No Politics, Lisa Z. Bowman Is My Choice

Friday, April 25, 2014

I’m not one to follow politics real close.  In fact, I’m not real good to why politics should play a role in the voting of people’s choice. It’s unfortunate that Paula Thompson is retiring from the position of Circuit Court clerk because she’s done a great job for the people of Hamilton County.  However, I see three candidates running to replace her and only one with any court experience.   

I see Ron Parson with law enforcement experience and I know law enforcement sometimes have to testify in court and report to the court so I know, he knows something.  I see Larry Henry and he has no court or legal experience but he has 100 percent of politics on his side, being a County Commissioner (but, I don’t vote politics).  Then I see Lisa Z. Bowman, so she has some tax issues but she admitted it and when she discovered it she took it to the IRS herself.  That took guts, not many people would take their tax screw up to the IRS knowing their going to get penalized.   

But, Lisa Z. Bowman has over 33 years of experience in Circuit and General Sessions court.  As an attorney she knows the technical inside and outs of the court process and judicial system here in Hamilton County.  She’s not the “politics” vote; she’s the most qualified “vote” for Circuit Court clerk. 

I'm voting Bowman.
