I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the voters in District 7 who supported me in the May 6 Primary. Monica and I are so appreciative of everyone who volunteered and donated to this campaign. We are very proud of our campaign team and their conduct during the primary process. To my opponents who kept their word to run a positive campaign, thank you for focusing on what mattered.
I would also like to thank the organizations who endorsed and believed in my campaign: The Chattanooga Firefighters Association, Rock City Chapter F.
O.P., International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local 673 and I.B.E.W. Local 175. These men and women work tirelessly to ensure our county is safe and a better place to live and work. I'm proud you placed your confidence in me.
This process has enabled me to meet many people and make many new friends and for that I am thankful. I will continue to work in this community, something I've done for the past 40 years. Please be sure to vote in the General election in August and carefully examine both candidates seeking the job. Your vote is power.
