Pam Fleenor Thanks Voters

Friday, May 16, 2014

Hamilton County friends,  

I am writing to thank the voters of Hamilton County who supported me in my candidacy for chancellor. I appreciate your vote of confidence in my ability and my character. Without an opponent in the general election, I am both honored and humbled to have the opportunity to serve Hamilton County. I promise I will work tirelessly for you as chancellor and will serve with humility and integrity.

As a native of Chattanooga, I’ve had the pleasure of growing up alongside many of you, getting to know your families and sharing with you a deep passion for our home. It’s been a pleasure to connect with many of you on the campaign trail, as well as meet new folks whom I now call friends. It has been particularly rewarding to experience first-hand your daily dedication and vision for our community. Your efforts to make Hamilton County a great place to live and work have inspired me and my family, and I am proud to be a part of this community.  

Many of you have kindly advised that you had prayed for me throughout the campaign, and I sincerely thank you for your prayerful support. I ask that you continue to pray for me as chancellor— that I will render wise and just decisions which will edify this community and maintain the freedoms that we are privileged to enjoy as Americans.

Thank you once again. 
Sincerely,
Pam McNutt Fleenor


Howley Isn't Ready For Prime Time On Signal Mountain Town Council

I am concerned about a lack of propriety I have seen in Chris Howley, a candidate for Signal Mountain Town Council. When Mr. Howley first heard about the conservation easement agreement he posted on his FaceBook page a scathing letter he had sent the current council accusing them of having a "hidden agenda" and asking questions indicating a complete lack of knowledge about the ...

My Trust Is In Temple, Pierce And Causer

My daughter used to jokingly say, “Don't just do something!... Stand there!” Lately I feel I'm just standing there, reading relentless newsprint against two decent Red Bank commissioners up for re-election Nov. 4. We are tired of psycho-babble from campaign cheerleaders who orchestrated a “forum” (pep rally for their team – Roberts and Co.). Shame shame, Causer, Pierce and Temple ... (click for more)

Owls Beat McMinn, 30-12, To Complete Unbeaten Regular Season

Undefeated. Sounds nice, huh. After a sluggish first half that produced only three points on a Laszlo Toser field goa., third-ranked Ooltewah came to life in the third quarter, riddled McMinn County’s defense with three Kelvin Leon touchdown passes in the third quarter and went on to beat the Cherokees, 30-12, at James N. Monroe Stadium to secure the school’s third unbeaten ... (click for more)

Notre Dame Clobbers Grundy Co. For 7-AA Title

Notre Dame coach Charles Fant is always hoping that his Fighting Irish football team can get off to a fast start. He never thought it would be as quick as what he saw Thursday night at Jim Eberle Field. With a District 7-AA championship on the line on an evening when they honored all of the fall senior athletes, a football game turned into a track meet and eventually a victory ... (click for more)
