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. 
Pam McNutt Fleenor
