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
