Larry Henry For Circuit Court Clerk - And Response (2)

Saturday, May 3, 2014

 Larry Henry would be an excellent choice for Circuit Court clerk.   As a longtime friend, I have known  him through many facets of life,  I can honestly say that he has always presented himself in a genuine, responsible, caring and hardworking manner.  Even as a teen he had such compassion for the community in which he lived.  He was continuously leading our youth group through mission projects and other events that needed our attention in the neighborhood.  

After graduating from school, his heart's desire was to practice law.  He attended college, but was conscious enough to know that his dad needed him in the growing family business.  Larry chose to be at his father's side in his oil/gas business.  He always says his dad taught him many things about business, as well as many life lessons.  After his father's death, Larry continued to run the business until his retirement.  

Larry has served tirelessly as a Hamilton County commissioner for 12 years and has served as chairman for many of those years.   As a commissioner he has served his district and county well and is highly respected by many. 

Larry is an experienced businessman, always a friend to everyone, and has always been a responsible and dedicated citizen of Hamilton County.  He is loyal to his family, faith and community.  He has proven that he listens to others and makes the best decisions for all concerned.  

What more could you want for your Circuit Court clerk?    Support someone who cares.

Thank you for making the right choice.

There is no doubt that Larry Henry should be our next Circuit Court clerk.  He was a successful businessman in East Brainerd for more than 40 years, earning a reputation for honesty, dependability, responsibility, and fairness.  He brought these qualities to the County Commission in 2002, where he has served an unprecedented five years as chairman and represented the interests of the citizens of District 7 with dignity, professionalism, and common sense.  It is no wonder that Larry received the endorsements of both the Times and New Free Press for the position of Circuit Court clerk. 

Larry is head and shoulders above his competitors.  He will, without a doubt, be an outstanding Circuit Court clerk.  Join me in supporting Larry Henry on May 6.

Having worked in the legal field for the past 16 years as a court reporter, I have had the good fortune to meet and work and have gotten to know many of the people who work for the government and in the legal field in this area.   Several years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Larry L. Henry.  I was very impressed with Mr. Henry’s honesty, integrity, and his work ethic.  He is a fine, upstanding citizen of the Chattanooga area. 

Prior to becoming a county commissioner for District 7, Mr. Henry had been a successful businessman in Chattanooga for almost 40 years.  To date, he is currently in his 12th year on the County Commission.   

To run the Hamilton County Circuit Court Clerk’s office is a very important position.  It is vital for the individual who oversees the function and the day-to-day operation of the Circuit Court clerk’s office to have a sound understanding and knowledge of what this position entails.  Mr. Henry has the knowledge and he has the experience and I believe he is the only candidate running for this office who does.   This is why I am endorsing Larry L. Henry for this position.  I feel he will do his very best to make sure that the Hamilton County Circuit Court Clerk’s office runs smoothly, without fail.

Petty County Tyrants - And Response (2)

Last week's County Commission meeting was quite a show. Ironically, the preacher giving the opening invocation asked that "truth may prevail" because that is the opposite of what happened. What we actually saw was bickering, verbal attacks, and a collapse of democratic discourse. It is typically not my approach to "attack" individuals, but as each commissioner made public statements, ... (click for more)

Enforce The Bond Forfeiture In Padgett Case

Now that Christopher Padgett  was taken into custody by the Chattanooga Police Department and checked back into the Hamilton County jail, I trust the judge will do no favors and enforce the forfeiture of Padgett's entire $350,000 bond. Padgett was accused of murder, he was granted $350,000 bond and he ran. Padgett was found guilty. A convicted murderer was ... (click for more)

In the midst of what is an exciting college football season, I thought we might talk some college hoops as the Chattanooga Mocs are gearing up for what could be an amazing 2016-2017 season.
