Pam Fleenor for chancellor.

I am writing in support of Pam McNutt Fleenor for chancellor, Part 1. 

I have known Pam both professionally and personally since the mid-1980’s. I have personally seen the manner in which Pam has comported herself with clients, opposing counsel and judges. I am pleased to say that each and every time, Pam has exemplified the concepts of professionalism and advocacy. She is by far the most qualified person for the position of chancellor, Part I based upon her actual experience and behavior in Chancery Court. 

May I also set forth the following for consideration:  Chattanooga lawyers preferred Pam almost three to one over her opponent in the Bar poll. 

Pam is the only candidate for chancellor who has the endorsement of retired Supreme Court Chief Justice Mickey Barker—this endorsement was made publicly by Justice Barker at the Pachyderm Club. 

Pam is the only candidate for chancellor who has the endorsement of former County Mayor Claude Ramsey, a staunch conservative Republican. 

Pam also has the editorial endorsement of both the Chattanooga Times and Free Press. 

I urge you to vote for Pam as she is the most qualified based on the above.
